No-Bake Chocolate Oat Cookies

This is my son's all-time favorite cookie. He will share just about anything, but these are an exception...he gobbles them up! Coconut and oats provide the chewy texture. —Carol Brandon of Uxbridge, Ontario

    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'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.

    Could you use the regular Smart Balance in this recipe instead of butter or margarine?
