Making cookies in the oven is not the hardest thing in the world, and actually, preparing the different masses seems relaxing to me. But turning on the oven is not always possible, either due to lack of time, due to very hot days or as it happens in Venezuela, where sometimes we do not have domestic gas, fortunately, there are recipes as old as these oatmeal cookies and chocolate without oven, which are perfect to fulfill the craving, very quick to make and you will have no excuse to prepare a rich and easy snack.

Turn off the heat and add the oat flakes, mix until well covered and let cool for five minutes, immediately, helping with an ice cream spoon, place portions of the mixture on the baking paper, and flatten slightly with the back of a spoon. Let cool for about an hour at room temperature, but if we are in a hurry, we can put them in the freezer for 20 minutes.
