These taste just like caramel rolls, but without the fuss.

Just pulled these out of the oven and the smell was heaven! I realized after the first bite that something was off and realized I had used a whole stick of butter instead of just half. They were a bit salty but still moist and indulgent. (That's what happens when you are 9 months pregnant and get the urge for baked goods.) When I make these again I will put in the correct amount of butter and probably some cinnamon. Aside from my own mishap they were great, love the oats for the consistency.
