Where are all my thin mint fans at?! If that’s you, then I think you’ll love these! The chocolate and peppermint combo is one of my all time favorites, and since I could eat a million thin mints at a time, I decided I would make a healthier version.
These oat bites are great for snacking and are a great option for when your sweet tooth strikes! They’re made with simple ingredients and are free of refined sugar. You can enjoy a few at a time or even freeze them for later. I hope you enjoy these as much as I do!
