*To grind oats, place in food processor with metal blade or blender. Cover; process or blend until smooth.
Instead of making the caramel sauce from scratch, use store-bought caramel topping instead.
For an extra-special presentation, use the caramel sauce to create a design on each guest's plate before serving.
