No-Bake PB Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Ahh, the perfect on-the-go treat. These little guys only take 15 minutes to make, start to finish! They’re great if you don’t have a lot of ingredients around and there is absolutely no need to turn on your oven. Awesome, right?! Another thing I love about this recipe is that you don’t have to have chocolate chips on hand. For me it seems like I always think I have chocolate chips on hand when in reality I don’t… wishful thinking perhaps? However, you can substitute the cocoa powder for them if you really want to. Anyway, I’m really glad I made these and that they tuned to be so tasty! I’m always looking for yummy no-bake recipes and this one is definitely a keeper.

  1. Woah! Freaky! We seriously just made these to take on our road trip with us last week! Aren’t they just the best? Mine weren’t as perfect as yours though ๐Ÿ™‚ We love to use old-fashioned oats in ours.

  2. It says 4 Tablespoons of butter or 1/4 stick ….. That is wrong!! 4 Tablespoons of butter is 1/2 stick!! Just in case some aren’t familiar with baking and measurements!
