Vegan Peanut Butter Pie (no bake) recipe

I’m always looking for a delicious dessert to try out for special occasions or just because I really enjoy a good dessert.

This peanut butter pie has been calling my name for a while, and I decided it was time to bust out a no-bake dessert with the current heat wave we are in.

This vegan dessert will make people question that it’s vegan.

It’s super-rich; you only need a small slice to put you into a chocolate peanut butter heaven.

I brought this over to one of my favorite taste testers for the blog. They are the sweetest family of four, and they were just going to have a bite before dinner.

Then I got a text that the pie was gone and it was their new favorite dessert.

I love that this recipe doesn’t use any silken tofu or vegan cream cheese. 

The typical peanut butter pie has cream cheese and cool whip in the mix.

Although those things can make it a bit more light and fluffy, the fewer ingredients, the better.

Vegan Peanut Butter Pie Recipe Q&A

Can I use something other than an oreo crust?

If you prefer to use a chocolate cookie crust Annie’s Chocolate Bunnies are vegan and make a great chocolate crust base. 

You could also use chocolate graham crackers if that’s all you have.

You may need to use more vegan melted butter to get the other two to hold because the Oreo’s cream helps keep the crust together, but they will work.

Can I make a gluten-free version of this pie?

Yes, they now make gluten-free Oreos, and those will work great! 

Everything else is already gluten-free.

Can I use a different vegan whip cream than So delicious?

You can; that’s just my favorite. 

People often like to make their own whipping cream using coconut cream, which is fine.

I just haven’t worked on a recipe to my liking as of yet.

Can I make this without an electric mixer?

I have only ever used an electric mixer for this recipe; I feel like the whipping is necessary to mix the peanut butter and powdered sugar well.

You can use a stand-up mixer with the whisk attachment.

If you don’t have either, you can try whipping it with a whisk for a while, but I’m not 100% sure whether it will work.

Can I top this with chocolate?

If you want to make this more of a giant chocolate peanut butter cup, you can make a layer of vegan chocolate ganache.

I would mix 1 cup of vegan chocolate chips with 1/2 cup vegan milk and microwave for 30 seconds, then stir until melted.

Then pour over the top of the peanut butter pie and let harden in the fridge or freezer.

Can I use almond butter instead of peanut butter?

You can, but almond butter has a different consistency and will likely make the pie a bit denser. But it should taste delicious!

What’s the best way to decorate this pie?

I like to drizzle vegan chocolate syrup or melted chocolate chips if that’s all you have.

Drizzling a little bit of melted peanut butter makes for good drizzling.

I like to top mine with chopped-up vegan peanut butter cups, but that’s up to you. It’s not necessary, just a fun accent.

You could also add chopped peanuts if you wanted more of a crunch.
