I have so many ideas for desserts sometimes I don’t have the time for all of them! I found a great recipe that uses chocolate wafer cookies as the crust, but instead of buying some gluten-free Oreos, I decided that I should just make some of my own! Allergy-friendly Oreos have been on my list for quite a while now, but a comment from a Facebook pal reminded me that I need to whip up some of these. The filling isn’t a pristine white like real Oreos because of the brown coconut sugar, but they are just as yummy!
This recipe makes a small batch of cookies. The cookies themselves are not too sweet, so you can add more coconut sugar or more Stevia to the cookies, but the filling is quite sweet so the flavors balance quite well as is. I tweaked one of my older recipes for slice-and-bake sugar cookies for this recipe and used coconut sugar instead of honey. Coconut sugar has a very unique taste, so if you are one of those who doesn’t like coconut sugar, you can use raw cane sugar or another granulated sweetener for this recipe instead.
