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!. And I also used almond butter in this because my tummy is not real fond of peanut butter, which is actually a legume and not a nut. But you can use your favorite nut butter and it should work just fine!

This recipe is naturally gluten-free.
