Mummy Cookies – Texanerin Baking


These mummy cookies get their black coloration and Oreo taste from black cocoa and never meals coloring! You need to use all-purpose, complete wheat, or gluten-free flour. They’re naturally eggless however have a incredible texture. For those who use vegan sweet eyes, then they’re additionally vegan.

Common readers: for those who’ve already learn my put up on Black Cookies, no must learn this one because it’s just about the identical.

Black cocoa is what’s used to make Oreos, and that’s simply what these cookies style like. However with a greater texture!

At the least in my view. These cookies are completely chewy with crisp edges.

And once you press them down once they come out of the oven, they make the right base for adorning Halloween cookies!


  • Flour – I’ve examined this cookie recipe with all-purpose, white and common complete wheat, and a couple of varieties of gluten-free flour. Extra particulars are under.
  • Black cocoa powder – once more, heaps extra element under. 🙂
  • Coconut oil – I all the time use refined coconut oil in non-coconut taste goodies as a result of I don’t need any coconut taste. You need to use unrefined for those who’d like some coconut taste in your cookies. I believe it’d be bizarre in these cookies, however you possibly can definitely experiment.
  • Granulated sugar – keto and liquid sweeteners don’t work right here, by the way in which.
  • Brown sugar – you possibly can change this and the granulated with coconut sugar for those who’d like, however it does detract from the Oreo taste. Extra under.
  • Baking powder, vanilla, salt and water
  • Powdered sugar – no sub for this. It’s wanted for the white decorations on high of the cookies, so it must be white.
  • Milk of alternative or water – any will work. I take advantage of unsweetened cashew milk.
  • Sweet eyeballs – observe that Wilton and different store-bought sweet eyeballs should not vegan! I hyperlink to my favourite do-it-yourself recipe under.

Methods to make them

It’s only a fundamental cookie recipe, and also you don’t even have to relax the dough.

For those who do chill the dough, it will get laborious and weirdly crumbly within the fridge. Simply let it sit at room temperature till it’s mushy. Then, you possibly can kind balls, and it’ll bake up usually.

To make the cookies, you combine collectively the dry components in a single bowl.

Beat collectively the moist components in one other bowl, after which stir within the dry combine.

Roll into balls and bake!

Once they come out of the oven, they’ll be a little bit puffy and maybe a little bit cracked. Use the underside of a flat, clean glass to press the cookies down.

I spent half a day experimenting with the right way to get completely formed cookies with this recipe (together with the extra mounded black cookies with chocolate chips). It was sort of absurd. Nevertheless it was price it to search out one of the best ways!

For those who press them down earlier than baking, they don’t look almost as good. Bake and press is the way in which to go.

Then you definately allow them to cool utterly, make the icing, put it in a piping bag and enhance. I’m undoubtedly not expert in the case of adorning issues, and even I might make these mummy cookies look good. So you possibly can, too. 🙂

Black cocoa powder manufacturers

For those who learn my Black Ice Cream put up, you possibly can skip over this part about black cocoa powder.

For individuals who don’t know, I’ve been dwelling in Germany for the previous 14 years, however I check my recipes with US manufacturers to be sure that we (as a result of most of you’re from the US) get the identical outcomes.

The issue with black cocoa powder is that there aren’t any manufacturers within the US that I can have shipped to Germany, and not one of the manufacturers now we have right here might be purchased within the US.

For the European readers, I examined my black cocoa recipes with Van Houten Intense Deep Black Cocoa, which is now known as Noir Intense and is offered below the model Cacao Barry. Every little thing I’ve made has come out completely with it.

My photographer lives within the US, so for her, I learn a bunch of critiques on Amazon and picked the one with the most effective critiques and value. Most of them had been tied when it got here to the rankings, so I selected the most cost effective one (or, somewhat, the most cost effective on the time).

She used Trendy Mountain’s black cocoa powder within the cookies you see right here within the images. And so they regarded precisely like my Van Houten/Cacao Barry cookies.

However then she despatched me an image of my Black Ice Cream, asking if it was speculated to be brown.

Positively not. It’s speculated to be black! She then used black cocoa from The Cocoa Dealer, and the ice cream got here out black. Or very, very darkish gray and virtually black, however not jet black.

So if you wish to purchase black cocoa to make use of in another recipes, I’d advocate shopping for The Cocoa Dealer black cocoa to ensure that your ends in different recipes will come out black and never brown.


Black cocoa powder retains its black coloration throughout your digestive system.

Have you ever heard of the beet check? Must you not wish to eat beets, these cookies additionally work for testing functions. 😉

For those who’re questioning why on the planet I’m telling you this, it’s as a result of I don’t need anybody to panic and assume they’ve inner bleeding. As a result of that’s what you’ll discover for those who google the problem. No want for anybody to hurry to the physician/ER!

Gluten-free model

It is advisable to use a 1:1 gluten-free baking mix that’s meant as a direct sub for all-purpose flour. So meaning no oat flour, almond flour, coconut flour, and so forth.

King Arthur Flour Gluten-free Measure for Measure Flour was my favourite in these cookies. Bob’s Crimson Mill Gluten-free 1:1 Baking Flour additionally labored, however the texture was higher with KAF.

I don’t know if different manufacturers will work as nicely as a result of I haven’t tried them.

Can I take advantage of coconut sugar or one other sweetener?

Sure to coconut sugar, however the taste of the coconut sugar takes away from the Oreo taste.

I most popular them with granulated and brown sugar, but when you need to use coconut sugar, I believe you’ll nonetheless be fairly pleased with the consequence.

I haven’t tried another sweeteners, however I don’t advocate liquid ones like maple syrup because the wet-to-liquid proportions can be off.

Since this recipe makes use of common flour and never a grain-free one, I didn’t attempt any keto sweeteners right here. However for those who do, please let me know the way it works out!

Sweet eyeballs

For those who don’t just like the components in store-bought sweet eyeballs otherwise you’re vegan, you might want to make your individual. Wilton sweet eyeballs aren’t vegan. Sadly, there aren’t any vegan sweet eyeballs you could purchase.

However you can also make your individual! And what’s enjoyable about that’s you could make them in several sizes.

I’ve made just a few totally different vegan sweet eyeball recipes, with this one being my favourite.

The components are powdered sugar, cornstarch (or tapioca or arrowroot starch), vanilla, water and black cocoa. You have already got the black cocoa powder for the cookie recipe, so there’s nothing particular to purchase!

For those who take your time with them, you possibly can actually make them look good. However for those who rush, you’ll undoubtedly have sloppy-looking eyeballs.

It does take a while and a little bit of endurance, however you can also make them now, and so they’ll be good to go all via Halloween season.

Having sweet eyes opens up a variety of prospects in the case of Halloween treats! I’ve three extra recipes developing over the subsequent few weeks with them.

Different vegan Halloween recipes

After my final Halloween recipe, I acquired a reply to the publication from somebody that simply mentioned, “DON’T DO HALLOWEEN!” In all caps. And nothing else.

For those who don’t like Halloween or simply aren’t within the Halloween spirit but (or imagine it’s evil or no matter) and are aggravated by free Halloween recipes that I pay the publication supplier to ship you, I like to recommend unsubscribing till November.

Halloween is my favourite vacation and is the one one the place I can do actually enjoyable and artistic recipes, as all the lovable stuff for Thanksgiving and Christmas appears to require processed meals and/or meals coloring. Thanks. 🙂
