Servings 10


  • Grab 14 ounces of Oreos or other chocolate sandwich cookies.
  • Melt 6 tablespoons of vegan butter.


  • Soften 12 ounces of vegan cream cheese to room temperature.
  • Add 1 cup of smooth unsweetened peanut butter.
  • Pour in ½ cup of maple syrup.
  • Sprinkle in ½ cup of powdered sugar.
  • Add ½ teaspoon of fine sea salt.
  • Include 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract.
  • Optionally throw in 2 cups of vegan whipped cream.

Toppings: Consider using vegan chocolate frosting (recipe in notes), chocolate shavings, and peanuts.


    • In a food processor, blend the cookies and melted butter until they form a fine crumb mixture.
    • Press the crust mixture into a 9-inch springform pan. Use a measuring cup to press it firmly – about 1 ½ inches up the sides. Freeze while you prepare the filling.
    • In the food processor, combine all filling ingredients (excluding whipped cream) until smooth. Fold or mix in the whipped cream until just combined.
    • Pour the filling onto the crust and spread it evenly. Freeze for 2 hours or until firm.
    • Optionally, pipe vegan chocolate frosting on top or drizzle with dark chocolate and crushed peanuts.


    • For vegan chocolate frosting: Melt 4 ounces of dark chocolate and let it cool. Cream ½ cup of vegan butter with ¾ cup of powdered sugar. Add in melted chocolate, a pinch of salt, and ½ teaspoon of vanilla extract. Whip until light and fluffy.
    • Whipped cream is optional but gives the pie a mousse-like texture. Cocowhip topping from So Delicious works well.
    • Use unsweetened peanut butter. Adjust powdered sugar if using sweetened peanut butter.
    – Cover and store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
    – You can freeze it for up to 3 months; let it defrost 20 minutes before serving.
    Bonus idea: Turn this vegan peanut butter pie into amazing squares or bars! Use a 9×9 square pan, follow the recipe, and slice into squares. Enjoy!
