I have a very long and fond history with this recipe for chocolate oatmeal no-bake cookies. You see, when I was in middle school I had to take a home economics class. And remember it very well. In that class, we learned the basics of cooking and sewing and I still have all of the recipes that we created….written in my oh-so-large, pre-teen handwriting.
This recipe was one of my favorite ones from that class, and I’ve been making it for years. Of course, I did change some of the ingredients to make it a little more nourishing…but it still tastes so yummy! I also used almond butter in this because my tummy is not really fond of peanut butter, which is a legume and not a nut. But you can use your favorite nut butter and it should work just fine!
I love making these cookies for holiday events. They work well as simple gifts too. This is a great recipe to have your kids help make. I learned this recipe when I was fairly young and many kids will be excited to help. Especially if you let them lick the bowl!
These chocolate oatmeal no-bake cookies are naturally gluten-free.
