No Bake Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie! The BEST chocolate pie; tastes just like a peanut butter cup and you’ll never guess the secret ingredient! A must for summer, and a kid-friendly dessert.
Oh my goodness, this pie. THIS PIE. This chocolate peanut butter pie that is so incredible, so insanely creamy and delicious that you’ll never, ever guess the secret ingredient.
This pie that BL ate two slices of for dinner one night last week as he declared it the best.damn.pie after each bite.
It is. It really, really is. I don’t like to tell you that everything is my favorite, (because how can you trust anyone like that?) but really, it’s my favorite.
And- are you ready for it? The creamy secret is that it contains… silken tofu. Yes, that’s right; that light as air, chocolate mousse texture is made real by tofu. I swear up and down that there’s no way you could taste it. It’s there for body and texture- that’s it!
Here’s the deal though. It might be a pie out of tofu, but it’s still dripping with chocolate. I used an entire bag of chocolate chips on this one, so I’m not exactly selling you a healthy dessert. Just trust the process; it all comes together so deliciously that you’ll completely forget you’re eating tofu.
I can’t take all the credit for this pie— there are several variations on chocolate tofu pie out there but I knew that my chocolate pie had to contain peanut butter. Because I like chocolate but I adore chocolate and peanut butter together! The sweet and salty combination is way better than regular chocolate in my mind; so a healthy dose of peanut butter goes into this pie.
Lastly- the crust. I bought it. I know. I came all this way to show you how to make the best pie filling ever, and then I used a store-bought crust. The reality is that this pie is so easy to put together that I didn’t want to over-complicate things with making a separate pie crust.
You can make your own crust; and for my vegan friends, you should also know that most store-bought crusts are actually vegan because they use oil and not butter. I know they aren’t healthy, but it’s a dessert. Remember that not all food has to serve a health purpose.
Happy Friday! This is my favorite weekend of the year as it combines both my birthday and Mother’s Day. I’m planning on taking Van to pick strawberries on Saturday and probably eating this pie all weekend long. All my love to my fellow mamas. Xo

Alex is right, this is the best pie ever. I don’t like going out on Valentine’s Day, so I’ll be having dinner at home and I will serve this pie for dessert! You won’t be disappointed, nor will anyone figure out that it contains tofu!!!!
I was looking for this recipe as I had it years ago and loved it!
I used pecan pie crust, almond butter and soy milk with 60% bittersweet chocolate morsels – delicious !!
I made this for my birthday and it was so good we are making a second one to enjoy. I used 72% chocolate for the first and this second one I am using 63%. This recipe is so easy, but super delicious. Highly recommend!
I made this recipe by replacing the half cup milk with 1/4 cup Skrewball Peanut Butter Whiskey and 1/4 cup milk. I also added 3 tablespoons sugar.
Should I press the tofu before using it?
Hi haley– you don’t need to press the tofu first.
Do you have the nutritional information for this?
I’ve made this recipe in the past, we all love it. I’m now on WW and wondering if you have suggestions for substituting some PB2 for the peanut butter to reduce the caloric load. Any suggestions appreciated! Thanks.
Hi, Can this be put into the freezer for a more firm pie?
Yes. It should thicken once you place it in the fridge.
Can I use soy milk instead of almond milk?
Have made this several times and will continue to make it. Used recipe as written. So yummy!
So glad you liked it!
What oil besides coconut could be used in this recipe. allergic (and hate) coconut.
Any oil! The coconut just helps to melt the chocolate.
