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 finally had the time (and all of the ingredients) to bake up a batch of these goodies.
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”!
They turned out fantastic! Mmmm, they’re so dense, chewy, sweet, salty, and taste EVEN better than the stuff in the box.
For the filling, I used a buttercream with a surprise ingredient. See the recipe below…
