Mini No Bake Oatmeal Cookies

These mini no bake cookies are both addicting and adorable.  Because everything small is adorable, right?  I have an unhealthy love for these no bake cookies.  They are peanut buttery, chocolaty, and oatmeally.  The texture of the chewy oatmeal and the smooth chocolate binding meld so well together.  Keep these in the fridge for a sweet treat or take them to a party where they’ll be sure to please!

      1. Thank you Crystal, do you by any chance know if Splenda would work or if I really need to use sugar? Just checking if I have to just eat one as I’m a diabetic but my husband LOVES these and he is a diabetic but he doesn’t watch what he eats so I don’t make them very often so I was hoping your recipe doesn’t use as much sugar or that you would say Splenda would work. I haven’t tried it yet with Splenda.

        1. Hi Melody! I actually wanted to cut the sugar down to a half cup, but the original recipe calls for 2, so I wanted to make sure it would taste ok. I have not tried it with Splenda, but I bet it would work. You could also try half Splenda, half Sugar. You might try it with Splenda and then taste the chocolate peanut butter mixture before you mix it with the oatmeal, in case you need to add more (or add some sugar). Please let me know how it turns out!

          1. Thank you Crystal I will give it a try. BTW, I am a diabetic who lost 85 LBS and am not on ANY medication including insulin. I was on 64 units of insulin a day before I lost the weight. I did have gastric bypass about 4 years ago as I couldn’t lose it any other way and felt with renal insuffiency stage 3 caused by Metformin I needed to do something to try to get the diabetes under control. My husband on the other hand, doesn’t try to do anything, and his father died of diabetes complications after he had his leg amputated below the knee and then above the knee. He does take Metformin which his dad refused to take medication but I don’t think that will help him much in the long run with all the sugary things he eats. The doctor lectures him every time he goes so he cancelled his last appointment, it wasn’t a necessary appointment actually so I didn’t make him go. Doc was just going to yell at him again. He didn’t want me to reschedule him but I did for January (after hunting season). He would be due to go in December which is hunting season which is his only hobby).

          2. Wow, congratulations! That is a HUGE feat! There is a history of type 2 Diabetes in my family, so I also need to be careful about what I eat. I have tried the 21 Day Sugar Detox, and I would recommend it. The only real downside to a lot of diets like that is you have to buy a lot of expensive ingredients and use very little of it for the recipe. The sugar detox does try and use leftovers well, which I appreciate. It’s hard to make such drastic changes when you live in a sugar world. I am finding the Fitbit and counting calories is working for me at the moment. I am sorry to hear about your husband. Hopefully he will find it in himself to make the changes he needs to make. I will be thinking about you.

        1. Hi Karen,

          The peanut butter is just under the oats, 3/4 cup. Most of the time, I forget to include an ingredient to the recipe. 😉

          Thank you so much for your comment!

  1. Hi Crystal,

    Glad the counting calories and the fitbit are working for you. Thanks for thinking of me! I haven’t had a chance to try the recipe yet. I haven’t been home much. I went to Cleveland Clinic to something called After Care all day Friday. It is a free program for people that have graduated the pain management program there. I was there for 5 weeks in 2006. It seems a lot like boot camp when you are in it, as the exercise you to the point of exhaustion. I mentioned it Friday that during the sit down classes I literally fell asleep and one teacher took offence and slapped me several times to wake me up and told me she did so and all I knew was she was standing in front of my chair, I had no idea she had slapped me. That is exhausted! I.don’t think Dan will ever change. We went on a diet together in that we were just avoiding candy when we were very young. He told me he hadn’t had any! I found some in is car under his car seat! When I told his mom he had lied to me, she turned to him and told him to hide it better. I could barely believe what I was hearing! That was the only bad advice she gave him as far as I know. As I grew to know her over the years, she actually was the nicest person I know. She did the church linens until she was around 80. She got the stains out, ironed the robes for 2 priests, all the table clothes, etc. God Bless her she had 11 children and raised 1 grandchild as well. And she stayed sane! I had 1 and said I would rather work, and made sure I stopped at 1! God Bless teachers and Good bus drivers, as well as good parents that don’t harm their kids. My parents should never have been parents, maybe that’s another reason I kept it simple with 1 along with daily migraines since childhood. How are you doing?
