Soft, chewy and filling, these cinnamon raisin baked oatmeal whoopie pies are full of flavor and make for a deliciously satisfying breakfast.
I am a Good Cook Kitchen Expert and was given these products for review. Regardless, all opinions are my own!
With the temperature dropping daily, a warm breakfast is just the thing to get the day off to a great start! And while you can always make eggs, pancakes and oatmeal, why not make something a bit different? Like these Cinnamon Raisin Baked Oatmeal Whoopie Pies!
Many of you know I am a Good Cook blogger, and my most recent challenge was to choose from a group of common baking items, and find a not-so-typical use. For those of you who don’t know, Sweet Creations is Good Cook’s baking and decorating line, and there were so many awesome items from which to choose, it was hard to pick just one group!
After much deliberation, I chose a group of items that came with a Whoopie Pie Pan, a Round Cake Pan and a pack of Cupcake Papers. And after just a few moments of contemplation, I knew exactly what I wanted to make using the Whoopie Pie Pan – Cinnamon Raisin Baked Oatmeal Whoopie Pies!
Since Baked Oatmeal is usually made in a single loaf pan or something similar, then cut into bars, I couldn’t wait to see how well it would turn out using the Whoopie Pie pan. If you are not familiar with this type pan, it is similar to a muffin pan except the wells are a bit wider and much more shallow.
It turned out that the Whoopie Pie pan worked perfectly with my recipe! It made the perfect sized portions, and the best part is that it’s non-stick so the baked oatmeal pies came right out! Plus, it made enough for us to have a healthy, warm breakfast for several days!
Here’s my recipe for the Cinnamon Raisin Baked Oatmeal Whoopie Pies. If you don’t have a Whoopie Pie Pan, you can easily use another type pan, even a muffin pan – just fill the wells about 1/3 of the way full.
I do highly recommend getting a Good Cook Sweet Creations Whoopie Pie pan though, as there are so many great uses aside from the obvious! You can order it directly through the Good Cook site, or maybe find it at your local grocery or any store that carries Good Cook products.
