I love Oreo cookies and making a low carb version was a real challenge. But, that was fun! I’m glad I can finally share with you these delicious keto cookies.
Be warned! Once you make these low carb Oreos, you’ll make them 1000 more times. They are worth the work and possibly taste better than the real cookies – family approved!
Keto Oreo Cookies Ingredients
- Almond flour – choose a super fine ground almond flour like Anthony’s or Bob’s Red
- Dark cocoa powder – Oreos are actually black cookies, therefore the taste. To get the same color you can use Dutch-processed cocoa (extreme strong chocolate taste) cocoa and black cocoa.
- Granulated erythritol – the best sweetener for crispy and crunchy keto cookies!
- Xanthan gum – only a tiny bit to keep everything in place!
- baking soda
- espresso powder
- Softened butter – Let the butter soften at room temperature for at least 2 hours before using.
- vanilla extract
The secret of making delicious crispy cookies comes from the cocoa powder and the sweetener. Erythritol is the best sweetener because it makes cookies very crisp and crunchy. Allow cookies to rest for 2-3 hours before filling them with delicious vanilla cream.
To get that dark brown almost black keto oreo cookies you need to use dark chocolate cocoa powder. Using a classic cocoa powder will make light brown cookies that will still be incredibly tasty.
To make vanilla cream, it’s essential to use powdered sweetener. If you don’t have any, use your blender and process your favorite sweetener until it turns into a powder. Make sure the blender is completely dry before using.
For me, it’s easier to order a bag of powdered sweetener from Amazon. It lasts for months.
