No-Bake Peanut Butter Pie

This no-bake peanut butter pie is ultra creamy and completely delicious!

Peanut Butter Pie- no bake and secretly healthy!


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

You might want to sit down for this.

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: The Ultimate Chocolate Pie

However, this no-bake peanut butter pie was so good it forced me to make an exception. Really, I didn’t miss the chocolate one bit.

So you know it must have been good!

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

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.

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.

5 Minute Peanut Butter Pie. No baking required.

No-Bake Peanut Butter Pie


  • 1 cup peanut butter or allergy-friendly alternative
  • 3 medium bananas (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)
  • stevia extract to taste, or 3-4 tbsp powdered sugar or pure maple syrup


*This makes a thin pie, so if you want a deeper dish recipe be sure to try this Peanut Butter Pie Recipe instead.

Blend everything together very well in a food processor or high speed blender. 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!

    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 🙂

  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 :).

    • 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.

    • 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.

      • 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!!

  3. Ali @ Peaches and Football says

    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?? 😀

    • Chocolate-Covered Katie says

      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 ;).

      • Michelle says

        What cake? What frosting? This comment is on the No-Bake Peanut Butter Pie recipe, which is divine, by the way! I tried it today, and it is so rich and delicious! Yum!

        • Michelle says

          Sorry, I see the reference to the maple chiffon cake now. I was hoping to be able to edit my first comment, but no. I also wanted to add that not only is the peanut butter pie rich and delicious, but it’s so quick and easy, and I had all of ingredients on hand.

  4. 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!

  5. 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!

      • 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!

        • 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.

    • 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! 🙂

  6. Olivia @ OmNom Love says

    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!

  7. 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 !!

  8. 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!

    • 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.

  9. 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:)

  10. 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!!

  11. 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!

  12. 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!



  13. 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!

  14. 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! 🙂

  15. Katie @ Peace Love & Oats says

    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…)
