Only 5 cookies?? That’s it?!
You know what’s funny. Eating just 3 Oreo cookies will give you 14 grams of sugar. I mean 1 Twinkie has 16.5 grams of sugar! Sheesh no wonder they’re so addicting right?
Now that I’ve grown up and realized that I shouldn’t eat an entire box of Oreos by myself, I’ve been on a mission to make a tasty homemade version of Oreos.
I didn’t want the quick and easy cakey Oreos with the buttercream frosting either. Those are NOT Oreos!
After A LOT of trial and error I have come up with something pretty stinkin close to a real Oreo. Poor Cameron was really hoping this last batch was really the last batch. He gets sick of trying my recipes over and over, except the sourdough cinnamon rolls.
Not to mention the endless pile of dishes I make that he usually ends up cleaning for me. Thanks Cameron! What a good husband huh?
This version of the recipe is a gluten-free Oreo cookie recipe that’s made with coconut flour. Not only is coconut flour gluten-free but it is very high in fiber which is good for helping digestion. I like the very slight coconut flavor mixed in with the chocolate and filling.
If you’d like a slightly-less-healthy version (it uses wheat flour), but maybe a tad tastier, I posted another version of these cookies over on Healthy Holistic Living.
Okay, on to the recipe! I hope you enjoy! Let me know how it turns out and if you have any suggestions to make it better.
