<span>WARNING!! Do not used "regular" oats that are not "instant" oats, the cookies will never properly form. I made a double batch using the very high quality (Bob's Red Mill Old Fashioned Rolled Oats) and they never formed. </span><br /><br /><span>Once I made another batch with instant oats, they came out perfect! These are awesome cookies though, and definitely worth the small prep time to make... :) </span><br /><br /><span>Read more at: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/food-network-kitchens/peanut-butter-chocolate-no-bake-cookies-recipe.html?oc=linkback</span>
