I thought I'd start off my family recipe recreations with these no bake chocolate oatmeal cookies. These are THE cookies. You know, those ones that are made every year for holiday cookies, for any bake sales, and whenever you just need cookies that are guaranteed to come out right.
No Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies
2 C sugar
6 Tbsp cocoa powder
1/2 C almond milk
1/4 lb. vegan butter
2 1/2 C. oats
1/2 tsp vanilla
Add the sugar, cocoa, almond milk, and vegan butter into a sauce pot and boil for 2 minutes while stirring.
Let cool slightly and mix in the oats and vanilla.
Drop spoonfuls onto wax paper, let cool and harden. (Place in fridge if needed to let cool.)
Store in a container at room temp or in the fridge.
I think this recipe originated from my Grandma, but my Mom made them all the time when I was growing up. We also called them "Chocolate Drop Cookies" since you drop them onto the wax paper. They are simple and quick, and are super chocolatey!
What are your family's favorite no fail cookies?
Thanks for stopping by!
