4-ingredient Paleo Mint or Peppermint Oreo Truffles - These easy, gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free no-bake treats are awesome for any occasion or party. They freeze great and can be made ahead of time as well!

A makeover of one of our all time favorites – Oreo Truffles. They used to be a go-to and I literally taught classes on how to make this delicious, fancy, yet EASY dessert (google it, it’s a thing ?)

So, I was determined this year to make a gluten-free dairy-free option. The original recipe called for a family sized package of Oreos, 8 oz of cream cheese and dipping chocolate. A few options – you can fairly easily find GF/DF Oreos or Glutino Chocolate Sandwich cookies – these won’t be paleo, but still fit the need for GF/DF. For even better ingredients, use Simple Mills crunchy double chocolate cookies. Now there’s ingredients I can get behind! So easy team! You can leave them straight up chocolate, or use mint or peppermint extract, depending on the season. These are easily made ahead and stored in the freezer for up to a few months.

One of our all-time faves and only 3-4 ingredients. Wahoo!

Paleo "Oreo" Truffles

Servings 30 truffles


  • 4 cups GF/DF chocoate sandwich cookie crumbs *see notes
  • 4 oz dairy-free cream cheese like Kitehill
  • 1 10oz package dairy-free chocolate or white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 teaspoon mint or peppermint extract optional


  • Put cookie crumbs and cream cheese in a food processor and extract, if using it. Pulse until mixture is combined and forms a large ball. Mixture should not be crumbly and hold together, but not be too sticky to form into balls. See notes if not the case.
  • Form small balls of cookie mixture (*a great part to let kids help with!) and place them on a tray sprayed with cooking spray to prevent sticking. Freeze until hard, 30 min-hour.
  • Remove from freezer. Melt chocolate chips in the microwave or on the stove. Dip each frozen cookie ball in the melted chocolate and place back on tray. We make this process easier by stabbing each frozen ball with a toothpick for dipping, then removing once placed on tray and covering up the hole with a small dab of melted chocolate.
  • Repeat with all frozen cookie balls. Top with decorative chocolate, nuts, or melted chocolate squiggles. Store in the freezer or fridge.


*If using GF/DF Oreos, use 1 package regular-stuffed Oreos + 4 oz DF cream cheese. This makes 24 truffles.
HOLIDAY VARIATION: To make my Peppermint Candy Cane Oreo Truffles, follow the above instructions, using the Oreo ration listed above, but use peppermint extract instead of mint and dip in white chocolate chips (I prefer these GF/DF ones from Walmart at only $3.44!). I melt the white chocolate chips on the stove over a low heat for best melting results. Sprinkle with crushed candy canes if desired. We love these Yum Earth candy canes. You can see a video of this on Instagram here!
For even more simple ingredients that are also Paleo, use Simple Mills Crunchy Double Chocolate cookies.
I put the cookie measurement in crumbs, as each box/brand of GF cookies will be different. So, smash them in a bag or pulse them to crumbs in your food processor/blender and then measure out the 4 cups of crumbs. If you end up with a different amount of crumbs with your cookie brand, it's 1 cup crumbs + 1 oz cream cheese (1:1 ratio).
If you have mixed the cream cheese and crumbs in the food processor and it's dry, add a little more cream cheese. If it's too moist (not clumping into a non-sticky ball), add more cookie crumbs.

    These are delicious, easy, cheap, decadent treats and with no dairy or gluten I can enjoy them without worry. Huge thank you to Autumn for finding ways to turn “normal” treats into DF/GF versions!

    These are the most delicious treats EVER! They’re creamy with just the right amount of crunch from the chocolate shell. 10/10!

    These are honestly SO decadent – everything a truffle should be! Creamy, soft, sweet, and incredibly satisfying. Autumn obviously spent time to get the recipe just right, like she does with everything she posts.

  6. Yum yum yum!! I can’t even describe how delicious these are (you just have to try them)! Can’t wait to make these for family and friends. They give the wow factor in both taste and design. I’m already imagining all the holiday-themed versions we can make and gift, if they make it out of my kitchen.

    I’m not an Oreo person. Or a truffle person. Or much of a dessert person, to be honest (don’t @ me). But these truffles are a household favorite. They’re the perfect bite-size, my son LOVES them, and they’re so easy to make, even with my lackluster baking skills. (Because there’s no baking!) These are a must-make for your next gathering, dinner party, or kid’s playdate… or for no reason at all, because for me, they’re always worth it.
