Gluten-Free Oreo Cookies

Mmm…Oreo cookies that are alright for a gluten-intolerant tummy. :) OK, maybe not the waistline of a gluten-intolerant person, but this sure will satisfy any cravings you have for Oreo cookies! :)

These cookies have some crunch to them (the thinner you can slice them when making them, the crunchier they’ll be), and the cookie & frosting both taste exactly like the regular Oreo cookies you buy in the store. AND, you can make all your cookie “Double Stuff” if you want! Yeah! :) Next time (yes, this is a recipe I’ll be making again!), I may try to flavour the icing with coffee…mmm…a mocha Oreo cookie… Delightful! :)

You could also roll the dough out on parchment paper, bake in a full sheet, and, once cooled, make crumbs in your food processor. These crumbs would be perfect for making gluten-free crusts for cheesecakes or pies!

    You’re welcome! :) I don’t think you’ll be disappointed, they fill that sweet-tooth craving quite nicely! (and they freeze well too, to defrost just let sit on the counter for a few minutes)

    I was wondering if these were suppose to be crunchy like a real Oreo, or if they are suppose to be a little soft – cake-like? Mine came out crunchy, and your pic looks like a soft texture.

    Mine were not as crisp as a bought cookie, but not so soft that I’d call them cake-like either. They were crisper, and that could all depend on how thin your cookies are when you bake them too. I’ve also rolled this out onto a big cookie sheet, baked it whole, then broke it up and put it in the food processor for gluten-free oreo crumbs, they work great in rum balls or as crusts for cheesecakes. HTH!

    Wow, these are awesome! I made a batch of these today, and everyone agreed they taste almost just like the store bought ones!

    I'm having gluten free oreo cake tomorrow!

    yeah! Glad to hear these were a hit. I like to keep the chocolate crumbs on hand, makes it easy to make something like Snickers Pie or Rum Balls at the last minute. :)
    How was your oreo cake??

    Hi, this recipe looks wonderful. But i was wondering do you think it would still be good if instead of the one egg I also use the egg replacer for that one. I've been working on coming up with baked goods and treats for my daughter who has food allergys. It really been challenging because she is not allowed milk, eggs, wheat, soy, nuts or seafood. So egg is one of the things on her no no list. I'm trying to come up with a way to make dirt n worms for a class treat for her class that she can eat as well. Thanks any advice is appreciated.

    Hi Maggie!
    Since you're wanting to make this into crumbs, I'd be tempted to leave the egg out all together. Maybe add a few Tbsp of more liquid (soy or rice milk?) in place of it. The egg will hold it together more, but since you're making crumbs anyway, I'd mix it up, roll it all out on one sheet of parchment & bake it that way, then break it apart for the dirt & worms. Let me know how it works for you!

    Thank you so much. I'm getting ready to dig in and bake away. I'll let you know how it works. :)

    Thank you,
    Maggie

    Oh my goodness! I just made these and they are amazing! They actually do taste like Oreos. I am using some ground into crumbs for Christmas baking, and the others as whole "Oreos". Thanks for the recipe!

    I made these last week and my kids LOVED them. I never really baked before, but now that I have to cook and bake 98% of my food to avoid cross contamination and being deathly ill, I have been on a cooking,and baking spree! THANK-YOU so much for all your recipes they have been so helpful to me!

      Awesome! Glad to hear that the kids are loving them. :) You’re very welcome!

    Do I have to use the egg replacer? Can I use more egg? Or omit it? I just don’t have any. I love your site. It’s new to me and we now refer to your recipes for all our baking needs. Thank you.

      I’ve only made them as written, Melanie, but I’d think you could make it without. Just add an extra 2 tsp of tapioca starch.
