IS PEANUT BUTTER PIE KETO?
This keto peanut butter pie recipe is so easy to make with a simple almond flour crust. The crust is a buttery almond flour delight that takes just 15 minutes to bake.
For the sweetener, we used allulose but any other low carb sweetener such as monkfruit or erythritol will work.
The peanut butter filling is a delicious combination of natural peanut butter, cream cheese and cream. I add cinnamon for a touch of warming spice, but this is entirely optional.
HOW TO MAKE A KETO PEANUT BUTTER PIE
You can happily make this keto peanut butter pie ahead of serving and keep it in the freezer. Either serve it straight from the freezer or allow it to defrost for 15 minutes before serving. Keep a pie in the freezer for parties and family gathering. Or a weekend!
Ensure that the peanut butter is sugar free. You could always make your own by processing peanuts in a food processor with a drop of coconut oil until you get a butter.
This peanut butter pie recipe is keto friendly as it has almond flour for the crust which is lower in carbs than traditional flour, and the cream cheese and peanut butter have the fat macros you need to keep in the keto zone! It is also sugar free and gluten free.
Mix the almond flour pie crust
Press down into a pie dish and bake

- Add sugar free cocoa powder to the almond flour crust mixture for a chocolate peanut butter pie. You may need to add an extra tablespoon or two of sweetener.

- Omit any spice and flavor with vanilla extract.
- Pour a chocolate ganache over the pie once it's firm and chill for another hour in the fridge for a chocolate topping.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Keep the pie covered and in the refrigerator. It should last up to 5-6 days.
Absolutely! This is also a great way to store the pie. Cut the pie into slices, wrap with clingfilm and they will last up to 3 months in the freezer.
Although the peanut butter pie filling is no bake, this pie can be easily made into a no bake pie but not baking the crust. Make it about an hour ahead and instead of baking, chill the pie crust in the fridge to firm up.
Swap the peanut butter with another low carb nut butter such as almond butter or macadamia butter.

I got a craving for peanut butter pie this weekend . I was excited to try this pie since most of the desserts I have made since going low carb, no sugar or gluten, haven’t been too good. This was delicious and really rich. My kids didn’t love it but my husband did. I used Swerve (half of what was called for in the crust), and I am going to to try freezing the pieces individually. Thank you!
Glad you enjoyed it! I found it froze really well and ended up eating frozen pieces from the freezer like an ice cream pie!
Just realized that I don't have any almond flour on hand. Can I use coconut flour instead?
You could, but adjust the quantities to about 1/3 to that of almond flour.
Are the servings for the pie really 4? Trying to figure out how it is only 7 carbs per serving. Peanut butter alone should take you over that.
It makes about 8-10 slices. I sliced mine fairly thin as it is very rich.
My family has a peanut butter pie recipe that has come down through the generations. Because I went low carb and gluten free I have not been able to partake these holidays. I can't wait to try this recipe out. Thanks for sharing!
Thanks!! Hope you enjoy it!
My grandmother passed away suddenly before she could write out our recipe. My family was heart broken but she was old school in her head. How different is this one from a non keto?
I'm sorry for your loss. I can't really say how different this is from a non keto, as the crust is not a flour one, but an almond flour.
