No bake drop cookies

Both of these cookie recipes are super simple because they are done over the stove top in a saucepan.  

No Bake Chocolate Drops

2 cups sugar
2 Tbsp cocoa
2 Tbsp butter
1/2 cup milk
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup peanut butter
2 cups certified gluten free oats

Mix sugar, cocoa, butter and milk in a medium saucepan.  Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and add salt, vanilla and peanut butter.  Stir until melted, then add oats.  Mix well.  Drop from spoon onto waxed paper.  Let cool.

Peanut Butter Clusters

2 cups Sugar
1/2 c milk
1/2 c butter
1/8 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup peanut butter
3 cups certified gluten free oats

Combine sugar, milk, butter, and salt in medium pan. Bring to a boil. Allow to boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla, peanut butter, and oats. Stir until mixture begins to stiffen a little. Drop onto wax paper and let cool.

Be sure to use certified gluten free oats.  I recently bought some in bulk on line from Amazon.  I paid $22.28 for a pack of 4, 32-ounce bags of  Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Whole Grain, Rolled Oats. And it qualified for free shipping!  It was a great price and no hassle since it showed up on my doorstep.
