Chocolate Peanut Butter No-Bake Cookies

Ok, a lot of us have probably had some version of these delicious little no bake cookies. They have chocolate, peanut butter and oatmeal in them for starters. I just recently found out about quinoa, from my mom, and it's an amazing little grain. So I thought I would try these today with some oatmeal and some quinoa. Wow, it worked out well, and gave them a more rounded flavor.

Here's my recipe:
2 Tbsp. Butter/Margarine
1/2 c. Milk
2 c. Sugar
3 Tbsp. Cocoa
2 c. Quick Oats
1 c. Quinoa
1 tsp. Vanilla
1/2 to 3/4 c. Peanut Butter

Bring butter, milk, sugar and cocoa to a boil. Then boil one minute.

Remove from heat and add vanilla and peanut butter mixing well.

Then add quinoa and mix well.

Add oatmeal and mix again.

Here's a closeup and what it will look like after it is combined. Let it stand until it starts to set up.

Then drop the mixture by the spoonful onto a sheet of waxed paper. Now, sit back relax and enjoy these yummy cookies! I am sure going to do that right now! :)
