These are delicious! I've never had luck with no bakes--they always come out too hard or too soft. These are also too soft and runny, but I used Jif Natural PB, and other reviewers mentioned that may make cookies softer?! In any case, the one big alteration I made was I only used 1 1/4 C sugar, plus the less-sweetened PB. They still have PLENTY of sweetness, so I really can't imagine using 3 C sugar and typical sweetened PB!! I also boiled the initial mix for 2 minutes instead of 1. After the longer cooking time, I could tell they were still too soft when I added the oats, so I ended up adding an extra cup of oats to make them firmer. That didn't help, so I added about 3/4C unsweetened coconut. That's why only 4 stars and they are still gooey. Next time, I'll put them in a brownie pan and toss them in the fridge like fudge. That would be an easier way of storing them anyway. At the moment, I have a kitchen table full of sticky gooey cookies, and with a toddler in the house, that is a recipe for disaster! I could see many great additions to these, such as chocolate chips, raisins, almond slivers, flax, sunflower seeds--really anything could go into these for a health-ish cookie!
