Reviews for No-Bake Chocolate Oat Cookies
"Used 2% milk because it was what I had on hand and based on other comments, stirred in 1/2 c. peanut butter. Perfect...exactly what I remember no-bake cookies tasting like!"
"Love these. They are so easy to make. I was thinking that I might add some peanut butter to the recipe the next time I make this. I'm glad to see others have already done this with good results. Thanks for sharing."
"I also added peanut butter to the liquid mixture after boiling it... turned out great!"
"I've been making these for years they are great. I also add peanut butter to my recipe and it makes them even tastier. I just add half cup of it to mixture. i leave out the coconut since some of my grandkids like it and some dont."
"Yes, I have used Splenda in this cookie - comes out fine! Also use it in most of my pies/no problems."
