Our Best Dairy-Free Pie Recipes & Pie Crusts

Dairy-Free Pie Recipes

The market for gluten-free breakfast recipes has skyrocketed. Some people have gluten-free meals due to food intolerances, whereas others choose to follow these eating habits for more personal reasons. If you’ve spent much time browsing through pies, especially searching for the ever-elusive dairy-free pie recipe, you might wonder who exactly came up with the saying ‘easy as pie.’ You might even have the urge to throw a pie in their face!

While that would be hilarious (and probably stress-relieving), it would also be a waste of a perfectly good pie. And here at BetterBody Foods, we believe all pies are precious. That’s why we’ve tested, re-tested, and rounded up some of our best dairy-free pie recipes below. With both crisp dairy-free pie crusts and smooth dairy-free pie fillings, these recipes are sure to convert your family and guests. And when they beg you for your secret? Just say ‘It’s easy as pie!’

1 | Oat Milk Pumpkin Pie

Love it or hate it, no holiday pie selection is complete without the traditional classic, pumpkin. This Oatsome Oat Milk Pumpkin Pie recipe is light and creamy, thanks to the naturally-sweet Oatsome Oat Milk.

And oh, the crust! With BetterBody Food’s Virgin Coconut Oil instead of butter, you’ll get tender, flaky layers in this crisp dairy-free pie crust recipe.

2 | Gluten-Free Cherry Oat Crumble Tart

Speaking of classic pies, you can’t beat a sweet-tart cherry pie. Unless you’re talking about a crispy, crumbly, oat streusel-topped cherry pie—that just happens to ALSO be gluten-free.

With a press-in gluten-free crust recipe that comes together in seconds, this Cherry Oat Crumble Tart will give you more time to enjoy the fruits of your labor. If you’re aiming for a dairy- and gluten-free pie recipe, opt for virgin coconut oil, which bakes just like butter.

3 | German Chocolate Pudding Pie

This classic flavor combination gets a welcome update in this decadent German Chocolate Pudding Pie recipe made with a cacao crust. Start with a crisp, chocolate dairy-free pie crust with organic cacao powder (found in the pie crust section below). Then pile it high with a chocolate oat milk pudding and add a layer of shredded coconut and toasted nuts, sweetened with golden agave. This is one they’ll remember!

4 | Double Peanut Butter Pie

Calling all peanut butter lovers—your pie has arrived! And our PBfit Double Peanut Butter Pie doesn’t stop with a silky peanut butter pie filling. We put PBfit peanut butter powder right into the dairy-free pie crust! The result? A dairy-free pie recipe that will be gone before anyone even asks what’s in it.

5 | Almond Butter Pie

Tastes like a candy bar—eats like a pie! We like the delicate nutty flavor of almond butter that gets folded into the dairy-free pie filling. But what really sets this Almond Butter Pie recipe apart is the just-sweet-enough chocolate ganache that tops it. Let it chill in the fridge to set up nicely, and savor the ‘oohs’ and ‘ahhs’ when you dramatically reveal it at the end of your meal.

6 | Vegan Shepherd's Pie

But what if you’re in the mood for a dairy-free savory pie recipe? Gather your herd around this vegan crowd-pleaser, our Shepherd’s Pie with Ranch Potatoes! With Plant Junkie Ranch-topped potatoes, this hearty dish simmers and bakes up golden brown, filling your kitchen with herb-y aromas.

Perfect for a vegan Thanksgiving main or a weeknight dinner, this is one of our best dairy-free pie recipes. It can be made ahead of time and baked when you’re ready! Serve with extra Plant Junkie Ranch for drizzling and dipping.

7 | Triple Berry Rustic Tart

Sure, it might not look as fancy as some of these other pies, but that’s the point! For rustic elegance, bright berry flavor, and easy assembly, nothing beats this Triple Berry Rustic Tart recipe. Don’t sweat making things too even or symmetrical, the handmade look is the heart and soul of this dessert. Serve it with some dairy-free ice cream, call it by its chic French name ‘galette,’ and call it a day.

8 | Baked Apple Crunch

Is a cobbler or Baked Apple Crunch like this, a pie? The debate rages on. One thing everyone can agree on? That it is totally delicious! Chunks of crisp apples bake up sweet and plump, beneath a crumbly gluten-free oat crust. And your guests will never guess the secret ingredient that makes it so moist and rich.
