    While peanut butter no-cake cookies are so simple, it is stupid, they can also easily be messed up. The two most common issues are being grainy because the sugar didn’t dissolve and that they didn’t set correctly.

    So here is how to prevent no-bake cookie disasters. Okay, maybe that is a little dramatic.

    The first mistake is boiling time, either too long or too little. Boil too little and the sugar doesn’t fully dissolve, boil too long and it loses too much moisture and burns. Don’t be afraid to see some bubbles, but time it for 1 minute (don’t guesstimate) and remove it from the heat immediately.

    The second mistake is not measuring properly. In order for the cookies to have the right consistency and hold together, you really do need to measure the ingredients out instead of winging it. Believe me, it is hard for me to do as well, but you’ll be happy when your chocolate no bake cookies are perfect!

    I guess what I’m saying is that the true secret to perfect no bake oatmeal cookies is patience and attention. A little bit of both and you’ll end up with the best Classic No Bake Cookies you’ve ever tasted.
