Leftover Bits

What do you do with leftovers caramel bits from baking your new favorite cookie?

You make salted caramel apple oat bran…

For this bowl, I cooked 1/2 cup oat bran in one cup water with a pinch of salt until nice and thick.  I then stirred in a TBSP of brewer’s yeast – I’m still obsessed with brewer’s yeast and always add it to my oats.  I love the taste, but it also ups the nutritional profile.  After my oat bran was done cooking, I stirred in a chopped Granny Smith apple and topped my bowl off with a spoonful of caramel bits.  After a minute or two, the little bits got all melty.  Loved the sweet warm caramel paired with the crisp sour apple.
