Oatmeal Cream Pies

There is just something about oatmeal cookies.  Almost everyone loves them!  Myself included.  I know many people are fans of the oatmeal cream pies found in the snack section of your local grocery store.  Well I decided to try a vegan and gluten free version of those! 🙂  Mine are oatmeal cream pies with a maple cream.  They are delicious!

Oatmeal Cream Pies - My Whole Food Life P

I made mine a little different.  I added a maple cream because I just love maple syrup and they reminded me of the oatmeal cream pies I used to buy from Whole Foods.  They were in the bakery.  OMG so good!  However, I don’t think they were vegan or gluten free.  My recipe may not taste exactly like Little Debbie’s Oatmeal Cream Pies, but they are still delicious.  Oil free and refined sugar free!

Oatmeal Pies with Maple Cream

A healthier version of the store bought favorite!


    For the cookies

    For the filling


    1. Preheat oven to 350.
    2. Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl.
    3. Mix wet in another bowl.
    4. Add wet to dry and mix only until combined.
    5. Drop cookies on a lined baking sheet. I used a cookie scoop for mine.
    6. Once all the cookies are on the baking sheet, flatten them with your palm.
    7. Bake for 8-10 minutes. While they are baking, you can make the filling.
    8. Combine all the filling ingredients in a small blender or food processor. Blend until smooth.
    9. Once the cookies are done baking and have cooled completely, frost them and make sandwiches.


    Recipe Notes

    These should last several weeks in the fridge. The cream will harden a bit in the fridge, so feel free to heat the cookies a little before eating. Enjoy!

    1. These sound so yummy! I have a question though...if the unsweetened coconut used to make the coconut butter in the filling is manufactured in a facility that uses wheat, can these truly be classified as gluten free? The whole gluten free thing hasn't been much of a consideration for me before, but my grandson was just diagnosed with celiacs so trying to understand it better. Thanks!
      1. I never thought about that. Do you know for sure that the shredded coconut is processed in the same factory as wheat?
        1. It was the bobs red mill unsweetened shredded coconut on amazon that I saw that on if I remember correctly. It's a little overwhelming the whole gluten free thing. Especially when you just beginning to feel your way thru it!
          1. I bet it is! Maybe there is another brand of shredded coconut, or you can look for store bought coconut butter at the store?
      2. Bob's Red Mill has a different line of gluten-free products produced in a strictly separate facility. If it doesn't say gluten-free on the label than there is a chance of cross-contamination. Edward and Sons produces gluten free coconut flakes.
    2. Ooh, these look yum! I've never actually had an oatmeal creme pie, or seen one in a shop, for that matter! (I guess its more of a US thing?) They sound lovely, though, and since I've never had one, I won't be complaining if they don't taste exactly like the store-bought:p
      1. Thank you Shonalika! You are not missing out on the store bought and I am sure it's just an American thing. Very unhealthy. I hope you enjoy my recipe!
          1. I have never used ghee, so I am not sure what it looks like. Isn't it a liquid? If it's a solid like butter, it could work.
    3. These looked so good that I immediately had to try them! Except, instead of the maple butter I made Nutella and also a blueberry jam to sandwich between the cookies. My cookies looked wonderful but they were quite dry -- is that just because there is no fat content in the recipe? Any suggestions?
      1. Really? I am sorry yours were dry. :( Do you think you cooked them too long, or maybe your oven is hotter than mine?
    4. OMG....I can't wait to try these!! OCPs used to be my favorite guilty pleasure. I have really curbed my sweet tooth from all the refined sugar I used to eat so I haven't even thought of these in quite a while but to know there is a healthier version is so exciting. I haven't had the store bought in so long I'm sure my taste buds will think these are even better. If your nutter-butters fooled all my friends I know these are going to be fantastic!! Thanks for all you do for those of us on this whole food journey...
    5. i wonder if you have ever tried native cafe's vegan oatmeal cream pies? i was personally amazed by the flavor and texture of them. can you compare the texture of the pies to anything i might recognize?
    6. I am considering making this as one cake. Do you think the batter would be enough for a 4" or 6" cake (both the top and bottom halfs)?
