Oat-reos! (Healthy Oreos)

Oat-reos (Healthy Oat Oreos) are hearty chocolate cookies. Take that, Nabisco.

Last post, I praised pies. Let’s switch to cookie mode: Crunchy, brownie-like biscuits stuffed with sweet vegan cream. I highly recommend Orgain’s cookies ‘n’ cream flavor of protein powder, as its Oreo taste is UNCANNY!

I’d prefer to eat a whole plate of crunchy AND creamy sandwich cookies. Provided they’re sugar-free, fat-free, and artificial-everything-free. And NO THEY DO NOT TASTE LIKE CARDBOARD!

You can stamp them with the traditional Oreo logo, but I like the rustic look;)

The entire batch is only 260 calories! They are a little smaller than regular Oreos, but you can remedy that by flattening them a bit. I do NOT encourage binge-eating, and I acknowledge that eating too much erythritol too often can hurt one’s tummy, but sometimes it’s fun to enjoy unlimited amounts of nostalgia. Especially when those foods are whole-grain, minimally processed, and high in vitamins!

OAT-REOS (Healthy Oat Oreos)

Yields 12 sandwich cookies or 24 single wafers

WHAT YOU’RE GONNA NEED

  • 1/2 cup oat flour (40g)
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder (10g)
  • 2 tablespoons dark cocoa powder* (10g)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sweetener of choice (48g)
  • 1/16 teaspoon (aka A PINCH) of baking soda and salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons water or oat milk*

Filling:

  • 1/4 cup vegan yogurt (I love soyghurt)
  • 1/2 scoop cookies and cream protein powder OR powdered sugar substitute
  • Optional: Peanut butter for a Parent Trap copycat!

WHAT YOU’RE GONNA DO


  1. Using a fork, combine the oat flour, cocoa powders, sweetener, baking soda, and salt. Make a little dust storm in your bowl!
  2. Stir in vanilla extract, followed by water. Add the water 1 tablespoon as a time because humidity varies and can affect the moistness of your dough.
  3. The oat-reo mixture should not be moist. Roll it out between 2 pieces of parchment paper, then cut out circles. No cookie cutter needed! Got a mini wine glass? Use that.
  4. Bake for 15 minutes at 350F. Let them cool completely to crisp up.
  5. While you’re salivating over the cookies and distracting yourself from hunger, mix the filling. In a small bowl, stir the yogurt and protein powder, plus optional peanut butter. Destroy the clumps.
  6. Slather one cookie with cream, then sandwich it!
A little behind-the-scenes! I do not have a circular cookie cutter. Mini martini works great!

A realistic serving size is not 1 cookie, of course. Try 5, right? You’re only looking at 100 calories and 6 grams of both fiber and protein.
