Quaker and The Kroger Co. Family of Stores have come together to donate $25K to Feeding America through its Tweet for a Cause initiative (@Quaker + #BetterTogether) which encourages families to spend quality time together and make things, Better Together. Quaker Oatmeal goes great with milk which provides a good source of protein. This yummy goodness is something I like to share with your loved ones.
Jakobi seriously loves these things, and I feel good giving them to him. I know the ingredients that went into them and I can also cut the sugar. We had a good time eating Whoopie Pies and crafting Thanksgiving turkeys! Craft time and snack time go together like oatmeal and milk too! They are better together!
Of course I had to check out the Quaker’s tasty recipes, and I was inspired to create Oatmeal Whoopie Pies! I used the packages right from the box of individual packets. I used milk in the cream to get a nutrient-rich start to your snack-time. You can get calcium from both as well as fiber and iron from the oatmeal and protein, potassium and vitamins D, A and B12 from milk!
