Home-made healthy Oreos- Success? Or failure?

May 25, 2009

Well I first of all want to say that these cannot be a failure. I have new criteria/causes for failure

  1. Fatigue- During a race, a test, homework, a workout, baking, cooking etc… Fatigue causes slacking, slacking causes failure.
  2. Not Feeling like It- aka Laziness… In workouts, work, and anything.
  3. Fear- never attempting something in the first place, holding back, second guessing yourself…

So I will start out by saying I was fully energized while feeling like taking a risk and making homemade healthy Oreos. So they can’t be a failure. They could be a learning experience though, we shall find out. They’re in the oven.

2 eggs
2 tbsp. Sesame oil
2/3 cup cocoa
1.5 tsp coffee granules (instant

2 tbsp boiling water

1 1/4 cups whole wheat white flour

1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
½ cup maple syrup

½ cup sucant

1 tsp vanilla


Combine eggs, sugar, syrup, vanilla, oil and whisk heavily

Combine flour and Leavening and salt Wisk

Coffee and cocoa… add 2 tbsp boiling water to coffee cocoa, work into past as best possible. Work into wet mixture, Wisk till very smooth. Pour wet over dry, work until smooth, do not overwork.

Refrigerate for 20 minutes (15-20)

Use 1 tsp measurer to make the cookies (slightly heaping) dip the bottom of a flat glass in water and squish down a lot. Sprinkle with a little sugar

Bake at 350 for 4 minute on one side, rotate and 4 minutes on the others side. Squish when done, this time with a fork.

Let cool 2 minutes on the tray then transfer to a cooling rack

The verdict… Interesting. Not crunchy enough but defiantly different. I have a new Idea, I’m going to make cookies and cream ice-cream… with soymilk, vanilla, stevia, cornstarch, kahluah, and crushed cookies mixed in… what do you think??

The Wet

Wet Before Cocoa

Wet after cocoa

The Cocoa!




These were the tablespoon sized… Much too big

Teaspoon sized… much better

The integrated batter


After being pressed


And the final product

    I don’t think I ever updated with the outcome of this recipe: These were fun, sort’ve like flat brownie bites. They weren’t sweet enough but promply whent into the freezer, where they have been transformed into “Brownie Incognito Kahluah Fro-yo,” and about a million cookies& cream smoothies.
    I wouldn’t make these again, at least without some major revisions!
