Coconut Oatmeal Balls (no bake)

Karla Everett


I came up with these cookies years ago when I had to improvise to make my no bake cookies , I had no chocolate but lots of coconut and marshmallows and this is what I came up with and they turned out delicious. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have for all these years.

How to Make Coconut Oatmeal Balls (no bake)


  • 1In a large sauce pan add the butter , chips , and marshmallows .
  • 2Over med-high heat cook until all melted and mixed together.
  • 3Remove from the heat and add the coconut extract and the peanut butter if using and mix well .
  • 4Add the coconut , nuts and oatmeal. mix well until all the oatmeal is coated well.
  • 5Quickly form cookies into golf ball shape and size ( carefully because they will be hot ) and place on waxed paper and let cool. Sometimes I use 2 tablespoons to help form the balls into shape or I also like to flatten them out into a shape of a cookie.

    Note : Another fellow cook suggested to use an ice cream scoop instead of rolling them , I have never used one but I'm sure it would work great...Thanks Henrie
  • 6Note : you can roll them in extra coconut or powdered sugar after rolling into the ball shape and then let them cool.
