22 of the Tastiest Peanut Butter Pie Recipes (All Types)

A homemade creamy peanut butter pie.

As a 95 percent vegetarian and 110 percent Georgian, I love some peanuts. Boiled, deep fried, salty, Spanish style with skins on…however you have them, peanuts are the best protein source on the planet. Now, if you want to go a step further, stay sweet with one of these top prize-winning peanut butter pie recipes.

I’ve done the research to save you time, just so you can spend it baking up a storm. Grab whatever peanut butter you have on hand…creamy, chunky, all-natural, or JIF. Now you have taken the first step in the right direction for a delicious, delectable, almost too rich to eat a single slice in one sitting…peanut butter pie.

1. Did Somebody Say Peanut Butter Pie? Make Mine No-Bake!

Here we go! The first recipe in this roundup is everything I expect a peanut butter pie to be. Cookie crumb shell, creamy pudding-like consistency of the pie filling, and no baking whatsoever.

Start out the day with this cool and delightful peanut butter no-bake pie and see what I’m talking about. It’s a healthy, almost sinful way to enjoy the flavors of peanut butter combined with chocolate sandwich cookies. What’s not to love?

2. Take to Lunch Style Chocolate Cookie Crumb Crust Peanut Butter Pie

Next up we have Ree Drummond’s Food Network recipe for a chocolate cookie crumb-crusted peanut butter pie. I feel this one is more lunch box friendly thanks to a thicker crust. See what you think by comparing these first two almost-identical recipes.

What makes a slice of pie perfect for the lunch box is a substantial base to hold up the pudding filling. That filling also has to be thick and rich, full of real peanut butter and its healthy nut protein. 

3. I Swear Cream Cheese Makes Every Peanut Butter Pie Richer

Now we are getting into even richer pie territory with this peanut butter pie recipe. Here the recipe amps up the flavor and pudding texture with cream cheese, which is new to this roundup. I personally love cream cheese mixed with peanut butter as a snack so this is a great combination.

I’m also all for a peanut butter and chocolate combination–and the use of peanut butter cup candies sends this pie recipe to outer space. It also requires you to pick up some frozen whipped topping, or you can make your own using canned coconut cream for a vegan finish.

4. Try Old Fashioned Peanut Butter Pie With a Flaky Bottom

What makes a peanut butter pie old-fashioned? It turns out that you need to start with a flaky bottom! A flaky bottom is what happens when you make your own sourdough pie crust, which is what you learn to do in this recipe.

Could also follow the instructions for preparing an all-butter pie crust instead of the same concept of old-fashioned pie. Otherwise, the filling is super simple and uses that now-familiar cream cheese for structure and tang.

5. Add the Extra Chocolate Chips to a Peanut Butter Pie

A chocolate chip infusion is one thing–this pie goes overboard completely by smothering the top of the finished pie with even more candy. Peanut butter morsels and halved peanut butter cup miniatures are the way to finish off this divine pie. It really does look like a masterpiece they would sell at most any bakery.

The pie is everything you would want for a holiday affair, and you also get the infusion of a new ingredient–vanilla extract. I personally cannot stand the stuff but some of you can appreciate vanilla flavors in foods.

6. Please, Cover My Peanut Butter Pie in Cool Whip

Back to being super simple, this is a pie with basically three things added to peanut butter. You need OREO cookies, Cool Whip whipped topping, and cream cheese. Go full fat and save yourself the worries, unless you have Neufchatal-style cheese.

In that case, choose that cream cheese alternative. These creamy cheeses taste and act exactly the same in any no-bake frozen pie like this one. Except Neufchatel cheese is a French cheese that has about a third of the saturated fat as cream cheese in the US.

7. Question: Have You Ever Had an OREO Crust With a PBP?

With just five ingredients, this recipe chooses either OREO cookies filled with plain white cream or graham crackers for the pie crust. Once you have that bottom part settled, it’s time to whip up the filling. Since this is a no-bake pie that is best served chilled, keep all of your ingredients as cold as possible while working with them.

That will result in the fluffiest texture that stands up to picnics and potlucks. 

8. Next, Taste of Home Takes the Peanut Butter Pie…Literally!

A Taste of Home, the peanut butter pie gets a treatment of creaminess. Another no-bake success story, the pie features seven ingredients. This includes a pre-baked graham cracker crust, frozen whipped topping, and cream cheese.

You also need powdered sugar and whole milk along with the star ingredient–creamy peanut butter. Topping this pie requires nothing more than a quarter cup of chopped peanuts! That’s a pretty perfect finish to a peanut butter pie.

9. Completely Coated, Check Out This Enrobed Chocolate PBP

This is an extra special pie that is a slice of peanut butter pie enrobed in chocolate. That exterior chocolate topping is the coolest thing I have seen in this recipe roundup. Cheers to a coating of a quarter-inch of fudge over the top of a peanut butter pie filling.

The recipe also boasts success without the addition of whipped topping or cream cheese

10. We’ve Got a Candy Bar Pile Up on the Peanut Butter Pie Tin!

Grab your bags of chocolate bar miniatures for this one. You also want a drizzle-worthy amount of hardening chocolate shell and caramel topping. Add some liquid peanut butter and dig in!

This dessert is all that you want in something to eat at the movies–except you can eat it at home without a mess. The recipe suggests that you can make this way ahead of time. Freeze the sliced pie or the entire pie in plastic for up to a month.

As we continue focusing on no-bake peanut butter pie recipes, here is one that also comes in strong with the use of candy. Talk about taking the pie to the next level, add some peanut butter-filled Reese’s cups, and you are set! 

12. Give Me the Graham Cracker Crust for My Slice of PB Pie

Creamy, easy, and chilled–this is a silky pie for your peanut butter-loving daydreams. Slice it up and top with roasted peanuts and some flaky salt. While not in the recipe, fleur de sel is the ideal finishing salt to use for this recipe.

The use of a graham cracker crust is everything you want in a pie, and it makes good use of this often ignored cracker in the cabinets.

13. Food and Wine Presents a Creamy Dreamy Peanut Butter Pie

At Food and Wine, they have a version of a creamy peanut butter pie that is super decadent. Why this is the first recipe to include Butter Butters aka the original peanut-shaped and filled sandwich cookies, is beyond my understanding. That should have been the go-to cookie crust option from the get-go!

No matter, at least we get to see this cookie in action. Use that version of a sandwich cookie to create a super-rich peanut butter crust using butter.

14. Now Mother Thyme Provides a No-Bake Version of the PB Pie

If you are short on time, Mother Thyme is the place to go for the fastest no-bake peanut butter pie recipe. This recipe features a heaping helping of whipped topping along with an assortment of sauces and candy chips. This creates a pretty presentation that is perfect for an after-dinner delight.

Have a few store-bought OREO pie crusts already on hand for this recipe. Then you can have a great treat that is somewhat healthy and very filling thanks to rich, creamy peanut butter.

15. Here’s an Icebox Peanut Butter Pie to Make in an Hour or Less

So, in this recipe, instead of using a whipped topping for a topping, you are using the ingredient to fluff up the peanut butter. This is used with cream cheese and powdered sugar for a traditional peanut butter no-bake pie filling. However, you need to let this pie set up for at least eight hours or overnight in the refrigerator.

When you do, you are rewarded with an easy and satisfying pie for a luncheon or ladies’ brunch. The pie should be served with vanilla ice cream and hot fudge dripped over the top.

16. Go Vegan and Cut the Dairy in a PBP with The Conscious Plant Kitchen

If you don’t want to eat dairy or are vegan, here is a recipe for you that is by The Conscious Plant Kitchen. The recipe starts with coconut milk and coconut cream, both in a can, to create a silky mouth feel. However, you will also be using chia seeds to help hold up the filling of this pie.

They also call for using natural peanut butter, not the JIF or SKIPPY kinds. This is another unique ingredient for a recipe in this roundup, as most recipes for peanut butter pie use the sugar-added version. By the time you get finished, though, you have a peanut butter pie that looks more like a frozen slice of Snickers pie than anything else.

17. How About No Peanuts in a Peanut Butter Pie? Is That Even Possible?!

Now let’s get right down to it. Can you make a peanut butter pie without peanuts? You certainly can thanks to this recipe by Good Life Eats.

The use of almond butter in a jar is the first of any of these pies. Yet I can easily see that the substitution would not be a problem with the filling of this pie. Cream cheese and heavy cream also go into the filling, so it definitely is not a vegan pie–or lacking in saturated fats.

This is the first pie recipe in this roundup to use canned sweetened condensed milk, too. That’s typical of any pie filling that is no-bake, such as a no-bake cheesecake, but not usually seen in the peanut butter no-bake pies as featured here. Sweetened condensed milk is quite a flavor to add to this pie, and you will end up with something very decadent and worth a holiday meal.

18. Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Pie for When Gluten Intolerance Arises

This gluten-free peanut butter pie is going all-in with a health trend and using gluten-free chocolate cookies. Also, this is not a no-bake recipe, technically, as the pie crust must be pre-baked before filling. Otherwise, the ingredients are not too outlandish for this gluten-free pie.

White sugar, butter, cream cheese, and heavy whipping cream are combined for the filling using creamy peanut butter. Once done, the pie is not baked but needs to be set up in the refrigerator.

19. Chunky Monkey aka Banana Cream aka Peanut Butter Snickers Pie–Yes, I Know!!

Here we have something that is truly called a Snickers pie. The pie is a banana cream pie also known as a chunky monkey pie. That is thanks to the use of bananas for the pudding.

Along with instant vanilla pudding, the filling contains bananas and sweetened condensed milk. Top this pie with whipped topping and you are ready to dig in!

20. Frozen Peanut Butter Pie, Perfect for a Pic-a-nic Basket, Hey, BooBoo!

Next, what do we have but a peanut butter pretzel pie, which stands out as one of the more savory options in this recipe roundup. Pretzels are cooked bread dough that is extra salty. Adding this to the peanut butter pie filling is the next best thing to having pretzels dipped in beer cheese.

Homemade pudding can be tricky, but it is worth it to know how to make it at home.
