These homemade Mint Creme Keto Oreos are made with a sugar-free cream cheese filling stuffed in between two chocolate, gluten-free Oreo cookies.
How to Make Keto Oreo Cookies
First up is making the chocolate Keto cookies. In a medium bowl, you’ll combine all of your dry ingredients; almond flour, cacao powder, coconut flour, baking powder, xanthan gum, and salt.
In a separate bowl, you’ll mix half of your Keto friendly sweetener and two ounces of the butter until it is light and fluffy. Then add in the egg and vanilla extract. Mix it all up and finally add the bowl of dry ingredients and mix it all up one more time!
Now, ripe off two large pieces of wax paper, put one down on the counter, put the dough you just made on top of the wax paper and then the second piece of wax paper on top and flatten out the dough as much as possible with your hand and use a rolling pin to roll the dough until it is about 1/8 of an inch thick!
Remove the top piece of wax paper and cut out as many cookies as you can with a round cutter. I used the top of large spice jar, so get creative if you don’t have a small cookie cutter.
Repeat that process until you use up all the dough. It took me about six times of re-rolling the dough out to use it all up, which made about 48 cookies
Place your cut out Keto cookies onto a parchment-lined cookie sheet and bake for about twelve minutes.
While those cookies are in the oven, you can make the cream cheese filling by blending the cream cheese, remaining butter, peppermint extract and remaining Keto friendly sweetener
Once your Keto cookies are out of the oven and cooled, evenly divide the cream on top of half of the cookies (about 24 of the cookies) and gently press another cookie half on top!
Gluten Free Oreo Recipe
Most traditional flour options contain gluten, so in to keep this a gluten-free Oreo Recipe I use Bob’s Red Mill Almond Flour and Bob’s Red Mill Coconut Flour, which are both gluten-free flours, and an excellent choice for anyone on a low carb diet or looking to bake without grains.
Baking Powder also usually contains gluten, so if you want to be sure, your Keto Oreos are also gluten-free be sure to grab this gluten-free baking powder as well.
Since starting Keto, I love being able to treat myself with a Keto friendly dessert recipe every day. Yes, every day! I have a serious sweet tooth and proudly work a Keto dessert into my meal plan every evening.
Zero net carbs, zero calories, and is a zero glycemic sweetener! How excited are you that this actually exists? Lakanto is Keto friendly, Paleo-friendly, Vegan, NON-GMO, and All Natural.
If you prefer Truvia, swerve or stevia you can certainly use those instead, keep in mind you may need to adjust the amount you use, and the net carbs may be different.
How Many Net Carbs are in Oreo Keto Cookies?
These wouldn’t be Keto Oreos if they weren’t low carb cookies of course! Each Keto cookie is 1.8g Net carbs, 11.3 g Fat and 3.1g protein, so they could also be considered fat bombs too.
KETO PRO TIP: Plan for your sweet treats in the evening. If you have your sweet snack mod day, you won’t be able to stop….advising from experience ;)
