Have you been enjoying any yummy Girl Scout Cookies lately? I know I have! Every year I buy a variety of cookies and they never seem to last very long at our house. I sometimes put them in the freezer so I won’t be tempted to grab one or two while I am in the kitchen, but sometimes they taste really good chilled and frozen, so that doesn’t really help me out at all. My favorite Girl Scout cookie is hands down, Samoas! I think I could eat half of the box myself. I am a little embarrassed to say that, but hey…it’s the truth. Actually, I am waiting for my Samoas to arrive, because I ordered late so to satisfy my craving for them, I baked a dish of some warm, Samoa inspired oatmeal!
This warm Samoa Baked Oatmeal is loaded with coconut, chocolate and of course caramel. While it doesn’t exactly taste like the actual Samoa cookie, it really has a great flavor, and let’s remember that this is still oatmeal folks 🙂 It’s flavor kind of reminds me of those fabulous magic cookie bars and really could even be served as a dessert with maybe some vanilla ice cream on top?! This recipe takes only minutes to prepare and can even be made ahead of time. If you or someone you love really enjoys Samoas, bake a pan of this tasty oatmeal for them sometime soon!
