How to relive your childhood: step one - grab a glass of milk. Step two - grab the Oreos. Step three - dunk and enjoy!
How to relive your childhood with a health twist:
Step one - grab the Real Mushrooms Chaga.
Step two - make these homemade, unprocessed paleo Oreo cookies.
Step three - enjoy in good immune, brain, digestive and skin health!
No matter if you were the kid who licked all the icing off first, dunked them whole in a glass of milk, or dipped them in peanut butter, the chocolatey, crunchy satisfaction of Oreo cookies is hard to beat. So we took all that satisfaction and put a Real Mushrooms health twist on it by using real food ingredients and adding Chaga Mushroom. Because we want you to be able to enjoy your Oreos and maintain good digestive (and skin!) health too!
So how do Oreos and health fit in the same sentence? First, we swap all the processed ingredients for healthy, whole-food ones. Next we add a big antioxidant punch. A punch that comes in the form of Chaga Mushroom.
Chaga is rich in antioxidants and not only supports your immune function, but it also aids your digestion and helps revitalize your skin (thanks to high amounts of melanin).
And as always, just like we don’t advocate for baking with a lot of overly processed foods with a bunch of unnecessary ingredients, we also would never offer processed mushroom extracts with a bunch of unnecessary starch and fillers.
We only offer 100% organic mushroom extracts, because we want you enjoying and experiencing the full health benefits of medicinal mushrooms.

- If you don’t want to use protein powder, you can replace the protein powder with almond flour and add 2-4 TB of your favorite granulated sweetener. Taste and adjust to your sweetness preference.
- If you are using unsweetened protein powder, add 2-4 TB of your favorite granulated sweetener. Taste and adjust to your sweetness preference.
It’s all too easy to get caught up in the seriousness of life. In the strict habits. In the “go, go, go” mentality. Too many things on the never-ending to-do list.
And with all that busyness, comes a whole lot of stress on your immune, brain, and digestive health.
So sometimes we all could use a reminder of our childhood, a reminder to invite a little more play, a little more silliness, and a little more freedom into our routine. It’s ok to not take life so seriously all the time. It’s ok to take breaks.
And it’s more than ok to enjoy some of these paleo Oreo cookies. In fact, we highly recommend it.
If you don’t want to use Chaga, you can easily try out another mushroom powder extract. There are wonderful options, each with their own unique profiles and benefits.
