Anyone else have fond memories of oatmeal cream pies? They seem to be a very nostalgic treat, and for good reason! What could be better than opening up your lunch bag to see this tasty dessert waiting for you?

Luckily, homemade oatmeal cream pies are easier and more delicious than you might realize!

And this recipe? It ticks all the boxes. 

But, honestly, the best part of this oatmeal cream pies recipe is that it is actually pretty healthy! It’s still definitely a dessert but it uses much healthier ingredients than traditional cookies, like almond butter, oats, and almond flour.

  • Reduce brain fog and support mental clarity when you need it most*

It’s an absolutely delicious way to take just about any baked good recipe to entirely new nourishing heights and really makes these healthy oatmeal cream pies taste special.

How To Make Chai Oatmeal Cream Pies

To make these oatmeal cream pies, start by creaming together the almond butter, coconut sugar, maple syrup, molasses, non-dairy milk, and vanilla extract. You’ll want to mix this for about a minute until it’s well combined and creamy.

Next, just add in the oats, almond flour, oat flour, Chai Bliss, baking powder, and sea salt into the bowl and stir until you get a thick cookie dough. 

Using a two tablespoon scoop, scoop cookie dough onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. These cookies won’t spread on their own, so wet your fingers a little and gently flatten each cookie into a nice round shape. 

Bake the cookies at 350°F for about 10-12 minutes. You want them to be just turning golden around the edges but not overcooked so they retain some of that delicious chewy texture. 

Remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool completely before adding the frosting. You can even make the cookies a day ahead of time, if desired. 

For this recipe, feel free to use whatever your favorite frosting is, whether that’s something homemade or store-bought. 

Recipe Notes And Substitutions

Feel free to substitute a different kind of nut or seed butter in this recipe. Almond butter has a nice neutral flavor, which is why it works well. But other options are fine, as well. 

You can use brown sugar in place of coconut sugar, if desired. 

Even though it’s a small amount, the molasses is pretty crucial to the flavor of the recipe. So don’t skip it!

The Chai Bliss provides a ton of delicious flavor to the cookie but if you don’t have any, give the spice blend below a try. Or simply use 2 teaspoons of cinnamon. 

Chai Spice Blend

  • 1 teaspoon ginger

  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon

  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg

  • ¼ teaspoon cloves

  • ¼ teaspoon allspice

The cookies can be made several days ahead and stored in an airtight container. Depending on the frosting you use, it will probably be best to store the finished cookies in the fridge in an airtight container. Leftovers should keep well for 3-4 days (if they manage to last that long!).
