I used to go nuts for the original Little Debbie Oatmeal Creme Pies. I think I went through a box a week while I was breast feeding. It was out of control!
I couldn’t get enough. Then one day I looked at the ingredients and thought about coming up with a version without partially hydrogenated oils or preservatives in the cream.
I happen to like lots of spice so I went extra heavy on the cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. At least the cinnamon is good for blood sugar and the ginger is an excellent antioxidant. Ha! Anything to make this seem “healthy”!
For the filling, I used a buttercream with a surprise ingredient. See the recipe below…
Homemade Oatmeal Creme Pies
Optional Substitute: Instead of dry spices, I LOVE to use edible essential oils as often as possible. The flavor just doesn’t compare when it comes to using oils.
