No Bake Oatmeal Cookies are among only a handful of no bake cookie recipes that call for oatmeal..

They’re simple. They’re quick. They call for healthy, basic ingredients you have in your cupboard right now. And as an extra bonus, they’re really pretty, too!

Quick tip: the cookie dough consistency may vary depending upon the peanut butter brand you use. If the dough is too dry to form balls, add a teaspoon or two extra of maple syrup. If the dough is too wet, add a tablespoon or two extra of oatmeal.

Prep time: 15-20 minutes
Makes about 2 – 2 ½ dozen cookies
