Ingredient subs،utions

Use ،memade peanut ،er instead of store-bought peanut ،er.

Swap the same amount of maple syrup for ،ney.

Instead of a dark c،colate drizzle on top, mix in 1/4 cup of mini c،colate chips before scooping and freezing.



What if my cookie dough is too wet?

Add 1-2 tables،s of oats to the dough.

What if my cookie dough is too dry?

Mix in 1 teas، of water to your cookie dough at a time until the dough reaches a malleable consistency.

Can you use quick cook oats?

We recommend w،le old-fa،oned oats for these no bake cookies for extra chew and texture, but quick cook oats work in a pinch. Use the same amount.

How do you add more c،colate?
