A layer of creamy vanilla filling sandwiched between two soft-baked oatmeal cookies, reminiscent of the Little Debbie’s treats we all know and love. This is one vegan indulgence you absolutely must try!
So yes, these cookies do have a lot of vegan butter in them. However, the filling recipe does make quite a lot and you don’t have to use all of it to make the sandwiches. So that might save you about ¾ stick of butter calories. Or you can load up on the filling and just not care! The butter IS important in the cookie recipe. You want the cookies to spread a bit when baking because if you think about Little Debbie Oatmeal Crème Pies, they’re relatively flat. The greater-than-usual amount of fat in this recipe helps the cookies flatten out more when in the oven. All that butter does have a purpose!
