Use the microwave to make these very quickly and with no chance of burning.

Stir the following items together and Microwave them on High for 4 minutes.


Mix in first:
1 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
4 Tablespoons margarine
cup milk
a pinch of salt

Now mix in:

cup peanut butter
teaspoon vanilla
Last stir in:1 cups oatmeal

Use 1 teaspoon to make 28 small mounds on waxed paper. Microwave and Enjoy!.

I LOVE those cookies, Suncoast. But we always used confectioners sugar. At the end, you say "microwave and enjoy." Do they get microwaved again after you mound them? If so, how long is the 2nd time?

Thanks for sharing.

I haven't made these in a while, but once you mound I do not believe you microwave them again. I made a mistake while I was typing. Sorry!

I made the oven version of these cookies this weekend and I've never knew there was a microwave version! I'll have to try it, after I get over the stomach ache I got from eating too many of my cookies

I've never seen an oven version, nor have I cooked them in the microwave. I've always melted everything in a pan on the stove & spread on the wax paper. These truly are wonderful & easy. I'll definitely microwave it next time.

Smile No bake oatmeal/peanut butter cookies

My neighbor gave me the recipe for no bake oatmeal/peanut butter cookies & they turned out very good. Heres the recipe if you dont have it.
First put 3 cups of quick rolled oats, 1/2 cup peanut butter & 2 tablespoons of vanilla in a big bowl. Then mix in another bowl (microwavable) 1/2 cup cocoa or karob, 1/2 cup butter, 1/2 cup milk & 2 cups sugar. Mix together & microwave for 3-4 minutes. Pour over the oats, etc then mix all together & drop onto waxed paper. Let dry till firm in freezer or fridge. I managed to make about 15 nice sized cookies with this recipe & they are delicious esp when cold.

These are the best cookies. A lady in our church used to make them for my boys when they were young. Her own grandchildren didn't like them and my boys loved them. Guess who was met at the door with a secret stash every Sunday?!

I only have 3 cookies left. Im such a pig. Ill make a fresh batch sunday for SNF. This time ill double everything. They really are delicious cookies. I gave a few to my neighbors & they wanted the recipe so i gave it to them. I prefer cocoa over karob. The cookies go great with a cup of real hot chocolate.
