No Bake Cookies without Peanut Butter

I had a friend ask me if I had a recipe for No Bake cookies without the Peanut Butter due to allergy reason's in her family. So I looked around and found this one. I have not tried it so I don't know how comes out but thought I would share in case others have the same problem:

3 Minute No Bake Cookies

* 2 cups granulated sugar
* 8 tablespoons margarine or butter
* 1/2 cup low-fat milk
* 1/3 cup Nestle Toll House baking cocoa
* 3 cups Quaker Oats (quick or old fashioned*, uncooked)

In large saucepan, combine sugar, margarine, milk and cocoa. Bring to boil over medium heat, stirring frequently. Continue boiling 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from heat. Stir in oats.* Drop by tablespoonfuls onto waxed paper. Let stand until firm. Store tightly covered.

*If using old fashioned oats, cool mixture in saucepan 5 minutes.

  4. Easy and delicious recipe. Although I'm surprised more people haven't discovered "School Safe Peanut Butter" aka Soy Butter. It can be found almost anywhere. I have a peanut allergy and this (if I didn't know any better) tastes just like Peanut Butter (only without the possible COD) lol. But we just substitute the Soy Butter into the recipe instead of Peanut Butter and TADA!! You've got peanut free peanut butter no-bakes.

  8. If you add shredded coconut to the recipe it tastes really good and sets better! Also I throw them in the freezer for an hour after they are on the baking sheets then you can eat them a lot quicker!

  11. I have always cooked this recipe without the peanut butter - I am 45 and have been cooking my moms recipe since I was 14. I didn't even know it had peanut butter until years later. This recipe is almost identical to the fudge icing on 7/10 layer cake without the oatmeal...my kids love it...Hope that it will be the generation recipe to pass on :)

  12. My son is also allergic to soy and cannot have bakers chocolate, can cocoa be used instead and what measurement?

    1. It does say cocoa in the recipe, not chocolate chips as I'm sure many people were thrown off by when then saw "Nestle Tollhouse." But most all no bake/choc oatmeal cookies (PB or not) call for cocoa as the source of "chocolate." Hope that helps. :)

  13. 1 problem for those with peanut allergy to note, Nestle toll house chocolate chips have a peanut warning on them due to being processed around peanuts, you will want to go with hershey milk chocolate chips which are peanut free to be safe.

  14. Made these today using rice milk instead of regular and lactose-free butter. They held up well after adding 1/2c more of oats! Thanks for the recipe they were sweet, chocolate-y and yummy!

  15. Delicious! My Mom always made them without peanut butter, but it took me a while to find a recipe without it. I also added a little vanilla right before I stirred the oats in :)

  16. Just made these, and they turned out great! Stove's broken, but it cooked up fine in the electric skillet. Also no wax paper, so I put them in muffin cups. It made exactly 12 full ones.

  19. Love this recipe. You can't just eat one. (Try it...you'll see.) My daughter has a peanut allergy so we use Hershey's brand cocoa. The cookies turn out great! This is the recipe I used a long time ago, but couldn't find it, so I'm glad you posted it here.
