contained either soy, egg or sunflower oil. And this means off limits. *sigh* Doesn’t matter. I. will. fix. this.
I had bit of an oops moment with these. I didn’t realize I needed an emulsifier for the missing eggs. You’ll notice some of the measurements are little strange and that explains it. I’ll keep working on this and get a revision the next time I make these.
- 1 cup sorghum flour
- 1 cup + 1 T teff flour
- 1 cup + 2 T sweet rice flour
- 1/4 cup white rice flour
- 3/4 cup cocoa powder
- 3/4 cup non hydrogenated organic palm shortening
- 3/4 cup organic sugar
- 5 T milk of choice
- 1/2 cup applesauce
- 3/4 tsp xanthan gum
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 2 cups organic powdered sugar
- 1/2 cup non-hydrogenated organic palm shortening
- 1 tsp vanilla
- Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
- Beat shortening, applesauce, milk, and sugar for 2-3 minutes.
- Add dry ingredients. Dough should be thick but not dry and crumbly.
- Roll out between 2 sheets of parchment paper.
- Cut into small circles. Transfer to baking sheet.
- Bake 9-10 minutes. They will harden a little after they cool on the pan.
- Beat shortening until fluffy and add in vanilla.
- Slowly add in powdered sugar. Scrape sides of bowl and continue to beat until fluffy. Filling will appear slightly dry. You may add more shortening or milk if you want a smoother texture, however, the cookies may get soft if there is too much moisture.
- Scoop filling into ziplock bag and cut off one corner to pipe filling on to center of cookies.

How would I make these a vanilla cookie Oreo instead of chocolate. My son is allergic to cocoa as well as the other ingredients in a traditional Oreo. Yours is the first recipe that addresses all his allergies except for cocoa.
Hi Sandra, I think these could be made cocoa free. One option could be to substitute carob powder if your son isn’t allergic to it since carob is very similar to chocolate. Another option is to add more flour in place of the cocoa… I think a little less flour (compared to the full cocoa amount) should be used since flour will absorb more moisture than cocoa powder. I also think adding extra all purpose gluten free flour would be the easiest to try first. I hope that helps!

Is there a replacement for the: non hydrogenated organic palm shortening.
Where I live they don’t sell this product.
Hi there! If you can have soy, regular vegetable shortening or even regular butter could be used.
These sound amazing. I was wondering I have both a GF all purpose flour and a GF 1 to 1 ratio flour, can I use those instead?
These were soooo good! We got 31 sandwich cookies total ( 2 inch diameter). I used a gluten free flour blend and lightly sifted first, then measured. Came out perfect! I will be making these again! Thank You !!!!!
Amazing idea! Really loved the recipe it’s self and all the flavors and tastes that went on in one delicious bite! Would definitely recommend this 100%!
