Can this be made without the PB? I have all the ingredients minus the PB, which is why I ask.

Hmmm... well, I've never done it that way but I don't see why it wouldn't work. It may affect the texture.

Suz, I'm sure you could. "No-bakes" are an infamous recipe from my youth. We used to call them "chocolate oatmeal cookies" most of the time. I've made them so much, I know the recipe by heart:



Mix 2 cups sugar (2 cups!) with 3 Tablespoons cocoa in the bottom of a large saucepan.

Mix in 1/2 cup milk.

Turn on medium heat, add 1 stick margarine/butter (about 1/2 cup), and stir till melted.

Bring the mixture to a boil, and boil for 3 minutes.

Remove from the heat, add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

Add 2 1/2 - 3 cups oats (not quick oats), stirring to coat

Quickly drop them by spoonfuls onto wax paper/cookie sheet and let sit until firm



Seriously, easiest cookies in the world to make and even my crazy omnivore co-workers have loved them.

I've made them before without all of the listed ingredients... and they never really came together. They tasted okay, just never solidified like they should.



I have that problem when baking (or in this case, not baking) things. I remove one element or change one minor detail and end up screwing the whole thing up.

Well, the no-PB recipe I posted isn't just the OP's recipe without the peanut butter (there's a boatload more oats, for instance), so you should be fine.



I may have to make some of these cookies now.

I added molasses to this recipe yet this really doesn't yield much. These came out pretty decent.

Here's a vegan version that I like to make if it helps:



No Bake Carob Oatmeal Bars (Vegan).



Ingredients



1/3 cup almond milk

3/4 cup agave nectar

1/2 cup carob powder

1/2 cup Earth Balance butter

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 cup all natural peanut butter

3 cups quick cooking oats



Directions



1. In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, mix almond milk, nectar, carob powder, and 'butter.'

2. Bring to full boil for 3 minutes, whisking constantly.

3. Remove from heat and add vanilla and peanut butter.

4. Mix well, then stir in oats and blend well

5. Put into greased 8 x 8 inch pan and refrigerate



Makes 32

That's cool and all, but the other versions are vegan too.

Lol! Sorry, not a carob lover here. I really think those are few, far an in between..



Give me chocolate!!





These Chocolate Oatmeal cookies sound delish! some are cooling in the fridge as I type..

Just made these and they're yummy! (they're supposed to be cooling on the counter, but patience is not a virtue I have when it comes to these sorts of things)



The only thing I'd change is the cinnamon. I like cinnamon and all but it's a bit too *present* in these cookies. I'd say 1/2 tsp would be better, imo

Thank you very much, Brazilnut, for the very easy sounding vegan recipe. Your recipe looks good too, Alicia. I have all the ingredients so will have to try! I like carob too, by the way. :-)

Has anyone made these with something other than maple syrup? Like agave?

No, but if I were going to use agave I would use less of it. It seems to be more potently sweet than other liquid sweeteners. You could start with less and add until yu have the desired sweetness. I don't think the lesser volume of liquid would have too much of an effect in this recipe unless it was significant (could always reduce the oats a bit too if that was an issue)

I'm going to try these now. In Holland very difficult to find vanilla extract so should I use vanilla sugar instead?

That should work just fine. You can leave out the vanilla too, or sub some other flavoring that complements chocolate. Or, you could get vanilla pods...

I made them and they were so easy to make and yummy. I used less sugar (only 1 and a half cups) but hubby and I still found them a bit too sweet. Do you think it would work if the next time I just put a tablespoon of sugar in and maybe some coconut? Or would that mess up the texture?

Alicia - could you roll yours into balls instead of bars or are they better as bars? I am thinking of making these tomorrow!



Thanks!

I made these tonight and they are sooooooo good! My omni family devoured them (my parents are visiting. They ate them, my DH ate them and my twin daughters)! I think we have a winner for when we want something sweet!
