Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Pie

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Pie

Imagine a pie that tastes like the filling of a Reeses Peanut Butter Cup and you’ll come pretty close to this no-bake chocolate peanut butter pie.

Dark chocolate, creamy peanut butter, and a secret healthy ingredient none of your guests will ever notice. Although there’s another recipe for no-bake peanut butter pie already on the blog, this time I wanted to create a pie even banana-haters can enjoy. You will find no banana, no flour, and no soy in today’s recipe.

But you will most definitely find chocolate.

Peanut Butter Pudding Pie

And peanut butter.

If you like Reeses, this peanut butter pie is a must-try!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Pie

  • 1 1/2 cups peanut butter, or allergy-friendly alternative (345g)
  • 2 cups thick plain or vanilla yogurt (I used 3 containers SoDelicious coconutmilk yogurt) (480g)
  • pure stevia to taste, or 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • Prepared pie crust or Healthy Chocolate Pie Crust
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder (10g)
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup, agave, or honey (strict vegans don’t use honey) (30g)
  • 2 tbsp melted virgin coconut oil (Alternatively, you can simply top the pie with melted chocolate chips.)(20g)

Blend first 5 ingredients until smooth. Pour into your prepared pie crust and chill one hour (or more). In a small dish, stir together the remaining ingredients until a smooth sauce is formed. Spread over the chilled pie and refrigerate until chocolate hardens.

    I saw this post and I got really sad, because it looked so good but (like many of your pie recipes) it probably used mori-nu tofu, which I don’t have easy access to.
    But then I read that there was no soy! Hallelujah!
    I will definitely be making this soon 🙂

  2. EVA says

    YES! So simple! Although a little too high in fats for my unfortunate gastrointestinal disorder, I’m sure this would be just as delicious cut into little mini circles and eaten like an actual Reese’s. With the pie crust, it’d be like a Reese’s-Oreo type of deal, both of which I haven’t eaten in years! BRING IT ON

    Also, I miss the banana.

  3. Alexa says

    I know you’re not a crust lover, and neither am I. Do you think this could go crust-less?
    Regardless, it looks spectacular. I was pumped it is soy-free, as well!

    • Dani says

      As is, not really. You can eat it as a mousse-type dessert, but it won’t stand up on it’s own as a pie. The texture is very similar to a cream pie. You can try adding a little xanthan gum to thicken it up.

    • emaliah82 says

      You can easily make it crustless if you keep it in the freezer. I did anyways WITH the crust because I like it that way…just let it warm up for a few minutes before eating. It didn’t get too frozen at all!

  4. Deanna says

    I’m drooling already! Peanut butter and chocolate are a match made in heaven 🙂 I love how you used yogurt. I’m so making this ASAP. Thanks for posting!

  5. Moi says

    Hey, I was just wondering… Which is the secret ingredient no one would guess? ‘Cause I don’t really see outrageous things in there. Just delicious ingredients and awesome pics, really.

  6. Kate says

    Thank you so much for this! I spotted a chocolate peanut butter cheesecake on another blog that looked so good but also soooooooo bad for you — this might satisfy my craving.

  7. Hanna says

    I made something really similar the other day, and let me tell you it went down pretty well, so I’m sure yours would too! I’d really like to give your version a go too.

  8. Steph says

    Oh, my goodness, that looks so good. Containing all of my favourite foods- peanut butter, dark choc and pie!
    It looks so rich and gooey- I wouldn’t have suspected the yoghurt!
    Thanks for another brilliant recipe 🙂

  9. carrie Kaabachi says

    Just made this with my kids & everyone rates it as “awesome”. I’m excited that NO ONE knew there was yogurt in it!! Awesome fact #2…no flour crust that’s choc full of healthy ingredients!! I didn’t have enough cashews so had to add 2 graham crackers and 1 pretzel rod, so I omitted the 1/8 tsp. Salt. Thank you for a delicious and super easy recipe! !

  10. Kim @ FITsique says

    This looks heavenly! I can’t wait to try! I made a version of your Raspberry Cobbler bar for Valentine’s day, except with mixed berries and I added some white chocolate chips. I thought that you would approve of that addition 😉

  11. Theresa says

    Looks so…. good! The recipe says pure stevia to taste. How much would you start out with?
    Thanks for all the time you spend trying out recipes for all of us.

  12. Juli says

    Katie, i like your recipes very much, but i have a question, i’ve already asked in another blog, because there seems to be a translation problem with us complicated germans… In Germany there are two different words for peanutbutter: ‘Erdnussmus’ is ground peanuts with a bit of salt and no other ingredients. ‘Erdnussbutter’ is ground peanuts with vegetable oil, sugar and salt. Which one do you use? Best wishes from germany

    • Maana says

      She means the “Erdnussmus”, because that’s the natural kind that is Food for you :). That’s the thong you should always buy, never buy the other kind.

  13. Janet Phad says

    I tried to sign up for recipes and it sent me to some google burner … I hate google … it just goes on and on and I don’t have time or patience for that.

  14. Alice @ Honestly Fitness says

    Mmmmm, this dessert combines the two things I love most in dessert!! Will definitely put this on my to-do list 🙂
    I was also wondering, do you have a healthy recipe for toffee? If not, I would love to see what you can do as toffee is a big love of mine!

  15. Molly says

    Can I use normal oil rather than coconut oil for the chocolate topping or will it affect the flavor? This looks delicious and my hubby will LOVE it!

  16. Audrey says

    Oh look, a personal-non-sharable-sized Reese’s Cup just for me. But alas, I dare not make it yet because my husband absolutely hates peanut butter and I’d be stuck eating the whole thing myself. It shall be my treat when I reach my goal of losing 30 pounds…and I’ll immediately go back in said diet the next day. ha!! (Seriously, though, can’t wait to try it!)

  17. Dani says

    It tastes like a traditional peanut butter pie, not really like a Reeses Cup. My mom loves Reeses but hates peanut butter pie and said this was inedible. I like peanut butter pie and thought it was pretty good.

  18. Gayle says

    Superb! I had most ingredients on hand so I picked up the dates for the pie crust and made this. Sooo delicious AND it might be healthy enough to have as a meal!! Thanks a million Katie!!

  19. Karin says

    I made this when I was home for the weekend. I put it in the fridge, and when I came back half an hour later, it was GONE!! My Dad, who probably loves sugar more than his kids, had eaten it all! I found him on the treadmill with a very bad conscience…. From the spoonful I tried while making it, this cake is delicious! I’ll make one just for myself today (and I’ll keep it locked up in a secret place!)! Thanks for all these inspiring recipes!! You make a healthy life worth living!
    A big hug from Cologne!

  20. Melanie says

    I made this pie last night. I was so excited when I found this recipe, but upon making it I was really disappointed. The filling did not set (and now that I look at the recipe with baking eyes and not excited eyes, there is absolutely no setting agent in your recipe) and slopped everywhere. I could not even cut it properly. Even though I let the pie sit for a day, hoping that it would thicken up, but I was mistaken. So utterly disappointed in this pie.

    • Karen G says

      So you are blaming the recipe even though there are other people who left comments on the exact same post saying it worked for them? It worked for me too. I was just coming on here to leave a comment about how much we loved this recipe! Maybe it was something you did wrong or an ingredient you changed? The peanut butter is the thickener in this recipe, and it should work fine to thicken it to cutting consistency.

      • emaliah82 says

        My pie set up just fine in the fridge and was plenty firm and not a sloppy mess at all. I decided I wanted it even firmer so put it in the freezer and then just let the pieces soften for a few minutes before eating. Fridge or freezer, it is DELISH! Make sure you use a good quality yogurt (I used a thick one with no added sugar) and I recommend Smucker’s Natural peanut butter without any added sugar. It’s all in the ingredients because this recipe ROCKS!!! 🙂

    • ioulia kornberg says

      It didn’t set for me either, but I didn’t care because I loved the way it tasted. Next time I will use vanilla Greek yogurt as it’s thicker than the watery organic lowfat vanilla yogurt I used.
      Also, my crust was crumbly but I think my dates were too dry. Next time will soften the dates so they get sticky or use homemade date paste.

      YUMMY as all get out!

  21. Bianca says

    Would any kind of peanut butter be fine for this recipe? All I have is homemade peanut butter, which is similar to natura peanut butter in texture. Sometimes it can’t be used in certain recipes… Thanks! 🙂

  22. emaliah82 says

    Made this recipe last week and it was AMAZING!!! I simply ADORE chocolate peanut butter pie and it completely hit the spot! There was a little extra filling that wouldn’t fit into the crust so I poured it into little heart ice cube trays/molds that I have and froze them. I am going to make sure there is extra filling next time and layer the molds with some of the chocolate coating on top. NUMMYLICIOUS!!!! 🙂 Definitely one of my new favorite recipes! THANK YOU Katie!!!! 🙂

  23. Stephanie says

    I made this with almond butter. Super yummy! I did make a mistake by not realizing that I had to bake the pre-made pie crust. So when I took the finished chilled pie out of the fridge, I had to then bake the whole pie! Whoops! Didn’t make a difference in flavor though. One thing I did was freeze the pie and it’s even yummier that way. Mmm mmm mmm!

  24. Susan says

    Just made this last night-the first of your recipes I’ve ever tried. I used vanilla coconut milk yogurt from Trader Joe’s and left out the sugar because it was already pretty sweet. So yummy! I can’t wait to have more today!

  25. Erin says

    I made this pie and it never hardened in the fridge. It turned into soup when I tried to cut a piece. How did yours keep it’s shape?

  26. Denise Stephens says

    I am vegan… powdered peanut butter and coconut milk allows me to make and eat the most incredible “cookies” and mouses.. with like coco powder, coconut milk, powdered peanut butter 85% less fat and real maple syrup. I cannot believe how great it is together.. blender, and BAM! heaven!

  27. Eve says

    Thank you Katie….for yet ANOTHER amazingly healthy yet sinfully delicious dessert! My daughter requested this for her 15th birthday dessert and it was so easy, so quick, and sooooo delish! You impress me every single day …..we are all so LUCKY to have YOU and your amazing recipes! I hope you are staying warm in DC, this has been a hellish winter here on the East Coast…..take care, Eve

  28. khadija says

    This looks so amazing, I am definetly giving this a try.
    However I am a little worried that the filling won’t set and be too liquid, well I am excited to see how it turns out anyway!
    Thanks for the recipe.

  29. ioulia kornberg says

    Hi Katie,

    Can you tell me if the nutrition information listed is just for the filling? Or is it for the filling and a pre-made crust? Or is it for the filling and the healthy chocolate pie crust? I just made it with your crust recipe and I was just wondering if I needed to add the two together.

  30. Nancy says

    1) Do you add extra sweetener if using plain yogurt? Vanilla yogurt is usually sweetened, but plain is not. Also, can greek yogurt be used?
    2) Have you ever used refined coconut oil instead of virgin in this recipe? I’m wondering if virgin oil would give it too much of a coconut flavor for the peanut butter.

  31. Chelsie says

    This is an awesome recipe! I used vanilla greek yogurt I think next time I’ll just use plain vanilla yogurt but this is so yummy!

  32. Kristy says

    Made this tonight. Was a bit skeptical about plain yogurt & peanut butter but it’s delicious & super rich. I’m not vegan so I used 2% plain Greek yogurt & added about 5 scoops of pure Stevia (1/16 tsp each). Used 10 dates but would use more next time as the crust crumbles a bit. A keeper!

  33. Sanne says

    Brought this cake to a friend of mine who loooves peanutbutter. She inhaled it, and so did my kids 😀
    Katie, you’re a genious!

  34. Mylene says

    I found this recipe and drooled a little and was going to share it on my Facebook cooking page, but can’t bring myself to do it.

    Honey is an animal product. It’s not that “strict vegans” don’t consume honey. Regular vegans don’t consume honey. If they do, they’re no more vegan than if they’d consumed dairy, eggs or animal flesh. It’s not a vegan option and our presenting it as such really confuses things.

      • Mylene says

        I saw that, thanks. That wasn’t my point. Honey was described as something “strict vegans” won’t eat. I was just pointing out that your ordinary ol’ garden variety of vegan won’t eat it, either, since it’s an animal product. Honey is no different from dairy, eggs, meat, et al.

        In the recipe FAQs, Katie states that all of her recipes are vegan, so it seemed to send out a confusing message to have honey listed as an option, since it’s not suitable for vegans.

  35. Elaine says

    I made this and froze it and it is like Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream Pie! Delicious! Also, wondering if you can make the healthy crust nut free by using oats and seeds? Anyone tried it?

  36. Jordyn Senger says

    This is my second time making this pie and I LOVE it! Peanut butter is definitely a favorite of mine, and I would sooner eat this than a Reese’s peanut butter cup! It’s so rich and delicious, you can’t even tell it’s healthy 🙂 My dad thought it was a peanut butter cheesecake, he was surprised when I told him it was just peanut butter and yogurt 😛

  37. Megan says

    I just made this pie. I couldn’t resist tasting the peanut butter mixture before putting it into the fridge….it was so good! I can’t wait to try it with the chocolate topping and your chocolate crust! 🙂 Thanks for the recipe!

  38. Kirsti says

    Wow. That’s all there really is to say about this recipe because it’s A-mazing! My boyfriend and parents couldn’t believe it’s vegan, and frankly, neither can I.
    I halved this recipe and instead of making it in to a pie I poured the filling in to small ramekins. It set no problem! I also used coconut yogurt (coyo brand) and melted vegan choc chips for the ganache bit. What a recipe. Thank you, Katie!

  39. Marni says

    I just made this as a Father’s Day treat – it’s setting up in the fridge right now. However, I did have to add double the amount of powdered sugar and more vanilla to try and lessen the tang of the yogurt. I used Chobani yogurt and 2 cups = four containers. …yikes! I also ran out of creamy peanut butter and had to use crunchy, but it all blended creamy. Unfortunately, I overheated my blender! I think I need a Vitamix 🙁 I used a Blendtec.

  40. Debbie says

    This is SO yummy! You are making a soft food diet bearable. Your web site should be given out to every patient who needs their jaw shut / a soft food diet for any length of time. This pie is truly delicious.

  41. Ashley Mendoza says

    This pie is DELICOUS!! It tastes better than the unhealthy version my family would make during the holidays. It was easier to make as well. I just love your recipes. 🙂

  42. Sam says

    Trying this today – and please realize that there are many of us out here that would LOVE to use bananas in our recipes but are deathly allergic to them. It’s so bad that I need epinephrine to breathe. And SO many healthy dessert recipes include bananas that we get really excited to find one WE can have! Thanks for this one – so eager to try it!

  43. Anna says

    I made this pie yesterday morning for breakfast (yes, breakfast) and it was delicious! the crust is a little different but I do like it 🙂 Thanks Katie!

  44. Hungry Heather says

    I wish this pie had turned out differently! I used plain dairy yogurt, which was probably my first mistake. Copious liquid & powder stevia could not get rid of that sour yogurt flavor. Also, I blended in my food processor, which may have liquified it too much. I tried adding some powdered sugar and even coconut oil to thicken it but could not mask that sour flavor!!! Maybe someday I’ll try this again with vanilla yogurt and a regular blender.

  45. ~Katie says

    I tried this on Mother’s Day, and everyone loved it! Mom said it was like something from a restaurant (even when I had to make some substitutions because we ran out of yogurt). And my little sister liked it so much, she requested it for her birthday cake! I may have even had some for breakfast one day (it *is* pretty healthy!). Thanks for the recipe!

  46. Hungry Heather says

    Made without the crust or chocolate topping. Even with tons of stevia I couldn’t get past that tangy yogurt flavor, so I mixed in a tub of sugar free cool whip. Much better! I probably should’ve used vanilla yogurt instead of plain.

  47. Gretchen says

    OMG!!!!!!!! BEST ‘non-cooked’ pie EVER!!!! Thank you Thank you Thank you!!!! I used NO refined sugar, only pure maple syrup (we make our own), Honey Vanilla Greek Yogurt, almond butter.. WONDERFUL!! & oh so filling!! LOL

  48. Samuel Leask says

    Just made this and it’s setting in the fridge!!! The filling tastes amazing and I CANNOT wait for it to be finished!!! Brilliant, brilliant recipe Katie!!!
    (I made it with your easy Chocolate Pie Crust)

  49. J says

    I have made this pie many, many times to rave reviews. It’s an extended family favorite that is often requested. I add chopped peanut butter cups in a ring around the edge too, for a little extra decorative effect. I’m an experienced home baker and have made many, many elaborate desserts, but nothing’s ever been loved as much as this pie. As far as I’m concerned, the secret is how ridiculously easy and quick it is to make. Finally leaving a comment after years of enjoyment. Thanks for this wonderful recipe.

  50. Gretchen says

    I scaled the recipe to 1/2 and put it in 6 ramekins for a quick dessert. I was afraid to make more cause I knew I would eat it all up. It was a hit, very rich, but very good.
