A delicious, creamy & rich mint moringa filling between two crunchy chocolate cookies. 


Mint Moringa Oreos (Vegan & Gluten-free)

I have made a raw version of Oreos in the past, but today I’m showing you how to make baked Oreo cookies filled with a refreshing mint and moringa filling. They’re gluten-free and completely plant-based. 

Mint and chocolate is such a delicious combination. In fact, my favourite chocolate flavour is mint dark chocolate. I usually have a square or two after dinner if I don’t have any homemade treats lying around. Yes, I don’t always have an abundance of homemade treats in my house at all times 😂 Shocker, right?

Even the hubby enjoyed these mint moringa Oreos and he’s not at all a fan of mint chocolate. He says to him it tastes like toothpaste…what?!? I find it so refreshing and palate cleansing, again especially after a meal.

This is my second recipe collaborating with FERA Moringa. I was challenged to use moringa in a more creative way. Most moringa fans would usually add it to their morning smoothie, juice or porridge/oatmeal bowl, which is completely fine, but I wanted to find more exciting way to use this amazing ingredient. 

Moringa is derived from the moringa leaf, which is one of the most nutrient-dense plants on the planet packed with minerals, essential amino acids, antioxidants, phytonutrients and anti-inflammatory compounds. Incorporating it into recipes like this is a really easy way to top up on nutrients making sure you’re getting sufficient amounts in your diet.

  1. How scrumptious do they look?!? And the filling looks so creamy, I can almost taste it Nadia!
    This is for sure way more exciting way to use Moringa, comparing to the ones I’ve seen and heard of before!!!

  2. I’m totally with your husband re. mint chocolate – I don’t like it either for exactly the same reason!

    I’m also not a fan of Oreos – I’ve never understood why so many people love them… but I have to say that your version looks fantastic. So moist and delicious. And what beautiful colours too! xx

  3. These look fantastic! Gorgeous photos and I bet they’re delicious too. I’ve never tried moringa and am feeling rather inspired 🙂 p.s. my husband is exactly the same about chocolate and mint but I love it!

  4. I love how healthy these cookies are. Moringa is absolutely amazing and I already tried the wonderful Moringa powder from FeraMoringa and totally love it. Beautiful photos my dear 🙂
