No Bake Oatmeal Cookie Balls | www.tasteandtellblog.com

Now that school is out for the summer, are you looking for a fun treat to make with your kids? These certainly fit the bill!

These aren’t your normal no-bake cookies. Instead, they are a chocolate oatmeal cookie ball that is rolled in powdered sugar – making them quite pretty in my opinion. And they are so easy that children wouldn’t have a hard time making them at all. And they are fun, since you get to get in and get your hands dirty! I liked these so much that I made them 3 times in a week for 3 different occasions!

    These would be so fun to make with my nieces.

  9. Fröken Vildäpple says:

    Ooh, these are a classic where I grew up. A very similar recipe is printed on the bag of oats. It uses cold coffee instead of peanut butter, gives the whole thing a wonderful mocha taste.
    Try rolling them in sprinkles if you don't mind the crunch. 🙂

  10. Grace says:

    this is a must-make. i love easy but SCRUMPTIOUS treats, and this is that. thank you.

  11. kat says:

    Oh, I bet these were a big hit

  12. Sophie says:

    These sound ideal for summer! It's been 100 degrees here, so next time the hubby asks for a chocolatey desert, I'll be making these for him :).

  13. Katrina says:

    Yum! I'm looking for things to make with the kids while it's TOO hot to bake! I will try these for sure!

  14. Liesl says:

    I have never seen the no bake cookie like this…great idea to cover it in powdered sugar!! YUM!

  15. Ingrid says:

    Those look good but sounds even better! Yay, on no cook treats! Yesterday I got into my car and it said it was 108 degrees!!! Thanks for sharing!

  16. Cara says:

    These sound great and easy to make! I make something similar, but without the oatmeal. Love that these have oatmeal too!

  17. TheKeilShpeel says:

    Thanks.. these are making my mouth water. 🙂 I'm going to make these tonight.

  18. TheKeilShpeel says:

    K.. I shouldn't have even tried these. They are SOOO good. I'm in trouble now.

  19. Katie says:

    These sound great and I agree with you they look pretty. Like the idea of the peanut butter in the mix.

  20. The Ordinary Vegetarian says:

    Thanks for this recipe. Made it, loved it, posted about it!

  21. Emily says:

    How do you store these?

  22. Deborah says:


    I'm sure they'd be good storing them in an airtight container – but to be honest, they didn't last that long for me!

  23. Kim says:

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! My mother used to make these when I was a little girl and I recently lost my recipe. I was brokenhearted til I found yours! These are without a doubt my favorite and I can eat them all without sharing! Perhaps my son can make his own batch! 🙂

  24. Jenny Kennedy Shick says:

    Those are so good! And so easy!

  25. Elaine says:

    My friends Mother used to make these when we were little, however, I do not remember the peanut butter in them but they are fabulous so who cares. I am so happy to have found your recipe

  26. nila says:

    Dont we have to toast the oats or cook the oats? the oats is used raw in this recipe and is it ok? i have been looking for some chocolate oats balls recipe like the quaker bites for a long time.Thanks!

  27. Celeste says:

    Can these be frozen? These would be a perfect toddler treat – afternoon snack!

  28. Brenda Fisch says:

    I added about 1/4 cup coconut but I loved them with or without the coconut! Thanks!

  29. Tonja says:

    My 12 yr old Grand daughter and I have made these twice in the last week! They are great! I will also try making them with cold coffee as Grace said, we like mocha too. For storage, we have used a ziplock in the fridge (don’t know how long they would last, they are gone in two days:)

  30. butter, peanut butter, oats, chocolate, and powdered sugar. All of my favorites. And the fact that I don’t have to break a sweat in my hot kitchen is a major plus. I love these Deborah 🙂

  31. I made these this weekend, and they are AWESOME!!!!! Everyone who tried them loved them!! Thanks for a great recipe, Deborah!

  32. Colleen says:

    I realize this recipe was posted a few years ago, but I had to comment because they are SO GOOD!! I doubled the recipe & used Bob’s Red Mill gluten-free oats (half old-fashioned rolled & half quick cook). I also subbed Sunbutter for the peanut butter due to my son’s allergies. They were a huge hit today at our family Easter, & I could not stop eating them. Easy too, we will definitely be making these again. Thanks!

  33. Eric says:

    me and my sweet tooth, ran across the recipe and added nutella with the peanut butter. very nice for a quick treat.

  34. Myranda says:

    Omy gosh these were AWESOME

  35. Kate says:

    Hey! These look GREAT!

    I was just wondering, do you know what I can substitute for the peanut butter? Someone said coffee to get a mocha effect but how much coffee? Any other ideas? Would love to try these, but I’m on a strict no-peanuts diet due to allergies.

  36. Nathalie says:

    Just made a practise batch (making with 126 children on Friday!) and swapped the peanut butter for golden syrup – Absolutely FABULOUS!!! Sooo easy and sooo tasty – THANK YOU!!

  37. tina says:

    just seen your oat choc no bake cookies what can I use in stade of coco I can have

  38. cheryl says:

    How long can u store them?

  39. reena fleur villanueva says:

    Hello. I also am allergic to peanut butter. Could I use cookie spread instead? I like that it’s no bake since the oven is not functioning. Thanks!

  40. Samantha says:

    these sound great!!!!!

  41. Kim says:

    Great recipe! I tweaked it a bit, I used all natural extra smooth peanut butter with raw honey, and added golden raisins, my mouth is watering just thinking about them!

  42. Kimm says:

    Has anyone tried using quick cook oats in this recipe instead of rolled oats?

  43. Marlynn Arcilla-Luartes says:

    This is so sumptuous that my family and friends will enjoy but I have one question to ask…are the oatmeal used in this recipe raw or cooked??
