Paleo Cookie Dough Oreos

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.

Cookie Dough Oreos • Paleo, grain-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free
Oreo Cookies:
  • 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
Cookie Dough:
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tablespoon raw honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup almond flour
  • ¼ cup dark chocolate chips
Oreo Cookies:
  1. melt chocolate chips in a bowl over simmering water (double boiler)
  2. remove bowl from heat and whisk in the coconut oil, vanilla extract and egg
  3. in a separate bowl, mix together the almond flour, raw cacao powder, baking soda and salt
  4. mix wet and dry ingredients together gently using a rubber spatula, just until ingredients are combined
  5. cover dough and freeze for about 15 minutes
  6. using a rolling pin, roll chilled dough in between two sheets of parchment paper to ¼-inch thickness
  7. 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.
  8. bake cookies in a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper for 10-12 minutes at 350°F
  9. let cookies cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack
Cookie Dough:
  1. in a large bowl, whisk together the coconut oil, honey and vanilla extract
  2. 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.
  3. roll cookie dough into small balls (I used about 2 teaspoons of cookie dough per cookie)
  4. 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.

    These look so yummy! I’d love to make them if a gluten-free AND nut-free flour would work……..Do you think it would?
    The video is great too! Thanks for sharing!

      Sue, you could try to use sunflower seed flour that has been ground very fine. This will for sure affect the taste both of the cookies and the cookie dough. Besides sunflower seed flour, I would have to write a completely new recipe using maybe coconut as main ingredient.

    How can something that looks so naughty be good for you?! (well, better than the alternative at least!)

      It’s all about the ingredients…

    Hi. I am making my first batch now… Some tips on the dough. I froze the dough for about 15 plus minutes. I still had a hard time cutting them out so I rolled the dough out and put in freezer for about 5 mins. HUGE help! Anyways, these smell amazing already can’t wait for the finished product 🙂

    OK, tasting the finished product… Delicious! I added a tbsp of coconut butter to the cookie dough center. These are perfection. Thank you! I have been craving Oreos all week and did not want to feel crappy after eating them.

    I did those last Friday with my friends and I must say I´ll no do it again 🙁 extremely difficult to cut. After baked too soft so it became just crumbs. It tasted good but we coudn´t finish one.

      Monica, the dough needs to be worked with cold. As it starts to warm up and difficult to handle, return it to the freezer for a few more minutes. Making sure the dough is cold before baking the cookies is also important. You can separate the dough into two or three balls and work with each one at the time. That way each is cold and easy to handle without having to pop them back into the freezer.

    Thank you Adriana.. Mabe I´ll try some day. I´m just learning how to bake with almonds. Thank you for answering and explain my complain. 🙂

    Delicious! They turned out really well, everyone had seconds… lucky they did or I would’ve finished them myself. I used maple syrup instead of honey in the cookie dough (it’s all I had on hand) and it turned out great.
    I made double the cookie dough to put in my dairy & sugar free ice cream tomorrow 😉

    Should I store the cookies in the fridge?
    Please reply soon 🙂

      Hi Debbie, yes store the cookies in an airtight container in the fridge.

    These were amazing! Thanks for the recipe! I used melted grass-fed butter instead of coconut oil, used almond flour and a little coconut flour, and added 1 tablespoon of honey. I baked them for 12 minutes but they could have used a little less time in the oven. Afterwards I just sprinkled a little bit of sea salt on top of each one. They don’t taste gluten free or paleo at all! Thanks again for this great recipe!

      I’m so happy you like the cookies Willow! Thank you for sharing your photo and feedback with me! It’s great to know the modifications you made turned out well also.
