Real Food Recipe: Paleo-friendly Oreo chocolate cookie sandwich

Thrive Primal - real food oreo recipe

We all have memories of those delicious naughty foods we used to eat care-free in childhood. Things like chicken fingers, pizza, chips and candy.

Although I know better now and definitely don’t buy those things anymore, nor would I feel them to my children, I don’t think it’s a reason to deprive ourselves of tasty, health-conscious treats.

I’ve engineered this real-food Oreo-inspired cookie sandwich recipe with high quality ingredients and only a little natural sweetener. You can make them paleo or primal, it’s up to you!

Personally we buy raw organic grass-fed dairy from a farm nearby in Ontario (check out this post for how I found it) so I used some nice fresh mascarpone for the filling. Use the cleanest ingredients you can get your hands on!

Real Food Recipe: Paleo-friendly Oreo chocolate cookie sandwich

A delicious real-food paleo/primal friendly Oreo style cookie sandwich! Make with or without dairy.


  • 1 cup rice flour (alternatively use 1/2 cup almond, 3 tbsp coconut flour, 2 tbsp arrowroot or tapioca flour)
  • 1/2 cup good quality cocoa powder (I get mine HERE)
  • 2 tbsp melted butter (ideally grass-fed organic) or coconut oil
  • pinch of good quality vanilla (I get mine HERE)
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch of baking soda
  • 1/2 cup good dark chocolate chunks (buy or make your own by attacking a chocolate block!)
  • 4 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 2 tbsp real maple syrup
  • 2 free-range eggs
  • 1/2 cup raw organic milk or coconut milk
  • For the filling:
  • 2-3 cups of either coconut whipped cream (recipe here) OR raw grass-fed organic whipped cream, sour cream or mascarpone (I used mascarpone)


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees F / 180 C.
  2. Place a sheet of parchment paper on a cookie sheet.
  3. Make your chocolate chunks, if you didn't buy ready-made ones. Basically attack a block of dark chocolate until you're happy with the size of your chunks :)
  4. Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl until smooth.
  5. Make golf-ball sized balls and flatten them - they will not spread in the oven so make them look as you want them to look.
  6. Bake about 15 minutes or until the tops spring back.
  7. Let the cookies cool a bit, then scoop on your whipped cream (coconut or dairy). Eat right away, or you can put them in the freezer for 1-2 hours if you want them to be like ice cream sandwiches! They are also delicious with some warmed frozen raspberries spooned over them.


You could add some essential oils to the cream to make mint oreos, or orange oreos!

If you make these, let me know how they turned out! Did you adjust the recipe or make it with whatever you had in the pantry? Do you find these as satisfying as “real” Oreos, and do they feel better in the belly? Do the kids like them?
