How To Make Keto Oreos
This low carb oreo recipe does take some time to assemble, but all the steps are really easy.
For the low carb oreo cookies:
- Cream butter and sweetener. Beat butter and Besti Monk Fruit Allulose Blend in a medium sized bowl, until fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla.
- Mix dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, whisk almond flour, cocoa powder, and sea salt.
- Form keto oreo dough. Combine wet and dry ingredients into the same bowl and beat with a hand mixer.
- Chill. Shape dough into a rectangle, wrap in plastic wrap, and chill until firm.
- Shape cookies. Remove plastic wrap and roll dough out into a thin sheet between two pieces of parchment, about 1/4-inch thick. Cut cookies into circles with a mason jar (these will be larger than traditional oreos!).
TIP: Work with very cold dough and chill as needed while rolling out, so it holds shape. Use a thin frosting knife to get under the cookie dough cutouts. Roll as thin as you can and as quickly as you can. Don’t worry though, the dough IS forgiving. If the cookie crumbles as you try to move the dough with the pastry knife, you can re-roll the dough.
- Bake. They are done when they are firm. Cool completely before filling them.
For the sugar-free oreo filling:
- Make frosting for keto oreo cookies. In a medium bowl, beat together coconut oil and Besti Powdered Monk Fruit Allulose Blend. Add heavy cream one teaspoon at a time, until a stiff frosting has formed.
How to assemble keto friendly oreos:
- Make keto oreo sandwiches. Pipe filling onto cooled cookies, or use a cake knife to spread 1-2 teaspoons per cookie and top with another cookie to make a sandwich.
Low Carb Oreos FAQs
Are oreos keto?
Traditional packaged oreos are not keto friendly, as they are made with white flour and sugar.
This keto oreo cookies recipe is made with keto-friendly ingredients and each cookie has just 3.5 grams net carbs.
Are oreos gluten free?
No, traditional oreos are not gluten-free, since they are made with wheat flour.
In this gluten free oreo recipe, nutritious Wholesome Yum Foods Almond Flour is used, which is naturally gluten-free.
Can I use coconut flour?
Unfortunately, substituting coconut flour for almond flour would require a lot of recipe changes, so is not recommended.
Can I use a different sweetener?
Yes, you can swap sugar substitutes for this recipe. You’ll need:
- Granulated sweetener for the oreo cookies – Like granulated allulose, monk fruit, or erythritol. Keep in mind that allulose-based sweeteners will make softer cookies.
- Powdered sweetener for the frosting – Like powdered allulose, powdered monk fruit, or powdered erythritol. This consistency is important for a smooth texture.
If you use something other than what is listed on the recipe card, use the sweetener conversion calculator to figure out how much to use.
Keto Oreo Cookies Storage Instructions

How to store low carb oreo cookies
Store these gluten-free oreos at room temperature for 1-2 days, or in the fridge for 5-7 days.

You can also freeze the cookies for 1-2 months. I recommend freezing them in a single layer on a parchment lined baking sheet first, to avoid sticking or crushing. Once they are solid, transfer them to a freezer bag or storage container.

Just wondering if I could replace 1C of the almond flour with about 1/3C coconut flour? I want to use less almond flour due to some of the inflammatory properties of almond flour.
Maya | Wholesome Yum0
Hi Jamie, Possibly, but I haven’t tried it. I usually don’t recommend using these flours interchangeably, but when you do replace, 1/4 to 1/3 cup coconut flour to replace 1 cup almond flour is the right ratio, so you’re on the right track there. Sometimes adding an extra egg is also required, but that might not be the case for cookies. Let me know how it goes if you give it a try.
I’m not sure if I made them wrong, but the cookies were suuuper bitter and kind of ruined the whole thing for me. I’d love to try again but I don’t know why they’re so bitter. Any suggestions?

Hi McKalya, What type of cocoa powder did you use? If you used natural, unsweetened cocoa powder, it tends to be a bit bitter. I like using dutch processed cocoa powder, as it has more defined chocolate flavors and less of a bitter bite.
I did use the Hershey’s baking cocoa. Should I just add more sweetener next time?
Wholesome Yum M0
Hi McKayla, It may still have a bitter edge, but more sweetener will help to smooth it out.
can I use coconut cream instead of heavy cream for the filling?
Wholesome Yum M0
Hi Birdy4Life, Yes, coconut cream will work well.
I’ve had good luck with rolling the cookie dough into a log and chilling it. Then use a cheese wire to slice the individual cookies to bake. I just thought I’d share a quick tip. I hope you don’t mind.
