This Gluten-free No Bake Peanut Butter Pie is very creamy, vegan, dairy-free, delicious and incredible easy to throw together.
I know here in North America almost everybody grows up eating peanut butter with bananas, apples and toast, right? So yummy! But do you know it’s not very traditional to eat peanut butter in South America? Well… Now it’s getting more popular, but when I grew up 30 something years ago it certainly wasn’t popular. To be honest I ate peanut butter for the first time here in Canada few years ago. At first I didn’t like much, but now I love it!
This Gluten-free No Bake Peanut Butter Pie is a frozen pie that is perfect for summer, which is right around the corner. It’s time to start eating some frozen treats. Don’t you agree with me?
I was very amazed by the flavour of this peanut butter pie. I mean… Don’t get me wrong I knew this pie was going to taste delicious. This combo (peanut butter, banana and chocolate) it’s hard to beat, right? But because it’s so simple to make I didn’t think it would taste this GOOD! It really reminds me of my Low-Carb Peanut Butter Cookies and Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie.

So, let’s talk about how is made this delicious Gluten-free No Bake Peanut Butter Pie.
- First you start with the crust, which is made with peanuts, cashews, natural sweetener, almond milk, cocoa powder, pure vanilla extract and salt. You can see that this crust is very healthy and yet tasty… Love it!

It’s super flavourful, creamy and addictive I have to say 😉 The mixture is made in the food processor and has banana, natural peanut butter, almond milk, vanilla and a little bit of salt. It literally tastes like heaven 😉
- Last the topping: I melted a dark chocolate bar in the microwave and drizzle all over the pie. Hmm… So GOOD! Of course you have to choose a good quality chocolate! Then add some roasted peanuts!
After all these steps you put your pie in the freezer and wait for 3 hours. And then you have a delicious Gluten-free No Bake Peanut Butter Pie that is healthy, gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, no bake and healthy! Perfect Dessert for summer!
- 1/3 cup dark chocolate chopped
- 1 tbsp roasted peanuts
- Add all the crust ingredients to a food processor and puree until all the ingredients are well combined. Be careful not to over process the nut mixture into nut butter. If necessary stop and scrape the sides of the food processor bowl.
- Place the dough in an 8" pie pan with removable bottom and with a spatula press until evenly uniform on the bottom.
- Add all the filling ingredients in the food processor. Puree until you obtain a homogenous mixture.
- Pour the filling over the crust and freeze the pie until solid for at least 3 hours.
- Before serving top with melted dark chocolate and roasted peanuts.
- Thaw the pie on a counter for about 10 minutes before slicing and serve.
- When you melt the chocolate, make sure there is not any moisture in the bowl or the chocolate will seize.
- Make sure not to over process the crust as you still want there to be some texture left in the crust.
- Feel free to swap almond milk for cashew milk.
- To store: Keep the peanut butter pie in the freezer until ready to eat.
