Cheezy Cauliflower Bites

Got a little crafty tonight and decided to marry my "oat" cheese with cauliflower florets for a crispy, cheezy, cauli treat!

First, preheated my oven to 375 degrees.

Then, I made a batch of my "oat" cheese.  I warmed it in a saucepan until it was just thick enough to stick to the cauliflower florets (so not as thick as I would normally).

Next, I dipped the cauliflower florets in the warm  "oat" cheese (a few pieces at a time), tapped each off on the side of the saucepan to remove any excess sauce, placed them on a parchment-lined baking sheet, then sprinkled them with whole wheat panko bread crumbs.

I baked these at 375 degrees for 30 minutes and about 10 more minutes on 400 degrees to make sure the outsides were crispy and the insides were tender.
