Raw ‘Oreos’ from The Colorful Kitchen

Ilene from The Colorful Kitchen is sharing her raw oreo recipe below! Looks fun, check it out! If you make it, let me know how it is in the comments below! :)


  • 1 cup oat flour
  • 8 pitted dates, soaked at least 30 minutes
  • ¼ cup cacao or cocoa powder
  • 2 tbs coconut oil
  • 2 tbs maple syrup
  • dash of salt
  • 1 cup cashews, soaked at least 4 hours
  • ¼ cup coconut butter
  • 2 tbs maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Prepare cookies by placing oat flour, dates, cacao powder, 2 tbs coconut oil, 2 tbs maple syrup and salt in blender or food processor. Blend until mostly smooth.
  2. On a clean surface (I use a piece of parchment paper) roll mixture out until it’s about ¼” thick. Use a circular cookie cutter to cut out cookies. Transfer cookies to a plate and place in freezer to set.
  3. Prepare filling by draining cashews and blending with coconut butter, 2 tbs maple syrup and vanilla until smooth.
  4. Remove cookies from freezer. Spread icing over cookies to create sandwiches. You may want to set them back in freezer for 15 minutes to set before enjoying. Store in refrigerator.
