Oreos – Keto Recipe

Who doesn’t love separating the Oreo’s and dipping them in milk? It is something that warms your heart to feel like a child again as you sit at the kitchen table and enjoy cookies and milk. So try this helthy version instead of the scary trans-fats and high fructose corn syrup in real Oreo’s.

Ingredients

Cookies

  • 2 1/4 cups almond or hazelnut flour
  • 3 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 4 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
