Maple Syrup No-Bake Cookies

We love no-bake cookies!  I typically make them with the whopping 2 cups of organic sugar the original recipe calls for.  I was thrilled to come across these maple syrup no-bakes that uses a healthier sweetener, less of it and has a different taste for a change.
Maple Syrup No-Bakes

5 tablespoons cocoa powder
2/3 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup butter
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 1/2 cups oats
1 tsp. vanilla

 Combine maple syrup, butter, cocoa and cinnamon in a pan.  Boil for 3 minutes, stirring constantly.  Remove from heat and stir in the remaining ingredients.  Drop on wax paper to cool.

Another variation:
2/3 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 cups oats
{These taste more peanut buttery ~ we like them both ways!}

{Original No-Bake Recipe)
(We still occasionally make them this way also)

1/2 cup butter
2 cups organic sugar
6 tablespoons cocoa
1/2 cup milk
3 cups quick oatmeal
1 tsp. vanilla

Mix together sugar and cocoa.  Place butter, milk, and cocoa mixture in pan.  Bring to boil and boil for 4 minutes.  Stir in oats and vanilla and drop on wax paper to cool.

Enjoy!
