This gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free, egg-free Oreo Pie is SO dang easy to make! It takes only 5 ingredients and 15 minutes prep yet delivers big on taste and presentation. That’s what we call WINNING people!
I totally grew up loving on the Oreo dessert in a box (anyone else?!), as I loved all things Oreo. I’m thrilled that this one delivers a similar creamy delicious texture with more nutrient-dense ingredients, thanks to the NEW gluten-free Oreos. If you can’t find those near you, you can use any gluten-free chocolate sandwich type cookie, I included in the recipe how many cookies are needed. Though we don’t like them as much as the GF Oreos, we used to get the Glutino brand at Walmart that is GF/DF too.
My Oreo Pie required minimal work, just a little bit of blending and pouring. Also, it is flexible and can be made in a pie pan, springform pan, or 9×9 pan. Use what you have available.
The pie gets its thickness from gelatin that is easily just blended into the filling. I use simple/affordable plain gelatin packets from the Jello aisle, but there are some great grass-fed gelatin out there like from Vital Proteins.
A great treat for any gathering, family dinner, or just because it’s so easy!
- Gluten-free Oreos – No, regular Oreos are NOT gluten-free, but they do have a Gluten-free variety made by the Oreo brand now. Wahoo! I get mine at Walmart or Target. All Oreos are vegan, so dairy-free! You are also welcome to use an equal amount of another chocolate sandwich cookie that works for you. For a Paleo option, I recommend Simple Mills.
- Coconut Oil or Ghee – Measured after you melt it!
- Coconut creme – No, canned coconut creme is not the same as canned coconut milk. It’s higher in healthy fats and its ability to get solid. Make sure you are using canned coconut CREME or you will have a sad soupy mess. I prefer this one by Thai Kitchen that I find at Walmart. I don’t find the coconut flavor overpowering, but you can always add 1 teaspoon mint extract to the filling to mask the coconut.
- Honey – I can’t recommend a swap here, as the thickness of honey helps it hold together. But if you try one that works, drop it in the comment!
- Powdered Gelatin – You might not know this, but you can usually find unflavored gelatin packets in the Jell-O aisle! There are better sourced gelatin like from Vital Proteins, if you prefer, but the affordable store brand works for us!
- Vanilla – Pure vanilla extract is ideal, and also sometimes it’s dang pricey. Imitation vanilla extract works too!
Gluten-free Dairy-free Oreo Pie (with Paleo option!)
- 1 13.29 oz package Regular Gluten-free Oreos, about 33 cookies Use 2 boxes Simple Mills Chocolate Sandwich Cookies for Paleo
- 1/3 cup melted coconut oil or ghee
- 2 15oz can coconut cream, whole can at room temperature
- 1/3 cup honey
- 3 tablespoons powdered gelatin or 4 0.25 individual packets
- 1 teaspoon vanilla or mint, if making the mint variation
- 16 Gluten-Free Oreos Use 1 box Simple Mills Chocolate Sandwich Cookies for Paleo
- Dairy-free whipped cream and additional cookies + cookie crumbs for topping, if desired
- In food processor or blender, pulse the package of Oreos into fine crumbs. Add the melted coconut oil or ghee until well combined.
- Spread Oreo crumb mixture into a 9" pie tin, 9" springform pan, or 9x9 square cake pan. If using the cake pan, I found it easiest to first line it with parchment or foil sprayed with cooking oil for easy removal. Press the crumbs down firmly - I did this by placing a piece of parchment over it and then pushing down hard with my hand.
- Put in the fridge while you make the filling.
- In a food processor or blender, combine coconut creams, honey, gelatin, and vanilla. Blend until smooth. *If you have a high powered blender like a Vitamix, only blend at lower speeds or this will turn weirdly chunky and can't be fixed.
- Separately, in a resuable zip top bag, smash the remaining 16 Oreos. I don't recommend blending these into the creamy mixture, as it will result in a gray, bumpy texture that still tastes great but doesn't look as nice. We like these smashed into fairly large chunks.
- Gently stir the smashed Oreos into the creamy mixture. Pour on top of the crust and refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight. If you are in a rush, it's decently set at 1 hour, but will hold up much better after 4 hours. Top with coconut whipped cream and additional cookie crumbs and cookies, if desired (pictured)
- Refrigerate leftovers in the fridge for up to 1 week or freeze for up to 3 months.
Hi. Would it be ok to add green food coloring to the filling to make this for St Patrick’s day? Thanks!
That’s a brilliant idea! Yes, that would be so fun! You could even add a 1/2 teaspoon mint extract if you wanted to match the green look. Love it!
Where do you buy the GF Oreos? I’m planning on making this tonight for a friends birthday
I find them at Target, Walmart, and Winco locally to me. Hope that helps and it’s enjoyed!
I made this for a customer who is vegan and GF. I used agar agar powder and maple syrup, topped with coconut cream. It’s delicious. This recipe is a keeper for sure.
Wouldn’t the filling in the Oreos be dairy?
Hi! Oreos are actually vegan, so no dairy in them. Which means the GF Oreos are both gluten-free and dairy-free, wahoo!
This pie is delicious! It is almost too sweet though, would it help if I used only 1 can of the coconut cream. Or you said you use unsweetened coconut cream?
Yes, use unsweetened coconut cream, but you can add less honey if you want to decrease the sweetness. : )
We omit the honey all together and it’s still delicious!
Should I dissolve gelatinous in water before adding.?
No, no need on this one! You literally just toss it all into the blender and blend and then the gelatin will help it thicken in the fridge. Super easy!
Any idea what dairy products I could use in lieu of the coconut cream?
I don’t have a good substitute for the coconut cream for this one, unless you can do dairy and heavy whipped cream.
For the Oreo crust do you take the cream out of the cookies first?
No, I use the whole cookie! Hope you enjoy : )
Am I supposed to use unsweetened or sweetened coconut cream?
I use full fat unsweetened canned coconut cream 🙂. Thai Kitchen is my favorite brand.
Can I use canned coconut milk instead of coconut cream?
I haven’t tested it so hard to say. Coconut milk doesn’t have as high of fat content, so it wouldn’t be as thick and may not hold together. It would need more gelatin to counter that and I can’t say without testing how much. I wouldn’t recommend it.
While we tasted the coconut in the filling, the pie was great. Easy to make and fairly. Thank you for a great recipe that even our non allergen family loved.
I’m so happy it was enjoyed by all, thank you!
Can I use butter instead of coconut oil? No worries about dairy, just gluten and eggs.
Yes you could! It would be just an equal amount (1/3 cup) of melted butter (melted, then measured). Enjoy!
This looks great! Can’t wait to try it!! 😋
Love this idea but we tried it and it was too sweet. Gonna try it again without the honey. I’m hopeful!
