Homemade Gluten Free Oreos vs. The Real Gluten Free Oreos

I am blessed that I had an aunt who traveled to the US in the midst of the Covid-19 and was able to bring back packs of Gluten Free Oreos for me to have. When I posted to my Instagram stories, I got like 100 messages asking where I got them.

Gluten Fee Double Stuff Oreos

Unfortunately, they aren’t available in Trinidad as yet and they aren’t sure when it wold hit our shelves. So for those who can’t get their hands on the real Gluten Free Oreos, this Homemade Gluten Free Oreo recipe makes a great alternative. 

However if you’re really into the whole oreo thing (like me), you can order them via Amazon, it just costs a lot to clear in Trinidad. If you’re one of those who would like to get them here’s the link.

Making Homemade Gluten Free Oreos

Making homemade gluten free Oreos is actually quite easy, as long as you have the right ingredients. The most important ingredient for getting your homemade sandwich cookies to look and taste like the real thing is Black Cocoa.

Black Cocoa

Black cocoa is cocoa powder that has been heavily Dutched. Dutch processed cocoa is  dark and rich, but heavily Dutched cocoa makes it very dark, almost black. For more information on cocoa and its processing check here.

The color and flavor of black cocoa is what gives Oreos its colour and flavor. Which is why to make these as close to the real thing as possible, black cocoa is key. However, if you can’t get your hands on black cocoa, dutch processed cocoa can work, but the flavor won’t be quite the same. 

Once you’ve got your ingredients lined up. It’s simply a matter of following the ingredients and you’re on your way to having Homemade Gluten Free Oreos. Hope you’ll enjoy the recipe! Love always,

Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour 30 minutes

A gluten free twist on the popular Oreo cookie, these are deliciously gluten free!

Ingredients

For the Cookies

  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup GF 1:1 Baking Blend
  • ½ cup Black Cocoa
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¾ teaspoon salt

For the Filling:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • ¼ cup butter, softened
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla

Instructions

    1. In a bowl sift together GF flour, black cocoa powder, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt, then set aside.
    2. In the bowl of a stand mixer or using a hand mixer, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
    3. Add the egg, and mix until fully combined.
    4. Next stir in the dry ingredients, and mix until well combined and a dough begins to form.
    5. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead gently until it comes together. Press into a square, wrap in cling and chill for at least one hour.
    6. Preheat oven to 350°F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
    7. Remove chilled dough, and place on a lightly floured sheet of parchment. Cover with another sheet of parchment and roll out to a ¼ inch thick.
    8. Using a small circle cookie cutter or a champagne flute cut out as many circles as possible. Place cut cookies on prepared baking sheet, gathering scraps re-rolling and cutting out cookies until there is no more dough left.
    9. Bake cookies for 15 minutes, then remove from oven and cool completely on cooling racks.
    10. While cookies are baking, make the filling by combining powdered sugar, butter and vanilla in a bowl and creaming together until smooth.
    11. To assemble cookies, spread a layer of filling on one of the cookies then sandwich it with another cookie, scrapping any excess filling that has seeped out the sides. Serve with milk and enjoy!

Notes

  • To make these dairy free, simply use your favourite dairy free butter in place of regualr butter.
  • Black Cocoa gives these cookies, that flavour associated with the traditional oreo cookies. If you don't have access to black cocoa, you can use dutch press cocoa, but it will have a different end flavour.
