Oreo Cookies (Paleo, Gluten-Free, Keto Option)
Homemade Oreo cookies, just like the store-bought ones except paleo friendly & refined sugar-free!
With Valentine's Day coming up, I thought it would be the perfect time to post this Oreo cookie recipe. You can even make these in little heart shapes for your honey! I love gifting baked goods, not only are they more affordable, but I find people really appreciate the extra effort. It's also the perfect gift for that person who has everything.
I'm pretty sure I have never had a real Oreo, so I don't think it's my place to say that they taste exactly the same as the real thing. However, I have tried a Newman-O (the gluten-free ones that are delicious but are full of sugar and additives), and these little guys taste just like them!
They tick the most important boxes: the crunchy, dark cookie and the creamy sandwich filling. If you're feeling adventurous, you can even swap out the coconut butter for your favorite nut butter.

½ cup + 6 tablespoons almond flour
¼ cup arrowroot powder
¼ cup raw cacao powder
4 tablespoons grass-fed butter or coconut oil
1 tablespoon coconut milk (full-fat)
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons sweetener
For the filling:
3 tablespoons coconut butter
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoon water
1 ½ tablespoons sweetener
- In a medium bowl, mix almond flour, arrowroot powder and raw cacao powder.
- In a food processor, mix butter, coconut milk, vanilla extract and sweetener.
- Add wet mixture to dry mixture, and refrigerate for 15 minutes.
- Roll the chilled dough into a large ball. Press to ⅛ inch thickness (you can use parchment paper to prevent stickiness)
- Cut dough into 2-inch circles using a cutter.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, transfer cookies to sheet and bake at 350°F for 9-11 minutes.
- Let cookies cool on baking sheet then transfer to a wire rack.
- Meanwhile mix all of the buttercream ingredients and when the cookies have cooled, drop about 1 teaspoon of the buttercream filling in the center of one cookie and top it with another cookie- like a sandwich!
