Vegan Oatmeal Cream Pie Recipe
When I found out my oldest daughter was going to have to live her life dairy-free and egg-free, one of the biggest concerns I had was not being able to share the different treats I enjoyed growing up.
I mean, who goes through life without cheese-puffs and caramel popcorn?!
So, I made it my mission to make things like this Vegan Oatmeal Cream Pie Recipe just for her.
And since adding another kiddo to the bunch that is even more allergic to milk than the other, making things like this Vegan Oatmeal Cream Pie Recipe have become second nature.
We pretty much come up with a way to make things dairy-free for every recipe ever.
And, turns out, I’m kinda good at it.
Like, take this Vegan Oatmeal Cream Pie Recipe, for example.
I made the irresistibly chewy oatmeal cookie to start with–because grandma made some awesome ones.
And then, one afternoon while I was enjoying one of those cookies, it just dawned on me that a little cream filling would make for the perfect Oatmeal Cream Pie.
Dude. I was so right!
I didn’t even have to use any hard-to-find or “weird” ingredients.
No flax seed or arrowroot powder (I don’t even know what I’d use that for).
Not in the cookies.
Not in the cream.
It’s clean-eating at it’s finest.
Except that I had to make a mess–but that’s negotiable.
If you’re a cleaner baker than I am, you’re doing better than me. LOL!
What I mean is, it’s just really basic ingredients put together in the most tasty way.
And I love it.
Because simple is fun and I sure like fun.
Also, because I often don’t have or don’t even understand why I’d use a non-standard ingredient.
I mean, seriously, what even is arrowroot?
And don’t get me started on xanthan gum–that stuff is way too sticky for me…LOL!
