Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

Fudgy, swirly, PEANUT BUTTERY chocolate peanut butter pie.

I should definitely start posting more pie recipes on this blog.

Give me pie over cake any day of the week – especially if it has chocolate and peanut butter. Chocolate pie is one of my favorite desserts; and you probably also know by now how I feel about peanut butter.

If you don’t, here are 120 Healthy Peanut Butter Recipes.

So yeah…

A lot of peanut butter recipes are on the blog, because I really love peanut butter. I can polish off a jar of peanut butter—always CRUNCHY peanut butter—in record time, and I still never seem to get tired of it.

In today’s recipe, peanut butter combines with chocolate to result in a no-bake pie where the hardest part of making it is keeping yourself from devouring all of the rich chocolate pie filling before it gets to the crust. If this happens to you and you suddenly realize there’s not enough filling for the crust, hopefully it will make you feel better to know I’ve encountered the same problem on more than one occasion.

If a situation like that ever arises, simply spoon the filling into fancy bowls, top with even more peanut butter, and call it a day!

Who needs crust anyway?

Alright, so if you happen to have more self-restraint than I do and can make it to the crust step with enough of the filling left, here are your options:

1. Use any favorite store-bought or homemade pie crust.

2. Make up and finely crush a batch of my homemade Healthy Oreos without the filling, and spread the crumbs on the bottom of the springform pan, for a homemade Oreo crust!

3. You can make this pie crustless if you want, as long as you use firm tofu instead of silken (there’s also a soy-free peanut butter pie recipe linked below). Or you can spoon the filling into ramekins or fancy bowls, as mentioned above.

Print This Recipe [mrp_rating_result show_count="false" show_rich_snippets="false"]


  • 12.3 oz silken or firm tofu (Soy-Free recipe here)
  • 1 1/2 tsp cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 cup chocolate chips, or 8-10 oz broken-up chocolate bars
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp milk of choice
  • scant 1/8 tsp salt
  • 2-3 tbsp pure maple syrup, other sweetener of choice, or stevia as desired
  • peanut butter, or allergy-friendly sub (can be omitted for a plain chocolate pie)


*I added 1/3 cup peanut butter before processing and decorated the pie with more on top after it was chilled. This pie gets firmer the longer it sits – it is firmer if you use firm tofu, or more of a mousse pie if you use soft tofu.

Carefully melt the chocolate, either on the stove or in the microwave. Process all ingredients in a food processor until completely smooth. Pour into a pie crust if desired (I list a few crust options earlier in the post). Refrigerate until firm.

    Ooh, this is gorgeous! I have a weird question: supposing you can’t have soy, and you don’t want a banana flavor in your pie. Would it be okay to use Greek yogurt and xantham gum or arrowroot powder to help it stabilize? Or agar agar (or just gelatin, if non-vegan)? Or would you recommend something else?

    • Jason Sanford says

      Although Katie can’t know how something she hasn’t tried will turn out, you can always experiment! Be sure to report back if you do.

      I’ve tried that and it ends up as a more pudding textured pie. Adding some corn starch and about 1/3 cup flax seeds firm it up better (presuming, of course, that you don’t hate flax seeds). Vegan cream cheese + corn starch is good too but that’s basically cheesecake.

  2. Kim says

    Something seems off in the nutrition facts. The sugar count is way too low considering it is 1.5 cups of dark chocolate chips!

    • Jason Sanford says

      Thank you so much for noticing this, and we are so sorry for the error. The online nutrition calculator Katie uses can sometimes give wildly inaccurate nutrition stats for certain ingredients (especially less generic ones such as vegan chocolate chips), which she tries to always watch, but somehow missed catching this one. When we just did it again using regular generic chocolate chips, the results absolutely do have more sugar… But they also actually have fewer calories! We are fixing the recipe right away and are really appreciative you pointed out the mistake. Thank you!

        Okay. So it is just this, right here (I just couldn’t be sure if it was in addition to more peanut butter, as this is not listed under the “ingredients” portion of the recipe (might want to add that in): “*I added 1/3 cup peanut butter before processing and decorated the pie with more on top after it was chilled.”. Correct? So one-third cup peanut butter, total.

  3. Kelley Divelbiss says

    Hi! I don’t know if you’ll even see this considering it’s a year later but I was hoping you could tell me what tofu brand and type you recommend or used. And by silken OR firm do you mean silken soft or silken firm or regular firm? I’m looking for a firm texture. Thank you in advanced if you can help.

  4. Vivian says

    Hi Katie,
    Thank you so much for this chocolate peanut butter pie recipe. My best friend and I are keen on sweet treats that contain peanut butter and chocolate. You could imagine we were very happy when we saw this post! We have always wanted to try to bake a cake with our favourite ingredients, but we hadn’t had the time to do so. Last night we stumbled across this post and we instantly knew that we had to try it. It was very easy to make and I like that the pie also contains tofu, because it is something that I try to consume more. It has been very fun to make and it’s definitely something I recommend doing with your friends. A huge bonus is that you don’t have to bake this cake, so you can immediately start to eat it when you’re done mixing the ingredients. I will definitely check out your other recipes too!

    Have a nice day,

    I made this with stevia/maple syrup, unsweetened cocoa powder, and a mix of peanut butter and PB2 and it was great!
    As made:
    13.5 oz container silken tofu
    2 tbsp + 1 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
    2 tbsp maple syrup
    3 tsp stevia
    1 tsp salt
    100 grams unsalted peanut butter
    1 tsp PB2 powder (for more peanut oomph)
    Combine all ingredients in food processor and blend until smooth. Taste and adjust at the halfway point of adding cocoa, stevia, and peanut butter before adding everything.
    Coarsely chop 2 full sheets of graham crackers and about 1.5 tbsp of roasted peanuts. Sprinkle on top.
    Calories for entire pan, as made: 1147. This makes 16 small or 12 generous squares, or filling for 1 9″ pie shell.

    Do you need to bake the “healthy Oreo” crust? I’m between using this and the cashew/raisin/cocoa crush on the banana version of this recipe. Which is your favorite?
