    I want to make the Peanut butter and coconut crunchies bit it doesn’t tell how long to bake them. It just says to shape and refrigerate until set.Could you please clarify? Thanks!

    1. Deborah, These are no-bake but you do lightly toast the oats. Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
      On a parchment-lined baking sheet, add oats and toast for 15 minutes.
      Remove from oven and allow to cool.
