"These cookies were always served for school lunch. I got the recipe after marrying from one of the cooks, and have made it many times since. This cookie generally is seen with cocoa, but I like this one better, it doesn't have any."

I loved these as a kid, but after bariatric surgery knew I'd never have another...until today! These still favorites were modified using 1c Splenda, JIF Simply Peanut Butter, and I Can't Believe It's Not Butter. I may not have knocked out all the fat, but I definitely reduced fat, calories, and sugar. Great for diabetics too!
This recipe could definitely could use some alterations! 2 1/2 cups of sugar is sufficient. 3 cups made it excessively sweet. Should be called "Peanut Butter Oatmeal Fudge Cookies. Try adding 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips along with the oatmeal. Also, these are very rich so keep them to a maximum 1 1/2 inch diameter.
I cooked for about 2 minutes instead of 1. My friends (and I) loved this recipe. It was the only one I found without cocoa (I was out). I put them in a small dish to cool and cut into bars instead of drops. Worked great.
Start timing your boil after the syrup comes to a rapid boil that you can't stir down. I have the oatmeal and peanut butter measured into a large crock bowl. I pour the syrup over that mixture and begin to stir. You can tell by looking at the mixture that it is ready to drop onto a silpat mat. These are wonderful!! No need to add extra oatmeal at all, or to cook longer than one minute if you get the syrup to a rapid boil before you start timing. They are peanut butter no bakes, there's no chocolate added because they are PEANUT BUTTER no bakes.
These are great, but I don't think they look as good as they taste. I lined a 9x13 pan with parchment paper and spread them out it in. I sprinkled mini chocolate chips on top. When cool, I removed the parchment paper and cookies and cut them into squares! Much more appealing when added on a tray with brownies and rice crispy treats for my daughter's volleyball team.
There aren't enough "stars" to rate this recipe. These cookies are literally to-die-for!! If you are a peanut-butter lover...This is for you!
I thought the cookies were very good with the exception of being a little too sweet.I will make them again and cut the sugar down to 2 1/4.
These cookies are great! I highly recommend them if you love peanut butter. They did remind me of peanut butter fudge, and thats my all-time favorite.
