Years ago, probably about 20 of them, I discovered low carb dieting and it helped me to lose the baby weight after having my daughter. In addition to losing weight in all the right places, I also noticed I felt great! My system seems to 'fire on all cylinders', so to speak, when I'm limiting my carb intake. I found a little paperback book for the Atkin's Diet and read it cover to cover. That book is where I found the recipe for this Low Carb Peanut Butter Pie. One taste and I was hooked! I got my neighbor hooked on this pie too. It seemed one of us always had it chilling in the fridge!

Over the years I've strayed from my low carb lifestyle, but for the past couple months I have been back on track and reaping the benefits. I have more energy, I'm more alert, my brain fog has lifted, and I've lost 30 lbs! Yep, I'm feeling great! I'm not advocating for a low carb diet, I'm just sharing what works for me. Not everyone reacts the same to limiting carbs, so be sure to listen to your body if you decide to go that route. It's always best to check with your doctor before making a lifestyle change.

To make this scrumptious treat I mixed peanut butter, cream cheese, and whipped cream together. Because I was sharing this with my mom and husband, I added a little bit of sugar substitute to sweeten it just a tad for them. And by little I mean one of those sugar packets like you put in your coffee. Yeah, it didn't need much. I suggest tasting it and adding sugar substitute a little at a time until it's as sweet as you like it, because we're all different.


Once I had it mixed up and tasting just right, I transferred it from the mixing bowl to a parchment lined 8x8" square pan and popped it in the freezer until set - about an hour. Then I store it in the fridge and enjoy a little piece each day. To serve I grated some chocolate on for garnish, but remember chocolate will add carbs, so be careful and use sparingly. Just a touch goes a long way! I look forward to the creamy goodness of this Peanut Butter Pie each day!

  1. Hello! This looks really yummy- I'm in Australia and we don't have cool whip- (although I do remember it as a kid!!) what can I use to substitute?

    1. Petra, any whipped topping will work. You could even make your own by whipping fresh cream. If you have a food processor, pour 1 cup of heavy whipping cream into the bowl and process for about 30 seconds until whipped. You can also do this with a mixer - it just takes a little longer. I hope that helps! ~Marion

    2. Thank you!! Do you happen to know the carb count?

      Delete
    3. Hi Petra, if the recipe is made using the ingredients as listed it has 2 carbs per serving. If you use a low sugar peanut butter instead of all-natural it will up the carbs to 5 or more. If you use homemade whipped cream, you don't add any carbs as heavy whipping cream is carb free. I hope that helps! Thanks for stopping by ~Marion

    4. Love the recipe! Just remember Heavy Whipping Cream is not carb free...one cup has 7-8 carbs!! The label can say less than one carb since the serving size is a tablespoon and they are allowed to do that!!! But the carbs add up!!

  2. This looks delicious!! Is there a crust in the picture, or does it separate?

    1. Thanks, Jan. Let me know how that works out. I think it would have to be stabilized to hold together.

    3. Hi Tiff, PB2 is a dehydrated peanut butter. It's in powder form. I have never used it, so I'm not able to give any type of review or recommendation it. ~Marion

    5. Faith Meyers, I'd love to try PB2 and am wondering how did you substitute it? Did you add water (like on the directions)? How much PB2 powder was needed? TIA

    2. Hi, I used all the right ingredients and I calculated it to be 4.5 carbs per serving!Where am I adding wrong?Thanks!

    3. It always varies depending on the ingredients, Paul, so it is hard for me to say. The 2 I calculate is net carbs. Are you calculating net carbs?

    1. Thank you, Carolyn. No, I did not give permission. I wasn't able to locate that website, though. I did an image search and found it on some others, so I will definitely do the takedown notice. I also did a search for a common phrase and didn't it find it that way either. Maybe the website was down when I looked, so I'll try again. You are so kind to take the time to let me know. I really appreciate it! Thanks so much :) Have a wonderful Sunday ~Marion

  9. This sounds yummy, but do you think it would work with almond butter instead of the natural peanut butter?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I have never tried it with almond butter, Mary Beth. I imagine the texture might be a little different. I'm not sure it would hold together as well, but I really don't know. I'd love to hear how it works for you! Thanks for stopping by today! ~Marion

  10. Hi there! I made this today using sugar free natural peanut butter and my own home made whipped cream. Whipped cream held together well and worked great with the peanut butter and cream cheese. I added powdered Swerve (sugar alternative) to sweeten it up a bit and I also added Lily's chocolate chips (this brand of chocolate chips does not contain sugar, is sweetened with stevia). I melted my chocolate chips just a little bit so that some sort of "ribboned" thru the peanut butter mixture but that there were little piece of chocolate chips as well. I tasted it before I put it in the freezer and it tasted great! This is an awesome recipe that will be perfect for that little bit of sweet I want after supper! Thank you for a great recipe!

  15. 8x8 pan, 16 servings. How tiny are these servings? I'm afraid I'd go way over my carb limit cause I'd want more than a taste.

  16. What is the fat count for this recipe?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. On a low carb diet, personally, I don't concern myself with fat calories, so I really couldn't say. You might want to try Googling nutrition calculator and adding the ingredients to get the fat count. It will be high.

    1. Tammy any all natural peanut butter works great. You can usually pick those up at health food stores or sometimes the deli in your local grocery store will carry it.

  18. Possibly a silly question but could I use whipped cream from the can?

    1. Erika, I have never tried that. I don't think it would hold together. That whipped cream breaks down pretty quickly once out of the can.
