These are Mark’s absolute favorite cookies! He often asks me if we have any oats so he can whip up a batch.  I once bought a 20lb bucket of quick cooking oats so the answer could always be yes. Now, I just add more oats when the bucket starts to get low.
These were very commonplace in my childhood, and now they get to be a part of my kids’ memories too. Granted, with a recent diagnosis of a nut allergy (both tree nuts and peanuts), Lincoln skips enjoying these with us, but to make it up for it I always make sure to have another treat on hand for him. Or sometimes I’ll even make our Peanut Free No-Bakes just for him.
For other tasty variations, try exchanging the Peanut Butter for your favorite sandwich spread. We love them with Nocciolata, Nutella, Almond Butter, and more! There’s really not a wrong way to eat these cookies.

Enjoy! These go great with a large glass of cool milk. Don’t tell, but I’ve eaten about 4 of these just while typing up this post.
