Remove from heat and stir in quick oats and mix completely.

Karen’s Note: My Low Sodium / Healthier No Bake Cookies are best kept in a sealed container in the fridge and served cold with a nice glass of fat free or low fat cold milk, or a cup of hot coffee, hot tea or hot cocoa.
*If you find and use a Natural Peanut Butter that is “crunchy” – be sure to use 3/4 cup, instead of 1/2 cup. On this Healthier No Bake Cookie recipe, the more natural the peanut butter, with no sugar and sodium, the better.
