Leave the Oven Off Cookies

Written By Pam Brandon and Anne-Marie Denicole On August 3, 2011

No_Bake_CookiesSummer is no vacation for moms – swimming lessons, tennis lessons, sleepovers, beach vacations and neighborhood cookouts . . . it’s 24/7 duty.   And then we hear, “I’m bored.”   

So get the little buggers in the kitchen – and let them practice math while they measure.   Here’s a recipe with just five ingredients, and all you need is a pan, a spoon and a baking dish.  This cookie bar reminds of us the old-fashioned no bakes our own mom used to make, but this version adds crunchy granola and dark chocolate chips.   

Maximum good, minimum clean-up. And best of all, the oven stays off.

Leave the Oven Off Cookies
Makes 1 dozen

3 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
3 tablespoons smooth peanut butter
1 1/4 cups favorite granola
1/2 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips

Melt marshmallows and butter in a medium saucepan over low heat. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter and granola.

Spoon into a 6×8-inch baking dish; moisten hands with water and press mixture into pan. Sprinkle top with chocolate chips, pressing into mixture.

Cool at room temperature for 30 minutes, then cut into 12 bars.
