Do you like cream pies? Oh, I love keto cream pies and I love peanut butter. Peanut butter is great ingredient you can use in keto baking and especially in keto desserts.

Keto peanut butter pie is delicious choice for any occasion, weekend baking, birthdays or when you just want some no guilt sweets.

Peanut butter pie goes great with a cup of coffee. I love it on a weekend’s mornings. Usually I don’t have breakfast but during the weekend I wake up before others and I have 2 hours until they wake up.

So, I enjoy my long coffee time with a slice of good keto cake. And there’s nothing better than a slice of creamy keto pie to enjoy.

This cake is favorite to my keto kids also! They are not on keto all the time, they also eat some fruits and their food is more paleo with diary. We don’t have sugar and sugary products in our house, only keto desserts. Of course, as sugar is everywhere we can’t avoid sugar when we are visiting family but we try to have sugar free home definitely.

I notice how they behave strange and irritating when having some non-keto sweets during the visits of family and friends. When eating keto sweets, I don’t observe that.

Tips to make keto peanut butter cream pie

Chocolate low carb crust is combination of blanched almond meal, low carb sweetener, melted butter and unsweetened cocoa with a small pinch of salt. Put that pinch of salt when you prepare something with cocoa or chocolate. Salt elevates chocolate flavor and gives special touch to chocolate desserts.

Peanut butter filling is the best if you combine unsweetened smooth peanut butter, mascarpone cheese, sweetener and vanilla extract. Rum or rum extract works good in this combination too.

Rich chocolate ganache is so easy to make. Just bring heavy whipping cream to boil, remove from the heat, pour over the dark chocolate, whisk well until combined and smooth, and voila! You have delicious, rich and creamy ganache.

To make keto chocolate ganache, use dark unsweetened chocolate with more than 80% coco and add some low carb sweetener. Great alternative is to use dark chocolate already sweetened with stevia or erythritol.

As you can see on the photos of this peanut butter keto pie, I put some chopped wolfberries or goji berries and chopped peanuts on top jut to garnish. It looks better on photos! 🙂

    Hands-down the best keto dessert I have ever made. I added a little more chocolate to the ganache so I set up a little bit better. The first time I made it the pie, the ganache was more like a pudding, so I agree that a little extra chocolate makes it set up a little bit better. Even our non-keto friends raved about how delicious this pie is. I have been keto for six years and I’ve tried many many many recipes, again, hands-down this is the very best dessert I have ever made on a ketogenic diet. Thank you so much for creating a keeper for our family.

      Hi Rachel, I buy smooth unsweetened peanut butter in a local store. I am in Europe. Just look for unsweetened withouth added sugar or oil.

    This is absolutely amazing and thank you for sharing. I shall definitely be making again. May I just check the amount of butter in the crust (80g) as my base was very runny and took 30 mins to bake. Many thanks. TC

      Hi, well, next time you can reduce the amount. It depends on almond meal and cocoa also. If one of these contain more fat you may reduce the amount of butter. It depends a lot of type of almonds, brand, etc. Thank you for your comment! I am happy to hear that you love it! 🙂

    I too was worried about the ganache setting up and ended up tossing another 20g of chocolate into it – but it turned out amazing. I didn’t have enough mascarpone so I subbed half cream cheese and it’s not even noticeable. This is one of the best keto desserts I’ve made and we’ve been keto for almost 4 years now!

    This was utterly awesome! I can honestly say I was skeptical as the ganache was extremely runny, but other than that, it was VERY VERY good. One of the best low carb desserts I’ve made yet.
