I can’t believe how deliciously yummy these Healthy Chocolate Oreo Cookies turned out! I was craving a day of baking as we hadn’t had home-cooked cookies or treats in the fridge since I got back from Christmas, so I set to work on a bunch of ideas and these were by FAR the star of the show! The others were Vegan Raspberry breakfast cookies which were good, but not quite perfected, so I shall share them with you when they are.
What’s everyones thoughts on cooking/baking videos? Do you find them as easy to follow as print out recipes?
I diverge, but opinions would be great.
If you’re wondering what’s sandwiched in-between these rich and chocolatey cookies, you’d be right in saying it’s a tasty, smooth cashew cream made up of just 3 ingredients (plus a pinch of sea salt) – soaked cashews, honey and coconut yoghurt…simple, hey!
In fact, this whole recipe is super simple, and the result is a divine, guilt-free, sugar-free AND gluten-free box of treats. Or more accurately, some epic chocolate oreo cookies. Hurrah! The flour mixture is half almond meal and half coconut flour and with the addition of the chia seeds, you get this wonderful crunchy yet chewy texture for the cookies. There’s no question about their chocolaty richness so if you’re looking to hit the sweet spot, you’ve come to the right place.
I LOVE seeing your recreations, so please do send them in to me which ever social network you’re on! I’m @LeanLivingGirl through and through, and happy to repost yummy looking pictures! Although given the response to the cookies already, that might be all you see on my instagram for the next week!
Word of advice – if you’re wanting to make these in advance to serve up the next day at a party or dinner…(or just for yourself) leave the cashew cream until the day of serving. It tastes just as good after a day or two but when it’s been exposed to oxygen, the coconut yoghurt in the cream turns less fluffy and white, and well… we like fluffy and white!
I’ve added a note in about the rice malt syrup, make sure it’s gluten-free like this one as there are some brands which aren’t.
Thanks for the wonderful support on this magic little recipe and hope you enjoy them!
