Anywho, the magazine labeled these as "Breakfast Bites," only they taste just like the Little Debbie Oatmeal Cream Pies to me - they just don't taste as fake and they are a thousand times better for you. Here is the recipe. Try it and let me know if you think they're better than Little Debbies:
1 C. White whole-wheat flour (or 3/4 whole wheat and 1/4 white)
1/2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. baking soda
1 t. pumpkin pie spice
1 t. cinnamon
1/4 t. salt
1/2 c. canola oil
1/2 c. packed brown sugar
1/4 c. granulated sugar
1 egg + 1 egg white
1 c. old fashioned oats
1/3 wheat germ or flax seed or combination of both
1+ c. finely shredded carrots (3 small-medium)
1/2 c. currants (like little raisins)
8 oz. (1 block) reduced fat cream cheese
2 T. Maple syrup
2 T. Powdered sugar
1. Preheat oven to 350°F and line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper
2. In a small bowl, stir together first 6 dry ingredients. Set aside.
4. Drop rounded dough (a heaping Tablespoon sized) on to the baking sheets, then slightly press down with your palm. Cook for 10-12 minutes until cookies begin to brown. Let stand on the cookie sheet for a minute then move to cooling rack.
5. For filling: cream together the cream cheese, maple syrup, and powdered sugar for 2 or so minutes with a mixer. Using a rubber spatula, place the filling into a plastic bag. Cut the corner and squeeze filling onto cookies, then make your sandwiches.
