I haven’t been feeling well lately.  I just started work in a doctor’s office, and even though it’s not that kind of doctor’s office, I’ve still been exposed to a ton of new viruses.  I’ve pretty much been incapacitated for the week — kind of moving around like a zombie, propelled only by cold medicine and food cravings.
Well, one of those cravings was for cookies.  But the idea of mixing up a regular batch of cookies was just exhausting, so when I stumbled across this recipe, I knew it was the one to make.  These no-bake cookies are wonderful.  They’re fudgey and chocolatey and completely delicious.  They also take about five minutes to whip up.  I can handle that, even in my sickly state.
Chocolate Peanut Butter No-Bake Cookies20 cookies
2 tablespoons milk2 tablespoons cocoa1/2 tablespoon applesauce2 tablespoons + 2 teaspoons sugar1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons oats3 tablespoons peanut butter1/4 teaspoon vanilla
Combine the milk, applesauce, cocoa, and sugar in a small saucepan and slowly bring to a boil.  Let boil for two minutes, then remove from heat.  Pour the cocoa mixture into a medium bowl and add the oats, peanut butter, and vanilla.  Mix well, then drop by rounded teaspoon onto a plate or cookie sheet.  Refrigerate until cool, about one hour.  (Or just eat them warm.  They’ll just be a bit sticky.)
