No Bake Cookies {Gluten-Free}

No Bake Cookies 016

We all love these cookies.  These are perfect for a hot day since no oven is involved and they are frozen.  They are also gluten-free, so Mom and Isaiah can enjoy them ; )

Stir in 3 cups rolled oats, 1/2 cup peanut butter, 1 tsp. vanilla, and a pinch of salt.  The mixture shouldn't be dry and crumbly.  If too dry add more milk and stir in.

Line a baking sheet with wax or parchment paper (I ended up using two baking sheets).

Using a spoon (or scoop like the one I'm using), scoop small balls of dough onto the lined baking sheet.  Place in the freezer until cool.  Store in freezer or refrigerator.  Makes 2 dozen.  Enjoy!
