No Bake Oatmeal Cookies

When I wasn't yet blogging, one of my past times was cooking/"baking", which my friends and I call "Pa-cham", short for pachamba chambang luto. Haha! I love those quick and easy recipe that requires just a pan or the microwave oven. Since during that time, we didn't have a stove, I was using our ever reliable rice cooker to cook whatever I want to cook, yes including this recipe which I'm about to tell you. Anyway, I have made this no bake oatmeal cookies a few times in the past already. I made some again two weeks ago (as usual, late post, booo!) because my little guy doesn't seem to enjoy his usual oatmeal breakfast (with fruits) anymore. Thus, the twist. :-)

No Bake Oatmeal Cookies

There are actually a lot of recipes on the web. I followed so many already. Thanks to all those who posted theirs. :-)

In the end, I came up with this mix and match recipe. Kakachamba, ayan ang naging resulta. Hihi! Feel free to adjust or change any part of the recipe according to your preference. 

Here goes:
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 to 1 cup sugar (Although I am a dessert lover, I don't want this recipe to become too sweet as I'm making it for my son.)
  • 1/2 cup evaporated creamer
  • 4 tbsp cocoa
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 3-4 cups quick cooking oats
  • Raisins
  • Dash of Cinnamon Powder
  • Dash of Nutmeg

  1. Turn the stove in medium high.
  2. Heat the pan. Add the butter. Once melted, add the sugar, evaporated creamer and cocoa. Mix until well blended.
  3. When the mixture is at a rolling boil already, remove from heat and add the oats, peanut butter and raisins. Sprinkle a dash of cinnamon powder and nutmeg. Mix until well blended. 
  4. Scoop a tablespoon and drop on a plate. If you have a wax paper, that's much better. You have to work fast as this sets very quickly. 
  5. Once it's all cooled down, you can chill it in the fridge for better result. 
  6. It's moist and chewy. Enjoy!

* We didn't have white sugar when I made this no bake oatmeal cookies so I ended up using 1/2 cup of brown sugar instead. 
* You may also add ripe banana in this recipe.
* I learned that in cooking this, you should never let the mixture at a rolling boil for longer than a minute. I'm not sure where I got that tip though. If you happen to know, please comment below so I could give proper credit. Thanks! ☺
* We have an electric stove now, by the way. Thanks to my bestfriend for gifting us the stove last Christmas. ☺
* And oh, our "ever reliable" rice cooker has given up on me already. :-(

Anyway, my two babies (yes, including the big guy) liked it. So happy as always. ♥

P. S. If you notice, in this no bake oatmeal cookies recipe, I made use of several ingredients. One day while I was doing my usual blog hop for CommEx, Maan of Davao Mommy shared this wonderful video about making oatmeal cookies using only three basic ingredients! And "baking" it in the microwave! Isn't that amazing? I was glad that I had the three basic ingredients mentioned in the vid so I made some two days after I made the above cookies! Haha! Will blog about the result. Go and check out the vid on her blog, I'm sure you'll love it as much as I did! Super thanks Sis Maan for sharing the video. It was really helpful! ☺
