No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

Can't bear to start your oven on a hot summer day, but you are really craving cookies? Don't have a lot of time nor do you want much of a mess to clean up? Then these are the perfect cookies for you.  They are richly chocolaty with a great peanut butter taste, not to mention super easy to make. Enjoy!

3 T butter 
1/4 cup soy milk (or milk of choice)
1/3 cup granulated sugar
2 heaping tablespoons cocoa
1/2 cup semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips 
1/4 cup peanut butter (I prefer all-natural peanut butter)
1 1/4 cups old fashioned or quick-cooking oats (not instant)
2 TBS oat bran

Melt the butter on the stove or in the microwave. Add the peanut butter and stir until incorporated. Remove the pan from the heat and allow the mixture to cool slightly (you don't want to fully melt the chocolate chips). Add the sugar, cocoa and milk and stir well. Stir in the chocolate chips, the oats and oat bran. Stir until thoroughly combined.

With wet hands or a mini ice cream scoop, place little balls of the mixture on a wax paper lined plate or pan. Refrigerate for thirty minutes or until hard.

Makes about 18 large (TBS-size) cookies.
