Coconut Hibiscus Oatmeal Cookie Cream Pies (Vegan & Low Carb)

Woah, that was a mouthful of a recipe name! But I didn't want to let any ingredient left out, this is why it was important to consider all the ingredients that make this recipe what it really is. Stay to learn more about this recipe, you are going to fall in love!


This recipe was inspired by the iconic oatmeal creme pies, probably the only way I used to eat oatmeal growing up what that way. Just a soft and gooey oatmeal cookie stuffed with all the sugary things, but in this occasion I'm creating my own, with a Mexican touch!



As I was whipping up the mix for the oatmeal cookie and digging into my patry for some ingredients I stumble into my stash of hibiscus tea and since I was already planning on adding coconut to the recipe I had the idea of adding a hibiscu tea infusion... guys, genius!


The iconic Oatmeal Creme Pie with a hint of tropical flavors such as hibiscus and coconut is what made this recipe absolutely epic, an explosion of flavors!



About these Coconut Hibiscus Oatmeal Cookie Cream Pies:

Well, even if this recipe was a bit improvised the taste is just amazing. I adventured with coconut oatmeal as a base combined with nut butter, this recipe is vegan and dairy free with a hint of Nuzest Vanilla Protein to add a little bit of volume and flavor to the cookies.



The filling is a creamy and flavorful blend of cashews with almond milk along with the hibiscus tea. I used five hibiscus tea bags to add the touch of flavor we want with the recipe along with the shredded coconut added on top.



Overall, these are the ingredients needed for these Coconut Hibiscus Oatmeal Cookie Cream Pies:



If you want to keep this recipe paleo or lower in carbs you can use coconut flour or a paleo granola instead of the sprouted oats. That's alway up to you, I find sprouted oats easier to digest so that's a win for me, I also used organic ones from the brand One Degree.


The full instructions will be below along with the nutritional information per serving. I have to mention that this cake is algo a good source of protein thanks to the greek yogurt, egg whites and some part from the almond flour.



Overall this recipe is:

  • Low Carb

  • Vegan

  • Meal Prep Friendly

  • Delicious!



The end result

Well, the combination of coconut and the creamy hibiscus filling is just amazing, a tropical trip in a single bite. Tasty but enough to notice the hint of those oatmeal creme pies, the base is flavorful and gooey once the recipe is done.



I enjoyed them straight up the freezer and I also left them a few minutes to be softer, that way you get an ice cream consistency that also makes this recipe absolutely delicious!
