No-bake Chocolate Oat Cookies

No-bake recipes are my favourite kind of recipes. They’re so much quicker to make and a lot easier to master and get right. These no-bake chocolate oat cookies are a great example of that. You mix all the ingredients in a bowl, then shape into cookies and you’re done! You do have to wait for them to set in the fridge, but that’s the hardest part of the recipe. 

This is one of those recipes that you can make when you want need a quick chocolate fix, but you’re not in the mood for baking. They’re also perfect for those warm summer days when you don’t feel like turning the oven on. My flat already feels like an oven, so the last thing I want to do is to add another source of heat. 

They have a lovely chewy bite to them and they’re packed with great ingredients like oats, almond butter and cocoa butter. It would make a great alternative chocolate treat for kids and an easy way to get some extra fibre into their diets.
