Homemade Oreos Recipe (With Chocolate Filling)

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.

  1. 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! 🙂

  2. 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!

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

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Renee – Sure!

  4. 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!

  5. 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.

  6. agave syrup isn’t clean?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Ashley – No, it’s not.

  7. 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!

  8. 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.

  9. 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. 😀

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