Cook’s Tips:

Instant or quick oats work best in this recipe. If old-fashioned oats are used, bites will need longer to firm up in the freezer.

One bite is a snack and three bites make a great mini meal on the run!

You can make these ahead and freeze! Leave them out at room temperature for 1–2 hours to thaw.
