Gluten free delicious no bake cookies

Today I thought I would share with you a favorite family recipe.  We are a family with multiple food allergies, so this recipe has been modified to be gluten free and milk free (we can have butter in moderation). If necessary, it can be modified back to include regular milk.

Gluten Free Delicious No Bake Cookies

Combine in a large pan and boil for one minute the following ingredients:

2 c. sugar

1/2 c. rice milk (we use Rice Dream)

1/4 c. cocoa (gluten free/dairy free brand)

1/2 c. butter

Add until smooth

1 tsp. vanilla

1/3 c. peanut butter (if you have peanut allergies, use sunbutter instead)

Remove from heat and and add –

3 c. oatmeal (gluten free brand)

Stir and drop by tablespoon on a cookie sheet. Cool in the refrigerator before enjoying.

Yield: 18-20 cookies.

And now for a funny story that correlates to the above recipe…

Last Wednesday I made my husband Lon his favorite cookies – the above-referenced no-bakes. I didn’t realize he had a checkup at the doctor’s office that day to renew his CDL. Needless to say, Lon has to go back and have a blood test before they’ll issue the CDL because his sugar levels were off the charts. Hmmmm. After some prodding, he admitted to me that he ate 14 no-bakes in the couple hours before his physical, LOL!

  1. Thanks for the recipe, Penny! They sound yummy. What a funny story with your hubby! My hubby is the same way. I have to hide the cookies or brownies when we have them in the house. 🙂

  5. I Love! these cookies, but never tried gluten free. I keep mine in the freezer and have them for snacks and lunch, basically-until they’re gone 🙂
