Peanut butter and jelly pie is a dream come true! It's amazing how peanut butter cheesecake filling goes fantastically with jelly jam. Besides a wonderful flavor, this peanut butter jelly pie is nutritious too.
This peanut butter keto dessert is sugar free and full of wonderful nuts and cream cheese. My whole family loves this dessert and my kids especially.
If you ask me, this is probably one of my favorite keto desserts, but I am not subjective and whatever I decide to publish here on my site has to be delicious.
I treat these recipes seriously and I want my readers to be satisfied when they invest the time in making a dessert. However, to make this low carb peanut butter jelly pie, you don't need a tons of time. It's so quickly done and literally you can't fail, it's so easy to make!
HOW TO MAKE KETO PEANUT BUTTER AND JELLY PIE
Keto pie crust
For a proper pie, you need a flavorful low carb pie crust. This crust is so easy to make. I love to toast my almonds by myself and grind in a food processor together with some peanuts. Of course, to make your life easier, you can just buy ground, toasted almonds and mix them with ground peanuts. You'll save even more time!
When you combine together ground almonds and peanuts, add softened butter and sweetener, press ⅔ of the pie dough into the cake tray layered with a parchment paper.
It's useful to layer a cake tray because it is much easier to transfer the pie on a plate when it's done.
NOTE: you will need to set aside ⅓ of the crust dough for crunchy topping!
Low carb jelly jam
For this keto peanut butter jelly pie, you can use any strawberry, plum or blueberry jam or jelly you like. I use this keto blueberry jam or this strawberry keto jam, but I tried to use the same recipe to make low carb plum jam and it was wonderful!
The best flavor combination is definitely with strawberry or blueberry jelly. However, if you're not a type of preparing homemade jams, you may buy ready sugar free strawberry or blueberry jam or instant keto jelly.
Whatever jam or jelly you choose, just put it over the baked crust after it's cooled. Don't put it in still warm crust, because this pie crust is not firm when baked. It becomes firm when cooled.
Keto peanut butter cheesecake filling
This keto peanut butter cheesecake feeling is one of my favorite components of this low carb dessert. I was using the same or similar in few of my very popular recipes. Here you can check them.
This easy peanut butter cheesecake filling is so simple to make. Just mix or whisk together cream cheese with peanut butter, heavy whipping cream and sweetener and that's it.
⅓ of crust dough that you have set aside, you just need to crumble on top and bake in a preheated oven on 180 C/350 F for 10 to 15 minutes or until it gets nice and golden brown color on top.
When baked, sprinkle with 1 TBS of crushed salted peanuts and 1 TBS of dark chocolate chips and leave it in the fridge for few hours until completely cooled. It's the best to leave it overnight.
You may choose to decorate this yummy keto peanut jelly butter pie. It's optional, so you don't have to decorate, but it pays off! It's sensational when you add that flavorful cream with peanut butter on top.
I love to mix together heavy whipping cream with peanut butter and sweetener. Don't over mix it to avoid making butter. Use piping bag to put that cream on top and it will be spectacular!
Melt 1 or 2 TBS of dark chocolate with 1 TBS of heavy whipping cream in microwave and just drizzle with that chocolate the top of the cake. It's gonna be so good!
