This recipe is so healthy that it kind of hurts... my sweet tooth because I ate SO many of these dang things! I can never quite justify buying or eating Oreo's despite their supposedly 'vegan' status because they contain non-sustainable palm oil and I'm not about deforestation and destruction of valuable habitat for hundreds of animals. No thank you! These are fudgey, chocolate-y, nourishing, and full of amazing raw and activated ingredients from Little Bird Organics' Pantry Staples range. Yum! However, if you leap into this recipe expecting it to taste just like a baked, white-sugar-laden, refined cookie then you will be sorely disappointed. This is more like a raw dessert in the shape of a tasty Oreo cookie - inspired loosely, if you will.
