Thank you to Albertsons for sponsoring this post.
The holiday season is all about baking at my house. These Chocolate Pecan Oatmeal Carmelitas are always a huge hit, and with a little help from O Organics® products from Albertsons (who sponsored this post), we can throw a batch together to share with family and friends or to enjoy as a family.
The holiday season can get so hectic. We don’t always get everything done that we want to. One thing we always make sure we have time for, though, is making holiday treats to share with friends and family.
We love making treats together as a family and it’s always so much fun to share something homemade.
These Oatmeal Carmelitas are always a hit during the holiday season. We always make these when we are making neighbor treat plates during the holiday season. Without fail, when we hand these out, someone asks for the recipe.
I love that these are easy enough to make that my kids can all pitch in.
We made these holiday treats even better by using O Organics ingredients from Albertsons. Albertsons is our go-to during the holiday season and their O Organics line makes everything even better. I buy my O Organics products exclusively at my local Albertsons Store, but you can also find them at all of the Albertsons Companies family of stores, including Albertsons, Safeway, Jewel-Osco, Vons, Pavilions, Randalls, Tom Thumb, Shaw’s, Star Market, United Express, United and Carrs/Safeway. Visit now for more holiday inspiration!
My local store feels like a gathering place in my community. I always run into someone I know so it’s a fun chance to catch up with friends, while buying some ingredients for our favorite treats.
We always stock up on some of our favorites, especially O Organics 51% Cocoa Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips, because then we have the ingredients we need on-hand to do some holiday baking whenever we want to.

Oatmeal Carmelitas Instructions
