Great idea! I will be checking back to see what other no oven snacks you have....it is just too hot here in the summer to turn it on.

This looks great. I'm not much of a cook, what do you mean when you say oatmeal? Is that more like quick cook oats or oat flour?

Jillbert said...

This sounds delicious! I'll be making them this afternoon!

Megan said...

Lucy Marie said...
