Transcript:How to Make Nut-Free No-Bake Sesame Cookies

Hi, I'm Ilyse Schapiro, pediatric dietitian and nutritionist, here for About.com to show you how to make the great sesame seed butter cookies.  They're peanut-free, filled with cocoa that you're kids are gonna love, oats for great texture and sesame seed butter, which is rich in B vitamins.

Ingredients for Nut-Free No-Bake Sesame Cookies

So to make the no-bake sesame seed butter cookies, first you need:

  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa
  • 1/4 cup margarine or butter
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup sesame seed butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup oatmeal

Make the Batter for Nut-Free No-Bake Sesame Cookies

So in a medium sauce pan, you're gonna combine the milk, the butter, the sugar and the cocoa over medium heat, you're going to let this boil for about a minute and continue to stir as it boils. You're going to remove it from the heat and stir in the vanilla. Next, you’re going to add the oats and the sesame seed butter and give this a little mix. Once the batter is well-mixed you’re going to want to put it in the refrigerator for at least 20 minutes to cool down, so it can harden.

Finish the Nut-Free No-Bake Sesame Cookies

Then you're going to drop it either by the teaspoon or tablespoon full, depending on how big you like your cookies, on a cookie sheet, topped with wax paper. So, there you have it, these great peanut-free, sesame seed butter cookies -- peanut-free, absolutely delicious, and packed with B vitamins.
