Now let’s get to a couple frequently asked no bake cookie questions!
Can you use old fashioned oats in no bake cookies?
Yes! Absolutely. I typically use the quick cooking oats because that is what I have on hand and they are cheaper. That being said, I’ve made this recipe using both and they both work and taste great to me!
Do no bake cookies have to be refrigerated?
Nope, they don’t! As long as they are stored in an air tight container they will last about a week. Some people like them cold, so whether or not your store them in the fridge comes down to personal preference!
How long does it take for no bake cookies to harden?
About 20-30 minutes depending on the temperature of your fridge!
