i don’t believe for a second that one of these bad boys is only 6 g of fat, but whatever, i chose to believe it while i was eating them.
i didn’t know what oat flour was, so i ground up some oats in my food processor (my coffee grinder would’ve been even more effective but i didn’t think of that till after). i have no idea if that was the correct thing to do, but it seemed to work!!! these are soooo yumm. you have to make them. HAVE to.
