Quick food: No-bake cookies by Majnouna Quick food: No-bake cookies by Majnouna
When I first moved in here, we had a defective oven, and I had to sort out a way to make something for a gathering without being able to bake. These are rather sweet (I cut down sugar from the original recipe as much as I could!) but I think the sugar is what's holding them together in the absence of eggs. (Also, gluten-free!)

More recipes in my folder: Quick Food, Not Fast Food. Info on the book: Quick Food, Not Fast Food: the book! by Majnouna

THINK BEFORE YOU TYPE. Read the recipe and description in full and try to use your brain (+ google, wikipedia etc) before asking something dickish or lazy, or you'll be ignored.

Could you have a substitute for peanut butter? I'm anaphylactic but I'd really love to try this :<

ooh, these look like a great addition to my recipe list for days when we've got people coming round but it's just too hot to turn on the oven! (most of the others rely on having really plain shop-bought biscuits in the cupboard...)
I'm glad to see, also, that I'm not the only one who cuts down on sugar. I'm a fiend for chocolate but don't have much of a sweet tooth, so my mother and I always cut down the sugar in any recipe by about a third. =P

Can also be made in a galley(military) from self serve stuff collected over time...  

Instead of cocca going to have to be powdered hot chocolate, instead of plain rolled oats it's going to have to be something flavored(those premade oatmeal package thingies), peanut butter is sadly rare(eaten really fast) but it's doable.  Having so many flavored and sweetened things means that something like sugar doesn't need to be added(can't get in large amounts anyways).

Now butter is the hard part.  Going to have to be salad dressing oil at worst :( , Marerangin, or maybe cream cheese.  Cream cheese makes the most sense, which means that this in the breakfast you have to make these at.

 Vanilla is just impossible...  Going to have to bring your own, at least it lasts forever.

Since you're probably somewhere really hot and uncomfortable you're going to take the dough put it in a plastic bag.   Then fill a second plastic bag with ice, and put the dough bag in that. Or if you're in the Navy duct tape the bag to the side of a unit cooler :D

In the quest for something homemade I've also seen people attempt to use protein powder as a flour substitute for microwave brownies.  With mixed results.

This is an interesting insight into the limitations of a military context, but why not just make something else??
