Ready to make some? Good, you'll need this...

1/2 cup (56 g) of natural cocoa powder
1/2 cup (118 ml) of milk
2 cups (383 g) of sugar
3 cups (241 g) of quick oats
1/2 cup (90 g) of your favorite peanut butter
1 teaspoon (4 g) vanilla extract
Put margarine, cocoa powder, milk and sugar in a large saucepan (about 3 quarts) over medium/low heat.
Stir frequently to prevent burning and to blend the ingredients.
When your chocolate coating is all creamy and smooth, bring it to a gentle boil.
Boil for 1 minute.
Then remove your pan from the heat. Add oats, peanut butter and vanilla extract.
Stir until it looks like this...
all mixed up.
Then you can drop scoops of your mix onto wax paper to make cookies.
Or press the batter into an 8 x 8-inch (20 x 20 x 5 cm) pan to make bar cookies.
Let the cookie mixture cool before cutting into squares.
