How to make keto Oreos
This recipe is very straight forward. We make the cookies, mix the icing, then assemble our cookie sandwiches!
- Add all of the cookie ingredients to a mixing bowl.
- Using an electric or stand mixer, blend on high until a thick dough has formed.
- Using your hands, form the cookie dough into 16 balls, making them all about the same size. It helps to wet your hands slightly so the dough won’t stick.
- Flatten each dough ball into the round shape of an Oreo, then place on a well greased baking sheet.
- Bake at 350°F for 8 minutes, or until cooked through. Then, remove from the oven and allow the cookies to cool to room temperature.
- Add all of the icing ingredients to a mixing bowl. Blend on high until smooth and creamy.
- Place a dollop of icing on the bottom of a cookie (the side that was flat against the baking sheet). Spread the icing out evenly, and then place another cookie on top of the icing to complete the cookie sandwich.
- Repeat with the remaining cookies and icing until you have made a total of 8 keto Oreo cookies.
Serve with your favorite nut milk, a glass of coconut milk, or other low carb milk and enjoy!
How to make the cookies darker
Traditional Oreos have a very distinct look to them. That’s because they use black cocoa powder in the cookie batter.
I use regular cocoa powder in my recipe because most people already have it in their pantry.
However, you could make darker low-carb Oreos that look more like the real thing. Simply use Hershey’s dark cocoa or an unsweetened black cocoa.
Keep in mind that black cocoa tastes slightly different. Due to how it’s made, it is less bitter but also has a milder chocolate flavor.
Feel free to experiment with different types of cocoa! It’s a great excuse to keep making homemade gluten free Oreo cookies.
Carbs in each cookie
Each keto oreo cookie will have 4 grams of total carbohydrates and 2 grams of fiber.
That means that each cookie sandwich is only 2 net carbs! And there is only 1 gram of sugar per serving.
Compare that to traditional Oreos, which have 10 net carbs and 6.5 grams of sugar per cookie sandwich. What a difference!
Now you can enjoy an Oreo (or two!) totally guilt free.
