You Might Have A Peanut Butter Obsession If…

There are currently at least four open jars of peanut butter in your fridge or pantry.

You believe peanut butter goes well with everything and get excited about any recipe you find that includes it as an ingredient.

You fail to understand how a person could eat just one spoonful of peanut butter and then close the jar. (Seriously, HOW is that possible???)

You know where you stand in the creamy or crunchy debate and believe passionately in your position. (Crunchy peanut butter for life.)

You’re currently eating peanut butter while reading this post.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Covered Katie?

No, I’m not changing the name of the blog.

Although maybe I should…

To be honest, I probably eat even more peanut butter than chocolate!

I’ve started buying it in bulk to get a case discount, and yet all twelve jars somehow always seem to disappear in record speed. Still trying to work out how that happens.

It’s my birthday today, and I’ve decided to have two birthday cakes/desserts this year, because two cakes are better than one, right?

The first cake will be for whenever I get around to throwing a party, and it’ll probably be some variation of Vegan Chocolate Cake.

And the second birthday dessert? This peanut butter pie!

It’s an updated version of a no-bake peanut butter pie recipe that I posted way back in 2012. This one makes a deeper pie, has less oil, and the recipe also includes the optional pie crust I used.

If you’d prefer to make it crustless or serve as peanut butter mousse in glasses or ramekins, that is perfectly fine too!

Healthy Peanut Butter Pie Recipe

To make the peanut butter pie, you simply add the five ingredients to a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.

The recipe is sweetened naturally with banana (there’s also a banana-free version for those who’d prefer it), and if you’re used to treats with a “healthy dessert” taste, you might not even want to add any additional sweetener at all.

If you’re serving to others, I’d definitely recommend including the sweetener – at just 1/4 cup for the entire recipe, it’s over a FULL CUP less sugar than traditional no bake peanut butter pie recipes… and that’s before you’ve even included all the sugar from the Cool Whip!

Peanut Butter Pie

With just 5 ingredients, this no bake peanut butter pie recipe is so easy to make.
Total Time 5 minutes
Yield 1 pie
5 from 1 vote


  • 1 1/2 cup peanut butter or allergy friendly sub
  • 4 1/2 overripe bananas (here's a banana-free version)
  • 1 tbsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • sweetener of choice such as a pinch stevia or 1/4 cup powdered sugar (if you have no sweet tooth, you can omit)


  • Feel free to use your favorite crust. I simply combined the following in a food processor until fine crumbles formed, then pressed into a parchment-lined 9-inch springform: 1 1/2 cup cashews or raw nuts of choice, 1 cup raisins, 1/8 tsp salt, 3 tbsp cocoa powder.
    For the peanut butter pie, blend all pie ingredients until completely smooth. Pour filling over the crust, and refrigerate 3-4 hours or until firm enough to easily slice. Store leftovers in the fridge or freezer so the pie stays firm. Note: you can sub coconut butter for the coconut oil, but any other substitutions are at your own risk, because coconut oil hardens when chilled so other oils or nut butters would not work the same way to firm up the pie. But please feel free to experiment if you wish, and report back if you do!

    Happy birthday! I may also be a little bit obsessed with peanut butter. Like, eating it from the jar obsessed. Like buying a huge kilo tub (cheaper) and it being gone in days. Also I’m glad to see that we agree on crunchy peanut butter: if you didn’t like crunchy I would have had to leave your blog forever…
    Just kidding! (but am I really?)
    And yes i am currently eating peanut butter, well drinking it in a smoothie anyway.

    • kristin paterson says

      Thats why i dont buy peanut butter i will eat it in a day and feel disgusting. lol you should try the powdered kind,less calories atleast…i even eat too much of that.

  2. Bobbi says

    happy Birthday!! Hope it’s your best yet (with many more to come). This “pie” sounds really interesting. Is it very “bananay”/

    • Jason Sanford says

      You can definitely taste the banana, so if you’re not a banana fan then I would go with the banana free version!

  3. Alanna says

    Happy birthday, Katie! I must try this recipe; hoping regular sure (maybe superfine?) will work since I don’t like the taste of powdered sugar. I had a chocolate PB espresso milkshake the other day and it was divine!

  4. Cassie Autumn Tran says

    Happy Birthday Katie! I love how you didn’t recommend the average cake recipe and instead delivered a decadently delicious-looking peanut butter pie! I used to eat peanut butter by the spoon, spreading it all over my face. The latter’s a bit of an exaggeration, but I would have done it anyways. This pie looks to die for. I am currently trying to ween off of nut butter since it’s getting more expensive for me, but when I did have them, I could totally relate to the peanut butter addiction criteria!

  5. Eden says

    SO delicious!! Topped it with melted chocolate (melted chocolate chips with a tiny bit of coconut oil). My husband loves peanut butter cups and said this tasted like a GIANT peanut butter cup (pie!) He actually requested it for his birthday in December!
    PS he loves peanut butter and he loves bananas, but he dislikes peanut butter with bananas together at the same time. He completely dislikes PB & banana combo. So he was shocked to find out this pie had four bananas in it! He said all he could taste was peanut butter (and chocolate). He was amazed! I used a couple pinches of pure uncut stevia to sweeten the filling and blended the filling mixture in my Vitamix. I also made it in a 7-inch springform pan so it would be thicker. Thanks for this winning recipe, Katie!

  6. Emma says

    Oh my god this was sooooo yummy!!!! It tasted like peanut butter cups!!!! I added some ground flax seed and made a crust by processing some dates, walnuts, and coco powder!!!!

  7. Amanda says

    Thanks Jason. I used sanitarium peanut butter which is 100% peanuts, Aldi organic coconut oil, Queens vanilla essence, pure maple syrup to sweeten and bananas. Could it be that I used to high a speed on my processor perhaps?

  8. Abbey says

    I subbed soy milk for coconut oil and added 3 tbsp tapioca starch + 1/2 cup dates (instead of sugar). Blended filling in vitamix for 5 minutes and it came out great! I also subbbed peanut butter powder for peanut butter (less fat). Made this for my boyfriend. Peanut butter is his favorite. He was so happy. Said it’s like something the Cheesecake Factory would serve. We’ll definitely be saving this recipe. Thank you!!

  9. Carola Marini says

    Hello! I was wondering if, when you say “cups” you mean actual cups or 250ml, because 1 cup filled with peanut butter weights more than 250g so I’m not sure!


  10. Paul Dean says

    Great recipe – I tried it as a chilled version as well as a frozen version and used honey for the sweetener – For me the frozen was best in terms of retaining its shape and presentation- just take is out of the freezer 20 mins before you want to eat it.

  11. spin gal says

    Regarding the coconut oil, is it the solid type? I have a jar of it but have never used coconut oil and I understand there are different kinds.

    • CCK Media Team says

      The jar is good – this works with either refined or unrefined coconut oil 🙂
      Coconut oil is solid when chilled or liquid when gently warmed (or if it’s a very hot day).

  12. Diana says

    Oh my gosh this pie is so good! I made it for my son who is gluten free, dairy free, and egg free. Everyone loved it and he did not have a chance to eat much of it – just 2 pieces over several days. I will make this often as it is now a favourite of everyone here. I used GF graham wafers to make the crust and added 2 tsp cocoa powder so it would be chocolate.
