This soft and chewy oatmeal sandwich cookie recipe is like snuggling up to a bowl of oatmeal, the nuttiness of the oats, a hint of salt and oh my this creamy maple, brown sugar buttercream! No spoon required!

The frosting is divine! I took all of the ingredients that I love in my oatmeal and developed this luscious buttercream then sandwiched between two classic chewy oatmeal cookies. I love a hint of maple syrup, butter, brown sugar and a little bit of sea salt. You could also put in a little cinnamon. Anyway these shape up, these are much better than store bought Oatmeal Creme Pies.

I don’t know what it is about an oatmeal cookie, but they are one of my favorites! I love the hint of salt that brings out the sweetness in the nutty oats, like these, Browned Butter Salted Caramel Sugar Cookie Bars.

Better than Little Debbie’s Oatmeal Creme Pies

Start with quality ingredients! I love Bob’s Red Mill products, they have never disappointed me. And Redmond Real Salt, have you tried it? Fabulous, loaded with trace minerals.

How to Make Maple Brown Sugar Buttercream

Decadent, buttery, brown sugary buttercream filling with a hint of maple.

Start with your butter and brown sugar and mix well, on medium-high for 2-3 minutes until light and fluffy, turn off the mixer and allow to sit for 10-15 minutes for the brown sugar to “melt” into the butter, once it’s set a bit, add your powdered sugar.

Amazing chewy, oatmeal cookies with maple brown sugar buttercream sandwiched between. It's like eating a warm, chewy bowl of oatmeal with all the fixings!

Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 12 minutes
Total Time 42 minutes

Ingredients

Oatmeal Cookies

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar (I use natural cane sugar)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt (I use Redmond Real Salt)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)
  • 3 cups quick or old fashioned rolled oats (I use old fashioned, Bob's Red Mill)
  • Sprinkle of Flaky Sea Salt (optional)

Maple Brown Sugar Buttercream

  • 15 tablespoons butter (1 tablespoon shy of 2 cubes), softened
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-2 tablespoons half and half or whole milk
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • pinch of salt

Instructions

COOKIE INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. In a medium mixing bowl mix together flour, salt, baking soda and cinnamon (optional), set aside.
  2. Place softened butter in a mixer bowl and cream together with sugars until light and fluffy. About 2-3 minutes on medium-high, scraping down sides once or twice. Add eggs, one at a time and beat well after each addition, about 1 minute each. Add in vanilla, mix in.
  3. Scooping about 1/2 cup of flour mixture at a time, mix on low speed until all flour is combined. Scraping down sides once, then add oats and mix until incorporated.
  4. Using a medium sized scoop, scoop dough balls onto parchment lined baking sheets and refrigerate for 10-15 minutes prior to baking.
  5. Bake for 10-12 minutes until edges are golden, cool on pan for 2-3 minutes then transfer to cooling rack to cool completely before adding frosting, if desired, sprinkle a little flaky sea salt.

FOR THE BUTTERCREAM

  1. Place softened butter and brown sugar in the bowl of a mixer and beat on medium-high for 2-3 minutes, then let the mixture sit to "melt" into the butter for about 10-15 minutes. If still "gritty" beat again for another 1-2 minutes, then let sit for a couple more.
  2. Add powdered sugar and mix on low until combined. With mixer on low, add half and half, maple syrup, vanilla and salt, mix until combined, then increase speed to medium high for 3-5 minutes until light, fluffy and creamy. If too thick, add a teaspoon or two more of cream. If gritty in any way, keep beating on high occasionally scraping sides of bowl for up to 7-8 minutes, eventually it will break the sugar crystals down.
  3. Scoop a generous portion of buttercream onto the bottom of an oatmeal cookie, finding a similar sized cooked, place bottom side down on top of buttercream, pressing lightly to smush frosting to edges. Wrap each sandwich cookie in plastic wrap.
  4. Store cookies in airtight container or baggie for up to 3 days in refrigerator or up to 2 months (if you are lucky) in the freezer. Allow to come to room temperature for an hour before serving.
