Mini Slightly Iced Oatmeal Bites


The weather is cooling off and nothing makes a home feel warmer or smell yummier than fresh baked goods. What better way to kick off the baking season than with the flavors and aromas of fresh baked oatmeal cookies? To make things even cuter, use the dough and bake in a mini muffin tin (beware: they are addicting).
Mini Slightly Iced Oatmeal Bites

·         1 ½ cups Coach’s Oats®
·         1 ¼ cups white whole wheat flour
·         ½ tsp. baking soda
·         ¼ tsp. baking powder
·         ¼ tsp. salt
·         4 Tbsp. butter, melted
·         1 cup brown sugar
·         ½ cup granulated sugar
·         1 egg
·         ½ cup unsweetened applesauce
Preheat oven to 350°.

Whisk together oats, flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl. In a separate large bowl combine butter and sugars with a wooden spoon. Once mixed, add applesauce. Mix in dry ingredients.

Scoop batter into lightly greased mini muffin tins and bake 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown.
Allow minis to cool 5 minutes in the pan, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Once cooled, dip each bite top into the icing (recipe below).
