In a quest to find delicious gluten-free recipes that gluten eaters will enjoy as well, I stumbled upon peanut butter whimsies – a buttery treat that requires no baking. Almost always when peanut butter is involved, the result is most delightful due to the rich flavor and filling nature of peanut butter. With few ingredients, these cookies will leave your kitchen smelling delicious and those who pass through yearning for some of the delivious treat. After one bite, you won’t be able to resist another.
The recipe was taken from the Family Cookbook Project website.
~ 2 cups sugar
~ 1/2 cup almond milk (or regular milk)
~ 1/4 cup butter
~ 1 cups peanut butter
~ 3 cups rolled oats
1. Mix sugar, milk and butter in a saucepan. Bring to a boil.
2. Add peanut butter and stir until smooth. Add oats and stir until well-integrated.
3. Drop spoonfuls onto wax paper. Cool and enjoy!
These treats are simple and quick to make and they’ll be sure to please the entire crowd. They taste great right after they cool or several days later. Be sure to have a glass of water or milk on hand as these are quite the decadent treats.
