how to store these no-bake chocolate oatmeal cookies

These are best refrigerated. Once set, the cookies can be kept in the fridge. These easy oatmeal cookies are also perfect for freezing! Just put them in a freezer Ziploc bag and they’ll be good for at least a couple of months.

what are the best oats to use for these oatmeal cookies

If you only have old fashioned oats, you can use them in a pinch, but the texture will be quite different. Quick-cooking/rolled oats are smaller, therefore they take on liquid more readily. They work well because they absorb cookie mixture and give structure to the cookies. If you use old-fashioned oats will result in a much chewier cookie.

    LOVE love these.
    Not only are they the perfect healthy go-to when I crave something sweet, my super picky teen Loves them too.
    I used to roll them in balls but now have a silicone brownie tray which makes assembly really easy and clean.
