Eric's Preacher Cookies

free of gluten & soy (to make them dairy-free use non-dairy milk & coconut oil in place of butter)

shared by Carrie Forbes on


2 cups granulated sugar

1/2 cup butter (1 stick)

1/2 cup milk

1/2 cup powdered cocoa

1 tsp. vanilla (opt.)

1/2 cup peanut butter (opt.)

2 - 2 1/2 cups certified gluten-free oatmeal


Melt butter in a medium sized saucepan until sizzling. Add sugar, milk, and cocoa. Stir thoroughly to remove any lumps in the mixture. On medium-high heat, stir constantly as mixture begins to boil. Boil additional 3-5 minutes stirring constantly. Remove from heat and immediately add vanilla and peanut butter. Mix thoroughly. Add oatmeal and stir until combined. Drop by tablespoons onto wax paper and let cool for an hour before serving. (These cookies can begin to harden quickly, so drop them on the wax paper fast!)

Yields 1-2 dozen cookies depending on size.
