It is really easy to make this peanut butter pie gluten free by using gluten free oreos for the crust. All of the other ingredients in the recipe are naturally gluten free!

If you prefer a graham cracker crust, here’s our recipe!

Tips for Making No Bake Pie

  • Blend the entire oreo (cream and cookies) when making the crust.
  • I recommend using creamy peanut butter, not natural peanut butter as it can separate.
  • Use a sharp, skinny knife to cut the pie into pieces.
