Classic No Bake Cookies

12 Aug

I love this recipe for no bake cookies, I have been making it for years now. I decided to make these today after a failed Pinterest recipe! I tried to make a healthy version of no bakes, called skinny monkey cookies. They were made of oats, cocoa, bananas, peanut butter, and applesauce. They were terrible!! I actually ended up throwing them away. I like to try healthier recipes, but sometimes the classic recipe is the best. I found this recipe in a cookbook from a bank.
