No-Bake Caramel Oat Bites Recipe

As an avid camper and RVer, I am always looking for easy but delicious food. If I can make something and not use an oven that is a major plus since many smaller campers don’t have an oven. Plus even if you do have an oven, if yours is like mine it heats up the whole RV, which is not good in spring and summer. I was craving something with caramel, so after a few tries, I came up with this great no-bake caramel oat bites recipe. I love them, but even the whole family enjoyed them as there was none left of my first batch. They are the perfect quick grab and go treat. You can always mix it up and use something else in place of caramel but I would encourage you to try it with the caramel first.
