No refresh token or refresh handler callback is set

I am trying to send Email using Nodemailer and OAuth2. It was working on localhost but not on Heroku so, I added OAuth to Nodemailer createTransport. But now it is not working even on localhost.

My code is:

const oAuth2Client =new google.auth.OAuth2(process.env.CLIENT_ID,process.env.CLIENT_SECRET,process.env.REDIRECT_URI);

const sendMail =async(email,code)=>{
    {const accessToken = await oAuth2Client.getAccessToken();
    let transport = nodemailer.createTransport(smtTransport({
        service: "gmail",
        auth: {
            user: "[email protected]",
            pass: process.env.EMAIL_PASS,

    let mailOptions,link;

   link = "http://localhost:5000"+email+"/"+code.toString() ;
        from:'"Horizons" <[email protected]>',
        to : email,
        subject: "Please verify your Email",
        html : "<h1>Horizons</h1><br><h2>Hi,<br> Please click on the link to verify your email.</h2><br><a href="+link+">Click here to verify</a>",
    const result =await transport.sendMail(mailOptions);
    return result;

} catch(error){

I get the following error:

Error: No refresh token or refresh handler callback is set.
