INSTRUCTIONS

  1. For the caramels, I chopped mine in half and used a large 2oz cookie scoop. If you’re using a smaller scoop, cut the caramels into quarters to make even smaller pieces. They’re also much easier to chop when they’ve had time to chill in the fridge. Set aside.
  2. Dump 3/4 cup of old fashioned oats into a food processor and pulse 5-6 times. You should be left with some finely ground bits with some larger chunks. See photo in post for reference.
  3. Whisk together the oats, flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Set aside.
