Lazy Sunday Cookies.

I have to do some tattoo work for a friend today, and knowing I'll have a sweet tooth at some point, I'm preparing!

These are the *best*! Grammy's No Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies. My cousin and I were talking about them a few days ago and so I've been thinking about them all week. I can't leave anything alone these days, so, although they have all the same old ingredients, I 'wholesomed' them up a bit (as wholesome as balls of oatmeal and sugar can get anyway!). And I also used soy milk in place of cows' milk; my neighbors are vegan and there's nothing good about cookies you can't share with your neighbors!
Or is it there's nothing good about neighbors who won't share their cookies? ;}

Grammy's No Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

2 cups raw sugar
1/2 cup cold pressed canola oil
1/2 cup soy milk
6 tablespoons cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
4 cups dry rolled oats

In a saucepan gently bring to a boil the sugar, oil, milk and cocoa powder. Remove from heat and add the vanilla and oats, stir well. Drop by the spoonful onto waxed paper and let set until hard!

These are REALLY good with raisins mixed in (I'd say at least a cup to two cups, but I was out) and a friend of mine has a recipe for peanut butter ones that she'd kill over, I'll have to snag it from her. My sister and I used to make these all the time while mum was at work because there is no oven involved. Perfect 10 and 12 year old chocolate bliss!
I wonder if my son will like baking?



  1. I am sooo going to be following in your footsteps for making these...! :D

  2. Grandma would also add raisens to these occassionally. - Mom

  3. I've made the original "No Bake Choc/oatmeal" and added crunchy peanut butter. The boys used to make them all time. I'll bet that little one will be making them too. Gail
