This Vegan Peanut Butter Pie is the classy older sister of a peanut butter cup. Sit down with a fork to devour this deeply rich treat. This pie is constructed with three layers of deliciousness: a chocolate sandwich cookie crust, smooth and creamy peanut butter filling, and a soft and luscious ganache topping.

You don’t even need to turn on your oven for this one! Let’s get to it!

15 chocolate sandwich cookies -3 tbsp vegan butter 


-8 oz vegan cream cheese, room temperature

-1 cup peanut butter, room temperature

-3/4 cup vegan heavy whipping cream alternative

-½ cup powdered sugar

-2 tsp vanilla extract Ganache:

-4 oz Bixby Semisweet Chocolate Baking Chips

-1/2 cup vegan heavy whipping cream

-¼ cup powdered sugar


-½ cup roasted and salted peanuts Directions:

-Prepare the crust.

Add 3 tbsp of vegan butter to a small microwave safe bowl and microwave until melted, about 20 seconds.

Add chocolate sandwich cookies to a food processor and pulse until crushed.

Add melted vegan butter and continue pulsing until the mixture resembles wet sand.

-Press the mixture into a 9-inch pie tin using clean hands or the back of a measuring cup or glass. Continue pressing and spreading until the crust is evenly distributed over the pie tin.

-Prepare the peanut butter pie filling. Add the vegan cream cheese, peanut butter, ½ cup of powdered sugar, and vanilla extract to an electric mixer with a paddle or whisk attachment. Whip on medium-high speed until smooth and aerated, about 2 minutes.

-In a separate mixing bowl, whisk ¾ cup of the vegan whipping cream to soft peaks using a whisk or electric mixer. Fold in the whipped cream into the peanut butter until just combined.

-Pour the peanut butter filling into the pie tin and smooth with a rubber scraper.

-Add Bixby Chocolate Baking Chips, ½ cup of vegan heavy whipping cream, and ¼ cup of powdered sugar to a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Stirring frequently, heat until melted and smooth, about 3-4 minutes.

-Pour the melted chocolate mixture over the peanut butter pie filling and spread with a spoon until completely smooth and evenly distributed. Sprinkle peanuts over the top, and refrigerate for at least an hour to set.
