Raw Oreos

Eating at gatherings oftentimes means bringing your own food. It’s just the nature that goes with the GF beast. So for a St. Patrick’s Day feast at a friends, I brought my own shamrock inspired GF pizza and probably the healthiest dessert I’ve ever made. But they were delicious, and I don’t care what anyone says!

I bring you gluten free, paleo, sugar free, egg free, no bake Oreos! Here’s what you need –

For the cookie

  • 1 1/2 cups almond meal (I used Trader Joe’s)
  • 1/2 cup cocoa (King Arthur’s Dutch Processed)
  • 1/4 cup agave
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt

In a food processor, or in a large bowl, combine the almond meal, cocoa and salt together. Add the agave and vanilla and mix well until a ball forms.

For a no mess, easy clean up, line a cookie sheet with parchment or wax paper. Roll 1-inch balls, then gently flatten. You need sets of two so if you have any leftovers, eat it! Place the flattened balls on the cookie sheet and pop into the fridge while you make the filling.

 

For the fillings

  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 – 2 tbsp agave
  • 6 – 8 mint leaves (optional, but this was St. Patrick’s Day!)

In a food processor (yes you really need one now), combine the above ingredients until a butter / paste forms. Using a butter knife, spread about 1 tsp on each cookie, then press cookies together, frosting side in the middle.
