Gluten Free Peanut Butter Oreo Cheesecake

Using just 7 ingredients, this gluten free peanut butter Oreo cheesecake is easy to prepare and impossible to resist!

Apparently, a dish cannot be considered dessert, unless it has chocolate or peanut butter present. At least, not according to my family...

Sometimes, I'm very accommodating and give them both!

This no-bake cheesecake features peanut butter AND a gluten free Oreo crust. That's right!

Crushed Oreos are mixed with melted butter and pressed into a tart or pie dish. Next, peanut butter is whipped with cream cheese, milk, and a little powdered sugar. Finally, cream is beaten until stiff peaks form and then folded-into the cream cheese mixture. So simple, yet absolutely irresistible!

No cooking required.

What is No-Bake Cheesecake?

Exactly as it sounds, a no-bake cheesecake has been fully assembled without seeing the inside of an oven. Picture your favorite crust covered with a cheesecake mousse... The perfect dessert when it's too hot to turn on the oven or you just want a cool and creamy treat! And, no eggs and no baking means much less time spent in the kitchen. 


How to Soften Cream Cheese

The best way is to set it on the counter for 1-2 hours. If you forgot to plan ahead, you can also beat it with a hand mixer for about one minute OR heat in the microwave for 10-second intervals until softened.


Replacements for Cream Cheese (Results may vary)

  • Neufchatel
  • Mascarpone
  • Greek Yogurt
  • Ricotta
  • Silken Tofu
  • Sour Cream


No-Bake Cheesecake Tips

  • Use a cup to firmly press the crust
  • Refrigerate the crust so the butter will begin to solidify (or place crust-only in the freezer)
  • For the best clean slices, chill finished dish in the fridge for a few hours, overnight is best
  • Use a springform pan for a prettier presentation
  • Decorate with additional crushed cookies (will cover any cream cheese imperfections)
  • DO NOT freeze the cheesecake after the filling has been added (will affect texture)


No-Bake Peanut Butter Cheesecake with Gluten Free Oreos

Gluten Free Peanut Butter Oreo Cheesecake

Using just 7 ingredients, this gluten free peanut butter Oreo cheesecake is easy to prepare and impossible to resist!



  • 10-12 gluten free sandwich cookies
  • 2 Tbsp. butter, melted
  • 16 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 6 Tbsp. creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 c. milk or cream
  • 1/3 c. powdered sugar
  • 1/2 c. cream
  • 3-4 chocolate sandwich cookies, crushed (for topping)
  • In a small food processor, blend the sandwich cookies into small crumbs. Next, add the butter and blend until combined. Pour into a tart or pie pan. Using hands or a small dish or measuring cup, firmly press the cookie crumbs along the bottom and sides of the pan. Cover and refrigerate for 30+ minutes.
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese until creamy and smooth. In a small bowl, heat the peanut butter for about 20 seconds, until pourable. Beat in with the cream cheese. Then, add the milk and powdered sugar. Beat until very smooth.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, beat the cream until stiff peaks form. Fold into the cream cheese mixture. Next, pour into the prepared cookie crust. Use a spatula to spread evenly. Top with additional crushed cookies. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Best results after chilled for at least one hour, but more time is always better.
