12 Quick & Easy No-Bake Cookies

If you’ve ever done a search online for no bake cookies, you’ll likely find most featuring the same (or nearly the same) chocolate & oatmeal version. They’re so good and that’s why they’re popular, but the results aren’t helpful when you’re looking for new ideas. Here’s a bunch of ways you can mix things up a bit!

Today’s Recipe Hit List features a dozen different flavor & ingredient ideas that I’ve handpicked from around the ‘net…you’ll find banana, peanut butter, cranberries, fruit & nut, almonds & dates, orange flavored, coconut and more (including the popular chocolate & oatmeal), some are even tweaked so they’re a little healthier too. Enjoy!
