The best part of my day was biting into one of them and forgetting that they're healthy! Definitely one of my favorite desserts I've ever created! The perfect bite, with homemade crispy, crunchy, healthy oreo cookies mixed into my very loved healthy cookie dough recipe! The process is a bit long, but the end result is so indulgent, and tastes like everyone's favorite comfort foods combined, oreo cookies, plus cookie dough! What could be better?
YIELD: 14 servings
TIME: 2 hrs. 45 mins.
Oreo Cookie Ingredients:
- 1/2 cup vegan butter (softened)
- 3/4 cup organic cane sugar
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 egg
- 2 cups almond flour
- 3/4 cups + 2 tbsp cacao powder
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
Cookie Dough Ingredients:
- 4 cups almond flour
- 8 tbsp maple syrup
- 4 tbsp olive oil
- 4 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
First we're going to make the oreo cookies (no frosting) to do so, add your softened vegan butter, and organic cane sugar to a large bowl. Using an electric hand mixer, cream together on low speed until combined. Beat in the vanilla extract, then the egg, once more until smooth.
In a separate bowl whisk together the almond flour, cacao powder, baking soda, and salt until no clumps remain. On low speed, slowly beat this dry mixture you have created into the wet ingredient bowl, using a spoon to scrape down the sides if necessary. You should have a thick cookie dough.
Once this chocolate cookie dough has been formed, mold it into a round disc using your hands, flatten slightly, and wrap in plastic wrap. Place in the fridge and let it chill out for at LEAST 2 hours before rolling it out.
Once the 2 hours are up, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper. Remove your oreo cookie dough from the fridge, unwrap, and transfer to a cutting board. Place a piece of parchment paper on top of it, and roll out the dough to roughly a 1/4 of an inch thickness using a rolling pin.
Ultimately these cookies are going to be crumbled up into crumbles, and small chunks when we form our cookie dough, so feel free to cut out fun shapes, or just use circular cookie cutters to cut out your oreo cookie dough. Place the cookies on prepared baking sheets and bake for roughly 7 minutes.
Once they're done baking, let them cool completely. Meanwhile to make your cookie dough, add all your ingredients to a medium-sized bowl and stir until thoroughly combined. Once the oreo cookies have cooled COMPLETELY, break them up into small crumbs/chunks and add to your cookie dough mixture. Stirring once more to incorporate well.
Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and use an ice cream scoop to scoop out your cookie dough into even small balls. Place on lined baking sheet and once all your cookie dough has been scooped out, pop in the freezer for AT LEAST 2 hours before enjoying!
Store in the freezer in an airtight container and enjoy!!
