Recipes: No bake oatmeal cookies

I checked on line for oatmeal cookies and on Kraft food i found recipes of users:
some of them had their no bake oatmeal cookies recipe:

i wanted to give a try:
3tbs cocoa
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup margarine or butter (I used grape seed oil as i want to avoid both)
1/2 cup milk

all the above put in pot and blend

then in cake mixer bowl pour it and add the following ingredients:
1/3 cup peanut butter
1/2 tsp vanilla (i used Amaretto)
1 1/2 cups oatmeal

drop sponsize on wax paper - refridge 10-15 min

My notes: it stayed soft even the day after and no, it wasn't like a cookie. It was so soft and delicious though.

Next time i will add the amount of oatmeal and see if it will be firmer. Will get back about this later. In the meantime there is a nice batch of oatmeal drops to be enjoyed. I'll have some for breakfast. Another note, i added a handful of dried cranberries, yummy
