Maisie found a no bake cookie recipe in her math book and begged to make the cookies saying that it would help her learn math. Yeah I fell for her line and we made cookies. They’re super simple and actually tasty, a bit like candy. So she learned some math and we got some tasty cookies, not a bad deal.
Math Book No Bake Cookies
1/2 cup sugar
4 tsp. cocoa
3 TBS. milk
3 TBS. butter
2 packets plain instant oatmeal (or 1 cup quick cooking oats)
1 TBS peanut butter (we used smooth)
In a medium microwave safe bowl add the sugar, cocoa, milk and butter. Microwave on high one minute then stir to mix all the ingredients. Heat again on high for one minute allowing the ingredients to "boil" together. Remove from microwave and stir to mix then add the oats and peanut butter and stir to mix completely. Using a small Tablespoon scoop or Tablespoons, drop by Tablespoon full onto waxed paper. Refrigerate to set. About 18 cookies.
I like the way Maisie thinks! It wouldn't take a lot to convince to make these :)ReplyDelete
Oh, I love these cookies. Sometimes I add coconut. :) How cute that the recipe was in a math book.ReplyDelete
