Standing Up and Scotch Eggs – Whole 30 Day 3

    I just wanted to thank Toni for posting this recipe!! My one son is a pretty picky eater and chocolate is not his favorite thing. He does like peanut butter and so I’ve been making no-bakes but without the cocoa for him. I saw this recipe and knew I had to make them for him! He doesn’t like coconut or nuts so I replaced the coconut with additional oatmeal and left out the nuts. They were excellent! He took them to school along side traditional no-bakes for his homeroom class on his birthday and the kids were begging him to get the recipe so their moms could make them too! Thanks again!!

    I make No-bakes without peanut butter because of allergies, but I bet you could leave out the cocoa powder and have vanilla cookies…

    Mix and boil 2 minutes:
    2 cups sugar
    (1/3 cup cocoa)
    ½ cup milk
    ¼ cup butter

    Remove from heat and stir in:
    3 cups oatmeal
    2 teaspoons vanilla

    Optional stir-ins:
    ½ cup raisins
    ½ cup coconut

    Drop by teaspoonfuls onto wax paper and let cool.

    I have one:

    2/3 c milk
    2 c sugar
    1/2 c butter
    1 pkg INSTANT vanilla pudding powder
    1/2 tsp vanilla
    3 1/2 c quick oats

    combine milk, butter, sugar in saucepan. Cook on medium until comes to full boil. Boil 2 minutes*. Turn off heat. Add vanilla, pudding mix, & oats. Let sit for 5 minutes. Drop onto waxed paper.

    * I never, ever have gotten these to fully set up like the photos in the original recipe, and the original recipe says boil 2 minutes. I boil 4-5 minutes and they set up, but are still somewhat gooey and sticky, not fully solid like a correct no-bake should. But they taste so good that I let it slide, lol. I live in a humid area of the country so a 2 minute boil is guaranteed saucy goo. My regular no-bakes (the chocolate kind w/peabut butter and cocoa) always need about 4 minutes. Also, the pudding flavor can be whatever kind you like as long as it’s instant.

  5. Maggie the Cat says

    Okay, I fiddled with the recipe today and have adjusted it so that it DOES set up for me.

    1 1/2 c sugar
    1 stick butter
    1/2 c milk

    1 pkg INSTANT pudding (any flavor)
    3 1/2 c oats
    1/2 tsp vanilla

    Heat sugar, butter, milk on medium to full boil and let boil for 4-5 minutes (or less if you live in a dry climate, it’s always humid here so I always have to boil no bakes for around 4 minutes). Add pudding mix, oats, vanilla and drop onto waxed paper to cool and set up. (I skipped the 5 minute wait time that my previous recipe had). With the lower amounts of milk & sugar they set up completely solid like they ought to! Success!
