- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 3 cups oatmeal (uncooked)
- In a saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter.
- Add sugar, espresso/coffee and cocoa.
- Bring the mixture up to a rolling boil, then continue boiling for one minute while stirring constantly.

- Drop by the spoonful on a wax paper-covered cookie sheet and allow to cool -- it will set more quickly if you put them in the refrigerator.
