No Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by stavenau

Oatmeal and chocolate, need I say more. Fast, simple recipe that kids love. I like to use a cookie scoop to put them on a pan. You can add peanut butter for an extra yummy flavor. Or add nuts, I never had just a preference.

My grandmother made these for me and I made them for my children and now making them for my grandchildren. We know them by the name " cow patties" . This recipe is a favorite with my family. Yes you are right you can add peanutbutter and/or nuts, these cookies are great.
