Fried Oreos are an incredibly popular and delicious snack. The delicious chocolatey Oreos covered in a batter and fried until crisp make it a treat that’s hard to resist. The ideal choice for making fried Oreos is a pancake mix, but what if you don’t have that on hand or want to try something else? Keep reading to learn how to make fried Oreos without pancake mix.

 

What are Fried Oreos?

Fried Oreos are a sweet snack made by deep-frying Oreo cookies in batter, resulting in a crunchy exterior and a gooey interior. This combination of textures makes for an indulgent and irresistible treat. Fried Oreos have become increasingly popular at fairs, festivals, carnivals, and other events. They are often served with ice cream or other toppings such as powdered sugar or chocolate sauce.

 

Can You Make Fried Oreos Without Pancake Mix?

The classic version of this treat is dipping Oreo cookies in pancake mix and deep-frying them until golden brown. But what if you don’t want to use a pancake mix or don’t have it available? You can make delicious fried Oreos without a pancake mix. All you have to do is think out of the box and include some creativity.

 

Substitute Ideas

If you are not using pancake mix, no problem. We have a few substitution ideas that work well. Here are a few for you to try:

  • Flour: Four is a great substitute for pancake mix when making fried Oreos. You can use all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, or any other type of flour to make a batter that coats the Oreos and gives them a crisp outer shell.
  • Gluten-free flour: For those who are gluten intolerant or prefer to eat gluten-free, there are several options for making fried Oreos without pancake mix. One option is to use gluten-free flour as a substitute for regular flour when making the batter.
  • Tempura mix: Tempura mix is another alternative to pancake mix when making fried Oreos. Dip each Oreo into the tempura mix before frying them in hot oil until golden brown on both sides. You will enjoy a sweet and savory flavor.
  • Breadcrumbs or cornflakes: If you don’t have any flour or tempura mix, you can use breadcrumbs or cornflakes as a substitute for pancake mix when making fried Oreos! Start by crushing up some breadcrumbs or cornflakes in a food processor or blender, so they are fine enough to coat the Oreos evenly when fried in hot oil. Don’t forget to dip the Oreos in an egg wash before coating them. This way, the coating will stick well.
  • Vegan: If you are looking for a vegan option, you can use almond or coconut flour and any non-dairy milk in the recipe below.

 

How to Store Fried Oreos

While fried Oreos are delicious and easy to make, proper storage is key for them to remain as tasty as possible. Here, we will discuss the best ways to store fried Oreos to keep them fresh and delicious.

  • When stored correctly, fried Oreos can be kept at room temperature for up to two days in an airtight container or zip-top bag. Storing your fried Oreos in this way will ensure that they maintain their crunchy texture and taste great when you’re ready to enjoy them.
  • You can also place them in the refrigerator, lasting for 5 days.
  • I don’t recommend freezing fried Oreos because they will become soggy when you thaw them, and the batter will fall apart. It won’t end well.
