Disclosure: I am a Blog Ambassador for Walkers Shortbread. I was provided free product to try and was not compensated for this post. All thoughts are my own.
If your household is anything like mine, you’re in the midst of back to school prepping! Summer flew by and all of a sudden there’s clothes shopping, supply shopping, even classroom wish lists! I have one entering high school, one beginning 8th grade, and one that began pre-kindergarten in the summertime. One thing I don’t worry about as much is what my kids will be eating. Each of them have their own tastes and what they prefer, and the older kids enjoy preparing their snacks and lunches.
As you know, I’m an ambassador for Walkers Shortbread. Every month I get a fun shipment that never fails to inspire me, and this month was no different. My most recent shipment was this wonderful collection of Walkers Minis of all their best cookies, just in time for back to school! This includes Walkers newest addition, the Mini Crunchy Oatmeal Cookie. The Mini Crunchy Oatmeal Cookie is made of all natural ingredients such as whole wheat flour, creamery butter and whole grain oats. These come in little resealable packages of 28 bite-size cookies, perfect to throw in the snack bag or lunch box and eat as much or as little as my kids want. The fact that all Walkers products contain all natural ingredients, and the list of what’s in each cookie is so short makes it nice not to worry that they’ll overindulge in a bunch of processed foods during school and at snack time.
These little cookies are a fun snack on their own, but we decided to take it a fun step further and create a cream sandwich filling to make little bite size cookie sandwiches! Since the cookies are all natural and quality ingredients I kept the cream filling the same way. These would be a fun after school snack, or you can even put them in little snack bags and toss them in their lunch boxes. If they aren’t eaten right away, I would recommend refrigerating them, or even throwing them in the freezer. RiRi likes the way the chocolate chip ones taste when they’ve been frozen, plus that way by the time they’re ready to snack on them they will have defrosted a bit by snacktime and will still be wonderful!

Pictured are the Crunchy Oatmeal and Chocolate Chip Shortbread Minis, but I did make a few with the Shortbread Rounds. Those were delicious as well!
