Oh yes! I did it! It is cold and snowy here and the perfect kind of stay at home day to bake. So bake we did. We made these delicious Oatmeal Cream Pies because we could. And they are decadent and gooey, and I am sure very fattening. ~giggle~ But they put Little Debbie to shame.
Plus, last time I check Little Debbie didn’t make a gluten free dairy free Oatmeal Cream Pie, but this mama did! 🙂 As an added bonus they tasted awesome too! My son even looked at me and said, “Can I eat this? Are these gluten-free?” YEP! Every last gooey chewy tasty morsel!
While you can go to the grocery store and grab a box of these, you want to make a mess in your kitchen and try these at least once in your life. You won’t regret it! PROMISE!
