I just love desserts that don’t require you to heat up the oven. This is as easy as stirring all the ingredients in a pan and dropping the batter onto parchment paper and just waiting for them to set.
I’m sure everyone has had no-bake cookies before and these are Weight Watcher friendly so you don’t feel so guilty eating them.
I prefer storing these in the fridge so they stay set. These cookies take up to an hour to set, but if you let them set in the fridge you can eat them faster!
Makes 30 to 35 cookies. I used the smallest ice cream scoop to make the cookies.
- 1â2 cup light butter
- 1â2 cup 1% low-fat milk
- 2 cup white sugar (feel free to use sugar substitutes if you want or try less sugar)
- 3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1â2 cup reduced fat peanut butter
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1â4 tsp salt
- 3 cup quick cooking oats
- 1â2 cup pecans, chopped
- Mix together butter, milk, sugar, and cocoa powder in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil and cook for 1 minute. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter, vanilla extract, and salt. Stir in oats and pecans. Using a small cookie scoop or teaspoon, drop onto wax or parchment paper. Allow cookies to stand for 1 hour or until set

I have tried making these with only 1 cup of sugar, and they come out to be 3 Smart Points per cookie. Feel free to use 1 or 2 cups.
