No Bake Oatmeal Cookies

No bake oatmeal cookies! I have been craving cookies like it’s no bodies business but haven’t had the time to create the kind of cookie I’ve been craving. Soft in the middle, crispy round the edges, laced with chocolate chips but of course. These no bake cookies are chewy, dense and super satisfying…and laced with chocolate chips as well as a little drizzle over the top for good measure.

I the no bake goodie queen…I just don’t like the anticipation of a baked good not turning out quite as intended! No bake sweet treats are so much easier to get right first time round!

These cookies are truly delicious…given a twist with the use of salted roast cashew nuts because if you don’t like salt and sweet together we can’t be friends. Or maybe we can, it just means once less person to share with. These cookies come together in mere minutes in your food processor. Going all out with a little melted chocolate drizzle just makes them look, taste and feel more complete…and of course chocolaty and in case you haven’t noticed from my recipes / Instastories and general demeanor, I’m a self confessed chocaholic. A trait which I embrace each and every single day.
