No-Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Frog Cookies

No-bake treats are the best thing for summer. They’re quick and easy so kids can make them on their own and they don’t heat up the house on warm days.

A recipe we recently rediscovered is for no-bake cookies that we called “frogs”. Made with cocoa, rolled oats, milk, butter and not much else, they’re the quickest way we know to make a cookie when you’re craving something sweet.

Chocolate oatmeal frog cookies take less than 10 minutes to make and they’re extra easy so kids can make them on their own.

And the bonus is that they’re gluten free, so if you have friends who avoid wheat this is an easy treat to share.

    Can I put these in a baking dish and make bars? My cookies always fall apart.

      Hello Angela,

      We have never tried this recipe using a baking dish. I guess that would work! -Marie at Crosby’s Kitchen

    These cookies bring me back to childhood. They are often called Spider Cookies in this area. They are a great idea for this time of year and easy to make. I love the idea of no baking. Going to try this version. :)
