Substitution For Oats In No-Bake Cookies?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Just curious if anyone has a substitution for oats in no bake cookies (the kind with peanut butter, cocoa, sugar, butter and oatmeal.) I'm going to be going gluten-free in the next couple of weeks and (given how often I crave these) would like to know if anything else works.

Thanks. :D

Coco pebbles?

Nut flakes?

Quinoa flakes?

Or crisped rice cereal...I would do a mixture of several kinds. Quinoa and cereal. You could use gluten-free oats but pulse them in a blender a few seconds so they are not so chewy.

A Gluten Free Muesli base (without fruit or nuts)

or a mix of quinoa flakes, buckwheat flakes and millet flakes.

Best Regards,

Glad someone brought this up. I have not had these in a long time. I originally bought the gluten free oats for that reason. I made some other cookies first and, well we will just say I was not a happy camper. Are the flakes instant flakes sorta like potato flakes?

...Because I'm in the middle of abso-freaking-lutely nowhere during the school year, I didn't think of these suggestions (nor would I be able to find them) when I hit upon a "it works" solution for my no dairy, gluten, or soy self: peanuts. I either use crunchy peanut butter or pulse peanuts once in the food processor. Simple and effective.

As an aside, if you're just going gluten free, you might want to look into going diary and/or soy free as well, given that many people on the board have had to get rid of one or both until they heal more.

(I keep hoping I'm going to heal, and yet still getting hives. Not fair.)

I think Enviro Kidz Koala crisp cereal might work. It would probably make for crispier texture than oats.

I'd say nut flakes and rice cereal would lend a good texture when mixed. How's about you give us the recipe? :)

Here you go:

1 stick butter (melted)

2 cups sugar

1/2 cup milk

1 heaping TBSP cocoa

Heat to a rapid boil, reduce heat to medium. Boil until it reaches 230 F (+/- depending on your thermometer) Take off heat and quickly stir in

1/2 cup peanut butter

3 cups quick oats (trying for a sub for this)

Drop by TBSPs on wax paper or try our simplier approach and pour in a greased 9x9 pan and cut when partially cooled.

May sound weird, but what about coconut flakes?
