1 fat, 1/2 grain20140305-132228.jpg

Happy National Oreo Day! Of course, today I just had to celebrate America’s beloved cookie. I decided to make a mini version just for kicks. Feel free to double the recipe and make big ones. Here was the process…

1/3 cup all purpose flour

1.5 tbs cocoa powder

1/4 tsp baking soda

3 tbsp brown sugar

3 tbsp coconut oil, melted

1 tbsp egg white*

1/4 tsp vanilla

>> Combine dry and wet ingredients separately, then mix together. The dough will be a little crumby so using plastic wrap roll the dough into a log. Refrigerate for 15 mins. Take the dough out and cut about 1cm pieces to make the cookies. Place them on a sheet and bake for 7 min. at 350F.

>>To make the filling combine 4 tbsp confectioners sugar and 1/2 tbsp soy milk. Refrigerate 20 mins so it firms up. If you like a lot of filling, double this, as it only makes enough for a very thin layer.

*Add 1/2 tbsp flax meal and 1.5 tbsp water if you are making them vegan

This should yield about 36 cookies or 18 mini sandwiches.

4 cookies (2 sandwiches) counts for 1 fat and 1/2 grain exchange
