looking for a no-bake sweet treat for that nagging sweet tooth? and hey, it's got whole oats and peanut butter so it's basically healthy for you too, right? ( lol, that was my sweet tooth talking!) i made these yesterday, and half the batch is gone already!

bring 2 cups organic sugar, 1/2 cup soy milk, 1/4 cup cocoa and 1/4 cup earth balance buttery spread to a rolling boil for 1 1/2 minutes.

take off the burner and quickly stir in 1/2 cup organic peanut butter and 3 cups whole (not the quick cooking variety!) oats.

spoon onto a cookie sheet (using parchment paper makes for easy clean up) and cool completely. makes anywhere from 12-18 treats depending on how big or small you make them.

eat. enjoy!
