No-Bake Travel Cookies from Darren Alff
Its been a while since we have had a guest recipe here on the pages of THC but I am honoured to have this gem from Darren Alff of BicycleTouring Pro.com If you have a great recipe you want to share do please get in touch.
This is a simple recipe for no-bake
cookies that any traveller will appreciate. No stove required! All you
need to make these tasty treats is one large pot, a stove or fire,
some waxed paper, and the following ingredients:
- 3 Cups of Oatmeal
- 2 Cups of Sugar
- 4 Tablespoons of Cocoa
- 1 Cup of Peanut Butter
- 1 Stick of Butter
- ½ Cup Of Milk (I use water because I
don’t like milk and it’s easier to find when traveling)
- 1 Tablespoon of Vanilla
Pour the sugar, cocoa, butter and
milk/water into your pot and bring it to a boil. Stir until
everything is melted. Then add the peanut butter, vanilla and
oatmeal. Stir continuously for a minute or two until the mixture is
Then, lay out some waxed paper (or if
you are traveling, any flat non-sticky surface). Using a spoon, drop
the cookie mix by the teaspoon onto the waxed paper. Let the cookies
cool and once they have hardened they are ready to eat. Enjoy!
