Love Oreos? Ever thought of making it at home rather than going and buying them and that too within 1 hour of preparation time? Lets see on a recipe that gives you the best taste of raw Oreos with all the ingredients that are easily available. We will need (for 35 cookies):
Ingredients for the FILLING:

- 1/3 cup cocoa powder

- Lets start with the mixing of coconut butter with vanilla extract and sweetener (here, maple syrup), cocoa powder and salt, mix well and keep it aside.
- Now, grind nuts finely until small bits remain then add coconut oil, dates, maple syrup, cocoa powder and salt and grind really well until incorporated. The mixture should be in a doughy texture that stays together when pressed.
- In this step, you can taste the mixture and add more taste as you need- more salt for saltiness, maple syrup for more sweetening or more cocoa powder for chocolatey flavour.
- Next you do is take a large cutting board and place a parchment paper on it and then put the dough in the centre and press with hands until it has the size of 1 inch disc. Now place one more parchment paper on it.

Now remove the parchment paper from the top and take a small round cookie cutter and start cutting out as many round cookies as it can (here, approx 70 pieces would come out). Make sure the pieces are even in number.
