These are so much more than a great reason to eat large quantities of homemade chocolate wafers. Oreos have been elusive to me for quite some time now. I don't think I've eaten any kind of Oreo in at least a year and a half, but probably more. Honestly, it's a miracle I've functioned this long. So it's time to turn that Oreo-deprived frown upside down! Rejoice my friends, because we can enjoy this delectable and nostalgic delite (pun intended) once again. I do have to say though, this recipe was not exactly easy to perfect. It took a long time in the making, and truth be told, I am rather proud of myself. Finding a copycat Oreo recipe that stands up to the original while being vegan, grain free, gluten free, soy free, sugar free, low calorie, low carb, and low fat is quite a trying task. Coming up with the right homemade chocolate wafers was hard enough, but concocting a truly healthy and delectable frosting turned out to be a righteous feat in and of itself. Just don't let my complaining scare you off, 'kay? Developing this recipe so I could share it with you (not to mention enjoy myself) was 1089% worth it. As long as you actually try these Oreos, of course. This is so important to me that I risked writing a fragmented sentence. Like I just did. And I just did another one. Oooh, I'm bad. I'm trying this new thing where I recognize the strengths and weaknesses in myself, so here I go. I recognize a strength of mine is my ability to eat Oreos, and I recognize a weakness of mine is to my inability to not eat Oreos. I recognize a strength of mine is my ability to thoroughly confuse you to the point of humor, and I recognize a weakness of mine is my ability to confuse you. Like I just did. (Another fragmented sentence? Gosh, I'm really living on the wild side today.) While I'm being wild, I'm going to go eat another Oreo. Or two. (Don't worry. School is starting soon and I'm sure I'll be back to using real sentences in no time.) Actually, this might take while... so I'm just going to leave you a recipe. So go ahead. Fire up your oven, grab your peanut flour, and pour your milk. After all, your milk is about to find a new favorite cookie. I'm sorry... cookies. You're not going to stop at one. Consider that your warning.
Homemade Oreos [Vegan, Gluten-Free]
- 12 homemade chocolate wafers
- 1/4 cup 0% Greek yogurt (Just use vegan yogurt for a vegan version.)
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
- sweetener to taste (I used 1 packet stevia.)
- Stir together Greek yogurt, vanilla extract, and sweetener and freeze for 20 minutes.
- Spread some (about 1/6th) of the filling on one of the homemade chocolate wafers and press another wafer on top (not too hard as to squish all the filling out) to form a sandwich.
- Repeat with the remaining cookies. Note: These must be stored in the fridge or freezer.
