Low Carb Oreo Cakesters

When I really had to start getting serious about my diet because of my diagnosis of diabetes, I decided that this would mean I would need to get creative with food. See, I am a certified lover of junk food. While I don’t make it my main staple in my diet, I did really love it when I got to eat it. One of my favorite foods was those puffy and delicious Oreo cakesters that came out a few years ago. While they do make many lower carb/sugar free versions of Oreos and sandwich cookies like them, I have yet to find a single cakester. I decided to come up with a recipe that would be lower carb and still allow me to enjoy the cookies I love. These are so good, they were gone in no time and my family didn’t even know they were low carb and sugar free until I told them!

For the icing/filling, I used sugar free frosting and whipped it a bit in my mixer to give it a better texture. I hope you enjoy these delicious goodies!

Low Carb Oreo Cakesters
  • ⅓ Cup Unsalted Butter
  • ⅓ Cup unsweetened Chocolate chips
  • 1¾ Wheat Flour
  • ½ Cup Cocoa Powder, Unsweetened
  • ¾ Tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 Cup Splenda
  • 1 Egg plus 1 Egg White
  • ½ Tsp Vanilla Extract
  • ⅓ Cup Milk
  • Pinch of Salt
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add in the chocolate chips and melt over medium low heat until smooth.
  3. Mix flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, Splenda and salt until well mixed.
  4. Add in your vanilla extract and milk.
  5. Slowly add in eggs and mix on medium high in your mixer for a minute or two.
  6. Pour in your chocolate chip/butter mixture and blend well.
  7. Roll out onto a lightly floured surface. It will be kind of like really moist playdough and will not feel stiff like most cookie doughs.
  8. Using a small round cookie cutter, cut out shapes and place on a lightly floured or greased cookie sheet.
  9. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
  10. When completely cooled, place some frosting on one cookie and make a sandwich with another. Enjoy!

  6. My Dad has diabetes and I am always looking for a nice treat to make him that is not to fattening and has a lot of sugar in it. I see that this recipe is made with Splenda. That is awesome. We like Splenda in recipes and coffee. It does not have a bad after taste. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
