Inside-Out Grain Free Oreos


Did I mention that these have a chocolate protein filling?

I mean fer real. This is a dessert lovers dream, right here ya’ll.

I find cookie making extremely therapeutic. Especially the kind that takes a bit of elbow grease like these guys. I usually have the radio on in the background and leave my phone in my office (unless I need to take a quick pic, of course :D).

For these oreos, you’ll need to have a circle cookie cutter…or at least a make shift one like I had. I used the cap from a spice jar. It was sized perfectly.

These guys don’t really rise or expand much, so you could probably fit in an extra row and be fine.

This was one of those recipes where I purposefully put them somewhere I know Blake won’t look. More for me less for him. MWAHAHA.

The cookie part of the oreo was softer than I thought it was going to be, but I think that’s that’s because it’s pretty much almonds. I don’t mind a softer sandwhich cookie. I just wanted to throw it out there that it’s not super crumbly. 

Side note- there was just a giant flash of lightening outside and I peed a little the crack of thunder was so loud.

Side-Side note. Kansas has the craziest storms I have ever seen. Excuse my french- but I got my shit tossed driving home from a wedding Saturday night. 70 mph gusts of wind. I kid you not I have never been more frightened to drive in my life.

Here are a few photos from this weekend! Blake’s family lives in Kansas and we went back for his dad’s 50th birthday/father’s day/a wedding!


 *Because I know you’re wondering (and I’m a wee bit obsessed) Both of my dresses are from GAP, purchased just last weekend for $41.99 and $21.99*

Kansas people know how to party. Blake’s dad lives outside of Topeka in the country. We had a surprise party for him! There was tons of food and even a live band! His chickens gave him a birthday surprise too…one of the hens laid eggs outside of the coop and 14 chicks hatched that morning! I’m obsessed.

The wedding we went to was in Manhattan…one of Blake’s college buddies. It was an all around really fun weekend! 

Un-side not. Back to cookies.

The chocolate protein filling is where it’s at. All you need is chocolate protein powder, maple syrup, cocoa powder, and almond milk.

I think I forgot to mention that these cookies are vegan, paleo, and gluten free! …depending on the protein powder you use, of course. Inside-Out Grain Free Oreos- vegan, paleo, and gluten-free friendly! via

Inside-Out Grain Free Oreos
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Nutrition Information: 191 calories | 16g carbs | 12g fat | 8g protein | 11g sugar
Serves: 16 cookies
For the Cookie
  • 3 cups almond meal
  • ⅔ cup coconut sugar
  • 3 tablespoons almond milk, unsweetened
For the Chocolate Protein Filling
  • ½ cup chocolate protein powder
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • 3 Tablespoons maple syrup or honey
  • 5 Tablespoons almond milk, unsweetened
  1. First, preheat oven to 350F. Then, prep the sandwich cookie dough by mixing all ingredients together and forming a ball. You'll want your dough to be the consistency of classic cookie dough. Be very mindful of the amount of liquid you use...because you don't need much!
  2. Next, place a piece of parchment paper on a baking sheet. Roll dough out about ½ inch thick and use cookie cutter to cut cookies. Repeat. Place cookies on baking sheet.
  3. Bake at 350 for 14-16 minutes or until cookies begin to turn golden brown.
  4. Transfer cookies onto a cooling rack and let cool completely.
  5. While cookies cool, make chocolate protein filling.
  6. Place all ingredients in a bowl and mix until combined, forming a ball. Just like the cookie dough, roll the filling out about ½ inch thick. Use the same cookie cutter to cut the filling into circles. Place filling in between two cooled cookies.

Confession- I ate every cookie in this batch.

Over a week and a half, okay.

Don’t judge.

    Oh my gee, stop making all these mainstream goodies grain free/paleo/faileo……you’re getting more on the bandwagon.

    This. Looks. Delicious and I’d eat them in a week. Screw a week and a half.

    Gap Australia is a rip off so no can do.

    Ok, I think I’m in love with these cookies! Firstly, Oreo cookies are my fav, but I rarely buy them because they’re so unhealthy. This healthy version looks to die for! Send me some now, k!? 😉

    Can you post any recipes that are NOT paleo, gluten, or dairy free? I like my dairy and gluten. I feel like some of your recipes would actually be even better if they used some traditional ingredients! PS your dresses are adorable.

    I’m not a desert person, but you may turn me into one! By the way, you are just stinking cute! Spoken like a mom!

    COOKIEZ. <3 I'm not a huge fan of real oreos but these things are the REAL DEAL. Yum. I love that you hide them from Blake. If my mom eats when I make something I get mad and tell her I need it for pictures.. really it's just so I can eat it all. mwahahaha :)

    • says

      HAHAHA. Blake always gets mad because “we can’t just eat dinner.” It’s always like an extra hour so I can style and shoot. Hey, at least I made him dinner!

    These look fantastic! I love that they are already gluten free, no adjusting or substituting for me to do! We don’t do a lot of sweets in our house, but I have to try these! Your photos are fantastic!

  7. says

    I like how you repurposed the lid of a jar as a cookie cutter – totally what I’d do to save the money for an actual cutter, haha. Either way, these cookies look perfect and the fact that I have all ingredients aside from the coconut sugar and protein powder [okay, main ingredient] is dangerous…
    On another note you look awesome in that dress and the necklace is beautiful, too.

    These will be absolutely perfect for me to eat while my hubby chows down on his oreos!!! I have to tell you how funny I found your comments about the Kansas weather. I live just outside Topeka around Lake Shawnee and we did have some horrendous thunder going on which is pretty typical around here. Our Border Collie suffers from severe storm anxiety so you can imagine how she was reacting to that storm! Maybe next time I’ll have some of these yummy cookies ready to share with her. Thanks for the recipe!

    am a bit confused about the chocolate protein powder – I thought they all had dairy protein (whey) as an ingredient. Can you share the brand, or what I am to look for, as to keep it dairy free?

    thanks much!,
