Easy no bake chocolate oatmeal cookies recipe that is simple to make, the kids love them, and Mom is happy it only takes one bowl. One of our favorite desserts!
Place the first 5 ingredients into medium sized (4-6 quart) pot on stovetop. Over medium-high heat, bring the ingredients to a rapid boil, stirring occasionally. Let boil for 1 full minute, then remove pot from the heat.
Stir in peanut butter and vanilla extract until smooth, then stir in the oats and walnuts.
Using a medium sized cookie scoop, drop the cookie dough onto parchment lined baking sheet. Place in the fridge for a half hour, and they should be set. Enjoy!
