Ahh, Oreos. America’s favorite cookie. It’s kind of amazing how much this one, little dessert has become a part of our culture, isn’t it?
If you used to love Oreos and have been missing them since switching to a low carb way of eating, then you have to try these Keto Oreos! They’re surprisingly simple to make, and they will absolutely satisfy your craving for the traditional version.
Plus, the whole recipe comes together in about 35 minutes. You’ll roll out the dough for the cookies, cut them into circles, then bake until crisp. Meanwhile, beat the ingredients for the filling until fluffy. After that, assemble your cookie sandwiches and dig in!
Personally, I think the key to succeeding on a Keto diet is finding low-carb, sugar-free ways to enjoy old classics. That way, you won’t feel deprived, and you can have some fun being creative in the kitchen.
If two crispy, chocolate cookies held together by a sweet, fluffy filling sounds as good to you as it does to me, give this recipe a try! You can satisfy your nostalgia, your sweet tooth, and your chocolate cravings all at once.
Why Are Oreo Cookies So Dark?
Fun fact: traditional Oreos are actually made with black cocoa powder. That’s why they turn out with the classic black-and-white color combination.
Personally, I don’t think the color makes a big difference. I just use regular cocoa powder because it’s what I already have in my pantry. I’m all about convenience.
However, if you really want to recreate a Keto Oreo that looks as close as possible to the real thing, you totally can! All you have to do is swap out the cocoa powder for unsweetened black cocoa.
How Many Carbs Are In Oreos?
Traditional Oreos are made with wheat flour, sugar, canola oil, and high fructose corn syrup. So, it’s no surprise that a single cookie has 8 net carbs.
These low-carb Oreos, on the other hand, only have 3 net carbs per cookie sandwich. Plus, they don’t include ANY of the ingredients I listed above!
In fact, this recipe only calls for 9 ingredients. That covers the cookies AND the filling.
I just love that these cookies are a healthy yet decadent way to indulge your sweet tooth. It’s a treat you can feel good about eating!
What To Eat With Keto Oreos
Of course, there is no combination more classic than Oreos and milk. I would be remiss if I didn’t recommend that as soon as you make a batch, you pour yourself a glass of your favorite low-carb milk to enjoy with your treat.
So, with that out of the way, let’s look at some of the more creative ways to enjoy your cookie sandwiches!
One of my favorite dessert flavors is cookies and cream. That’s why I love mixing Keto Oreos into some low-carb vanilla ice cream. The combination is outrageously delicious.
You could also throw the vanilla ice cream and Oreos in a blender with some nut milk and ice. Blend it up for a good ole fashioned cookies and cream milkshake!
Want to impress a crowd? Chop up a batch of Keto Oreos and fold them into the filling of this Keto Chocolate Pie. If you have any extra, sprinkle them on top!
Oreos are such a versatile little cookie sandwich. Eat them as-is, pull them apart, dunk them in your favorite nut milk, stir them into other desserts… there is absolutely no end to the ways you can enjoy them!
How To Make Keto Oreos
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Add all the cookie ingredients to a mixing bowl.
Beat on high until well combined into a dough.
Place the dough between two pieces of parchment paper. Roll it out until the dough is about ¼-½ inch thick.
Use a round cookie cutter to cut out 16 circles from the dough. Place on the prepared baking sheet.
Bake the cookies for 12-15 minutes until cooked through and firm to the touch. Set aside and allow to cool to room temperature.
Add the filling ingredients to a mixing bowl. Blend until smooth and creamy.
Spread a layer of filling on one cookie, then place another cookie on top of the filling to form a sandwich.
Repeat until you have 8 cookie sandwiches.
