Quick No Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies Recipe
No Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies from my arthritis cookbook were a huge hit at my exercise class. I was going to my exercise class on Sunday at the YMCA and remembered I had promised everyone a treat. So, with a little over an hour before I had to leave I thought about what ingredients I had at my house for a cookie recipe that I could whip up easily? I immediately thought about my chocolate no bake cookies recipe. Not only are they quick to make but my no bake chocolate cookie recipe has oatmeal, peanut butter and chocolate–all my favorite ingredients. I brought the cookies and EVERYONE wanted the recipe. No Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies are so easy and I told everyone I would put the recipe on the blog.
Make My No Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies Ahead of time!
I also like my chocolate no bake cookies recipe because you can make them ahead of time. Make the cookies and lay on a waxed paper lined baking pan. I put them in the refrigerator to harden which honestly doesn’t take much time at all. Then, I transfer the no bake chocolate cookies to a zip lock plastic bag as you can store them much easier this way. They also freeze great so you can pull out a little chocolate cookie to satisfy your sweet tooth.
