Watch your back sandwich cookie industry! We are making our own keto cookies, and ours are dipped in chocolate. Oh, and these cookies are keto-friendly and mint filled!
What’s Your Flavor?
Original? Double stuff? Maybe golden for those ‘nilla lovers??
Welp, we are skipping all of those and going right for the MINT!
Hi mint haters, Inspector Gorgeous here. Don’t click away! You can let this keto oreo be au naturel. Double stuffers? You can stay, too! Just stuff doubly with this (or un-minted) filling.
It’s your cookie, there are no rules!
Dip, Dip, Hooray
Since we are already healthy-hacking the most famous sandwich cookie of all today, why not just dip it in chocolate, too? I mean, it is (miscellaneous reason, not important) after all! We have certainly earned a chocolate-dipped cookie treat.
If you can’t find a reason, then you need a cookie worse than I thought.
Copycat Mint Oreos (Dipped in Chocolate!)
Proof that we can gluten-free and keto-fy ANYTHING.
Easy Does It
These cookies are wayyy more simple than they seem. Roll em, cut em, and bake/fill. BONUS: you can watch the how-to video for my Keto Thin Mints, which is strikingly similar to this process.
Then it’s all just cream filling and chocolate drizzlin’ from there.
To dip or to drizzle?
I don’t reccomend a FULLY coated keto oreo cookie and here’s why: It’s too hard to dunk in milk.
A completely coated cookie has more chocolate (pro) but is also impossibly to dunk due to the thick chocolate barrier (con). To remedy this, we drizzle or we half-dip our cookie to allow milk saturation AND sweet, sweet chocolate goodness!
I’ll take my Nobel Peace Prize in cookie currency, thanks.
Are you seeing this drizzle?
That’s the magic of Lily’s Milk Chocolate at work. There’s zero added sugar, it’s totally fair trade, and it comes in a ton of flavor variations, chips, etc.
Basically, it’s the versatility we need in a chocolate bar. I also added a little mint extract to make my cookies super fresh and minty.
How long will these cookies stay fresh? Great question! I wouldn’t know. They were gone in two days, but I would say they should last around 3-5 days in the fridge!
Yearning For More Keto Cookies? Dunk on These!
- 1 1/2 cup Almond Flour
- 1/2 cup Dutch Processed Cocoa Powder
- 1/2 cup Granulated Swerve, or sweetener of choice
- 1 tsp Baking Powder
- 1 tsp Xanthan Gum
- 6 tbsp unsalted Butter, softened
- 1 to 2 tbsp Cold Water, if needed
- 6 tbsp Unsalted Butter, melted and cooled
- 1 cup Powdered Erythritol (like Swerve Confectioners)
- 2 tsp Heavy Cream
- 1/4 tsp non-alcohol Mint Extract, up to 1/2 tsp
Make the Cookies
- Heat oven to 350° and line a large cookie sheet with parchment.
- Whisk together the 1 1/2 cup Almond Flour, 1/2 cup Cocoa Powder, 1 tsp Baking Powder, 1/2 cup sweetener, and 1 tsp Xanthan Gum.
- Cut in the soft butter and1 tbsp cold water together until a stiff dough forms. Use your hands to really work the dough, and if it's too stiff, add another tbsp water.
- Place the dough on a large piece of parchment and cover with plastic cling wrap. It doesn't stick as much as parchment! Roll into a thin round, about 1/4 in thick, and use a round 2-inch cookie cutter (or small glass!) to cut the dough and place cookies on the prepared baking sheet.
- Re-roll the scraps and repeat until you are out of dough. Bake the cookies for 8-12 minutes; let cool before filling.
Make The Filling
- Combine 6 tbsp melted butter, 1 cup powdered sweetener, and 1/4 tsp mint extract in a medium mixing bowl. Beat together until smooth, add the 2 tsp of heavy cream, and continue to beat until light and fluffy. Taste and adjust mint flavor to your preference.
- Spread or pipe filling onto half of the cooled cookies and top with another to make a sandwich.
- Melt the chocolate and coconut oil; stir in mint extract.
- Dip or drizzle in minty chocolate and arrange on a piece of wax paper or parchment. Let cool and serve!
