Original recipe yields 5 dozen cookies



  1. Line baking sheets with waxed paper. Mix the oats, coconut, and peanut butter in a bowl until thoroughly combined.
  2. Place sugar, cocoa powder, butter, and milk in a large saucepan, and bring to a boil over medium heat. Stir until the mixture is smooth and the sugar has dissolved, about 1 minute; remove from heat. Mix the oat mixture into the liquid mixture; stir in vanilla extract.
  3. Scoop up about 1 tablespoonful of the dough, roll it into a ball, and flatten. Place on waxed paper, and allow to cool.

The secret to making these set up is not to boil them too long. The long 1 minute boil makes them gummy. I mix over a slow heat untilthe sugar is dissolved then bring it to a boil then IMMEDIATELY remove it as soon as it starts boiling... from the heat and spoon out on wax paper. We have been using this recipe for years and it is great. I also use 1 cup of pecan pieces too.



In order for these cookies to set up, do the following. Mix the oates and coconut in a bowl and set aside. Place sugar, cocoa powder,butter, peanut butter and milk(I like evap milk) into saucepan. Over medium heat cook and stir until smooth and liquid. Let it come to a boil, now here is the trick, let boil without stirring for 2 1/2 minutes. Remove from heat and add vanilla and oat mixture, then continue with recipe. Hope this helps those who have problems with this recipe setting up.



There is definately something wrong with this recipe. The proportions must not be right because it is far too runny to shape in to balls...
