These peanut butter Oreos are a whole-food based version of the classic, but just as tasty! They’re vegan, gluten and refined sugar-free, but you’d never guess it!
Have you seen the Parent Trap movie? I have that to thank for my Oreo peanut butter obsession. One of the girls in the movie was at summer camp and would straight up dunk the Oreo into peanut butter and after I saw that, my life was forever changed. Dramatic, but you guys it’s INSANE. So I knew I wanted to make a whole-food based version of the classic!
What do you need to make peanut butter Oreos?
- almond flour: This makes the cookie light while crunchy, mixed with the tapioca. I haven’t tested subs.
- tapioca flour: This adds the Oreo crunch factor to the recipe. You could try subbing arrowroot flour.
- black cacao powder: Regular cacao powder will work but black cocoa powder gives it the authentic oreo flavor/color! You can find it on amazon.
- maple syrup: You can sub any sticky sweetener you like.
- coconut oil: You can sub any oil of choice or butter/ghee.
- peanut butter: If you can’t eat peanut butter, feel free to sub any nut or seed butter! Sunflower butter is a great nut-free alternative.
- powdered sugar : I use a monk fruit powdered sugar to keep these refined sugar-free, but you can always use regular powdered sugar.
How to make the cookies:
- Mix together the dough and drop by spoonfuls. Bake and let cool.
- Mix together the filling ingredients.
- Add the filling to a cookie and sandwich another on top.
