Step 1: Make the Cookies

In a food processor, mix together 1 cup of rolled oats, 1/2 cup of raw cacao powder, and 1/4 tsp of sea salt. Pulse until the oats are finely ground.

Next, add in 8 pitted Medjool dates and pulse until they are chopped up small. Then add in 1 cup of raw almonds and pulse again until it forms a coarse meal.

Add in
3 tbsp of tahini
3 tbsp of maple syrup
1 tsp of vanilla extract
2 tbsp of melted coconut oil

Pulse all the ingredients together until they form a thick, sticky dough. If it seems too dry, add in 1-2 tablespoons of water.

Step 2: Chill the Dough

Transfer the dough to a bowl, cover it, and put it in the fridge to chill for 20-30 minutes.

Step 3: Form into Cookies

Take out the dough from the fridge and form into cookie shapes or use a cookie cutter, about 1 inch in diameter.

Step 4: Assemble into Cookies

In a separate bowl, mix together:
– 1/2 cup coconut butter
– 3 tbsp melted coconut oil
– 2 tbsp lemon juice
– 1 tsp vanilla
– pinch of sea salt

Carefully dip each cookie into the mixture to coat them with a thin layer of chocolate.

Then place it onto parchment paper or silicone mats and let it sit on room temperature for a while.

Step 5: Freezing

For firmer cookies, put them on the freezer for an hour before serving. You can also store unused raw oreo cookies on an air-tight container, refrigerate for up to a week or freeze up to three months.

Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating

 Each cookie is a perfect little sandwich of pure decadence.

When it comes to make-ahead, storing, and reheating these raw vegan oreo cookies, there are some key things to keep in mind. Firstly, since these cookies are raw and don’t contain any preservatives or additives, they will have a shorter shelf life than store-bought cookies. However, if you store them properly, you can extend their lifespan.

To make ahead, you can prepare the cookie dough in advance and shape it into balls. Place the balls on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and put them in the freezer for about an hour or until they are firm. Once they are firm, transfer them to a ziplock bag and store them in the freezer for up to three months.

When you’re ready to bake them, simply take out as many cookie dough balls as you need and let them thaw at room temperature for about 15-20 minutes before rolling them in the cocoa powder mixture.

If you have leftovers or want to store baked cookies for later consumption, the best way to store them is in an airtight container in your refrigerator. They will stay fresh for up to one week. You can also freeze the baked cookies if you wish. Simply place them in an airtight container or ziplock bag and store them in the freezer for up to three months.

When it comes to reheating these raw vegan oreo cookies, it’s not necessary since they are served chilled. However, if you prefer your cookies warm or if they’ve been stored in the freezer, allow them to come to room temperature before eating or reheat them in a dehydrator at 115°F (46°C) for 2-3 hours until warm and crumbly.

Remember that these raw vegan oreo cookies are best enjoyed fresh or within a few days of making them. So make sure you only make what you’ll eat or share with others for optimal taste and texture.

Tips for Perfect Results

 You won’t believe that these cookies are both raw and vegan – they’re that good!
You won’t believe that these cookies are both raw and vegan – they’re that good!

Here are some essential tips to make sure your raw vegan Oreo cookies turn out perfectly every time:

First, be sure to use high-quality ingredients. When it comes to cocoa powder, look for brands that are of good quality and organic. The same applies to nuts, dates, and coconut butter. Using top-tier ingredients will help ensure that the final product tastes great and is as healthy as possible.

Secondly, if you don’t have a food processor, using a blender instead. A food processor is typically the superior option, but if you don’t have one, a high-speed blender should work just fine.

Thirdly, when making the chocolate cookie part of the cookie sandwich, try not to over-process the dough. Over-processing can result in an overly sticky dough that’s challenging to handle. Instead of processing all of the ingredients at once, it may be beneficial to process them in batches.

If you prefer an extra crispy texture for your raw Oreo cookies, you can bake them at low heat temperature for a few minutes.

Fourthly, when assembling the cookies together with the filling make sure not to apply too much pressure when pressing them together to maintain the shape of the cookies

Finally, after you’ve finished preparing your cookies store them in an airtight container in your refrigerator. Raw cookies make fantastic snacks that can last up to 10 days while maintaining their freshness.

Following these easy guidelines will make sure that your raw vegan Oreo cookies always come out perfectly delicious!

The popular cookie brand, Oreo, claims that their cookies are vegan; however, upon closer inspection of the ingredients listed on their official website, there may be some uncertainty about whether or not they truly meet the criteria of a vegan snack.
