No Bake Oat Cookies

Looking across a tray of no bake chocolate oat cookies.

Everyone loves a good cookie, but when camping you don’t always have access to an oven, that is when no-bake cookies become a wonderful option. This version is a sweet chocolate oat mixture.

If feeling adventurous you can substitute some of the oats for rice crispies or other cereals. Add a little dried fruit or nuts for an additional twist. There is a lot of sugar but be careful not to reduce it too much as it is part of the ingredients allowing the cookie to set.

Once the no-bake cookies are made and are set, they act and taste just like normal cookies. However, don’t be tempted to leave them in the sun in a hot car otherwise they will melt again.
