No-Bake Peanut Butter Pie

Pin It!

I need to tell you something… and it’s pretty shocking.

You might want to sit down for this.

Peanut Butter Pie- no bake and secretly healthy!

There’s more to life than chocolate.

I didn’t believe it either, until I tried this rich and creamy no-bake peanut butter pie. It’ll only take one bite to convince you: There is life outside Planet Chocolate.

For my birthday every year, I usually have my favorite: Flourless Chocolate Fudge Pie.

However, this no-bake peanut butter pie was so good it forced me to make an exception. Technically, chocolate did still make an appearance at the party—in the crust and topping. Just because life exists outside of chocolate doesn’t mean we should pack our bags and move away forever. Please, let’s not go too crazy now.

No-Bake Peanut Butter Pie

Print This Recipe No ratings yet.


  • 1 cup peanut butter or allergy-friendly alternative (230g) 
  • 3 medium bananas (300g) (Here is a Banana Free Version)
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp salt, plus pinch more if using unsalted pb
  • 1/4 cup virgin coconut oil, melted (Can sub with 1/4 cup extra pb; the texture will just change) (50g)
  • stevia extract to taste, or 3-4 tbsp powdered sugar, or pure maple syrup
Total Time: 10m
Yield: 1 pie


Blend everything together very, very well. (I used a Vita-mix for this.) Pour into a prepared pie crust or springform pan–this pie can easily be crustless!–and freeze until firm. (If not using the coconut oil, just chill in the fridge instead.) Pie should be kept cold; I keep it in the freezer. Just thaw before eating, and the mousse-like texture will come right back! If you want a deeper-dish pie, use: 1 1/2 c peanut butter, 4 1/2 bananas, 1 tbsp vanilla, a little over 1/8 tsp salt, 1/4c plus 2 tbsp coconut oil, and stevia to taste or 5 tbsp powdered sugar.

I got to eat the no-bake peanut butter pie with two of my favorite people– my mom and my roommate, Emily. (The blue apron was a present from Emily. Thank you!!)

vegan cake

Really, I didn’t miss the chocolate one bit. So you know it must have been good!

Is there a special dessert that you always eat on your birthday?

In my family, we have this cake called Maple Chiffon Cake, and pretty much all of my relatives have that cake on their birthdays– uncles, aunts, mom, dad, sister… just not me. Even as a little kid, I wasn’t interested if it wasn’t chocolate! And I prefer pie to cake, so I’ve had a lot of chocolate pie birthdays. It never gets old.

  1. I always have some kind of cake on my birthday. This recipe is fabulous!

    As soon as I am able to eat nut butter again, I am making this cake!! What do you think would be the second best nut butter to use besides peanut butter (I know pb is not really “nut”… but still)? I’m allergic to pb and want to make this pie as best as possible.

    Thanks :)

    1. I’ve subbed sunflower seed butter in lots of her recipes, always successfully! The brand that I buy is already sweetened, though you’d probably want to adjust the stevia.

      1. Jamie says:

        i sub with almond butter a lot!

      2. Thanks, let me know if you try it and it works out!

      3. Thanks for the suggestion!

      4. kendra says:

        I love almond butter too!

    2. daviscajoan says:

      When I saw this recipe this morning it looked so good. I didn’t have any peanut butter on hand so I used Blue Diamond Almond Butter (made of almonds and sea salt only). I also, used the pie crust recipe for a few days ago, that is only graham crackers and milk. I just tried it and it is amazing, so tasty!!

    3. Nikki Kratzer says:

      soybutter is my go to sub –it is affordable and readily available at walmart

    4. Anonymous says:

      Use sunbutter.

  2. Liz says:

    That first picture of the pie is the most gorgeous and delicious thing I’ve EVER seen, on a blog or in real life.

    And girl, you have Kate Middleton hair! It’s beautiful :).

    1. Jamie says:

      The post where she said she uses Desert Essence Coconut shampoo and conditioner changed my life. It is the best stuff ever.

      1. Keri says:

        Me too! Love that stuff!!

      2. Anonymous says:

        My most favorite hair product ever

  3. Rachel says:

    Wow.. that first picture looks delicious! And I agree … your hair looks great! 😀

  4. Val says:

    Happy belated birthday, Katie!

    I’m going to try subbing tofu for the bananas. I’ll let you know how it comes out!

    1. Dana says:

      Hi Val. Were you able to make the pie using tofu instead of bananas? I’ve been wanting to try it, but I wanted to wait and see if someone else did first and if they had any luck with it.

      1. Julie says:

        Me too…allergic to bananas, unfortunately.

    2. Tina says:

      How did using tofu turn out? What kind of tofu and how much did you use? I would like to try upping the protein content a bit and lowering the carbs so tofu is a great idea.

      1. Tammy says:

        in case you are still curious in 2015… Tofu works really well! It mixes well with bananas, which unfortunately doesn’t help you. Also great with citrus — have tried with limes and kumquats (kumquats are awesome). I just use standard firm (organic) tofu, pressed to remove extra water (just put a weighted pan on top of it and draining plate below). The tofu blends with most anything and takes on that flavour. It also has a good bit of structure, so no need for coconut fat, etc. Also great for pudding/mousse, super with prunes and chocolate… yum. Have fun experimenting!!

  5. Love, love all things peanut butter – and it looks like you still managed some chocolate drizzle on there for garnish :) Although I have to say I’m intrigued by all things maple too. Is that recipe a family secret or one you’d share?? 😀

    1. I don’t actually have the recipe. (It’s probably in one of my mom’s recipe files at her house.) But just writing about it made me think that maybe I should try to veganize it and come up with my own recipe… or at least for the frosting, which I think is everyone’s favorite part of the cake anyway ;).

  6. Alanna says:

    OMG, this sounds amazing… so good, in fact, that I’m not the least bit disappointed it wasn’t caramel. 😉 Hope you had a fantastic birthday!

  7. Sarah the official CCK drooler @RomneyRyan2012 says:

    At my house (currently) everyone wants a pink strawberry cake… except for my dad- cuz ya know that’d be just AWKWARD. But this looks REALLY good- and good timing since my pb&choco crazy sister’s bday is next week. She’s gluten free now so I was worried on what to make her since it was always a pb and chocolate layer cake for her. You kinda read minds, I guess.
    But the doctor said she couldn’t have chocolate any more. And she cried.
    And then she said “what the heck? I’m gonna have my chocolate if it’s the last damn thing I do.”
    You know I love my sister.
    In other news, it looks like your “diet” is working and you’re gaining weight! So happy for you Katie! And happy belated twenty something birthday!

  8. Rena says:

    Does it have a banana taste?

    1. Hmmm… I don’t think so, but I don’t mind the taste of bananas so maybe I wouldn’t notice if it did have a slight banana flavor.

      1. HilJo says:

        It is really yummy, but to me it definitely has a banana flavor. Not the dominant by any means, but if it is a flavor you are sensitive to you would probably pick up on it!

      2. Andria says:

        We didn’t care for this because the banana flavor was overwhelming and I thought it would taste more like peanut butter. I like banana’s but the flavor of the banana’s ruined this for us and no one in my family of five liked it. Sorry.

      3. MarieRoxanne says:

        Maybe use less bananas and more nut butter?1

      4. Amy says:

        Oh, and because I used coconut butter I did not use any coconut oil.

    2. Roberta says:

      I would say yes…you can taste the banana…and the coconut seriously. Don’t think it’s going to taste like grocery store PB pie….BUT…we don’t make Katie’s recipes because we like the triple-the-fat-and-calories-grocery-story-PB pie! :-)

  9. Looking DELICIOUS!!!! …….Glad you got to share this with two of your favorite people! Isn’t it wonderful to live with a good friend- a good roommate is such a blessing!

  10. “There’s more to life than chocolate”

    I don’t believe your lies.

  11. When I first the say the picture on this page my eyes got really wide and I was thinking, “Oh. My. Gosh. I know what lunch is!” 😉 Seriously, this looks amazing!

    I went through a Pilllsbury Funfetti cake phase, and then a cookie cake phase, and know I’m thinking about pie constantly. My birthday’s in about a month so this looks just perfect!

  12. Honeybird says:

    Lol, I was so curious about your birthday cake!
    I’m thinking of a new one every year for my birthday (Today is my birthday!!).
    My sister always wants the store-bought cherry pie.
    And I wish you a Happy belated Birthday !!

  13. Suzie says:

    Yum, that looks so decadent, too bad I have allergies to nuts :/ but maybe I can sub in for something else… I’ve got some ideas :) thanks for recipe!

    1. melissa says:

      I made a frozen pie just this week by simply blending up bananas with peaches, and then adding a second layer of blended up blueberries. I think you could blend most any fruit with the bananas, and have fun with layers for even more effect, and not go wrong.

  14. Kendra says:

    Wow, that pie looks stunningly delicious!!! I will definitely have to put it on my “to-bake” list:) Though I suppose it isn’t really “baked” at all…Oh well, it still looks fantastic! On another related note, I recently made your raw peanut butter/chocolate/coconut butter fudge, and it was SO DELICIOUS!! Sorry for the excess capital letters, but it truly was amazing:P I finally got some coconut butter from an Artisana review package, and your fudge was the first thing I wanted to make with it. I used almond butter instead of peanut butter, but it was still great. I bet it would taste somewhat similar to this delicious looking pie–though without chocolate, of course:)

  15. Kim says:

    Funny that you mention maple chiffon cake, that was ALWAYS what my dad wanted for his birthday, maple chiffon cake with brown sugar icing! I just always like chocolate cake, or ice cream cake, or I think I may have to try the chocolate pie thing next year because I LOVE chocolate pie as well!!

  16. Julie says:

    I wasn’t interested in cakes as I usually was more attracted to my presents on my birthday ! Is that weird ?? Anyway, now I understand why I wasn’t interested in it as I couldn’t eat it because of my diabete… However, I changed my mind when I started eating and cooking vegan a few years after. I realized then I could enjoy sugar-free vegan desserts without feeling deprived ! My favorite desserts are raw cheesecakes made with chocolate, coconut and peanut butter !!!
    I really love your dessert. I’m pretty sure you appreciated every single bite ! Hope your mom and your friend liked it too !!!

  17. Aja says:

    I want to make this pie for my birthday!

  18. So fun! Gotta love an easy pie like this!

  19. Ed says:

    Could you do it without bananas? Would you have to replace it with anything?

    1. See the nutritional info link ;).

  20. Rachel Ngom says:

    this looks SO GOOD!!! i LOVE peanut butter…easily my favorite food. thanks for the recipe, i love your blog!!!

  21. Sarah says:

    Happy Birthday, Katie! :) This looks so yummy–I think I’ll have to make it for my UNbirthday! Hehe :)

  22. Your new apron is so cute! And this peanut butter pie looks super delicious. For my birthday I usually make chocolate cake with loads of butter frosting on top!

  23. We eat cake & there’s ALWAYS ice cream. Not a birthday without those two!

  24. Your new apron is super cute! (and the peanut butter pie looks completely decadent. yum!)

  25. Lauren says:

    Happy belated birthday Katie! Peanut butter is definitely chocolate’s BFF, so you’ve got the best of both worlds here! I used to buy a vanilla (yes vanilla, can I still comment here? :-)) cake on my birthday, but now I prefer to make my own treat!

  26. Katy says:

    OMG!!! Katie you should totally try making this with dark chocolate dreams pb…amazing!

    1. I think that might be the best idea ever! :)

    2. Shade Ibe (@OneVeganFatty on IG) says:

      OMG! I just bought some yesterday…great, fantastic, wonderful IDEA!

  27. Sydney says:

    Best looking dessert ever!

  28. Jamie says:

    Happy (late) Birthday! This looks amazing. As always. :)

  29. Em says:

    Hi Katie,

    Any chance you could post the recipe amounts in metric measurements as well as the US cups, i.e. grams, millilitres etc. I love your blog – as I’m sure many outside the US do – but have had a few recipe disasters because I figured out the cup conversion wrong!



    1. They’re actually already listed.

  30. Laura M says:

    I had a feeling that if the dessert wasn’t chocolate, it had to be pb! My family would always make a special ice cream cake with layers of peppermint ice cream, Oreos and chocolate syrup. It’s soooooo sweet, but as a kid I loved it!

  31. I totally have all of these ingredients in my house as we speak! I know whats for dessert tonight :)

  32. Kelsey says:

    Oh my word! I need to make this ASAP! This looks so delicious :)

  33. Missy says:

    That looks amazing! I absolutely love how there are minimal ingredients in this. It makes life a while lot easier and definitely am more likely to actually have the stuff around the house. I might try adding cinnamon and frozen blueberries to the mix. OM NOM NOM!!!

    Happy belated birthday! :)

  34. That looks delicious, I hope you had a great birthday! And I don’t have a specific birthday treat, I don’t usually do much for my birthday! My mom stopped getting us cakes when I was probably 10… which is sad because cake is my favorite food! (okay, really just the icing…)

  35. Alaine says:

    You have done it again!!! This looks absolutely amazing! I am picking up my peanut butter right after work today

  36. Kit-Kat says:

    yummmmmmmmmm! That pie looks so good!!! 😀

  37. Yummy! I simply love everything peanut butter. And no bake is perfect 😉

  38. A whole peanut butter pie sounds like the best way to celebrate a birthday! Love how easy it is. Hope you had a great birthday!

  39. Jenica says:

    I knew it had to be peanut butter if it wasn’t chocolate! Looks super tasty.

  40. Laura says:

    The pie, and you, are both BEAUTIFUL!

  41. Lady Jennie says:

    This looks sooo good.

    And Happy Birthday. 😉

  42. Megan says:

    Uh, holly yum. I will be making this.

  43. katy sparrow says:

    zomg, going to the kitchen right now. bananas and pb rock the world and always will!

  44. Moni Meals says:

    This sounds absoultely perfect and scrumptious! I can NOT wait to try it! I agree, sometimes you can replace chocolate if you do it right!


  45. Sarah L says:

    Oh goodness, I was planning on saving that pb jar for later…

  46. Jessica says:

    This looks great! What is the crust on the bottom? I would love to make this tonight!!

    1. The crust recipe is linked under the second photo in the post :)

  47. Yum!.. peanut butter is one of my favorite foods ever.

  48. Alison says:

    This is life in a pie. I absolutely LOVE peanut butter and have been thinking of putting it into some sort of pie form and this looks like the perfect solution!! 😀 This could be dangerous. 😉

  49. carolyn says:

    I know you well…
    Looks delicious!

  50. K says:

    I’m generally not one to leave comments. I’m more of a silent follower :) But since I’m here and so amazed by your talent at developing healthy desserts that taste AH-MAZING!, I figure I’ll take full advantage. 1. You’re one of my favorite people :) I love that you are so kind and considerate and talented (and I love that you made this blogging thing a full-time gig). and 2. OhMy Awesome! This dessert is delicious. I used frozen bananas. Skipped the sugar. And, I may have eaten half of the filling before it got to the crust :-) . . . My recommendation: Make this! It’s DELISH! And I might add a couple tablespoons of cocoa powder next time in honor of you, CCK.

  51. This.looks.heavenly!!!
    Happy birthday for the other day!

  52. kaity says:

    happy late birthday! looks so goood, i make mine same recipe just a block of silken tofu and 1/4 maple syrup n its the best thing ever..no1 ever believe its vegan!

  53. Linda says:

    I just whipped together the peanut butter pie! I used my smallest springform pan (8″). The filling didn’t really fill too much of the pan. What size do you recommend? Should I have doubled it? This filling tastes amazing & I can hardly wait for it to set up!!! Also, I cannot comment on FB, why?? Thanks

    1. I used a regular sized springform… maybe 8in? But the crust took up some space as well. You can’t comment on fb? On the CC Diet facebook page? Uh oh, that’s weird! What error message are you getting?

  54. Pippa says:

    Does the nutritional info include the crust?

  55. Jaime says:

    I srsly love you. This looks delicious! What crust did you use? It looks like a date/chocolate/nut crust.

    1. Crust recipe is linked under the second photo in the post :)

      1. Jaime says:

        Totally missed that little link! Geez. Im getting old. :-/.

  56. Kelsey says:

    oh my gosh. that pie looks perfect.

    you look soo cute in the picture, too!

  57. Nixie says:

    Does the nutrition info include the crust? What crust did you use?

  58. Mich says:

    That pie looks as lovely as you do! Happy birthday!! I might have to request this pie for my bday that’s coming up…….

  59. Eileen says:

    Happy Belated Birthday, oh so sweet CCK! This looks so delicious! I of course loved chocolate cake with chocolate frosting and later in life with chocolate ganache, although I do like red velvet, it’s pretty and it does have cocoa in it :).

  60. I LOVE peanut butter!! & I love bananas. They are both very healthy ingredients. However, I am making this without stevia extract and just using regular sugar. Fake sweeteners or “natural” sweeteners scare me especially when they are 0 calories. Plus 15 cal/tsp is not going to hurt! The key is moderation!!

    1. katy sparrow says:

      You’re welcome to have your own principles about the sweeteners you use. But just to be clear, stevia is produced from a plant which has sweet-tasting leaves, just like sugar cane that has sweet tasting stalks. Though it has like 0 calories per packet, it’s not related to the 0 calorie artificial sweeteners like aspartame or sucralose.

      1. Diana says:

        yo, just to clarify though, stevia is not FDA approved as a food additive whereas aspartame and sucralose are. stevia is GRAS (generally regarded as safe, a term really means that it’s merely been grandfathered in), but it HAS NOT in fact undergone nearly as much stringent testing as have other non-nutritive sweeteners. people tend to think that because stevia “comes from a plant” and is “natural”, it’s safer than sweeteners that were discovered in a lab, but in reality it may be entirely the opposite.

      2. Anonymous says:

        The artificial sweeteners you mentioned are absolutely NOT safe for human or animal consumption. The FDA passes a lot of things as “safe” that are in fact not safe at all. If you are worried about specific sweeteners, natural or lab created, research it a bit.. Stevia has been used in other countries for over a thousand years to treat diabetes and other blood sugar issues and as a natural sweetener. That being said, it was used in it’s whole leaf form, not some sketchy white powder.

  61. Christy says:

    happy belated bay!!
    There’s life after chocolate? That doesn’t sound like much of a life really……ha! Kidding! Well kind of. Does it count if the thing I say I love to eat on my bay is anything I don’t have to cook? LOL!

  62. Natalyn says:

    Happy Birthday Katie!!!!

    This pie looks amazing – but then again, all your food does!!

    I hope you had tons of fun on your special day. Relax, take it easy, and enjoy life. :)

  63. This cakes looks absolutely to die for!! I usually have my mom make me one of her cherry cheesecakes; which I love…….but I may have to request this next year!!

  64. Eilish says:

    Katie, I don’t mean to offend you…but have you struggled with an ED in the past? Your just so thin. I had an ED around a year ago, and went to treatment twice. Or is it because of your diet limitations? You don’t have to answer:)

    This pie looks delicious, myself being a pb addict, I have to try this! And I tried out your single lady confetti cupcake, and it was yummy?

    1. Alanna says:

      Please see these links for the answers to your question:

      While I don’t believe you intended any harm, try to imagine how you would feel if a complete stranger suggested you were unhealthy in some way.

  65. April says:

    This was EXCELLENT, we just made this and just eat it out of the bowl with no crust! lol Thank you for hard work in creating excellent, healthy alternatives to our favorite desserts!

  66. OMG I WAS SO CLOSE! I knew it was gonna be something with peanut butter, I KNEW IT! hahahaha sorry, I got excited. Yes, this looks STUNNING and mouthwatering, Katie!

  67. Renee Allen says:

    This looks beyond wonderful, Katie! Thanks!

  68. alloyjane says:

    No but Opening Day is always around my birthday, so I go to Dodger’s Stadium. This year it hit right on it! It was an incredible birthday full of an absurd amount of junk food from BabyCakes, absolute ridiculousness from my family, and the usual Opening Day win. I can’t wait to get coconut oil so I can try this recipe. Will be making the brownie one tonight!

  69. Oh wow! This looks so good! I need to try it asap!
    Check out my latest recipe, review & giveaway @ Baking Blissful

  70. Jun says:

    Your roommate is lucky. That’s all I can say.

  71. holly says:

    Wow, that looks great.
    I have some coconut oil needing to be used up, and this is the perfect solution.
    Could it be made with chocolate hazelnut butter?

  72. Looks like a great choice for a birthday dessert to me! My birthday is in February, and I still prefer ice cream to anything else. That will always be the #1 dessert in my book. Now pair that with a warm slice of berry cobbler, and that’s perfection….
    Sounds like you had a wonderful birthday- happy belated!

  73. What an amazing cake! I love peanut butetr and banana together!!!!

  74. Kaycee says:

    I can’t wait to try this! PB+ Banana+ Chocolate (planning on making a chocolate crust as well)= best combo ever 😀

  75. Sue says:

    Happy *belated* Birthday, Katie! This pie looks scrumptious. Will have to give it a try. My fave birthday treat is peach pie… mom’s peach pie to be specific!! I didn’t get one this year. I’m going to have to “remind” her that I need a Mom’s Peach Pie fix!!

  76. Marian says:

    I pinned this recipe right away! I’m pretty sure I pin your recipes the most! Can’t wait to try it.

  77. I thought I was in an alternate universe…more to life than chocolate? Are you sure this is Chocolate Covered Katie?

    Kidding aside I do agree that the pie looks delicious and I know my husband would love for me to whip this up.

    Happy Belated Birthday!

  78. Ann says:

    Happy birthday Katie! Youve given many people (especially me!) the gift of hope, that there are many fab delish options even on a highly restrictive diet. I look forward to receiving each new recipe in my inbox!
    And I made this pie as soon as I saw the post last night. It is so yum. I made a couple subs due to my dietary needs and it is still yum. Here’s what I did if it will help some others–I can’t really do sugars, even natural, so I cut out 2 bananas (used 1 very ripe med size), added 3oz extra firm silken tofu, stuck with stevia to sweeten (about 20 drops toffee flavor in addition to the powder you call for), added about 1/2 t maple extract to make up for missing flavor (and mine didn’t taste one bit banana-ish, for those readers not wanting banana flavor).
    I also made your chocolate crust as suggested. Then, since I love cold bite size portions, I used a pb cup mold and added a scant 1/2 t crust in each, pressed to stick it, filled up the cups with pie filling (about 1 t) and froze. You could do this in ice cube trays as well (which I like to do with a lot of puddings, dips and smoothies) for small portions.
    Anyway, I could hardly stop licking the utensils…
    Thanks! Ann

  79. Verenique B says:

    how did you make the crust??
    and can you use honey at the liquid sweetner??
    want to make this soon please reply!!! :)

    1. Alanna says:

      The crust recipe is linked above under one of the photos. :)

  80. Kate says:

    Hey Katie, what size pan is this for? Also, add me to the list who would be excited for a maple recipe!

    1. It really depends on how deep you want it, and if you use crust. :)

  81. Suzanne says:

    PB AND bananas! Yum!

  82. Lauren says:

    Not sure if anyone has mentioned this, but your pie is COVERED in CHOCOLATE… so it really is appropriate for CHOCOLATE COVERED Katie, don’t you think??? :) It’s not like this is a chocolate free recipe! Anyway happy birthday!!!

  83. Sherri Nolan says:

    I am so glad that you started adding the WW points+ to your nutritional info. I am looking forward to trying this recipe. It looks so delish. I sure wish we had a Whole Foods or Trader Joes here in East Texas. Can’t wait to visit Trader Joes I think they open this week in Plano area….can you say road trip???? lol Love your blog and your recipes.

  84. Yasmeen says:

    That pie looks delish! Can’t wait to try it.

    I typically eat gluten and refined sugar free, but for my birthday, I will indulge with Verden’s Beste Kake (Worlds BEST Cake!) My family is aware of my obsession with this cake and every time I go to Norway someone bakes it for me. :)

  85. Tara says:

    YUM! Katie, your food always looks delicious and tasty :) I can’t wait to try this recipe!

  86. A.C. says:

    oh man does that look tasty! excuse me while my mouth waters (*wipes off drool*).

  87. YUM. This looks absolutely scrumptious. Can’t wait to try it. Probably one of my top three posts that you have posted so far!!!!!! :)

  88. Jenn says:

    I totally respect you for saying that there is life outside of chocolate. That took serious chutzpah. Its a good thing I was already sitting down, or I would have plotzed. 😉

    I ADORE peanut butter. I feel terrible for people with peanut allergies and I cannot understand how they function.

    Anyway…just wanted to say, I adore you Katie! You rock. :)

  89. Kathryne says:

    I just made this sans crust- it was delicious, and a great way to use up bananas that were on their last leg. My roommates were raving that it tasted like peanut butter fudge!

  90. Looks delicious. Happy birthday!

  91. I’m so jealous of your hair!!!!!! And I love this pie recipe! My birthday cake of choice is normally a cookie cake :)

    Just wondering, do you use natural pb without sugar or regular pb? This pie looks amazing.


    1. I usually use Whole Foods organic, which is just peanuts and a little salt. But regular (with sugar) would be fine in this recipe as well.

    First off, Happy Birthday! This is my first time visiting this blog, I am not a vegan or vegetarian and I’ve got to say that, I AM IN LOVE with your recipes! I’ve only read through a few and they seem so intriguing and are they ALL healthy? WhaaaaaaT?! I have subscribed and will be trying out a bunch of these recipes this week (once we get paid) and cannot wait! BTW you are beautiful! I was wondering if you could set up a ‘tips and tricks’ tab for the newbies like me. I’ve tried my hand at baking but don’t want to mess up any of these recipes and lose hope. If all goes well I will be testing these out on my children and husband. :)
    Thanks so much!

    1. Thank you, Ashley!

      I really do need to get my act together and make a “recipe troubleshooting” page. Thanks for the reminder! Hopefully I can have it up in the next few months.

  94. Bec says:

    I tried this today, with your ‘healthy chocolate pie crust’, I had the biggest sweet tooth craving. It is divine! Probably one of the best vegan deserts I’ve had. Thanks Katie

  95. Bek @ Crave says:

    Oh my this looks so good! And I guessed right- I knew it would be pb- that’s the good stuff 😉

  96. Britt says:

    I tried this completely frozen and thawed, I like it frozen the best! It was SOOOOO freaking delicious, just the right amount of rich and creamy, it is basically peanut butter dream come true. Katie thank you for posting this!!

    My last few birthday cakes have been fruit pizzas, love them!

  97. I’m having a hard time believing there’s life without chocolate, but this pie sure looks good!

  98. Hannah says:

    Happy Birthday! Anything peanut butter is always delicious but this looks especially amazing. The next birthday around here could use some tasty peanut butter concoction. Personally, I always indulge in some eclair cake on my birthday. It was a birthday staple in my house growing up.

  99. Kate says:

    Great pie. We subbed a bit as had to hold strong to chocolate roots and I put half PB and half Nutella in. No oil but a bit of coconut milk to thin. Then frozen and delicious. Thanks — delicious and “keeper” in my house of 5 kids.

  100. Chelan Shepherd says:

    Hi Katie,

    Did you place the ingredients in the VitaMix in the order they’re listed? I did and I had such a hard time getting everything to mix, even using the Tamper. It all ended up getting very hot because I ran it so long, and I still had some grainy bits on the layers that weren’t close to the blade.

    I’ve only had my VitaMix for a few months, so advice is welcome. Thanks!

    1. Put it all in at the same time. If the coconut oil is liquid, it shouldn’t have a problem at all. 😕

  101. Teresa says:

    Super Yum! Made this tonight and it was very good! Had to double the crust, I think my springform is larger. Didn’t double the pie, but probably would next time (or use a smaller pan) Delicious!

  102. Roberta says:

    Made this on Wednesday – and it turned out good!

    For anyone (like me) that doesnt’ have a VitaMix yet…I pureed the bananas in my food processor then added the other ingredients and processed until smooth.

    I lined a round cake pan with plastic wrap leaving the edges over the side of the pan for extraction, poured it into that and froze. Popped right out of the pan and ‘thawed’ to a nice texture!


    1. Heather says:

      Thanks for sharing as I’m planning on making this and wasn’t going to spend the $ on a springform!

  103. Charlotte says:

    I’m so excited! My pie is currently chilling in the freezer :]

    For those of you thinking about subbing the banana with applesauce, here’s what I did:
    I already had my crust made and my peanut butter in the food processor when I realized there were no bananas in the house! After panicking for about a minute, I checked the substitution page and subbed the three bananas for 1 and 1/2 cups all natural, no sugar added Mott’s applesauce. The texture looked fine, but the problem I found was that it was too sweet; that was even WITHOUT the 2 teaspoons of vanilla and stevia to taste. I ended up adding about 1/4 cup cocoa powder, which was enough to take the sweetness down, but not enough to overpower the flavor of the peanut butter.
    Of course, all tastebuds are different, so I’d check how yours tastes with applesauce before adding the cocoa powder/leaving out the sweeteners :]

    Fantastic recipe, Katie!! Can’t wait to chow down on some pie tonight!

  104. Kelsi says:

    I just made this, tasted the batter, delicious. Put it in a chocolate cookie crumb crust. Now I just have to wait for it to freeze a little. 😀

  105. sara says:

    Loving this! I love peanut butter-chocolate pie, and this one looks awesome!

  106. Karla says:

    I had some bananas that were getting ripe but didn’t feel like making banana bread and then remembered – I printed out this recipe! I made a graham cracker crumb crust (part melted butter, part almond milk), used natural PB & 3T rapadura sugar. I always like to taste the raw mixture, and you know when THAT tastes good, the final result will taste good. I don’t mind banana flavor, but I bet if you use less-ripe bananas more of the peanut butter flavor would come through, but I thought it was EXCELLENT (hubby and kiddos agreed). I used a springform pan so the final result was pretty thin, but still great. I topped it with a drizzle of homemade chocolate sauce and peanuts. I think a crushed pretzel crust would taste great with this, too.

  107. Karla says:

    PS – There’s never one dessert I’ve always had for my birthday, but it’s in October, and during my favorite season – Autumn – and I love all things Autumn-y. Including apple stuff and pumpkin stuff and maple stuff. There’s a restaurant we always had a tradition of going to for mine and my twin brother’s birthday every year; they had a little general store gift shop and we almost always got a little package of maple sugar candies. There’s a duck pond out front where you can feed the ducks, too, and it’s just fun. We get sticky pecan rolls with our meals and afterwards trek downstairs to the gift shop. We haven’t gone there for a few years but this year I want to go with two kids and share the experience with them.

  108. Karla says:

    Another PS – for the past few years I’ve gotten a small box of chocolate truffles on my birthday, always hemming and hawing over the flavors.

  109. Ria says:

    Hi i want to know with what oil can isubsttute coconut oil. What is stevia?

  110. Michelle B says:

    My husband hates anything that can be claimed “healthy” in regards to his sweets. Like seriously, anything I make he asks me what I did to it to make it healthier and sticks up his nose. But not on this one! In fact I made this for our 2 year wedding anniversary Saturday night and made a really fattening yummy apple pie on Sunday. He said that this peanut butter pie was his favorite and one of the best pies he had ever had. WOW! (He’s always said that apple pie is his favorite of all desserts too. So that is really saying something!) Thanks for such an awesome recipe yet again!

  111. Marie says:

    No Bake Peanut Butter Pie eating peanut butter and chocolate in a healthy way what more could one ask for. Now off to the kitchen to whip up this great pie. I also pinned it for all my pinterest followers to enjoy.

  112. Autumn says:

    I repinned the no bake peanut butter pie! love that pie and it can be done by an
    amateur! (ME) It’s a great recipe, and i used almond butter and the chocolate pie crust from your site :) Hope i win the Cuisinart! :)

  113. Heather Kitchen says:

    I repinned the Healthy peanut butter pie recipe to win the cuisinart (even though I PIN almost every recipe I receive through your e-mails so I can easily keep track of them!). It looks delicious! I can’t wait to make it.

  114. Pat Beckwith says:

    I get your daily e-mails and follow you on Pinterest. I just pinned your peanutbutter pie and chocolate brownies. I would love to have the Cuisinair Food Processor. I do not have a food processor and several of your recipes just don’t work well without it.

  115. Talia Retana says:

    I re-pinned this making this for my hubby’s birthday on Friday.

  116. Tina says:

    Gee, this peanut butter pie sounds to me like I could be in chocolate peanut butter HEAVEN!!! Got to make one right away, my taste buds are salivating!!!

  117. Lynnzi says:

    Can’t wait to try this! I have been re-pinning and baking my way through maternity leave! Love your site!

  118. Liz says:

    godly Katie. you had me at no-bake. ate it last week, tried it myself today.

  119. Anna says:

    You said to add more for a deeper dish pie…So is this the pie in the recipe or is this pie pictured a deep dish pie? :)

  120. Heather says:


    Just wanted to let you know that I used the recipe for this pie and your superfast pie crust last night, and I LOVE it. I subbed almond butter for peanut butter, and it tastes amazing. The almond butter combined with the bananas gives it an almost-cheesecake-flavor, which was very surprising. Kudos on this fabulous recipe. My dad (who does not at all care for nut butters + chocolate) tasted it, and raved about it. You’re a miracle-worker!

    I wish I could attach a pic of the pie I made, because I am just so darn proud of it. Keep up the good work, doll.

  121. Heather says:

    My son is turning 3 and we’re having a “Peanut Butter Party” for his birthday tomorrow. I typically like to try recipes before debuting them at a party, but just bought ingredients last minute. (I knew I could trust Katie’s recipes to be good anyway!) I made this in a 9″ round metal cake pan lined with saran wrap and used larabar as a crust (I don’t like coconut and couldn’t find GF alternative to graham crackers). I used the ingredient amounts for “deep dish” except I only used 2 bananas and subbed 1 1/4 c. Mott’s Original (sweetened because I had it on hand) for the rest. I did not add any sugar/stevia or other sweetener. I tasted it and decided to add an additional 3-4 T. peanut butter. The texture and flavor FAR surpassed what I expected. I took some on a spoon to my hubby to taste (who did not know the ingredients at all) and his response was, “That’s really good. Tastes like banana.” So, in response to those who are wondering if it’ll taste like banana: YES (unless maybe you used under-ripe rather than over-ripe bananas? but then it wouldn’t be as sweet). I think I’ll crumble some of the leftover lara bar on top with a few chopped peanuts for garnish since I don’t have any chocolate syrup. Overall, I am really impressed with this recipe- the ease and the outcome. I am excited for it to be my son’s 3rd birthday “cake”!

  122. cj says:

    Absolute perfection! The flavor and texture are fantastic. And this was a hit all around. I used spotty bananas and we could taste the banana – it was more peanut butter banana than peanut butter. I used a 10″ flan pan and made a double batch of the crust. I may try a chocolate cookie crust next time – or forgo the crust altogether and just eat the filling straight out of the bowl!!! Thank you Katie!!!

  123. Kelley says:

    I tried to half this recipe and accidentally used 2 bananas but I actually liked it better that way! I give it to my 4 year old frozen and he eats it like ice cream – he loves it. Thanks, Katie!

  124. Amber says:

    I’m wanting to try this, and nearly a dozen other recipes, but I’m hesitant about the coconut oil. I LOATHE coconut, I’ve tried the two different kinds of milk (canned and boxed) and I get naseous every time. So I was wondering if the coconut is really noticible? Does coconut oil give a coconut taste to all the recipes?

    1. I really don’t think it gives recipes a coconutty taste… then again, I might not notice since I don’t mind the taste of coconut. But in this particular recipe, I think you are safe because the peanut butter will mask the taste.

  125. Rebekah says:

    My birthday cake was usually angel food with whipped cream frosting and shaved chocolate. Not anymore, unless you can figure it out!!!

    My hubby and I love Reese’s. Must try. I made your crustless pumpkin for TGiving. It was very well received by my mixed group.

  126. Emily says:

    I was wondering, could I sub coconut butter for the coconut oil asked for? Also, if I decided to sub it with more pb like you suggest, in what way would the texture change exactly? Would it not be as good? :/

    1. Yes, you can sub coconut butter :). I wouldn’t sub it with more peanut butter, as it needs the coconut to freeze.

  127. Andrea says:

    I just made this…SOOO good! I didn’t have pb so made some using raw peanuts and some camelia oil. Didn’t make the crust, added the chocolate drizzle on top as well. AMAZING!! :) thanks for this recipe, will def be making it again in the very near future!

  128. kelly says:

    Hello! I am planning on making this but the coconut oil in my pantry is not virgin. Is that ok?

    1. I’ve never tried it with the refined, so I really don’t know.

  129. Katharina says:

    Dear oh dear, that looks so good. I’ve seen a few recipes by now and you are up there with my favourite foodblogs already =) Everything looks so yummy and you are so sweet (and gorgeous!).

  130. Kim says:

    Wow! This is an amazing dessert. I added Ghee instead of bananas and dates.. Too high in sugar…
    It was so yummy!!! I love this!!

  131. lindy says:

    argh….. this looks soooo amazing and I’m not sure what I did wrong but it didn’t turn out at all…. it never had the consistency to pour… it was more a big sticky globby ball … I still went with it but putting it in the fridge made it even worse… lol… the only thing I can think of is that I used fresh ground peanut butter with just peanuts, no added oils etc… perhaps this made it so thick? Others have tried it with great success so I will try again but oh so disappointed (not in you, but in me)

    did anyone else experience anything similar and figure out where it went wrong?

    …scatter joy…

  132. Mamiko says:

    This looks amazing! Do you happen to have a recipe to make this for a single serving? I want to make a couple of these in cupcake sizes for a picnic.

  133. Cindy says:

    If I made this crustless in a glass pie dish, then put in the fridge for a couple days, do you think it would set up fine?

    1. I don’t see why not… I’ve made a similar recipe for fudge. So I think it’d work :).

      1. Cindy says:

        I don’t have a Vita-Mix – should I use a food processor or blender? My guess is food processor?

  134. Debbe says:

    Shrimp is the one thing I always have for my birthday. And almost always Red Lobster is the place I’m treated to for my birthday dinner. Birthday person gets to choose where they want to eat out at, and that’s always my choice. Love Red Lobster for shrimp! Especially love to go there and pig out during Endless Shrimp days! I can put away some shrimp! We only go once, and it’s the one time when I let myself eat all I want, shrimp. I save the bread, salad, and sides for a different meal. That stuff can be another meal all on it’s own.

  135. sara says:

    Thi looks so good. I’m making it tomorrow night!

  136. Anonymous says:

    Just made the peanut butter pie….Soooo good! My kids loved it too!

  137. ngeffre says:

    I just did this the no crust way and i did not use the oil because I didn’t have any on hand so I used the additional peanut butter. It was amazing. I will definitely make this again.

  138. Christine says:

    What can you recommend in place of coconut oil that will still be a pleasant taste? (Don’t like the taste of coconut)

    1. Katie says:

      If you use refined coconut oil instead of virgin it will have no taste at all

  139. Kelly Dickinson says:

    Hi Katie,
    I made this last night with frozen bananas and put it in the food processor.
    It became the most delicious ice cream I’ve ever eaten!
    Thank you thank you!

  140. Mary says:

    After this recipe, you have my full attention for every single recipe you post, forever… I made the peanut butter pie filling and put it in some small bowls in the freezer to ‘test’, and it was gone in two days. After the first bite, it was all I could think of, lol.

    I used just a little raw organic honey for the sweetener since that’s about the only sweetener I use, and seldom that… and it was the best thing I’ve ever eaten! That coming from someone who’s been on a complete ‘no sugar’ diet for the past year and I’d tried all kinds of recipes to feel as if dessert life could go on, lol… This recipe is AWESOME! The bananas really do something to it, wouldn’t have imagined. Finally, something I can proudly serve with coffee to friends, and enjoy it WITH them!

  141. Melissa says:

    Just made this and it was awesome!!! Soooo good!!!

  142. This looks AMAZING! I love peanut butter and especially with chocolate, so I’ll be pinning this recipe to make once the weather warms up!

  143. Carli says:

    This recipe is pretty awesome! I love pb, bananas and chocolate, especially all together! :) I pretty much followed the recipe except I only had 2 large bananas (fairly ripe) so I increased the amount of peanut butter and it turned out great. I also used pure maple syrup as the sweetener which also worked great. For those who are not coconut lovers, I don’t taste the coconut oil at all. However, my husband and I both taste the banana, which we didn’t mind and actually kind of liked, but if you don’t like the flavor of bananas you might want to try a substitution or maybe use less ripe of bananas. All that being said, this recipe is hubby approved! Thanks Katie for the great recipes!!! I especially love that most are easy to convert to gluten free!

  144. Polly says:

    Hello Katie,
    This recipe sounds so good but I can’t leave well-enough alone! LOL!!! I had frozen bananas in the freezer (so long, they had begun to “sugar”!) I put (equivalent of) 4-6 dead ripe bananas into the food processor; blended until smooth then added the dry peanut butter, no oil (PB2), approx 4-5 heaping tbsp and some sweetener plus some vanilla. It was like a slush. So, instead of a peanut butter pie, I decided it was going to be popsicles. They turned out great! I can’t imagine how good they will be with the chocolate coating on them that I have seen you use! Thank you for the recipe and sorry I can’t leave anything alone! Lol!

  145. KSH says:

    Thanks for this recipe! I ran out into the kitchen and made it as soon as I saw it. :-)
    I used homemade PB (roasted peanuts ground up with a touch of oil – which without honey/salt is pretty bland) and all I could taste was the banana. My bananas weren’t even ripe. I am all for banana flavored things but not when I am expecting peanut butter. 😉 I ended up adding about 1/2c roasted/salted almonds and grinding those in using the pulse setting. So my PB fudge isn’t a silky as it was before the almonds but now at least it tastes nutty.

  146. Regina says:

    I would love to know what kind of crust used on this delicious looking peanut butter cake! I know what I’m asking my husband and kids to make me for Mother’s Day for sure

  147. Stephanie says:

    This is DELICIOUS! I followed the recipe exactly, using almond butter, in an Oreo pie crust. Divine! I will definitely be making this again, and next time maybe I’ll share! Thanks for the great recipe, Katie!

  148. Sisha Palacio says:

    I’ve made several desserts from this blog, but this might be a new favorite! And I’m chocoholic to the core (not vegan either)! I also have a serious sweet tooth so I used plenty of agave nectar (1/8 c plus a tbsp).I also increased the vanilla by about a teaspoon. My 3 bananas were a little on the small side- I didn’t find the flavor overwhelming at all. I did add some extra PB, maybe 1/4 c. We all really enjoyed it, thanks!!!

    1. Thank you so much for trying it :)

  149. Maryam says:

    Katie- can you PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let me hire you to be my personal cook and just let me bask in the heavenly, lofty world of delicious desserts. I cannot attempt a single recipe due to my lack of equipment/ irregular/expensive ingredients. ;(! Major sob! I read your recipes daily chewing my sugar-free mint gum furiously and cry myself to sleep dreaming of the goodies I’m deprived of. SOB.

  150. Elisabetta says:

    OMG Kate this is one of the best things I’ve ever eaten. Banana and peanut butter are 2 of the best foods ever. I had to control myself while blending not to eat the whole thing before putting it in the crust. It was extremely good already before letting it rest in the fridge and after it was amazing too. I was surprised by the consistence it got after!
    Wonderful job!

  151. Jen says:

    Call me impressed! I made this for my diabetic grandmother’s birthday, and it was absolutely delicious! I used the Reese’s fudge frosting and chocolate pie crust to accompany it, and the completed pie was quite the success. NOBODY could believe it was free of animal products and contained very little added sugar. And all of that only dirtying my food processor? This is my kind of genius. Thank you very much for this excellent recipe.

  152. Katerina lopez says:

    This looks amazing! Have you considered making cake pops?

    1. LOL it is like you read my mind. There is a batch on my counter right now ;). But the recipe still needs work.

  153. Corina says:

    On my moms birthday we often have German chocolate cake and on my dads we always have coconut cream pie.

  154. Meeka says:

    Our family birthday cake is Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Icing. YUM! This too, goes for all my extended family. Let me tell you… they are enjoying my making of your recipes!!! Thank you! QUESTION / REQUEST – Do you know how to make a good, sugar free, hard-ish caramel? I’ve never been a candy maker, and now that I want to start, I want it all healthy, so it’s a challenge for sure. And I can see that YOU LOVE A CHALLENGE!
    -Meeka from Texas

    1. I DO have a recipe… hopefully I can post it this month. But it is more the texture of caramel as opposed to the taste, and it does have maple syrup (so not sugar-free). I have another recipe involving dates, and it’s delicious… but it’s certainly not going to fool anyone that it’s real caramel.

  155. Gina Jacovelli says:

    Just wondering if the nutritional information on this Is for the pie without the crust or with? Looks delish thanks

  156. Elaine says:

    HEAVENLY!!!!! thank you sooo much! I had to try this when my grandson wasnt here at my house because he is allergic to peanut butter. and it was well worth it!!! thanks for sharing!!

  157. deborah says:

    made this with some substitutions and was very pleased. subbed pb2 for peanut butter, mori nu firm tofu for 2 bananas, reduced fat unsweetened coconut for nuts in crust as i had not a single nut (other than pb2 😉 in the house. i’m not super fond of a strong banana taste and this is perfect, the taste of bananas is scarcly present, just adds a nice sweetness. i did not add any stevia or anything like that. didn’t think it needed it.
    1 med banana
    300 g tofu
    6 -9 oz h20
    40 g coconut oil
    2tsp vanilla
    144 g pb2 plain

    1/2 c red fat coconut unsweet flakes
    10 g cocoa powder
    40 g yellow raisin
    55g pb2 plain
    3 oz h20 or Lil more
    Divide crust into 12 balls, press into 12 muffin tins (i lined each w/ parchment muffin paper) freeze few min
    then divide filling into 12 cups and freeze again!

    acc to my star charts: each individual pielet is 134 including crust, 100 without crust

    thanks again to katie for a superb recipe. i used to spend oodles of $$ for birthday cakes bought at whole foods and they were too horribly sweet and unhealthy. never again. my birthday is coming up, now to decide what to make…..i’m trying to make a new recipe almost every day now, it’s so fun!!!

  158. Emma says:

    I just made this and it was delicious! What a great recipe…I will most definitely be sharing this with friends and family! :)

  159. gail doyle says:

    I had to add a tiny amount of water to the mix because it was so thick . I wen t the extra peanutbutter routine because I did not have coconut oil and the liquid sweetener. Taste great just super hard to blind.

  160. lj says:

    i subbed the bananas for 1 block of morinu silken tofu and added a nice splash of maple syrup to sweeten it. i made it in my very cheap, very bad blender and everything turned out great! it was very stop and go (i had to stop and stir the batter because my blender makes airbubbles around the blades), but it turned out great with a little perseverance. i also threw in a handful of mixed nuts and cocoa nibs just before i transferred the mixture into a dish which gave it a nice occasional crunch. this was the final product

  161. Isabelle Mader says:

    Just made this pie. It was so easy to make and tasted like a decadent recipe. I still can’t believe how tastier and healthier it is. It’s a keeper!

  162. Jessica says:

    wow this truly works & is sooooo good! tastes fantastic soo yummy! my fav part is the crust oooo heaven! cant believe its healthy. x

  163. MLR says:

    Dearest Katie.
    A. loooooooooove ur blog!!

    B. I did the PB pie this week but was really bummed about the overwhelming taste of the bananas in it.What can I sub them for? both me and my hubby are not really banana fans and dont like the dominant taste of it in the pie…I tried adding some nuts to the mixture (I was all out of PB) and it helped a bit but it still has a strong banana flavour.

    C. the pie has a bitter-alcohol like taste which I don’t really care for.Dont remember if I used Stevia in it or not (omitting that next time!) but I also used honey and maybe date syrup (I was doing other baking too thats why I cant remember).

    Would love ur insight!

    btw-are all the pics here photoshopped…?

    Hi Katie,

    Do you think this pie will be ok making it 2 days in advance and keeping it in the freezer?


    1. Jessica says:

      Yes, I put mine in the freezer and it was still good 2 days later :)

  165. Jessica says:

    Katie!!!! I just made your healthy peanut butter pie and it was AMAZING! Sadly I had NO raisins around my house or pitted dates so I could not make your chocolate crust. I had to make an oreo pie crust instead. Anyways it turned out amazing and it was so good! :) Thank you!!!

  166. Natalie says:

    This is my go-to dessert every time I’m trying to impress someone with my vegan/gluten free “baking.” Everyone LOVES it. And it’s my favorite treat to put together because I look forward to licking the food processor bowl CLEAN after pouring the deliciousness in the cake pan, hehe :) Thank you so much for your amazing recipes!!

  167. Kayla says:

    What kind of crust would you recommend?

    1. Unofficial CCK Helper says:

      Try the crust recipe that is linked in this post.

  168. Marion says:

    This looks AMAZING. Which pie-crust did you use for the recipe? Thankyou :)

    1. Marion says:

      Nevermind, I just saw the link :)

  169. Dana Puddington says:

    Thank you for posting this. My kids LOVE peanut butter pie. But who am I kidding, I do too, only my recipe is “Death by Peanut Butter” rich. Now we can have our favorite, just a lot more healthy. I love your site.

  170. Megan says:

    Just made this last night for my hubby. Huge success. Thanks for sharing.

    Because it is bananas & peanut butter, might this also be a breakfast? Just sayin’. :)

  171. Jeanette says:

    My family is all about the chiffon cakes too. No one else ever knows what that is. Usually I get a blank look and ‘…sooo is that a sponge cake?’ Pff. Sponge cake sounds boring. My favourite was my mama’s chocolate chiffon cake with cooked brown sugar icing, mmm! My usual birthday request, these days, is an unbaked cherry cheesecake though!

  172. Julie Meek says:

    This looks really devine and now I’m a new subscriber! My husband will love it and it’s on my “to make” list for the next family get-together. I’d be curious how it would be with almond butter, but almond butter is so much thinner than peanut butter. I’ll make it as per the recipe first before experimenting.

  173. Amy says:

    Okay, my banana substitution: 6tbsp coconut butter, 1/2 cup cold water, about 1/2 cup of almond milk, stevia to taste, 1tbsp of vanilla extract. You must whip this in the mixer, not blender. This will turn out fluffy and creamy like the banana one. We loved the texture with banan but not the taste. I kept adding almond milk till it looked right. That’s why I said about 1/2 cup.

    What kind of peanut butter do you use? (Brand and type) I love your recipes but mine keep totaling a lot more calories than yours. I think it may be the type of peanut butter I am using. Do you use a low calorie kind?

  175. Talita says:

    Hi Katie

    I have made several of your recipes and loved them all, but this one….Oh My Word! It was out of this world! My mom and dad swear it’s the best vegan dessert they have ever had (including desserts at fancy vegan restaurants in London). I had to harness all self-control not to eat all the batter out of the food processor:)

    Keep up the good work! Thanks for sharing:)

    OHH!!!!!!!!! I’m gonna die!

  177. Sarah says:

    This was amazing! i was going to add the extra peanut butter cuz I wasn’t sure how deep the pie would be, but i’m glad i didn’t because it was already pretty rich. It was perfect! It was great with a mini reese’s cup on top :o)

  178. Oh wow! This sounds YUMMY! I am glad I found your blog. You have so many good recipes on here. I am subscribing so I don’t miss anything. :)

  179. Jaci Noggle says:

    I love love love your blog and all the wonderful recipes. Your blog is such an amazing source of encouragement for me. Unfortunately, I am morbidly obese partly because I love sweets, but your recipes sound amazing and a lot healthier than what I’m eating now. I can’t wait to try all your recipes and hopefully I won’t have to give up the sweets as I find ways to become a healthier eater (and shed some of this ugly weight as well). Thanks again and God bless you beyond measure

    1. Thank you so much, Jaci! And good luck!! :)

    hey Catie!
    how large does the springform has to be? thank you!

  181. Annie Hartman says:

    My DH and I live a low carb lifestyle…is there a way to substitute the bananas for another ingredient?

  182. Jane says:

    I just made this and oh my! Is it Good!! Only had 2 bananas & didn’t measure anything. Used just a tiny bit of maple syrup. Will add more coconut oil next time. You can’t taste it & it’s so good for your brain. I ate it like pudding but it would be wonderful served in a healthy crust. What a great use for overripe bananas. I will make this again & again. Super easy! Thanks, Katie!!

  183. Aisha Elmasri says:

    My best friend and I just made this tonight for our friends! We didn’t have any dates so we decided to just add in 2 tablespoons of coconut yogurt (we used macadamias for the nut option). It came out delicious!! Thanks Katie!!! <3

  184. Zuzka says:

    This looks delicious. I am thinking of making it for my birthday next week :). My question is: Couldn´t it just be chilled if using coconut oil? Coconut oil hardens at very low temperatures. Thanks for your reply!

  185. Jotika says:

    This pie is unbelievably delicious! I stumbled on this recipe when my husband accidentally picked up graham cracker crusts when I needed pie crusts for savory quiche. What were to do with two sweet crusts– make pie! Your recipe is so scrumptious we have made this pie three times in two weeks! The only other change we made besides the crust is add a layer of dark chocolate ganache and crushed peanuts on top. So delighted I found your recipe and blog !!!

    1. Thank you so much for making it! :)

  186. Ruby says:

    This looks so good.

  187. Pam Slice says:

    This pie is a big favorite in my house now. After trying the Black Magic Peanut Butter recipe, I decided to try blackstrap molasses as the sweetener in my latest peanut butter pie. SCORE! My husband declared it awesome, and I must always make it this way from now on.
    I am gluten intolerant and health conscious, so I’m a big fan of your recipes even thought I am not vegan. As a person who knows the awkwardness of a non-mainstream diet, I am also very happy to be able to accommodate my vegan friends when I make goodies. to share.

  188. Snowball says:

    My brother and I always have a Danish lagkage (layered cake) with whipped topping, chocolate topping, or marzipan on top. Just found your blog recently – looks so delicious. I am also into healthy cooking. :)

  189. Abby says:

    How long would it need to freeze until it is firm?

  190. Amy says:

    I made this the other day for easter and it was so easy and amazingly delicious!! I used almonds and walnuts for the base, and added a little bit of coconut oil as it seemed a bit too crumbly.
    Also I used 1/2 peanut butter 1/2 unhulled tahini and added agave nectar to make it sweeter and it worked perfectly!
    Only problem was I could’ve eaten it all in one go! haha

  191. Glenda Page says:

    Do you have a gluten-free recipe for German Choc Cake? My mother used to make the most delicious cake but she is not with us anymore and I would love to make one for my husband and family.
    Thanks, Glenda

  192. Em says:

    I made a gorgeous topping for this by heating honey til it caramalised and poured it over the top :-)

  193. Hi Katie!

    I was just looking around on Amazon at various cookbooks and I stumbled across this one:

    I recognized the pie picture on the front immediately as yours from this post and just wanted to let you know. Maybe you gave the author permission, but I would hate to see someone making money off of your work! :)

      1. Thanks :)
        Working to fix it. I can’t even tell you how much I appreciate you letting me know!

  194. Nat says:

    Does this pie taste banana-y at all? I don’t have a any of the replacements, but as long as it just tastes like peanut butter, I’ll use bananas. Thanks!

  195. Julie says:

    Hi Katie! I just love your blog and this recipe is SOOO good! I make it even lower carb without the crust I just spoon it into those no stick, rubbery (pyrex?) muffin pans, forgot what they are called but the soft ones, that bend, once frozen they just pop right out. This is so good that it is comparable to the snickers ice cream bars I was eating too much of. I don’t add any of the chocolate but it is still really good. And although I too LOVE chocolate with this recipe I don’t even miss it! Thanks! :)

  196. Vicki says:

    Very good and so easy. The whole family liked it and I’ll be making it again. Thank you for sharing.

  197. Beth says:

    I can’t beLIEVE those chocolate brownies that are masquerading on your site as “protein bars!” I processed the HECK outta those black beans, and the resulting texture was — I can’t believe I’m saying this — BETTER THAN “regular” brownies!!!!!

    Thank you! I’ll be trying more of your recipes, and with your blessing I’ll pin them all.

    You’re a genius!

  198. Joy Barker says:

  199. Kristen I says:

    I made this yesterday for my brother’s birthday, it was delicious! Thank you so much! I drizzled melted chocolate and put peanuts on the top before putting it in the freezer.

  200. Yum says:

    I love this idea! All i did was add super ripe bananas, peanut butter, vanilla, and a pinch of salt to get the most amazing pie!!!! No sugar, sweeteners, or extra oil added!

  201. Danielle says:

    Girl, you are doing a WONDERFUL thing here. Healthy desserts?? YES! And a no-bake peanut butter pie to boot?? All my favorite things! Can’t wait to give this a try. Thanks for posting!

  202. christine says:

    Love this recipe! I’m going to make it for Christmas, can I make it in advance and freeze it for a few days prior?

  203. Selah says:

    I just made two versions of this: one with regular PB and one with PB2, and both were DELICIOUS! My husband couldnt even tell the difference :)! If you do the PB2 version, make sure you mix the PB2 and the water first before putting it into the blender.

    1. Michelle Key says:

      I just made this using PB2! Love it. I bet the chocolate PB2 would be amazing in this recipe!

  204. Doğalgaz Tesisatı says:

    soybutter is my go to sub –it is affordable and readily available at walmart

  205. Becky says:

    Thank you for the banana free version, I LOVE them, but unfortunately I am allergic to them.

  206. Maura says:

    This looked so good, but I was yucked out by the possible banana taste in a peanutbutter pie, so I thought I’d try it in 1/3 portions.
    Oh, is it good. I tasted it, and yes, there was banana, so I added a scoop more of peanut butter, which didn’t ruin the texture, because as I poured in the warmed coconut oil in the spinning blender, it caused the texture to turn into an awesome mousse….sooo good. MMMMM, thanks. I still taste banana, but it’s muted in the peanut butter flavor.

  207. Michelle Key says:

    I’m making this using PB2. Instead of 190 calories and 16 grams of fat for 2 Tbsp of peanut butter it is only 45 calories and 1.5 grams of fat. Thank you for a great recipe!

  208. Ralph says:

    Katie, I tried the no-bake peanut butter pie on my family today. They loved it. Thanks! I also love reading your daily emails and cute comments about recipes. You have such a great attitude and such a fun outlook on things.

  209. Jenay Green says:

    Oh my, every picture is making my mouth water! I don’t have enough time in my day to try all these LOL. I have 4 boys ages 6 to 16 and finding healthy dessert recipes that they like has been a challenge, I believe I hit the jackpot with your blog! Thanks!

  210. Jane says:

    Just made this with my roommate. SO GOOD. And its actually super filling too!

  211. CC says:

    Maybe a silly question here, but do I measure the coconut oil before I melt it (like I would butter) ?

    1. Unofficial CCK Helper says:

      Best to measure after melted.

  212. kaytee says:

    Just made this and put it in the freezer. I ate a bit of the mixture (well, I had to wipe the bowl and spoon clean, right?) and it is heavenly! I’ve put it on a base made of ground almonds, dates and cocoa. Can’t wait until I can try the whole combination. I can eat this for breakfast, right??

    1. kaytee says:

      Mmmm it is lovely and a small piece is so filling!

  213. Lisa says:

    Recipes look fantastic. Can’t wait to try one. I appreciate your sharing them with us.

  214. Amy says:

    Will using thawed frozen bananas work ok or will it be too wet? I know it’ll all be frozen so maybe it won’t be an issue. I’ve made this before with fresh bananas and it was great. Going in for round 2. :)

    1. Logan says:

      I’ve tried frozen and it worked just fine!

  215. shannon says:

    I was reading some of the comments. Could you lessen the bananas and do Greek yogurt?

    1. Unofficial CCK Helper says:

      Why not just use the linked banana-free option in the recipe?

  216. Logan says:

    Hi katie.. I loooove this recipe and I use PB2 for the filling. Can you tell me if the nutrition info you use includes the crust?? It’d be really helpful to know. Thanks!!! PS – just bought your cookbook :)

  217. Colette says:

    Looks fab just wanted to know what is in the pie base ingredient wise is that low cal too and can you send details to me.



  218. Bev says:

    Hi Katie! I was just wondering what the base is to your peanut butter pie?

  219. Anything with Peanut Butter in is just fine with me :-) x

  220. Yum :-) Anything with Peanut Butter in is just fine with me! x

  221. Kyla says:

    THIS TASTE REALLY GOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  222. Barbara says:

    Looks great. Where is the recipe for the crust?

  223. Leilani Serfontein says:

    It looks yummy!

  224. Emma says:

    Do you have the recipe for the crust somewhere? It looks delicious.
