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.

No-Bake / No-Sugar / Gluten-Free / Tastes like you are eating the filling of a Reeses peanut butter cup! Full recipe:

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 Creamy, dreamy, secretly good for you... from @choccoveredkt... recipe has over 15,000 repins!


No-Bake Peanut Butter Pie

With my Healthy Chocolate Pie Crust

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!!)

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. 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!

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

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

  4. 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!

  5. 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!

  6. Sydney says:

    Best looking dessert ever!

  7. Jamie says:

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

    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.

  9. 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!

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

  11. Kelsey says:

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

  12. 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! 🙂

  13. 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…)

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

  15. 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!

  16. Jenica says:

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

  17. Laura says:

    The pie, and you, are both BEAUTIFUL!

  18. Lady Jennie says:

    This looks sooo good.

    And Happy Birthday. 😉

  19. Megan says:

    Uh, holly yum. I will be making this.
