Though some of the food “holidays” are rather surprising (national mulled wine day, really?), it wasn’t too much of a shocker that there would be a day to honor the iconic American cookie classic, Oreos. Yes today is national Oreo day, and what better way to celebrate than with a fun way to enjoy them! We sourced this dairy-free Oreo cookie butter recipe from Meg of Speedbump Kitchen, a delightful dairy-, egg-, and nut-free food blog.

Special Diet Notes: Dairy-Free Oreo Cookie Butter

By ingredients, this recipe is dairy-free / non-dairy, egg-free, nut-free, peanut-free, vegan / plant-based, and vegetarian. Yes, believe it or not, Oreos are accidentally dairy-free and vegan (please verify the sugar source if you have strict vegan concerns)!

For gluten-free dairy-free Oreo cookie butter, use gluten-free + dairy-free chocolate sandwich cookies like KinniToos, Glutino, or Mi-Del.

For natural or organic dairy-free Oreo cookie butter, look for alternate brands like Newman’s Own and Country Choice. They aren’t healthy, but they are free of high fructose corn syrup and other undesirable ingredients found in Oreos. Don’t feel like you have to be brand loyal to enjoy this recipe – your favorite chocolate sandwich cookies should work deliciously!

Note that Oreos and most brands of chocolate sandwich cookies (even the organic ones) do contain soy lecithin, which may or may not be suitable for those with soy concerns.

You don't need a Vitamix, but feel free to use this recipe to justify a purchase. Blame me. I'm tough. You'll never, ever regret the purchase. Use whatever mix of oil you want. All coconut oil was too overpowering, but the melt-in-your-mouth texture of coconut oil is awesome in I went half coconut and half palm.
Serves: 36 "cookie" servings
  1. Place all ingredients in a food processor or high-speed blender, and blend until smooth. It takes a several minutes. Just keep scraping the sides down, it will eventually happen, I promise.
  2. The mixture will be warm and soupy after blending, but will firm up when it comes back to room temperature. If you're anxious, it can be chilled briefly to speed up the process.
  3. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.

    • You can try using all coconut oil or swapping in buttery spread, but the results may vary. Keep in mind that sandwich cookies are usually made with shortening, so if you are trying to avoid shortening altogether, this is not a good recipe for you.

  3. I have never thought about this before. Actually I didn’t know you could do this with Oreos! I know a certain little boy that would love this!! Thank you for sharing!

  4. Alisa,
    I was just chatting with a friend about school administration and food allergy woes, and learned that Oreos are dairy free. I’m so glad you’ve posted Meg’s recipe, so now I’ve got 2 links to share with my friend and her son!
    Thank you!

  5. oreos – the classic ones, not the new flavors or double stuffed – are an old favorite of mine. I rarely had them as a kid (my mom made everything, no packaged foods in the house!), but in college we always had them around, I think, and every now and then Jason will pick some up 🙂

    spreading this on a ritz cracker? genius!
