Day 10

Today’s photo was taken while being silly in our kitchen after making no-bake chocolate/peanut butter oatmeal cookies.

The picture’s stats:

Also, for anyone who is interested here is the recipe Rachel made up for the cookies. They are quite tasty but very filling. Also, they are best served with a glass of milk!

  • 3 cups of oats
  • 3 tbsps cocoa
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • Heat butter milk and sugar in a small sauce pot on the stove. Let boil for one minute and then remove from heat. Place cocoa and vanilla in a large mixing bowl. Pour heated mixture into the bowl and stir. Add the peanut butter and stir until melted/dissolved. While stirring, add the oats. Place heaping tablespoon sized portions on wax paper. Allow to sit for several minutes until cookies have “gelled.” Enjoy!

Note to self: remember to try this recipe with a handful of craisins sometime…
