Homemade Healthy Oreos

by Kelly M

These are so much more than a great reason to eat large quantities of homemade chocolate wafers.

Oreos have been elusive to me for quite some time now. I don’t think I’ve eaten any kind of Oreo in at least a year and a half, but probably more. Honestly, it’s a miracle I’ve functioned this long.

So it’s time to turn that Oreo-deprived frown upside down! Rejoice my friends, because we can enjoy this delectable and nostalgic delite (pun intended) once again.

I do have to say though, this recipe was not exactly easy to perfect. It took a long time in the making, and truth be told, I am rather proud of myself. Finding a copycat Oreo recipe that stands up to the original while being vegan, grain free, gluten free, soy free, sugar free, low calorie, low carb, and low fat is quite a trying task.

Coming up with the right homemade chocolate wafers was hard enough, but concocting a truly healthy and delectable frosting turned out to be a righteous feat in and of itself.

Just don’t let my complaining scare you off, ‘kay? Developing this recipe so I could share it with you (not to mention enjoy myself) was 1089% worth it. As long as you actually try these Oreos, of course. This is so important to me that I risked writing a fragmented sentence. Like I just did. And I just did another one. Oooh, I’m bad.

I’m trying this new thing where I recognize the strengths and weaknesses in myself, so here I go. I recognize a strength of mine is my ability to eat Oreos, and I recognize a weakness of mine is to my inability to not eat Oreos. I recognize a strength of mine is my ability to thoroughly confuse you to the point of humor, and I recognize a weakness of mine is my ability to confuse you. Like I just did. (Another fragmented sentence? Gosh, I’m really living on the wild side today.)

While I’m being wild, I’m going to go eat another Oreo. Or two. (Don’t worry. School is starting soon and I’m sure I’ll be back to using real sentences in no time.) Actually, this might take while… so I’m just going to leave you a recipe.

So go ahead. Fire up your oven, grab your peanut flour, and pour your milk. After all, your milk is about to find a new favorite cookie.

I’m sorry… cookies. You’re not going to stop at one. Consider that your warning.

 

Sorry, Nabisco. It looks like milk really does have a new favorite cookie.

Enjoy!

-Kelly M.

I love reading your blogs! It’s so entertaining and such a pleasure to read haha! Is peanut flour low calorie? Could you make your own?

Can I just say that I was SOOOO hoping you were going to make Oreos when you teased a follow-up to your wafer cookie recipe? I am so excited!! Really excited! Can’t contain myself excited!! (See, even English teachers can write fragments occassionally…lol)

I am worried though too…I hate yogurt. The smell of it turns my stomach. It completely makes me gag. Does the filling have any resemblance of a yogurt taste? I’m crossing my fingers, toes, and eyes in hopes it doesn’t!!!

Thanks for another entertaining post, Kelly!!

Why do you have to make my favorite things so delicious, heathy and easy and I’m still too lazy to make them? Can I just buy a package for you to send my way? ;)

Love the way you think! Consider it a present from me to you. ;)

It’s so funny that you mention this, because I was just thinking about setting up an online bakery where you could buy some of the baked goods I’ve posted along with ones that have a super secret recipe. Would you be interested in something like that?

I didn’t have all the ingredients for the wafers, but apparently google says the wafers on oreos are about 20 calories (for both sides), so I just scraped out the filling on 6 oreos and filled it with this for the same effect and same calories. So if anyone doesn’t have the ingredients or time to make the wafers, there’s an alternative! P.s. thanks for so many great recipes :)

I made these oreos and the cookie turned out great! But one thing I will say is the icing was not sweet like an oreos filling should be. I think it was the greek yogurt that gave it a sour taste even when I added more sweetener.
Maybe I should try using stevia, almond milk, and glucomannan (something I started using after me and my mom started Trim Healthy Mama; highly recommended book!) for the filling.
Hhmmm… Maybe that will work. I’ll try it. :)

I just saw a San Vicente Blvd. address… I live close to that address.

Do you go to the Brentwood farmers market ? It’s fantastic, but I’m sure you know that, you awesome cook, you!
