No Bake Wookie Cookies

No Bake Wookie Cookies

The easiest recipe by far from the Star Wars birthday party I threw my daughter were these no-bake wookie cookies. I mean seriously- and perfect for these warm summer months too, because, well – no bake! And they are made of ingredients I always have –

And a note on the oats – if you use regular oats the cookies will be hard to chew and seriously not good, I made the mistake the first time I made these years ago, I couldn’t figure out why everyone liked these awful cookies so much – turns out need to use quick oats – it made all the difference!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 C butter
