  • 1 tablespoon dark molasses
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 1-1/4 cups white whole wheat flour

  • CREME FILLING:

Instructions

  • Prepare the cookies: Preheat oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.

In a large bowl, combine oats, flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Add dry mixture to liquid mixture, beating on medium speed until a dough forms.
  • Roll dough into 1-in balls and place on prepared baking sheet. Bake cookies at 350F 9-10 minutes or until cookies are just starting to brown. (cookies will appear very soft) Cool cookies on baking sheet 10 minutes, before transferring to a wire cooling rack to cool completely.
  • Prepare the creme filling: Place 2 tablespoons water in a stand mixer, fitted with a whip attachment. Dissolve gelatin in water. Set aside. Whisk remaining water, honey, and salt together in a small saucepan. Stir over medium heat until liquid registers 245F degrees (do not go over 245F)
  • Slowly drizzle hot liquid into water/gelatin mixture. Beat mixture on high speed 5-6 minutes, or until mixture is smooth and creamy. Beat in vanilla.
