But… What If I Can’t Eat Oreos?
Now that you have a bajillion tasty Oreo recipes to choose from, I bet you might have some questions, especially allergy-related questions, so that all of your guests can enjoy your yummy treats this holiday season.
Just remember that when it comes to food allergies, where there’s a will, there’s a way, because there are so many good-quality substitutes, no matter the allergy!
How Can I Make Gluten Free Oreo Recipes?
Right when I first had to stop eating gluten, over a decade ago, there were hardly any options. It was basically cardboard vs. more cardboard. I missed my beloved Oreos sooooo much! Now there are so many gluten free Oreo substitutes!
One of my favorite brands is gluten free Glutino Chocolate Vanilla Cream Cookie because they taste just like the real thing.
Are Oreo Recipes Vegan/ Dairy Free?
Yes, and no! If you purchase Oreos manufactured in the USA, they are vegan. Other countries have different ingredients in their cream filling, that are not necessarily vegan.
It is definitely possible to make these Oreo recipes vegan, with a few extra steps:
- You can easily substitute eggs with a flaxseed meal replacement of 1 teaspoon flaxseed meal with 2 1/2 Tablespoons of water to constitute one egg.
- There are tons of vegan butter substitutes for baking – check your favorite specialty grocery for selections.
- One item that doesn’t really have a pre-packaged substitute is chocolate candy melts. They are quite often a go-to with Oreo recipes, but that is off the table for vegans. Instead, try melting some vegan white chocolate chips and add food coloring for a vegan version to use to decorate your festive Oreo treats!
History of Oreos
I don’t know about you, but I am always looking for fun, hands-on ways to engage and educate my kids. Learning more about the history of the Oreo could be a lot of fun!
Nabisco, originally known as the National Biscuit Country, introduced the Oreo biscuit on March 6, 1912. Although Hydrox cookies were invented two years earlier, Oreos would become the most popular cookie of the 20th century. This classic cookie continues to be an American favorite nearly 100 years after it was introduced.–Leaf TV, History of Nabisco
