Hey guys, today we are gonna bring it all the way back to 8th grade foods! Because, who doesn’t love chocolate no bake cookies? You aren’t going to believe this but it is already getting HOT where I live.. which means it’s time to bust out all my favorite no bake recipes, and these beauties are at the top of any busy mommas list!
I’m not even lying when I say that Luke (my two and a half year old) can almost make these by himself. (**With close adult supervision, I promise!) I basically just have to get the high stuff down and then stand right there to make sure he doesn’t accidentally touch the pan while he’s stirring. Man, that boy is a great stirrer ;).

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!
Do any of you feel less guilty eating these because of all the oats… or is that just me?
