Step One

Gather up your ingredients to make the pie crust.

Step Two

The first step to making this pie is to make your no-bake crust. It’s so easy, you just have to put almonds, dried coconut, and dates in a food processor so they can blend up.

Step Three

After you’ve processed the ingredients, the next step is to press them into a tart pan with a removable bottom, or a pie tin. It’s your choice.

You can just use your hands to press the mixture into the edges. It may seem like it’s crumbly, but it will stick together once it’s been refrigerated.

Step Four

Once you’ve made the pie crust, stick that in the refrigerator to chill while you make the filling. The filling is super easy too! You just have to gather up your silken tofu, maple syrup, vanilla extract, cocoa powder, and peanut butter.

As always, please do see the recipe card at the end of this post for the exact ingredients and measurements.

The filing then gets blended in a high-speed blender until it’s smooth.

Step Five

Pour the pie filling into the crust and chill the whole thing until it’s firm.

I also recommend sprinkling some chocolate chips on top since peanut butter and chocolate go so well together.

You’ll be surprised how the whole thing firms up once it’s chilled completely. 

Step Six

The last step is to simply slice your Vegan Peanut Butter Silken Tofu Pie and serve it.

I hope you love this pie as much as I do! The raw crust recipe has great texture, and holds together nicely. If you love peanut butter, then the sweet, peanut buttery filling is also a real treat.
