When we were kids my mom never let us have Little Debbies. At the time, I thought that she was just punishing us, but as it turns out, she was right to not buy them for us. They are not very good for you, chemicals and such, but oh do they taste delicious. I used to have some serious jealousy issues over the kids at the lunch table that would pull a Little Debbie Oatmeal Cream Pie out of their lunchbox.

Now that I am a grown up, I realize that a homemade version of a treat is thousand times better than the one that comes from the package. And in this case, this oatmeal cream pie does not disappoint. A soft and chewy oatmeal cookie sandwiching a fluffy marshmallow filling. Who wouldn’t want to find this treat in their lunchbox?

On a side note, I am over at The Creative Mama today sharing a story that was hard for me to write. This week we are sharing our stories about our struggles with postpartum depression. I will be sharing two very different stories this week. If you or anyone you know had struggled with PPD, send them our way and let them know that they are not alone.
