Peanut Butter Pie – Low carb & gluten free

Sharing is caring!

A low carb peanut butter pie made with a crust of almond flour that is very rich and delicious that you’d never know it’s keto and gluten-free! 

The beauty of this keto peanut butter pie is that it is great served cold and frozen. Served straight from the freezer it is like a creamy peanut ice cream pie. Chilled it is creamy and rich with a delicate almond flour crust. It is very rich so you may only want a small slice…well to begin with..!

I was in my local health food store and came across a couple of jars of natural, no sugar, no horrid oils added peanut butter on sale.  So I gave a jar a good home and made this peanut butter pie.  I used ground almonds for the crust which went surprisingly well with the peanut taste.  The pie is kept in the freezer and although you are meant to defrost it for 15 minutes before eating, myself and the Chief Taster happily munched many frozen pieces!  

Making the Keto Peanut Butter Pie

It is very rich so you may only want a small slice…well to begin with..!

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.

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.

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!

Is Peanut Butter Pie Keto?

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.

Can You Freeze This Peanut Butter Pie?

An absolute yes to freezing this pie. I cut mine into small slices, wrap in clingfilm and freeze so that I have an supple of easy to eat low carb pie on hand.

Peanut Butter Pie Tips

  • 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.
  • Almond flour can be used in place of peanut butter, as with any other nut butter.
  • Add sugar free cocoa powder to the almond flour crust for a peanut butter and chocolate combination.
  • Although rich enough by itself, serve with whipped cream or low carb cinnamon ice cream.

    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!

      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.
