Happy day after the 4th of July! I know, that’s almost as bad as saying “Happy Monday!”
Hopefully you’re enjoying the rest of this strange long weekend the 4th of July has produced this year. Unfortunately, the only day I had off from work was yesterday,the 4th, but I’m doing my best to keep that holiday spirit going through the weekend!
If you pay any attention to the news, you know that much of the eastern United States is having quite the battle with heat this week. Actually, here in upstate New York it hasn’t been that hot — high 80’s — but in Little Bitty Bakes land, that warrants switching over from baked to no-bake desserts… like these little s’mores oatmeal bites!
I’m pretty much obsessed with everything s’mores, especially in the summer. But you definitely don’t need to be around a campfire to enjoy the flavors of a s’mores treat! These little oat bites are the perfect snack that can be enjoyed any time of day. And for you summer road trippers out there, these would make the perfect car snack!
Enjoy — and happy extended 4th of July!
[print_this]S’mores Oatmeal Bites
These simple no-bake oatmeal bites pack the flavors of a s’mores treat in each bite. They make for the perfect on-the-go snack!
Makes about 20 bites
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: n/a
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
- 1/3 cup miniature chocolate chips
- 3/4 cup marshmallow fluff
In a small mixing bowl, stir the rolled oats and graham cracker crumbs and chocolate chips. Add the marshmallow fluff; mixed until combined (it will be very sticky — I sprayed a spoon with nonstick cooking spray to make the mixing easier).
Form the mixture into small balls, about 1 inch in diameter. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.[/print_this]
