I’ve been making no bake oatmeal cookies for as long as I can remember. It’s one of the first things I learned how to make as a kid growing up in Idaho. They were also a favorite of my Dad’s.
No Bake Cookies are such a nostalgic childhood favorite! This recipe has that classic chocolate peanut butter flavor combo and the perfect chewy, fudgy texture.
And I’m pretty sure they’re the easiest cookies on the planet to make! Usually made with white sugar and oatmeal, these cookies were far from low carb. But with a few simple tweaks, I think you’ll really enjoy them!
Foodtimeline.org says recipes for no bake cookies emerged around the time of the depression, using ingredients like butter, honey or sugar as glue to keep the ingredients together.
But in the 1950’s, the category exploded as products like margarine, Crisco, and their counterparts hit the market.
Also called preacher cookies, no-bakes are an old Southern recipe. So it is said, the name derives from how quickly these cookies come together, with no baking required: If the preacher were to come by the house for an unexpected visit, these treats could be on the table in a flash.
