Introduction

Splitting them in half and dunking them in ice cold milk. Jeeeez I love Oreos 💗. A few weeks ago I came across a keto Oreo recipe on a massive keto website and I decided to try and make my own version. Now, as I mentioned, I fricken hate when a recipe requires really obscure ingredients like agar agar or in this case ‘black cocoa powder’. Um, in general, normal folk don’t have that lying around and I am not spending €15 on Amazon buying it when I don’t even know if I even really need it 😮. My solution is this, a couple of drops of black food colouring if you reeeeeealy need black Keto Oreos. Otherwise, regular cocoa works a treat with these!

Each of my ‘oreos’ is 1g of carbs and I can easily justify eating 8 of them. I mean by comparison, a regular Oreo has 9g of carbs in one cookie. So technically eating 8 Keto Oreo Cookies is still less than one regular Oreo 🤣

Give them a try!

Method

  1. Start off by creaming butter and sweetener in a mixer for about 5 minutes until really smooth and creamy.
  2. Next, in a separate bowl, combine all dry ingredients.
  3. Add the egg and vanilla to the butter mix and combine (add the food colouring drops at this point if using)
  4. Then slowly add in a small bit of the dry ingredients at a time until it is all combined.
  5. Form the dough into a disc and wrap in cling. Chill for minimum an hour but preferably longer as it will be easier to roll them out.
  6. Preheat oven to 180c or 350F.
  7. Next, roll out the dough between two sheets of parchment to avoid a sticky mess.
  8. Cut out the Oreos using a round cutter. You should have 48 rounds in total to make 24 cookies.
  9. Then, place on a baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes.
  10. Allow cool before attempting to fill with the cream. (sugar alcohols can take a bit to fully harden)
  11. Lastly, fill with the buttercream once cooled (mix the softened butter with the powdered sweetener and vanilla until creamy)

Try not to eat them all 😆
