These healthy Oreo bars are made with an Oreo crust and the filling is made with cashews and yogurt, making these slightly more guilt-free than regular Oreo-based desserts.
for the crust:
20 Oreo cookies
3/4 cup unsalted or dairy free butter, melted
for the filling:
2 heaping cups soaked cashews, rinsed
1/2 cup almond milk or milk of choice
1/4 cup plain or soy-based yogurt
1/3 cup maple syrup
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp lemon juice
1/2 cup Oreos, crushed
Line an 8×8 baking dish with parchment paper.
To make the crust: combine Oreos and butter in a food processor until all the Oreos are broken up. Press crust into the bottom of your baking dish.
Add all of the filling ingredients EXCEPT for the Oreos to your food processor or your blender (I prefer my blender for this) and blend until mixture is smooth. If you’re having trouble blending it, add more milk 1 tbsp at a time.
Pour mixture into a bowl, then stir in the crushed Oreos by hand. Pour filling over top of Oreo crust, using a spatula to smooth it out. Sprinkle with extra Oreo crumbs.
Place baking dish in the refrigerator and refrigerate until bars have set, at least 3 hours.
