Is there a better combo than peanut butter and chocolate? I’m here with a new keto dessert recipe that you are bound to love if you enjoy this classic combination as much as I do. No Bake Peanut Butter Pie. It’s as delectable as it sounds. It has a few names: low carb peanut butter pie, keto peanut butter pie, sugar-free peanut butter pie, frozen peanut butter pie… but they all mean the same thing. TONS of decadent peanut butter flavor in a creamy, cold dessert that’s sure to impress.
It’s sugar-free and super low in carbs (just 7 grams net carbs per slice!), but truly a dessert that everyone (no matter if they are low carb or not) will love. Which means there isn’t a bad time to make it.
This keto peanut butter pie recipe was originally published on June 21, 2019, but the cookies used in the original post (for the pie crust) are no longer available. The post was republished in August 2020 to update the ingredients with ones currently available and to answer some additional recipe questions.
How To Make No Bake Peanut Butter Pie
This low carb peanut butter pie recipe has a few steps, but they all come together quickly and easily! The prep time takes about 15 minutes, with some chilling and freezing time in between.
- Make the frozen peanut butter pie crust. Process peanut butter and double chocolate cookies in a food processor, until crumbly. Then, add butter and powdered allulose and process again, until the mixture is crumbly and uniform.
TIP: Stick to powdered sweetener, not granulated. Since this is a no bake peanut butter crust, it might be a bit grainy if you use granulated.
- Chill the dough. Then press into pie pan and freeze crust for 20 minutes.
- Mix up the healthy peanut butter pie filling. Using a mixer, beat together peanut butter, cream cheese, and powdered allulose. Beat in vanilla and heavy cream, until the filling reaches the consistency of frosting.
- Make whipped cream. Beat the whipping cream until stiff peaks form…
…Then gently fold whipped cream into the peanut butter mixture.
- Fill the crust and freeze. Use a spatula to spread the filling over the pie crust, then freeze for at least an hour.
TIP: If you freeze it for too long and it gets rock hard, just let it sit on the counter until it’s soft enough to cut but still firm.
- Add toppings. These are optional, but make the pie look really pretty! I topped mine with more crumbled peanut butter and chocolate cookies to add a little crunch… so good! A drizzle of melted peanut butter or sugar-free chocolate would also be delicious.
Low Carb Peanut Butter Pie FAQs
Is peanut butter pie healthy?
This gluten free chocolate peanut butter pie is decadent and rich, but has great nutrition stats. Each slice has 314 calories and just 7 grams net carbs.
Can I use a different sweetener?
I highly recommend Besti Powdered Allulose for the best low carb peanut butter pie. If you don’t have it, my keto sweeteners guide has other options you can compare – and use the sweetener conversion chart to find out how much to use of whatever sweetener you have. Just make sure it’s powdered.
What kind of cookies can I use for the crust?
The cookies I used for this pie when I first made it in 2019 are no longer available. I now recommend these cookies (combination of double chocolate and peanut butter flavors!), and the recipe card below has the right amount of these to use. Enter code WHOLESOMEYUM for 15% off the cookies.
Is there another crust option without using cookies?
Sure! You can make almond flour pie crust instead, with the same filling. To make it a no-bake crust, replace the egg with an additional 2 tablespoons ghee or butter.

No Bake Peanut Butter Pie Crust:
Sugar-Free Peanut Butter Pie Filling:
Tap on the times in the instructions below to start a kitchen timer while you cook.
Place the cookies into a food processor. Pulse until they are the consistency of crumbs.
Add the butter and powdered sweetener and pulse again, just until uniform and crumbly.
Chill the dough in the fridge for about 15 minutes, until it's less sticky and easy enough to work with.
Press the cookie dough into the bottom of the pan and up the sides of a 9-inch (23 cm) pie pan, to form the crust.
Freeze the crust for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a large, deep bowl, beat together the peanut butter, cream cheese, and powdered sweetener for about 2 minutes, until fluffy. Beat in the vanilla extract. Beat in approximately 6 tablespoons (88 mL) heavy cream, 1 tablespoon (15 mL) at a time, until it reaches the consistency of thick frosting. The amount of cream you need will vary depending on how thick your peanut butter was, so just keep adding 1 tablespoon (15 mL) at a time until it's like a thick frosting.
In a second bowl, beat 3/4 cup (177 mL) heavy cream, until stiff peaks form. Fold the whipped cream into the peanut butter mixture.
Transfer the filling into the pie pan over the crust.
Freeze for at least 1 hour, until firm. Keep frozen, but let it sit on the counter to soften slightly if it's too hard right out of the freezer (similar to an ice cream cake). If you like toppings, you can add melted peanut butter drizzle, melted chocolate drizzle, and/or more cookies crumbled on top (all of these are optional).
