Cookie Dough Oreos • Paleo, grain-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free
Today I am super excited to share this recipe with you!
Not only am I excited because these cookies taste delicious, but also because I just created my first recipe instructional video. This video shows you each step for making these cookies.
I love editing and creating videos and I have wanted to make videos of my recipes for a long time now. This first video was more of an experiment and I would love to hear your thoughts and feedback. I do want to make instructional videos and show you exactly how I make my recipes, but I’d love to hear your feedback and suggestions first. So please take a moment and leave me your comments below.
Now let’s talk about these Cookie Dough Oreo Cookies… These are seriously delicious!
I am glad the recipe makes just a few cookies and I have a lot of friends and neighbors around or I would be in trouble for eating too many.
The Oreo cookies are crunchy and have that dark chocolate flavor of the traditional cookies. They don’t taste the same as the original store bought cookies, but I bet you will agree with me that these taste much better. They are not as sweet and definitely do not have that processed flavor.
Now the cookie dough as the filling… Sometimes a little creativity goes a long way… Did I mentioned that the cookie dough is raw and there is no need to bake it at all? And how about the fact that it is made with simply 5 nutrient rich ingredients?
I bet you guys are dying to try these. I wish I could invite each and every one of you to come to my home in Hawaii and sample them. Not to worry though, below is the recipe and step-by-step instructions for you to follow along and make them at home.

- ⅓ cup dark chocolate chips
- ⅓ cup coconut oil, melted
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 egg, room temperature
- 1 cup almond flour
- ⅓ cup raw cacao powder
- ¼ teaspoon baking soda
- ⅛ teaspoon salt
- 3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
- 1 tablespoon raw honey
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ¾ cup almond flour
- ¼ cup dark chocolate chips
- melt chocolate chips in a bowl over simmering water (double boiler)
- remove bowl from heat and whisk in the coconut oil, vanilla extract and egg
- in a separate bowl, mix together the almond flour, raw cacao powder, baking soda and salt
- mix wet and dry ingredients together gently using a rubber spatula, just until ingredients are combined
- cover dough and freeze for about 15 minutes
- using a rolling pin, roll chilled dough in between two sheets of parchment paper to ¼-inch thickness
- cut cookies with a round 2-inch cookie cutter. If the dough gets sticky or is hard to work with, return it to the freezer for another 10-15 minutes. Working with the dough cold is a lot easier, so return it to the freezer as necessary.
- bake cookies in a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper for 10-12 minutes at 350°F
- let cookies cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack
- in a large bowl, whisk together the coconut oil, honey and vanilla extract
- add the almond flour and chocolate chips and using your hands, gently mix ingredients together. Do not over mix the dough or it will get oily.
- roll cookie dough into small balls (I used about 2 teaspoons of cookie dough per cookie)
- press cookie dough in between two Oreo cookies gently so that the cookies do not break
Recipe makes about 13 Oreos. Store in an airtight container at room temperature or in the refrigerator.
