Keto Peanut Butter & Chocolate Pie – where have you been all my life? If chocolate and peanut butter is a combination that makes your heart (and stomach) flip, you’re going to love this creamy and decadent low carb peanut butter pie with a chocolate cookie crust. Seriously. ?????
If I’m being honest, chocolate and peanut butter is a combination that I’ve always been kind of meh about. It’s not that I don’t like it, I just don’t have the abiding love that some bloggers do for it. So there aren’t a lot of desserts here on IBIH that marry the two.
But that’s OK, because frankly this keto chocolate peanut butter pie is the only recipe you’ll ever need to get the best of both, in my opinion. The rich and creamy peanut butter filling, combined with a crunchy chocolate cookie crust, and topped with a drizzle of dark chocolate and slightly sweetened peanut butter sauce… AND toasted peanuts on top?!?! Be still my heart.
I can’t decide if I like this keto chocolate peanut butter pie better frozen or simply chilled. I love the creaminess when it’s soft enough to melt in your mouth, but also the ice cream like quality of the peanut butter filling when mostly frozen.
I’ll leave it to you to try it both ways and see which way you like it best!
You should know that this keto peanut butter & chocolate pie is pretty easy to make. It’s a press in crust, no rolling required, and it only has to bake for about 10 minutes – and that’s all the cooking that is needed for this almost no bake keto peanut butter pie.
The filling consists of an ultra creamy combination of peanut butter, vanilla, sweetener, whipped cream and mascarpone cheese (you can sub cream cheese but it’s not my favorite for this.)
The crunchy topping is optional I guess, but it adds so much flavor and texture that I highly recommend going the extra mile – and it makes a pretty garnish too.
I could go on and on about all the reasons why you should make this keto peanut butter & chocolate pie ASAP, but honestly, if you aren’t there already I don’t know how much more I can say about it to convince you!
If you do make this keto chocolate peanut butter pie, be sure to report back and let everyone know how it was – maybe your words will be just the push those fence sitters need to dooooo ittttt.
