Healthier Homemade “Oreos”

With the holidays upon us, it’s time to start thinking of creative gift ideas. This is the time of year people start making their Christmas lists and shopping for loved ones! Recently, the “Oreo Milkshake Kit” has gone viral and seems to be on a lot of Christmas lists. Oreos have also been on our radar this year because, well, they’re pretty awesome with their mystery flavors, seasonal fillings, and because most flavors are in fact dairy-free!

We thought we would put together some plant-based ways to make America’s favorite cookie for you with recipes from our Food Monster App. If you love Oreos as much as we do, but don’t love processed, store-bought foods, no need to worry! With these Oreo-incorporated and Oreo-inspired desserts, you’ll find the perfect homemade treat to bring to your holiday party this year.
