These were good! I added a handful of mini-marshmallows to the milk and butter mixture, used coconut cream pudding mix, and added 1 cup of raisins to turn them into no bake oatmeal raisin cookies.

I used pumpkin spice pudding (bought a bunch cheap after the holidays) and 1 cup of brown sugar--could've used even less sugar. I flattened these to about 1/4" and shaped into football shapes by hand for a superbowl party. As others have said, they were a little gooey and didn't get really firm--I debated using more than the 3 cups oats--probably will next time. Great taste and super easy. Will be even easier next time as I will just use my small Pampered Chef scoop to drop them on the paper.

These cookies are tasty, and I always use butterscotch pudding mix (gives a great caramel flavor). These are also a great gluten-free alternative. I LOVE sugar, but even I agree that these are a little too sweet.
