peanut-free no bake cookies

As I have shared before, my hubby is allergic to peanuts.  Sad thing is, he was allergic to chocolate (I know, crazy, huh?) when he was little and so therefore enjoyed peanut butter tremendously as a substitute.  Well he outgrew the chocolate allergy and then was allergic to peanuts.  Poor thing.  Anywho.  I have now made it my mission to make his favorite recipes that include peanut butter with the amazing I.M. Healthy Soynut Butter that even a peanut butter lover like myself can't taste too much of a difference.  My grandma has made amazing "peanut butter" fudge with this soynut butter...and if you can make tasty fudge with it, I'm sold to the idea that you can make any peanut butter dessert with it.  So the first recipe that I tried was one of Justin's favorite cookies...no bakes.


Ingredients:
-2 cups sugar
-1/2 cup milk
-1 cup soynut butter
-3 cups rolled oats
-1/2 cup butter or margarine
-1/2 cup cocoa powder
-1 tsp. vanilla

To make:
-Mix sugar, butter, milk and cocoa in a saucepan.
-Boil this mixture for 1 minute (time it for 1 minute exactly when you start seeing bubbles...this is one of the tricks with no-bake perfection)
-Pour mixture over soynut butter, vanilla, and rolled oats in a bowl.
-Stir until well mixed.
-Drop by rounded teaspoonful on wax paper.
-Let stand for about 2 hours before serving.
(Recipe states this makes 3 dozen...my cookies were larger and just made about 2 dozen.  Choose your own desired size.)

 *Substitute peanut butter for soynut butter to make the original recipe.

Enjoy!
