  1. Combine sugar, milk, butter, and cocoa in a saucepan. Bring to a boil and cook until sugar dissolves, about 1 1/2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter, oats, coconut, and vanilla extract. Roll dough into walnut-sized balls and place on waxed paper. Let cool until hardened.

Footnotes

  • Editor's Notes:
  • Denise's Tip: Start timing when mixture reaches a full rolling boil; this is the trick to successful cookies! If you boil too long the cookies will be dry and crumbly. If you don't boil long enough, the cookies won't form properly.
  • This recipe is a healthier version of No Bake Cookies I.

It flies in the face of the recipe name...but we added mini marshmallows before rolling. The kids loved them!

These were really sweet! I am not sure these can really be called healthy with all of the sugar. I remember the regular version from when I was a kid, but didn't compare. These haven't set up ye...

I have made these twice now. The first time they didn't set up like I had hoped for. This time, I boiled the sugar, milk, butter and cocoa for about 2 minutes. When I added the oatmeal, I used...

Delicious! I substituted Splenda for the sugar and I didn't put as much butter - only about 1.5 tbsp. I added honey to help it stay together and let them sit overnight. Only yields about 15 coo...
