Chocolate Oreo Cookies (GF, VG, RFS)
Sharing is caring!
Gluten free and vegan chocolate sandwich cookies with a marshmallow filling. These are a great dupe for traditional Oreos. They are crunchy on the outside and soft n sticky in the middle. You can even dunk them in a glass of milk!
Let’s talk about the gloriousness that is an Oreo cookie. My favourite thing was to twist one apart scrape off the white crème filling with my teeth first and then dunk the chocolate biscuit in a glass of milk. It’s been a few years since that happen but now I can happily return to my favourite past time. Thanks to my dupe chocolate Oreo cookies recipe and a glass of Alpro coconut milk.
Gluten free and vegan cookies/biscuits are hard to find. Especially when you can’t tolerate GF oats either. The chocolate biscuit base turned out amazing and are a great biscuit in their own right.
The biscuit was the easy part to create the filling on the other hand was not. Trying to find a suitable filling was not easy. I didn’t want to make the traditional vanilla fondant. Experimenting took a while. I tried several different ideas like a cashew cream cheese, aquafaba meringue and a whipped coconut cream. None of them worked out how I wanted either the taste or texture wasn’t right.
This is how I ended up with a marshmallow filling. For this I used refined sugar free marshmallows I bought from Sainsburys. Now they aren’t vegan but you can buy vegan ones, I just couldn’t find any in stores. The biscuit is completely gluten free and vegan though don’t worry.
Get creative and use anything for the filling you like. You can get powdered sweeteners to make sugar free buttercream which is something am looking into. If you have had success using any powdered sweeteners before let me now in the comment section below.
Taking the leftovers from all the recipe testing I do into work with me is a great way to get feedback from others. These chocolate Oreos cookies were a big hit and nobody could taste that they were a healthier dupe. It’s great to have a place to take what I bake and get feedback from people who don’t have any food intolerances.
Overall my aim with this blog is to show you how to enjoy food and not feel like you’re missing out because of certain allergies/intolerances. I hope you find all the recipes here helpful and of course delicious.

Chocolate Oreo Cookies (GF, VG, RFS)
- 100 grams GF flour i used an asda own brand
- 30 grams coconut oil
- 20 grams natvia sweetener
- 20 grams raw cacao powder
- 3 tbsp coconut milk i used Alpro
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- pinch salt
- 80 grams refined sugar free marshmallow (and vegan if necessary) i used Sainsburys own brand
Pre heat oven to 175c
Melt coconut oil in the microwave. In a medium sized bowl combine all the biscuit ingredients together and stir well to combine. Until a dough has formed.
In between to sheets of grease proof paper roll out the dough thin. Using a round cookie cutter or a round jar lid. Cut out 14 cookies and poke a few holes in the dough.
Move the grease proof paper with the cookie dough on to a baking tray and bake for 16-18 minutes at 175c.
Leave to cool on tray for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
While the cookies cool. Melt down the marshmallows over a double boiler. Stirring often to avoid the marshmallows from burning.
Once melted remove the marshmallows from the heat and working quickly before the marshmallows cool down to much. Spread a tablespoon or two in between two cookies and sandwich them together.
Once all the cookies are complete leave them to cool completely. Before storing them in an airtight container. If you live in a hot country then i suggest storing them in the fridge to stop the marshmallows from melting.
