Use quick oats. I like mine a little dryer so I boiled for 2min. Either way don't start the timer till its at a full boil. Only used 1/2 cup peanut butter. Also only used about 1-2tsp vanilla and the vanilla must be added last after everything is stirred in. Add last few ingredients fast and stir fast.  item not reviewed by moderator and published
Recipe calls for way to much oatmeal!  You'll end up with a crumbly mess if you use 3 cups! item not reviewed by moderator and published
i use my stand mixer to add peanut butter and hot cocoa mis  (slow speed) works well i also use splenda granulated instead of sugar...also works well item not reviewed by moderator and published
3 cups of oats or oatmeal? They're different!  item not reviewed by moderator and published
Like many other folks here I have been making these for many years. A number of ingredients can be tweaked for individual preference. I think the reason so many folks have problems getting them to set up properly is this recipe calls for too much peanut butter and too much vanilla. I have always used 1/2 cup peanut butter and 1 teaspoon of vanilla and they turn out fine. I also prefer half and half quick oats and old-fashioned. To my taste, if I use all old-fashioned they are too dry, with all quick oats they are too mushy. You do have to work quickly and add the oats, peanut butter and vanilla (pre-measured) as soon as they come off the stove, then drop in large spoonfulls onto pre-buttered foil or similar non-stick surface. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I have made these for 40 years. Recipe has two mistakes 1) one teaspoon of vanilla, not one tablespoon. Also, if you want your cookies less "runny" you need to boil for 2 minutes, not one minute. Hope this helps! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I did this recipe ended up having to add another 2/3rds cup of Oatmeal for it to be solid in the bowel before placing. Made 12 larger sized cookies. item not reviewed by moderator and published
absolutely perfect. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made half the recipe and it made just over 2 dozen cookies. The vanilla should be teaspoon, not tablespoon. I did add a bit more unsweetened coca and less oatmeal (1 C for half recipe) and a dash of salt. You need a heavy pot and keep stirring while boiling for ONE minute. Remove from heat, fully melt peanut butter in hot mixture, add vanilla and oats. Drop on waxed paper quickly because the pot is still hot and drying it out. Leave alone to set up completely. Rolled oats makes it a little more crunch, quick oats is softer. item not reviewed by moderator and published
these taste great as long as you use a gluten and soy free butter, and peanut butter free of oils and soy free. Mine came out perfect! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love no bake cookies. But for some reason they didn't turn out. This is the first time I've used this recipe. Why does this recipe call for 1 tablespoon of vanilla and the others call for 1 teaspoon? item not reviewed by moderator and published

Probably one of the best no bake recipes I have made. Here are some trouble shooting tips for those who are having issues. For those who are having problems with DRY cookies: Do not use quick cooking/instant oatmeal. That's most likely your problem. It has to be the long cooking oats. For those who are having soupy/flimsy cookies: Cook the sugar/butter/milk mixture at least 2 minutes AFTER it starts to boil. Add in the peanut butter and incorporate fully. THEN add in the oats. I usually just spread on a cookie sheet instead of dropping them onto waxed paper. Personal preference because it saves time. If you like it a little more chocolatey, add another TBSP of cocoa powder. item not reviewed by moderator and published
After reading the reviews, I kept the mixture boiling as I added the peanut butter and oatmeal and left it boiling for 1 more minute. The cookies came out dense and the oatmeal tastes soft (cooked). Next time I will only use 2 1/2 cups of oatmeal though, they seem a little thick, not at all like the picture. Very yummy though!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I like this recipe but I put 2 and 1/2 cups of oatmeal. 3 is a little much to me and makes it too dry. item not reviewed by moderator and published
There's no way that recipe should set up. I've been making no bake cookies for over 35 years. I bring all the ingredients to a boil, except peanut btr, oats, and vanilla, and boil for about 4 minutes, add the peanut butter. when that is melted I remove it from the heat and add the vanilla, and then the oats...works every time. item not reviewed by moderator and published
my family has made these for years but one suggestion is to scoop the mix into mini muffin tins and let them set up in those makes them so much nicer. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Well,after reading the directions and then watching the video,the woman didn't concentrate on the it was written.She spent more time talking.She didn't mention about letting the mixture come to a boil for a minute before adding the peanut butter and oats.She was so busy talking that she added the vanilla too soon. item not reviewed by moderator and published
We made these in my culinary arts class and they were ok I didn't like how the oats tasted. They were really hard, however some of my friends made them using rice krispies and they were A LOT better! She also added marshmallows if you like them. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I just made these and they looked like they were not going to set up, so I put them in the freezer...They are more of a candy than cookie, but they sure are good...Used 1 cup of half sugar and half Stevia...Plus, 1/3 cup coconut... item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is NOT recommended for high humidity climates. Not recommended anywhere, honestly, as is, unless you're going to eat it straight out of the bowl. Made exactly as directed...it was a soupy mess. Added one more cup of oatmeal. That seemed to tighten it up, but it did NOT harden. Tried the fridge...hardened to a manageable "bendable" and then returned to a goopy mess. Tried to freeze them, they re-softened to a goopy mess after about 20 minutes. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I LOVE no bakes! My mother had me making these when I was in grade school. I use 1/2 cup cocoa and 1/2 cup peanut butter (I prefer chunky, but either chunky or smooth will do), and I boil (1 stick margarine, cocoa, sugar and milk) for 3 minutes at medium heat then add peanutbutter, quick cooking oats (or the oatmeal won't have time too cook) and vanilla (vanilla bean paste makes it even better!). item not reviewed by moderator and published
As written the recipe is too sweet. I reduced the sugar to one cup and used 1/2 cup brown sugar. I used quick cooking gluten free oats and added chopped peanuts on top. Cook the mixture for 3 minutes before adding the oats. They have to be refrigerated to set up. Great gluten free recipe for a nice fudge- y cookie. Next time I will try with one cup of brown sugar only. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These are gross- I threw them away. I should have known better when looking over the ingredients.. If you like rich, sugary candy- then these are for you. I would much rather take an extra three steps to make real cookies. Also-I had to put them in the refridgerator for an hour for them to harden- so they actually took longer then regular cookies. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have made these for years! They are SO much better with unsweetened baking chocolate and a bit of vanilla. Cocoa doesn't give them the right, rich taste. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I listened to the reviews, reduced the sugar, added a tad more cocoa, let it boil longer and used a little bit more oats (quaker old). It's a hit, they love them. It's also simple enough that I can tweek and add different things later to experiment. Yay! item not reviewed by moderator and published
The peanut butter flavor wasn't overpowering which was nice. It's a great recipe to make if you want a to make a treat without heating up your house. A little too dense. But the flavor was great especially if you garnish with a couple dark chocolate chips on top. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I loved how easy these cookies were to make. I added 1/3 c. cocoa to make a deeper chocolate taste. I'm not sure why so many people commented that it requires quick oats. Old fashioned oats is all I ever use and they were fine. No problems. I did boil the mixture for 3 minutes. These cookies set up quickly! Yummy.

Me and my whole family loves these cookies! The first time I made them I found out that QUICK oats are needed. None of the recipes I've seen specify that. I just read the comments by glassgow1_4222801 saying the mixture (before adding the peanut butter, vanilla, and oats) should come to a rolling boil and then add 1/2 cup milk. I've never tried that ... maybe next time. Oh, and I did add some coconut this time. They are kind of soft but they taste so good who cares? item not reviewed by moderator and published
These were absolutely delicious, but they didn't harden very well. I followed the directions precisely, and they came out very tasty, but very soft. Would refrigerating them help them to harden? Not sure what else to do. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My mother made these for years. She always put them in the refrigerator after making them. If you're in a humid climate, or yours don't set up for some other reason I suggest doing that. Yes, the chocolate can get a bit grainy if you leave them in too long, so don't do that. Add shredded coconut if you like, too. item not reviewed by moderator and published
If you want cookies that look and taste like the store bought ones, use QUICK OATS (1-minute oats) to get the same consistency. I found these cookies to be a bit on the sweet side. Took out 1/2 to 3/4 a cup of sugar from the recipe with good results. Taste like the store bought stuff. Just remember this recipe requires QUICK OATS and you'll be okay. Took off 2 stars because recipe didn't specify type of oats and because it was way too sweet. item not reviewed by moderator and published

way to dry and crumbly. To much pb, not enough cocoa. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've tried this recipe countless times and my cookies never harden. Always piles of mush. I followed the recipe exactly with no substitutions for any ingredient. I have tried boiling for one minute - mush. Boiling for 2.5 after initial boil - still mushy. I've even recently boiled for 3 solid minutes and got the same result. Anyone have a cure? item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made these exactly as the recipe stated and they are THE BEST no bake cookie I have ever had, bar none! I don't know what others are doing wrong, but I use real butter, 2% milk, real vanilla, unsweetened cocoa powder, granulated sugar, store brand peanut butter and quick cooking oatmeal. They turned out great and hubby will be thrilled. He's been digging us out of 19" of snow for the past two days while he's supposedly on "vacation", so I thought these would cheer him up. ;) item not reviewed by moderator and published

Super easy to make. I didn't add the vanilla and used unsweetened cocoa powder. I found that if you pour the oats into a large bowl and then add the liquid mixture into them you didn't have the concern of burning the mixture. I also used a small ice cream scoop for quick distribution. So far they are really tasty and they haven't even set completely yet. Can't wait to dig in!! item not reviewed by moderator and published

Wonderful I have been making these for years and they are a family favorite. It's a wonderful treat for gluten free diets since it has no flour. I like to add raisins as well an addition to an already wonderful recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've made these for 50+ yrs, but our recipe is a little different. Instead of cocoa, we used 1 square of baking chocolate. We used margarine instead of butter, quick oats instead of regular, and we did not add vanilla. We also only used 1/2 cup of peanut butter. Everything was measured and ready at the beginning. We combined the choc, sugar, marg, and milk to heat/melt and blend together before the pot came to a boil. We removed it from the heat after it boiled the 1 minute, then added the pb and oats as quickly as possible, got it stirred in, and started dropping the teaspoonfuls before it stiffened up. By removing it from the heat after the boiling, we did not have problems with the mixture burning or getting hard in the pot, other than a thin layer left behind after we scooped out the spoonfuls (we didn't have teflon either). The last of the batch were a little crumbly, but still tasted good with a glass of milk. I'll have to try them with butter now that I no longer use marg. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very tasty and easy...only thing I can add is that there is no serving for this. I halved the recipe and came out with a dozen. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I would suggest if you make them, measure out the peanut butter, vanilla, and oatmeal beforehand because it is very easy to burn them. Also, be aware that these left a mess in my saucepan. Perhaps its just because I burnt them, but it was a pain to clean out the pan afterwards, since they had already hardened in the pan. Besides that, they were very tasty albeit a little too crumbly. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These have been my favorite for years. Now my kids love them and as young as they are it's perfect for them to make without the oven. I use Sunbutter instead of Peanut butter since I'm completely allergic to peanuts. Tastes very good. I do know what peanut butter tastes like, but I became allergic to it later. Sunbutter has gave me the joy of the same taste of peanut butter back. It's also gluten free. item not reviewed by moderator and published

These turned out perfect! I noticed there were some comments about them being too sweet so I used unsweetened cocoa powder and they are just right.

My Grandmother made similar cookies for me as a kid 40 yrs ago. They are still my favorite cookie today. She didn't add peanut butter. If you have peanut allergies or want to try this cookie without peanut butter simply delete it from the recipe and add 2 more tablespoons of cocoa. I cook mine with only half a stick of butter and bring to full boil for 2-4 minutes. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have been making these cookies since 1968 but my recipe calls for 1/2 teaspoon salt and only 1/4 cup butter, 1/2 cup peanut butter, and 1 teaspoon vanilla. I bring to a boil over medium high heat and boil for 1 1/2 minutes exactly before adding the remaining ingredients. Because they are so addictive, I cut the recipe down to only make a few when I'm craving them but don't want to eat a whole batch! Here's the measurements I use to make 6-8 cookies depending on how big you make them. 1/2 cup sugar 1 T. cocoa 1/8 tsp. salt 1 T. margarine 2 T. milk 2 T. peanut butter 1/4 tsp. vanilla 1/2-3/4 cup quick cooking oats item not reviewed by moderator and published

In order to give an accurate review, I followed the recipe to the letter. These were surprisingly good, despite how much sugar is called for in the recipe. I used a cookie scoop and got 35 cookies out of the batch. However, I find them just a bit too sweet, so next time I would cut the sugar by at least a 1/2 cup and add about a 1/4 tsp of salt. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I've been making these for 4 decades, & this recipe is off. You must boil the sugar mixture for 3 full minutes, stirring constantly - you're sorta making candy. Also, that's too much PB! I swear by 1/3 cup. Indeed, 3.5 Tbsp. is plenty of cocoa. These are sensitive to humidity in the environment, so you can't just dump in 3 cups of oats. Stir in 2, then add the 3rd slowly, stopping when mixture is slightly runnier than perfect. The oats are cooking as you work, & if it's too oat-y, mixture will seize up long before you've dropped half of the cookies. First few cookies will be slightly runny, so make smaller than avg. Then suddenly the mixture reaches perfect viscosity, & at that point, work fast! Still, the last couple will be a bit dry. Posted video is useless. Vanilla is added too soon, final consistency of mixture is not shown - nor that of finished cookies, & she rolls rather than drops cookies. It is not hard, but recipe requires more finesse/attention than she gives it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've been making these cookies for 40 years and I have learned some tricks to make them come out successfully each time - especially when it comes to the cookie's texture and why they sometimes don't harden properly! First of all, these cookies are similar to candy - IF it is raining or has rained the previous day or is expected to rain the next day from when you want to make the cookies - DON'T MAKE THEM - they will not harden properly...and they will be sugary. The humidity makes all the difference! I only make them when there is NO rain in the forecast! Trust me...if you have had this problem, RAIN is the reason why! Also, there should only be 1/2 cup peanut butter (I like to use crunchy in the recipe. I think 1 cup would tend to make the cookies much softer which could keep them from setting properly. I wouldn't recommend substitutions - always use QUICK OATS. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The taste was out of this world, however I found that the cookies did not set. I will cook the syrup for a little longer next time. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Also - I watched the video AFTER I made them since I have made these for years. She didn't let the mixture boil. She said herself she never had made them before. Perhaps she needed to test the recipe PRIOR to "Cooking Live". Ha! And I wouldn't recommend kids to help in the kitchen when making these. The sugar is too hot and will burn them. You also don't roll them. You just drop them onto a cookie sheet or spread in a pan. Trip down memory lane! I forgot about that show!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
FYI - This option did not work for me. I did exactly as you stated but the batter became curdled. I kept stirring the mixture on the stove to make sure it did not burn. Not sure why it did not turn out? item not reviewed by moderator and published
Chocolate is sensitive to temperature so it can burn even if you're stirring it also even something as small as a drop of water left in the pan after washing can cause it to curdle. Chocolate does not like water. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Cook it for about 1 min 45 sec once the mixture is boiling. You have to use quick oats oatmeal (can not use old fashion). Also found that Jif peanut butter works the best. A very creamy peanut butter like Peter Pan does not work well. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Did you do a rolling boil for 1 minute? If they aren't boiled well enough or if there isn't enough oatmeal it can have problems setting up. item not reviewed by moderator and published

The easiest way to clean a pan with stuck on food is to put about a 1/2 inch of water in it with a dribble of Dawn dish washing detergent and put it back on the stove on the lowest setting.
