Gluten-Free No Bake Cookies - Chocolate, Peanut Butter, and Oats

“This is a compilation of a few different no bake cookie recipes I found and tweaked. This recipe made 40 tablespoon-size cookies. It would be easy to halve everything for fewer cookies. Almond milk can be substituted for milk to make this dairy-free, agave nectar for honey to make it vegan, and almond butter or sunflower seed butter for peanut butter.”
