I do enjoy a good pie (who doesn’t?) but, I have a confession, I’m a stay at home mom with lofty aspirations of being Susie Homemaker. I say “lofty,” because I’m far from it.
I do love to post my inspirational food creations on Instagram, and of course, I’m perfect on Facebook. Let’s face it; some days, it’s a miracle if I put on pants! As much as I love to eat pie, I don’t often find joy in the time and effort it takes to create them.
Once you brave the desserts, why not go for the full feast effect? Here are some ideas to get you started!
Bottom line, even a mediocre homemaker can make a delicious, awe inspiring pie…but, let’s keep it simple, and plant-based.
If that seems like a tall order, I assure you, it’s not. In this roundup, I’ll share with you some of the best pie recipes we’ve come across.
From delightful and decadent mousse, to a savory kale pie (kale? In a pie? You bet! Try it and be as amazed as your family!) and everything else you’ve yet to imagine.
Let’s get baking!

No-Bake Peanut Butter Cup Pie (Gluten-Free)
This one takes the…pie!
With only four ingredients, and no baking, this pie is the epitome of simplicity. Plus, it looks like you spent a fortune—or at least half of your day—no one needs to know your secrets!
They’ll be too busy rolling their eyes in bliss to even question it.
Apple Pie Waffles
Not a ‘pie’ in the traditional sense, but, Holy Aquafaba! These are worth running out and buying a waffle iron for!
Picture it; apples, bubbling on the stove, filling your home with the perfect scents of fall. Next comes the sweet sounds of lips smacking with utter satisfaction.
Go ahead. Break free from labels and make pie for breakfast! No one here will judge you, I promise.
Oreo Peanut Butter Pie
Can you tell we like chocolate? We definitely do! Here’s more!
This pie is super simple, can you melt stuff? You’re in. No bake and who needs an oven when you can eat giant peanut butter cups! Looks impressive (not to base things on looks but come on!
It is very pleasing to the eye), and best of all, tastes like heaven. You’re welcome.
No Bake Mango Pie
Fruity pies always remind me of summer, and this is no exception.
This confection takes a couple of specialty ingredients. Agar agar, which is an animal free alternative to gelatin, and tapioca flour.
This recipe yields amazing and refreshing results.
Citrusy Sweet Potato Pie
Sweet. Potato. Pie. If that’s not comfort food for your plant-based soul, I don’t know what is.
This takes some time, although most of that is in cooking and waiting. The preparation of the pie itself is quite easy, and so delightful for your senses.
Believe me when I say your efforts will pay off. You’ll bask in the looks of complete adoration on the faces of your loved ones.
Savoury Butternut Squash and Chestnut Pie (Gluten-Free)
Sweet pies make you roll your eyes?
Try this savory beauty on for size. Butternut squash is one of my favorite things to cook and eat.
It’s so versatile, delicious, and good for you…even in pie form. This recipe may appear intimidating, but it’s so worth it. Trust.
This pie is actually a giant cookie (nom!).
You can serve it with just about anything here. You’re the hero of any get together.
You can eat it hot or cold. And, yes, it is acceptable to bake and not share with anyone. I won’t tell.
Kale Almond Butternut Squash Pie
Dinner all baked in a pie? What’s not to like?
Like grandma used to bake, but better. Butternut Squash, Kale and almonds baked into a perfect savory crust. Satisfying. Filling.
No one will question your motives. They’ll be too busy mmmmm’ing.
Dino Kale Pie (Gluten-Free)
Yes, Kale goes in pie. Don’t let anyone tell you any different.
This is but one way to get the leafy green powerhouse into your belly with zero regrets.
Kale is such as wonderful and nutritious addition to your staple favorites. Don’t be afraid to experiment!
Lemon Raspberry Key Lime Pie
I’m from the South, so Key Lime Pie is a childhood staple. No one ever thought it was healthy…
But this version actually is, and it’s made with avocado!
I know what you’re thinking, avocado, in a pie? But yes, the avocado makes this pie creamy, dreamy, and actually good for you!
Plus, if your family has an aversion to green things, this may cure it. Or not. But it IS delicious, so make it!
5-Ingredient Raw Apple Pie (Gluten-Free)
Five ingredients. What could be easier than that? Nothing.
Plus, it’s raw, so all the valuable nutrients in the seeds and fruit aren’t lost in the cooking. And if you’re into raw recipes? Check these out!
It’s like a crisp bite of fall you can enjoy whenever you please. This would be a great recipe to have your kids make for grandma.
Won’t she be impressed? Yes, she will.
Three Bean Chilli Pie (Gluten-Free)
Chilli was one of the first things I made for my family when we went plant-based. It’s so easy and filling, and the perfect way to warm up your home and your belly when it’s freezing outside.
Now, wrap that satisfying stew into a flaky crust, and voila! Bob’s your uncle!
I actually have an Uncle Bob, and even he’d love this pie! I mean, it’s chilli, it’s pie, and it’s straightforward (especially if you use a ready-made crust).
This recipe can also be adapted to your family’s tastes. Get the kids involved in cooking by having them pick their favorite veggie to add in. You can’t mess this one up.
Cherry Pie (Gluten-Free)
The creator, Marina, recommends eating this pie BEFORE dinner. Yes, please!
If you think eating raw sounds boring or unappetizing, here is another fine example of a raw vegan deliciousness to change your mind.
This pie is crafted from just 6 ingredients and is almost all fruit!
Even the crust! Healthy eating never tasted or looked this yummy!
Strawberry Chiffon Pie
This pie reminds me of being a kid. I loved Jell-O in all forms (except with fruit chunks. Long story, don’t ask!).
Here, it’s recreated with a plant-based lifestyle in mind. Still simple, still delicious.
Still the kind of dessert you can whip up the night before your kids’ soccer game and show up looking like the glorious baker you are.
No one needs to know it’s vegan! They won’t believe you if you tell them anyway.
Raw Strawberry Pie
Kim, The Veggie Gal, says you can eat this pie for breakfast! I’m so down for that.
An amazing blend of dates, strawberries and nuts makes for the sweetest pie this side of Strawberryland. This recipe makes me yearn for summer and a hot day of berry picking.
Or at least asking my husband to pick up a flat of strawberries on his way home from work. Either way, we’re eating this pronto!
Chocolate Caramel Silk Pie
A decadent confection with no sugar added? You betcha.
Dates, you guys. DATES! They are Mother Nature’s answer to your sugar cravings, and so much better for you!
Make this beauty and you will never question the tastiness of tofu again. I promise!!
Peppermint Patty Freezer Pie
When I was a kid, I’d hide those tiny Peppermint Patties in the freezer and nom them up when mom wasn’t looking.
My kids have inherited that trait and have stashes of (much healthier) dark chocolate in our freezer.
Break out this recipe and you’ll be the coolest mom (or neighbor, or person) on the block.
It’s the perfect combination of chocolate and mint and oh my… This one may be the best thing you’ve ever put in your face.
Lentil Shepherd’s Pie
Some folks may object to calling a plant-based savory casserole, such as this, a Shepard’s Pie, but once they taste it, they’ll get over it.
Lentils are one of the things I never really ate before going plant-based, and now, I eat them in so many different things.
They’re so versatile and bulk up a meal in an extraordinarily satisfactory way. That’s a tongue tripping way to describe “meaty,” isn’t it?
Anyway, this savory Shepard’s Pie is amazing, and sure to be a crowd pleaser.
Banana Cream Pie (Gluten-Free)
B-A-N-A-N-A-S. Not only fun to shout out in your best Gwen Stefani voice, but also fun to eat. For more banana goodness, check these out.
I love this recipe because of its crust. Remember when I talked about my apprehension to pie and it’s messy, floury, rolling nightmare?
This recipe has the easiest homemade crust ever!! And although it calls for custard powder, the creator gives alternatives that work just as great. This pie would be a farmer’s market dream.
Ah, blueberries. So delightful and full of good-for-you antioxidants!
Another perfect summertime dream. Blueberry picking and pie baking. Swoon!
The whole pie calls for only nine ingredients, and even though it has a fussier crust, it’s time to bust out your rolling pin and get to steppin.
Sometimes, we have to face our fears and make the messy crust.
Honestly, kids love the mess and maybe you can convince your partner to clean up after. If you promise them a HUGE piece of the pie. Maybe.
Chocolate Hazelnut Pie
A triple layer version of this favorite, that looks almost too good to eat! Eat it though, or someone else will.
You’ll need to prep for this pie, but don’t let that stop you from making it.
The ooey gooey delicacy of it is too good to pass over. Schedule time to create it. No, really. Get out your fancy planner and mark it in pen.
You need to make this. And yes, I give you permission to hide in your bedroom to eat it all by yourself.
Mini Peach Ice Cream Pie (Gluten-Free)
These are the absolute cutest. Makes me wish my kids were in public school so I could make them for their classmates. Oh well, more for us!
I don’t think there is an easier pie to make in the whole world. Four ingredients. FOUR.
I love the use of dates for the crust, and what could possibly be better than homemade ice cream made from fresh fruit? Nothing, I tell you.
Absolutely nothing. If you have a terrible fear of pie making, this is the perfect start for you. What are you waiting for?
Easy No Bake Pumpkin Pie (Gluten-Free)
I adore pumpkin pie. A few years ago, I got really ambitious and made a super complicated triple layer confection that made me want to tear my hair out.
My Facebook memories still remind me of this catastrophe every year. Don’t make the same mistake. Make this instead!
Seven ingredients. Three steps. No baking. Save your sanity and your holiday. And if you’re hankering for more holiday treats, check these out.
For the record, you can make “Thanksgiving” recipes any time you want to! I promise you that no one will be mad or refuse to eat it!
Easy Samosa Pie
Here’s another dinner pie that looks complicated but isn’t. It comes together in less than 40 minutes and will leave you full and satisfied.
You’ll need to get the phyllo/filo puff pastry dough, but that’s found in most grocery stores. Just remember to check the ingredients and make sure there’s no dairy or eggs in the one you buy.
Most happen to be accidentally vegan, so it shouldn’t be too difficult.
You’ll also need vegan mince (or in the States, crumbles, or the like) or you can substitute with lentils.
No-Bake Raspberry Chocolate Pie (Gluten-Free)
This beautiful and delicious confection comes together in 15 minutes and is sure to wow everyone who tastes it.
Raspberries, chocolate, and avocado whipped into a fluffy cloud and nestled into a crust of crushed nuts.
Mmmmmm! Eat it fresh, freeze or skip the crust and just indulge! You can’t go wrong!
Wild Garlic and Spring Veg Pot Pie
Growing up, I loved my mom’s pot pie, but of course, now that I eat a plant-based diet, I’m always on the hunt for veggie meals that recreate those comfort foods. This pie fits the bill, and then some.
It’s packed with veggies and even calls for chik’n (which are available in nearly every grocery freezer case).
The garlic pesto inside the pie and slathered over the potatoes is an explosion of flavor you won’t soon forget. This pie will entice even the pickiest of eaters!
Pot Pie with Jackfruit
“Cosy deliciousness” is how Maria describes this pot pie, and I’m inclined to agree! The scents and flavors of this dish remind me of warm fireplaces and snuggly slippers on a frigid, winter day.
Jackfruit is one of those versatile ingredients you might find intimidating. I assure you, it’s so easy and delicious, you’ll be looking for more recipes in no time. Start here and get creative!
The combination of jackfruit and mushrooms makes for an incredible meaty texture that will please even your most skeptical omnivore guest.
I adore how the recipe makes individual pies, which would be perfect for making ahead of time and pulling out of the freezer when needed.
Lemon Meringue Pie
Meringue is one of those things that looks so daunting but is actually quite simple to create. It does take a bit pf practice, so don’t give up!
Aquafaba (chickpea water) makes the most amazing meringue. It’s light, airy, and when combined with this perfect filling of lemon and plant-based gelatin, you have the essence of summer!
There are a couple of specialty ingredients such as the vegetable gelatin and Xantham gum, but those are easy to find at your local health food store or online.
5-Ingredient, No-Bake French Silk Pie
Five ingredients are all that stands between you and this fluffy masterpiece. This is truly one of the easiest and most decadent pies you can create in less than half-an-hour.
Moist chocolate mousse, topped with whipped coconut cream, this pie is gratifying both to the eye and to the palate. Present this to your friends and family, and they will be filled with awe.
Once they taste it, they’ll beg for more of your culinary treasures. Lucky for you, you have this list of easy and crowd-pleasing pies!
Easy Mince Pie (Gluten-Free)
Did you know that most mince meat pies are actually plant-based? Neither did I, but boy, am I glad that they are!
These individual mince pies are perfect for your holiday table alongside these other festive dishes.
Using a store-bought mince, these little cuties come together in about 15 minutes. What could possibly be easier in the hustle and bustle of holiday baking?
Enlist the help of your smaller family members. You’re not only making adorable pies, you’re creating lasting memories!
I hope you’ve enjoyed perusing these recipes as much as I have reviewing them! The ones I’ve tried are simply put, fantastic.
I love the variety in plant-based cooking, and I get so excited to try out new things.
Hopefully, these pies give you the confidence to get in your kitchen and make memorable treats. As you can see, there’s never a wrong time for pie!!
