No-Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies
One of the kids favorite cookie recipes for me to make, is No Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies. These are also known as: Preacher Cookies, No Bake Sunbutter Cookies, No Bake Oatmeal Cookies, No Bake Chocolate Cookies, No Bake Peanut Butter Cookies, and No Bake Nutella Cookies.
This particular recipe can be tricky, sometimes the cookies don’t want to set right. I have found that by using specific name brand ingredients, SALTED butter (not margarine), and paying careful attention to the timing, I have better luck getting these to turn out right. I prefer to use:
- Domino Sugar – I buy the big bag at Sam’s Club.
- JIF Peanut Butter (can substitute for Sunbutter, Nutella, Peanut Free Planet has links to other peanut alternatives for those allergic, etc. Chunky tends to make the cookies drier though!)
- Quaker Quick Cooking Oats
- Hershey’s Cocoa
- Watkins Vanilla Extract – I by mine at Amazon. When I was little my mom used this, she knew someone who sold it, I think, but I don’t know anyone who does, so this is where I get mine. I’ve heard it’s available in some stores now, too.
