Homemade Halloween Oreos

IMG_2524.JPGWho doesn’t like Oreos? Oreos are delicious! So you probably wouldn’t believe me if I told you I don’t like Oreos. The truth is, I used to LOVE Oreos but I don’t eat them anymore. Why? Because the store bought Oreos are full of artificial ingredients, and quite frankly a chemical mess. So, I have been on a quest to find a “healthier” version that I could prepare at home and…wa-lah! I found this one:

Ingredients

For the cookies:
1/4 cup oat flour
2 tbsp almond flour
1/4 cup cocoa
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tbsp maple syrup
1 tbsp coconut oil, melted
1 tbsp apple sauce

For the filling:
1 tbsp coconut butter
2 tbsp pumpkin puree
juice from half an orange
stevia to taste

Instructions:

1. In a small bowl mix the dry ingredients for the cookies. Add the rest of the ingredients and combine. A slightly sticky dough should be formed.

2. Roll the dough into a ball, wrap in plastic wrap, and let it chill in the fridge for at least 10 minutes.

3. Preheat the oven to 400F.

4. In between two pieces of parchment paper, roll out the dough evenly and quite thin. Use cookie cutters to cut out shapes. Continue to roll out the dough and cut shapes until as much of the dough is used as possible (if there’s a little extra just eat it).

5. Place cookies on a parchment paper lined baking tray and bake for 5 minutes.

6. Remove from oven and let cool.

7. While the cookies are cooling, prepare the filling by melting the coconut butter and mixing with the rest of the ingredients.

8. To assemble the oreos, spoon some of the filling onto a cookie, spread it out, and place another on top, repeat with the rest of the cookies.

9. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
