These naturally pink Paleo “Oreos” have a luscious coconut cream filling that’s completely dairy- and gluten-free.
Almond meal and coconut flour work together to create a gluten-free cookie, while beet powder creates a naturally pink color.
You’ll start by making the cookies first. Simply combine almond meal, coconut flour and the rest of the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. Separately, whisk together honey, coconut oil and an egg, then carefully sift in the dry mixture until you get a thick, homogeneous dough. Roll out the dough between two sheets of parchment paper, and then chill in the refrigerator before cutting the dough into small circles with a cookie cutter.

Bake the cookies for 15 minutes, or until they are firm to the touch. Meanwhile, prepare the Oreo filling by whisking coconut cream with tapioca starch and stevia powder. Let the coconut filling chill until the cookies have been baked and completely cooled. Use a spoon or a piping bag to cover half the cookies, and top each one with a second cookie.
Enjoy your pink Oreos with a cold glass of almond milk!
