How To Make Vegan Gluten-Free Oreos
These cookies start like most good cookies — by beating collectively the “butter” (softened refined coconut oil) with cane sugar till fluffy and nicely mixed.
Subsequent, we add in cassava flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and sea salt to create the dough. After many checks, we discovered this mixture of refined coconut oil + cassava flour created the quintessential “snap” of a traditional Oreo, plus a impartial, chocolaty style.
Then it’s time to roll out the dough, minimize with a cookie cutter, and bake!
Whereas they’re baking, it’s on to the filling, which comes along with simply 2 substances: refined coconut oil for its impartial taste (no coconut style!) and powdered sugar to thicken to a spreadable consistency. Unfold onto a cookie, sandwich with one other, and it’s Oreo time!
Now, we now have some necessary life questions for you: Are you a cookie or a filling particular person? Do you separate your Oreo or eat it multi function piece? Tell us within the feedback! There are right solutions, however we received’t choose in case you get them fallacious 😉
We are able to’t wait so that you can strive these selfmade Oreos! They’re:
Crisp with an ideal snap
