I dunno about you, but I think I found the perfect little treat for brisk fall days, using some of the best foods fall has to offer. Like apples. And cinnamon. And oatmeal. And caramel. And and and, I dunno. It’s just amazing, you guys. What doesn’t sound amazing about Caramel Apple Oatmeal Bites? Nothing. Not a damn thing. Cause amazing.
I had a lot of fun making these because they are so unlike regular cookies. They are super sticky, which means utilizing a cookie scoop is pretty much necessary. Unless you like having the oats stuck to every inch of your hands. Whatever floats your boat, I guess, ha. I mean, I love to knead certain types of dough, but sticky just kind of gets me a little weird. Dunno why. It just does. Like when I grab some ice cubes but my hands are just slightly wet and the ice sticks to my hand? Ohmigod it’s like nails on a chalkboard for me. Can’t stand it. I freak out.
Hate touching ice.
Thankfully, touching these doesn’t involve ice. And I have the cookie scooper, soooooo all is well with the world. And this caramel apple oatmeal bites come together in just about 5 minutes, take only 15 to bake, and are ready to eat just minutes later. It’s like food on demand. But better. Cause it’s homemade.
That’s what I’m talkin’ bout, Willis.
