Why are my No bake cookies dry and crumbly?
There are a few reasons why your no bake cookies might be dry and crumbly. The most likely reason is that you overcooked them. No bake cookies are really more of a confection or fudge, with oats stirred in. When it comes to candy, the longer it is cooked, the drier and harder it becomes. So if you overcook your no bake cookies, they will be dry and crumbly.
Another possible reason for dry and crumbly no bake cookies is that the ingredients were not properly combined. If the butter, sugar, and other liquid ingredients are not thoroughly combined before adding the dry ingredients (oats, cocoa powder, etc.), then the resulting mixture will be too dry and will result in crumbly cookies.
Finally, it’s possible that you simply used too much flour in the recipe. If there is too much flour relative to the other ingredients, then the cookies will be dry and crumbly. So if your no bake cookie dough seems unusually thick or stiff, that could be a sign that you need to add more liquid (butter, milk, etc.) to get a softer dough that will result in moist & chewy cookies.
