Soooooooo, Oreos are vegan, as you might already know, but they’re still filled with the most random of things and ingredients like palm oil. That makes me just feel like: “Meh, I’ll make my own instead”, which shouldn’t suprise you as I love having an excuse to bake.
I just got to inform you guys that these obviously don’t have the same level of sweetness or crispness like regular oreos. Personally I don’t mind because I find normal oreos to be sickening sweet and the slight chewyness of these oreos are just so so good.
I made the filling using a couple of tbsp coconut butter, some powdered sugar, a small splash of vanilla extract and a small pinch of salt. You can of course sub the sugar to sweetener of choice.
For Halloween I decorated them with icing, chroella colored icing, raspberry “juice” and chocolate, all for the perfect spoopyness. 😉
3 ingredient healthy homemade Oreos
[Vegan, whole food, refined sugar-, gluten-, grain-, oil-free, fruit sweetened, paleo]
Serving around 15-20 cookies Prep time 25 minutes
Baking time 10-15 minutes Total time 35-45 minutes
- 16 / 150g pitted dates
- 6 tbsp flour of choice (I used durra flour)
- 1,25 dl / 1/2 cup cocoa powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- Optionally a pinch of salt
- Optionally 1/2 tsp vanilla extract/essence
- Preheat the oven to 150ºC / 300ºF.
- Mix the dates as smooth as possible in a food processor. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix until combined.
- Now find a circular cookie cutter or glass around the size of a oreo. Divide the dough into 15 balls , 8g each. Using a rolling pin, between two pieces of parchment paper, roll the balls as thin as possible and use the cookie cutter/glass and cut out as many cookies as possible.
- Transfer the cookies to a cookie/baking tray lined with parchment paper. Bake for around 10-15 minutes, be careful to not burn them! Let cool and enjoy!
