The Best No Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by punkinqueen

I've been experimenting with several versions of this recipe and I think I've found the best variation. The others I've tried are either too juicy and you have to keep them cool to keep their shape, or they're just too crumbly and don't stay together well. This combination has (in MY opinion) the best consistency.

These were great: quick, easy, could find all ingredients in my kitchen, and chewy when ready to eat! I omitted the cup of sugar and instead added 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips along with the marshmallows to melt together. Near the end i added an additional cup of marshmallows with the oats and coconut, as well as 1/2 cup of pumpkin seeds, another pantry staple to kick up the nutritional value a notch.
