We love these No Bake Oatmeal Drop Cookies because they are quick and easy.  They also work great as part of Holiday Baking as Homeschool Curriculum. Of course in our family we make them several dozen at a time. The printable recipe below is for 2 dozen. You can adjust the serving size as needed.

 I’m sharing messy little boy pictures of our two youngest sons making Oatmeal Drop Cookies on our family blog.  If you’d like to see little guys eating butter and cocoa, you can take a peek. 😉

This certainly counted as the hands-on portion of our homeschool day.
