Who doesn’t love a good batch of homemade cookies? But let’s face it, sometimes we just don’t have the time or energy to turn on the oven and spend hours baking. That’s where these no-bake cookies come in! With just a few simple ingredients and minimal prep time, you can have a batch of delicious cookies ready in no time. Perfect for busy weeknights or when you need a sweet pick-me-up.

different types of oats

The recipe calls for old-fashioned oatmeal, which is thicker and chewier than instant oatmeal. If you prefer a smoother texture, you can substitute instant oats. Steel-cut oats would also work in this recipe, but have a chewier texture than rolled oats.

peanut butter substitute

For those with peanut allergies, almond butter or sun butter can be substituted for the peanut butter. Just be sure to use cream and not crunchy for best results. You can also use peanut butter in this recipe.

Non-Dairy Milk Replacers

For those who are lactose intolerant or prefer non-dairy milks, you can use milk substitutes such as almond milk, soy milk, or oat milk in place of cow’s milk. Keep in mind that the final texture may vary slightly.

gluten-free alternatives

For those who are gluten-free, rolled oats labeled gluten-free can be used in place of regular rolled oats. You can also use gluten-free oat substitutes, such as quinoa flakes, amaranth flakes, or millet flakes. These substitutes have a similar texture to oatmeal and can be used in the same proportions that recipes call for.

frequently asked questions

Can I use a different type of sugar?

Yes, you can use brown sugar, honey or maple syrup in place of white sugar in this recipe. However, the texture and taste of the cookies may vary slightly.

what can i use instead of butter?

You can use coconut oil or margarine instead of butter. Keep in mind that the taste may vary slightly.

Are there any mixins I can add?

Yes, you can add things like raisins, chocolate chips, or nuts to the mixture before dripping them onto the wax paper. The total amount of extra you mix should not exceed 1/2 cup or the cookies may have a hard time sticking together.

Can I make these cookies vegan?

Yes, you can use vegan butter and plant-based milk substitutes in place of butter and milk, and vegan sweeteners like agave nectar or maple syrup in place of white sugar.

How do I know when the mixture is done?

When done, the mixture should be thick and glossy. If it is too thin, it may not set properly. If it’s too thick, it’s probably too dry. You can adjust by adding more milk or oats as needed.

Do not bake cookies on cookie sheets.
