Ingredients For These Keto Oreo Cookies

Even if it seems like a lot of work, you will love how easy it is to make these keto oreo sandwiches. However, they require a few simple ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen. Here is everything you will need: 

For the Low Carb Oreo Cookies

  • Almond Flour – this is one of my favorite low-carb flour substitutes. Choose a super fine blanched almond flour for the best texture. Almond meal is not the best option for this recipe.
  • Butter – make sure it’s unsalted softened butter. You can also use coconut oil instead of butter.
  • Sweetener – you can use any sugar-free sweetener you prefer that’s great for baking, such as monk fruit or erythritol.
  • Eggs – use room temperature eggs to help everything bind together.
  • Cacao Powder – use the best quality cocoa powder that you can find. Regular Oreos are made with dark dutch processed cocoa, which gives them their signature color. 
  • Vanilla Extract – no keto dessert without vanilla, right? Use high-quality vanilla.
  • Xanthan Gum – acts like gluten and keeps the cookies from spreading too much while baking. 
  • Salt – to enhance all the flavors.

For The Filling

  • Cream cheese – use full-fat softened cream cheese.
  • Butter –  room temperature
  • Sweetener – use powdered sweetener to ensure good mixing.

How To Make Keto Oreo Cookies

Follow the next steps to enjoy the best soft and crisp keto oreo cookies that are extremely easy to make. Here is everything you have to do:

how to make keto oreo cookies recipe
  1. Make the cookies. Add the butter into a large mixing bowl and mix it with the sweetener, eggs, and vanilla extract, and mix until well combined.
  2. Add all the dry ingredients and stir until the dough is formed.
  3. Wrap the dough into a plastic foil and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  4. Roll the dough between two sheets of parchment paper until 1/4 inch thick. Cut the cookies using a 2″ round cookie cutter. Transfer them to the lined baking sheet.
  5. Bake the almond flour chocolate cookies in the preheated oven for 8-10 minutes.
  6. Make the vanilla cream cheese filling: In a large bowl, cream the cream cheese, butter, sweetener, and vanilla extract until smooth and creamy. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. 
  7. Assemble the low carb keto oreo cookies. Once the cookies are cooled, spread 1 tablespoon of the filling per cookie using a knife and place another cookie on top. Repeat with all of the cookies.

Tips & Variations 

  • Before rolling out the dough, ensure it is refrigerated for at least 30 minutes.
  • Don’t worry if the dough begins to stick to the counter as you roll it out. You might have to chill the dough for 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Ensure that your cookies are completely cool before frosting because the frosting may melt and turn into a watery filling.

Storing Ideas

  • Room Temperature – Store these keto oreo cookies in an airtight container on the counter at room temperature for up to 2 days.
  • Fridge – These cookies can be stored in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 7 days.
  • Freezer – You can also store these cookies in the freezer in a ziplock bag for up to 2 months.

Can I Make These Keto Oreo Cookies With Coconut Flour?

Since coconut flour and almond flour have different properties, you cannot replace them one with another because you will have to change the amount of the rest of the ingredients.
