No Bake Cookies for a Blue Monday

Every 'Blue Monday' calls for a sweet treat.
Do you remember those cookies we all made it Home-Ec? Just a hand-full of ingredients (that you probably have in the pantry) and you can have cookies in just a few minutes. I tried using Steel Cut Oats ~ in a effort to make them a touch healthier.
Chocolate Steel Cut Cookies
2 cups sugar
4 tablespoons cocoa
1 stick butter
1/2 cup milk
1 cup peanut butter
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 cups oatmeal
1 cup steel cut oats
Waxed paper
In a heavy saucepan bring to a boil, the sugar, cocoa, butter and milk. Let boil for 1 minute then add peanut butter; stirring until smooth. Remove from the heat. Stir in vanilla and oatmeal. On a sheet of waxed paper, drop mixture by the teaspoonfuls. Let them sit until they are cooled.
The steel oats are nuttier, still yummy.

Don't forget to check in at Smiling Sally for more blues.
y'all enjoy~

You're stretching the Blue Monday theme, Sandi, but it is true that when blue, cookies taste yummy.
