Oatmeal Whoopie Pies!

Whoopie Pies...afterall, this is Maine.   These have a wonderful chewy texture.  Let's just say I LOVE my Scottish's the best!   A couple years ago my husband asked for oatmeal-raisin cookies, so I made him some vegan Hermits.  Being me (and not liking raisins in food), I then decided to take a different route and make these.  Oatmeal cookies with cinnamon and just a hint of nutmeg, surrounding a creamy, not too sweet vanilla filling.   The cookies alone go well with afternoon tea.  No day is complete without afternoon tea...and biscuits. 

Chocolate Whoopie Pies!  

Too many Whoopie Pies are all about the filling.  The "cake" is treated as utilitarian, a mere vehicle for an obscene amount of overly sweet, greasy, hydrogenated filling that basically waterproofs the roof of your mouth.   Who needs two inches of filling, or a defibrilator after eating all that?  Some vegan recipes are (although very good) unnecessarily thanks!   My spin is a simplified and super moist version that works well with a creamy, but not too sweet filling.  


  1. Those look good...Have you ever added cocoa to them to make the chocolate whoopie pie?

  2. Thanks~ THAT is a great idea...I've never tried oatmeal-chocolate.
