Keto Cookies and Cream Cupcakes

So these Keto Cookies and Cream Cupcakes may be one of the longest recipes I've ever shared here.. (But NOT most difficult I promise). 

I originally made these for a friend's birthday not thinking I'd ever share them but after some thought I figured the world deserved to know about these keto oreo cupcakes…because well, they are just downright DELICIOUS and possibly the best keto cupcakes I've ever made (though my Carrot Cupcakes are definitely up there as well).

The actual keto chocolate cupcakes themselves are AMAZING. They texture was just phenomenal. These are light and fluffy (the lightest of any keto cupcake I've made!) and yet so moist. They taste identical to regular chocolate cupcakes. I'm not kidding. 

Then the oreo filling..oh the oreo filling. It caused me a lot of issues at first trying to get it sturdy enough to frost the cupcakes but once I did it was PERFECT. 

I had this idea to combine vanilla custard with whipped cream to make these delicious sweet frosting like the inside of an oreo but sadly it couldn't hold up on it's own so I had to add whipped cream cheese to give it some structure…

..and honestly I'm not even made about it. The cream cheese added this tanginess to the frosting that just gave it that little extra something. In my personal recipe I used vanilla bean powder in my custard and frosting to get those little black specks and I thought that tasted great but I listed vanilla extract in the recipe since I know not everyone has vanilla bean powder on hand! It's just a nice little bonus if you do. 

Last but not least we have our delicious oreo cookie. This is a recipe I had been perfecting for a while and actually have used before to make Keto Oreo Balls, Keto Oreo Cheesecake Bars and Keto Oreo Cookies themselves.

All of those recipes were awesome but I feel this one really takes the cake…or the cupcake, lol.

The oreo chunks mixed into the frosting of these Keto Cookies and Cream Cupcakes makes for such a tasty combo. These really do taste like oreo cookies!!

They also look really cute. I think anyone would be happy to have these on their birthday.

Ingredients In Keto Oreo Cupcakes

  • Almond Flour & Coconut Flour – I use the Kirkland Costco brand of almond flour (I buy it in bulk on Amazon or at Costco itself occasionally) and this brand of coconut flour for this recipe. As I’ve noted in many of my past recipes, the brand of almond and coconut flour can affect the final outcome of the recipe because absorbency can vary depending on how the flour has been processed.
  • Powdered Monkfruit Erythritol Sweetener – I use the SoNourished brand for both granular and powdered sweetener and love it! The powdered is the best option for no-bake goods and desserts where you want a very smooth final product. I also used the powdered in this recipe because it works great in baked goods but ALSO creates perfect frosting every time!
    Xanthan gum – This is used to create a batter more similar to that of white flour. It helps give the muffins a chewier texture.
  • Arrowroot Starch – This can be substituted with cornstarch. It adds a lightness to the cupcakes and keeps them moist inside! It's become one of my new favourite ingredients
  • Unsweetened Cocoa Powder – Rodelle is my favourite brand of cocoa powder! It just always tastes really great in every recipe I've tried. But you could also use dark cocoa to get that oreo colour naturally in the muffins and cookie portion of this recipe.
  • Vanilla Extract – You can use any you prefer, I tend to use pure vanilla but artificial or vanilla powder also work. I actually added vanilla powder to my frosting because I loved the flavour and little black specks it added!

Tips For Making Keto Oreo Cupcakes

  • Temperature of ingredients is always important in a recipe like this. Make sure your cream cheese is softened, eggs are room temperature, coconut oil is melted, heavy cream in the cupcakes is room temperature and heavy cream and boston cream in the frosting is COLD.
  • I like to break my oreo cookie into some larger and some smaller pieces, just make sure they are large enough to go through the opening in the piping bag. You can also use some for topping like I did at the end if you want. 
  • If you don't want to make the Boston Cream in this recipe, you can also use half of a prepared Simply Delish Vanilla Pudding Mix for a similar flavour. (Use SAMMYSAM for 10% OFF)
  • To lower the carbs of this recipe, you can use heavy cream to make the cupcakes themselves, you also will likely not need all of the topping so take them into account as well. These are also just really great chocolate cupcakes on their own if you want to add your own frosting!
  • If you don't have Sukrin brown sugar sweetener, you can also sub more regular sweetener and just add 1 tsp molasses for the same flavour (or skip the molasses all together)
