This homemade oreos recipe is delicious and decadent and definitely for special occasions.

Before I ate clean, Oreos were a foundation stone of my diet. I mean, who doesn’t love those things?? But being the chemical storms that they are, I did eventually, begrudgingly give them up. But…

Homemade Oreos Recipe

I recently found a pin on Pinterest for these amazing looking, homemade Oreo cookies. Something about that photo just really called out to my sweet tooth. But since I’ve recently given up grains and dairy, I had to get a little creative.

You see, there are few things that will stand in the way of a girl and her love for Oreos. And while these don’t have the exact flavor of an Oreo, they certainly come close enough to satisfy the craving.

I have to say that it’s a little hard to admit that I still crave Oreos after 3 years of not having them. I mean, how long can one craving possibly hang on??? But I suppose if I can’t give in to a 3 year craving just this once, then there is something significantly wrong with my eating plan. We all need a treat on occasion, and I’m happy to say that, at the very least, these are a much more nutritious (albeit higher in fat) choice to treat myself with.

And before anybody asks, yes, the nutrition data is accurate. That’s why I say they are for special occasions!

  • Bake at 350 F. for about 15-20 minutes, or until completely cooked through.
  • While the cookies bake, mix all the filling ingredients together in a food processor or using an immersion blender.
  • Allow the cookies to cool after baking and then create your sandwiches using the filling. 
  • NOTE: You can adjust the thickness of the filling by using more or less cocoa powder. Just keep in mind that as it sits, it will thicken more. It takes a few minutes for the cocoa powder to really absorb the liquid.

    I’m going to try making these as unfilled cookies with melted chocolate in place of cocoa (defatted chocolate) plus added fat in this case. The fats in chocolate are generally considered to be healthier than other alternatives. According to nutritiondata.self.com, It has far more monounsaturated fatty acids than either, and more omega-3s than coconut oil, which has none. It also has some phytosterols, which may help lower cholesterol.

  2. Jennifer Drummond says:

    Ohhh, these sound amazing!!!

  3. You got to be kidding me, this is a sinful dessert by name and you have made it clean, how awesome is that, a special chocolate treat that you can eat and not feel bad while eating it, this is a recipe for keeps, yep for keeps.

  4. I am pinning these so I can find them when I want them…. and I want them now!

  5. graciouspantry says:

    That’s the main reason I chose a chocolate flavor. I couldn’t come up with anything to do the vanilla flavor with. I’ll keep working on it though.

  6. Clarisse Miller says:

    I’m thinking the clean eating Nutella would be fantabulous in this recipe for the filling. Even though I haven’t made either recipe…what do you think?

    1. graciouspantry says:

      Definitely! I thought about that too but didn’t have the hazelnuts on hand. Yum!

  7. graciouspantry says:

    There is nothing marked “sugar free” on the market that is clean.

  8. graciouspantry says:

    You could try it, but this recipe is really formulated for the almond flour and especially for no gluten.

    I can’t wait to try these. I love oreos!! YUM

  11. Becky Rogis Milum says:

    These look awesome! I can’t wait to try them. I’m a little nervous about making the almond flour though.

    1. graciouspantry says:

      Oh, don’t be! If you have a food processor, you just dump the almonds in and blend until you have the right consistency. It’s not exactly like flour, but close enough to get the job done. Try finding almond flour at the store so you know what consistency it should have.

  12. Maria E. Delgado says:

    Yum! I want these!

  13. Christine Koenecke says:

    Wow, these look good!

  14. Kim Houston Kirkpatrick says:

    I use almond flour all the time. How much would 8 oz measure out to be in cups? Can’t wait to try these!

    1. graciouspantry says:

      I’m not sure. I didn’t measure them that way. I just purchased an 8 ounce package of nuts and went from there. Sorry! I’ll have to measure next time…

    I don’t think you could achieve something thick enough with that. At least not with a good texture. I’ll keep trying though. Thanks!

  17. What if you used the brownie topping for the filling?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Brownie topping?

  18. Ilhaam Jiwaji says:

    Hey guys if you use 3 cups store bought almond flour they came out to the right consistency if anyone wants to know! (I made a half recipe so actually used 1 1/2 cups and it was fine!)

    Also i substituted for honey and would probably add a bit more to the batter or more to the filling to make up for sweetness if you’d like because mine didn’t come out sweet as I would have liked (still delicious though)

    Thanks for the recipe!

  19. Can you make ahead? Storage??? Looks yummy!!!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Stacey – You can make the cookies ahead of time and freeze them. Then fill them when you are ready.

  20. Stephanie says:

    What can I use in place of almond flour? My daughter has a tree nut allergy.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Stephanie – Oat flour may work, but I haven’t tried it.

  21. oreo cookies! these are perfect! i love how you can make the naughty treats clean! thanks a lot xx

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Mikala – My pleasure! 🙂

  22. I keep seeing all these recipes using almond flour~~ but you ARE aware that COOKING almonds basically turns their healthy oils to a trans fat, unhealthy oil?? Everyone is so focused on eliminating grain that they are forgetting that nut oils are FRAGILE and should NOT be cooked! Gracious Pantry, if you have evidence that says otherwise, I would greatly appreciate you sending it along to me! Being a fitness professional and nutrition specialist, this has been eating at me BIG TIME! 🙂 Thank you!

  23. Can you use Honey for the filling as well rather than the maple syrup??

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Renee – Sure!

  24. It’s my friends birthday tomorrow and he is on a paleo diet. He said his number one craving has been oreos and I just wanted to make sure these are paleo friendly….I don’t know much about it so I don’t want to make something he can’t eat! (:

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Adriana – Yes, these are Paleo friendly. I hope he enjoys them!

  25. I have agave maple syrup will that work for these?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Ashley – It’s not clean, but it will probably work fine.

  26. agave syrup isn’t clean?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Ashley – No, it’s not.

  27. a little trick i learned looking at baking sites. to get a more uniform cookie, use a ice cream scoop, they come in small cookie scoop size, and flatten your cookie with a coffee mug or small glass with a flat bottom. you can also use the molds form kids play dough sets to imprint designs on your cookies.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Kamiko – Absolutely! But with this dough, it may be a bit too sticky to do that. Otherwise, yes. Works like a charm!

  28. Hi! I just made the cookies only but they are very chocolaty, a bit bitter. Would you recommend to use less cocoa powder or more honey? I don’t want to mess up the consistency and I only want the cookie not the filling. Thank you!!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Ninca – Ya, they have more of a dark chocolate flavor. You could back off of the cocoa powder a bit and add a little extra dry sweetener like coconut sugar to make up for it.

  29. Love your website! I use it frequently for great recipes! I made these cookies and they came out great. I also came up with a great filling: coconut butter! Just warm it up, add a bit of vanilla extract, maple syrup or stevia and a pinch of salt. That’s it! The filling is sooooo good and compliments the cookies perfectly. 😀

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Karla – Oh yum!!! Thanks for the feedback! I’ll have to try that myself next time! 😀
