    1. I learned that recipe as a kid. I believe it’s 1/2 cup coconut and not take anything out. I’ve also used raisins, cranberries, dried cherries walnuts, almonds – what ever we are getting tired of but won’t want to waste. The are very versatile.

  1. My Mom used to make chocolate oatmeal no-bake cookies that I remember loving as a child. They had no peanut butter, and I remember some coconut in them. Mom is 92 now, and can’t remember making these cookies. I found your recipe on line, and wonder if I could successfully replace the peanut butter with shredded coconut.

  2. Thank you! I hadn’t made these in years and needed something that wouldn’t heat up the kitchen. They set up well and are delicious. They are VERY sweet. I ran a little short on the oats, so I added a little coconut. I like them best with “crunchy” peanut butter (with peanuts), but they are good with “creamy” peanut butter, too.

  3. I’ve made similar recipes and they were inferior by far to this recipe. My husband loves them. I would recommend! Thank you

  4. This is an old family recipe, minus the 2 tsp of vanilla extract, just used 1.. This same recipe can be used to make excellent fudge. Make sure it’s a form soft ball.

  5. Best way to ensure boiling long enough, drop a small bit into a bowl of cold water, if you can pick up between a your fingers to ensure you’ve formed a good soft ball. Add peanut butter vanilla and Oatmeal.

    It can be made into fudge without the oatmeal, as well. Add peanut butter, vanilla extract and pour slightly greased pan. Let stand in the fridge. If you boil properly, it should set.
