This is my mom's recipe, although I'm sure many people have this as a family recipe. My mom made these for me and my brothers all the time when we were kids. We usually add a little extra peanut butter to ours (we LOVE PB).

1 tsp
vanilla extract
3 - 4 Tbsp
peanut butter
2 Tbsp
cocoa powder
3 c
oats, quick cooking

Directions Step-By-Step

In small bowl, combine oats and cocoa powder (this keeps the cocoa powder from clumping), set aside.
2
In large saucepan, combine butter, milk, and sugar. Cook over medium to medium high heat until boiling. Boil 1 minute, and remove from heat.
3
Add vanilla extract and peanut butter, stir until smooth, and peanut butter is completely melted.

Add the oats and cocoa powder mixture, stir until combined.
5
Drop by tablespoonfuls onto waxed paper to cool. You can also pour mixture into a buttered 8 X 8 square pan to cool if you prefer bar cookies.
