HEALTHY OREOS

One of my all time favourites, I'm so excited to share this recipe with you!

The classic Oreos were always a favourite indulgence of mine, so here is a healthy alternative I've created which will leave you feeling satisfied but won't upset your body! :)

These babies are free from gluten, dairy and refined sugars. 

Ingredients

For the chocolate cookie:

  • 1/4 cup coconut oil (melted)
  • 2 squares 85% dark chocolate (melted)
  • 1 organic egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla powder (or extract)
  • 1/4 cup raw cacao powder
  • 1 tbsp organic 100% maple syurp
  • pinch baking powder
  • 1 1/4 cup almond meal

For the filling:

  • 4 tbsp coconut oil (melted)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla powder (or extract)
  • 1 tbsp organic 100% maple syrup
  • 1 cup almond meal

Method

For the chocolate cookie:

Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees.

1. Combine melted chocolate, coconut oil, egg and maple syrup in a medium sized bowl.

2. In a separate bowl combine vanilla powder, cacao, baking powder and almond meal.

3. Combine all ingredients then put in freezer for 15-20 minutes.

4. Roll out cookie dough between 2 sheets of baking paper, using a cookie cutter cut dough and place on oven tray (if dough becomes too sticky place it back in the freezer for another 5-10 minutes).

5. Cook for 15-20 minutes (or until cooked all the way through), then take out of oven to cool.

For filling:

1. Combine vanilla powder, coconut oil, maple syrup and almond meal into a small bowl. If mixture appears to be a little too dry, add another teaspoon of coconut oil.

2. Spread filling over chocolate cookie, then put another one of top to create an Oreo.

Enjoy!
