Before I begin mixing ingredients, I turn the oven on to 350, put half a stick of butter or 1/4 cup coconut oil in my cast iron skillet, and set in the oven to melt. I also start topping in a sauce pan on low heat using:
1 stick of butter
3 T. brown sugar
~Stir occasionally while the mixture melts.
While the oil is melting in the oven and the caramel sauce is cooking on the stove, I mix:
1 3/4 cup baking mix
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup coconut oil
Remove skillet from oven and pour butter/oil into the baking mix/milk. Stir well.
Coat hands with a little baking mix (this will only help a little bit...this is a gooey, sticky mess) and roll dough into little balls (a bit smaller than a golf ball). Drop the balls into a bowl of cinnamon-sugar....roll around to coat and place sugar coated dough balls into the skillet (which is already well greased from melting the butter!). Fill skillet. Top with caramel sauce. Bake for about 20 minutes at 350 degrees.
Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes. Carefully turn skill over on top of a large plate. YUMMY!
I'd show you a picture but the kids gobbled these up before I even had a chance to grab the camera. They even like rolling the balls despite the mess.
Tested and tasted in the kitchen of Laurie's Little Sprouts.
Approved by my little monkeys.
