No Bake Cookies I Recipe

No Bake Cookies!!!!! oh… the love ūüôā

I found a recipe for no bake on  allrecipes.com we tried it out and it was pretty good but I changed somethings to make it way better. I must say as far as cookies go theses pack a healthy punch.

Peanut Butter No Bake

1 3/4 cup sugar

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup milk

1/4 cup or 4 Tablespoons cocoa pd

3 cups rolled whole oats

1/2 cup Adams peanut butter

1 tsp vanilla

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 cup mini M&M’s

1/2 cup Raisins

1/4 cup raw pumpkin seeds

1/2 cup chopped nuts

In a sauce pan heat butter, milk, sugar, and cocoa. Bring to a boil and cook 1 1/2 minutes. Take off heat and add peanut butter, salt and vanilla. Then mix in remaining ingredients.  Scoop into desired size cookies on a silpat   sheet and let cool.
