It's milk's favorite cookies turned raw, vegan, and much healthier! Plus, they're pretty, too, thanks to all-natural food coloring. Activated charcoal, spirulina, and golden algae create a gorgeous spectrum of colors, but feel free to get creative and make the fillings in your favorite color.

Raw Rainbow Oreos [Vegan, Gluten-Free]








For the Oreos:

  • 2 cups almonds
  • 1/2 cup pecans
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 1/2 cups soft dates
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • A pinch salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

For the Coconut Filling:

  • 3 tablespoons vegan yogurt
  • 3/4 cup coconut butter
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon tahini
  • Natural food coloring, if desired (see notes)


  1. First process all the ingredients for the cookies in a food processor.
  2. When you have a firm and sticky dough roll it out on a parchment paper to be about 1/4-inch thick. Cut out your cookies in your desired size.
  3. Either let the cookies sit in a refrigerator overnight for a soft version or put in dehydrator for at least 3 hours.
  4. In a blender combine all the icing ingredients.
  5. Separate and dye if you want to (see my note)
  6. Fill two cookies with about 1/3-inch thick layer, depending on your cookie size.


If you want colorul Oreos, use charcoal for black, golden algae for yellow, and homemade spirulina for blue.
