Ket-Oreos! (Low-Carb Oreos)


Every once and a while I get a craving for super-processed-magically-delicious Oreos. Yeah, I know…they are absolutely terrible. Maybe it’s just childhood nostalgia. Yeah, let’s go with that.

I decided to make a healthier, low-carb version!

These are pretty simple to make! Basically, it’s a chocolate shortbread cookie filled with cream cheese icing! They really kill a sweet tooth and go great with coffee or a nice glass of flax milk!

The ENTIRE batch had about 34 net carbs. So the individual cookies are less than 1 net carb each!

Cream Filling

  • 4 oz. cream cheese – softened
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup powdered Swerve (you can grind granulated Swerve in a spice grinder)
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a medium bowl mix together the dry ingredients.
  3. In a separate bowl, cream together the Swerve and butter until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
  4. Add egg and vanilla, mix until fully combined.
  5. Add dry ingredients and mix until combined.
  6. Roll out dough between two sheets of waxed paper to a rectangle about 1/8 of an inch thick. Using a circle cutter, cut out as many cookies as you can. Place them onto a parchment-lined cookie sheet. Re-roll out cookie dough until you run out!
  7. Bake cookies for 12 minutes. Let cool completely before filling.

To make filling:

  1. Using a food processor, cream together cream cheese, and butter.
  2. Mix in vanilla extract.
