No Bake Cookies from Storage

When you live at least thirty minutes from any grocery store, it pays to have what you need on hand. I not only have what I need, I have (a lot of) back-up stored. Today was a prime example. I have a friend who is having a very quickly scheduled surgery and our small group is providing meals for the family. These need to be gluten free and have no salt. Easy peasy. My go to gluten free dessert is No Bake Cookies and almost everyone loves them.

 My Faded Recipe Card:

Dump the first items in, boil for a couple minutes. While I was adding ingredients I need to replenish my sugar and Hersey's Cocoa. I always have extra on hand. Sugar, cocoa and cocoa are some of the items that you are able to store for a VERY long time. I took my time, but I now have enough to last the rest of my life. Seriously.


After boiling then add vanilla, peanut butter and oats. I also make my own vanilla extract. It is so simple to do, only takes about 10 minutes to prepare. 
Stir, then I pour the cookies out onto parchment.  I don't drop them into cookies, I smooth it out and then cut into squares when cool. 

What I do here is simply share our preparedness journey. If you liked this post we would love it if you joined our Perky Prepping Gramma community on Facebook, comment or share. Plus it would just make my day. The cocoa below is a six pack.
