Expert Tips

  • Set a timer for 60 seconds once your mixture really starts to boil to make sure you don’t overcook or undercook your cookie mixture. If you don’t boil long enough your cookies won’t set right and if you boil them for too little they will be dry.
  • Use a cookie scoop to make scooping your cookies easier and faster. If you don’t have a cookie scoop available, use an ice cream scoop instead.
  • When storing your no-bake oatmeal cookies, wait until your cookies have completely cooled and place them in an airtight container between sheets of wax paper to keep them from sticking together.
  • Add a light and nutty crunch by trying crunchy peanut butter instead of creamy!
