There are as many names for these cookies as there are variations. My family calls them haystacks, my husband’s family calls them unbaked cookies. Where we live now, they make them without raisins or coconut, and some add peanut butter.

However, for today I am going to show you how to make them like my husband loves them, because he is usually who I make them for.

Unbaked Cookies/No Bake Cookies/ Haystack Cookies or Whatever Your Family Calls Them

Ingredients Needed

First get out a big pot. Place butter in the bottom and put on the stove over medium heat.

What I love about using my soup pot for  this recipe is that it makes the recipe a one pot clean up.

Once your butter is almost melted go ahead and add in the sugar and milk.

Keep whisking the ingredients frequently until they reach a frothy boiling point. Then add in the pure vanilla and remove from heat.

Quickly add in the oats, cocoa, raisins, and coconut.

Stir all the ingredients together well.

My favorite part of making these cookies is cleaning out the pot with a spoon afterwards and enjoying the warm chocolatey goodness.

No Bake Cookies

How about you? do you know any recipes that seem to have many names and variations?

  2. Mmm, love these! We call them no bake cookies, but we don’t add the coconut (sounds delicious though!), or raisins. And we do add peanut butter. Sooo good!
