½ cup all-purpose flour
½ cup whole wheat flour
½ cup rolled oats, pulverized to coarse flour in a food processor or blender
½ cup Dutch cocoa powder
½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
¾ cup Smart Balance® Original Buttery Spread
1 cup granulated sugar

1 tsp vanilla
1 ½ oz unsweetened chocolate, melted and cooled slightly
½ cup Smart Balance® Rich Roast Creamy Peanut Butter
1 ½ cups powdered sugar
3 tbsp Smart Balance® Fat Free Milk and Omega-3s
½ tsp vanilla
In a small bowl, combine both flours, pulverized oats, cocoa, baking powder and salt; set aside.
In a medium-mixing bowl, cream buttery spread and both sugars with an electric mixer.
Beat in vanilla and egg.
Blend in melted chocolate.
Gradually blend in the dry ingredients.
Using a 1-tbsp scoop, spoon dough two inches apart onto parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Bake at 325°F for 10 to 12 minutes.
Cool on parchment paper for at least 5 minutes.
For filling, cream together all ingredients in a mixing bowl until smooth. If needed, add a small amount of extra milk to reach the desired consistency. Transfer filling to a zip-top plastic bag or piping bag.
When completely cooled, place half the cookies bottom side up. Pipe filling onto the cookies, using about 2 teaspoons of filling per cookie.
Top with the remaining cookies, bottom side down, to create a sandwich.
