When my children were small, one of my favorite memories of summer was to watch all the kids in the neighborhood play in our cul-de-sac. The days seemed endless and there was always an adventure to be found. All the parents in the neighborhood would take turns providing snacks for the whole crowd. It was wonderful that everyone chipped in and was also a great way for the kids always had the chance to try lots of new things. A particular favorite with the under eight crowd, turned out to be a particular famous box of oatmeal pies.
As we discovered our family food allergies and sensitivities, those oatmeal pies had to be eliminated from our home and out of my children’s diets.
My children really missed those treats and I was determined to come up with a recipe that they could safely enjoy with their friends. This recipe is delicious and brought those oatmeal pies right back into our house.
Everyone was very happy to see them again.
These oatmeal pies are a great way to get your children involved and excited to be in the kitchen. They can help you measure and mix or just spread the filling onto the cookies.
