Peanut Butter Pie Recipe Gluten Free (A Year of Southern Cooking)

Peanut butter pie, gluten free, low fat


Maybe it is because I live in Georgia, the peanut capital of the US, but no cookout, potluck or church dinner would be complete with a peanut butter pie. I actually have a collection of different peanut butter pie recipes and it is one of the recipes people request most often.  When my daughter had to adapt to a gluten free lifestyle, she still wanted to enjoy one of her favorite desserts. I adapted this version to be low fat and gluten free, but if you want to make it the traditional Southern way, simply substitute regular ingredients instead of low fat and add the mixture to a graham cracker pie crust.   I made mini cakes in silicone cupcake holders because they are so rich. These can be stored in the freezer and pulled out when you have a craving for something sweet.  These were such a hit with the kids and their friends that when one of them said they were full, another kid said, “I’ll take theirs!”

    I’ve never had peanut butter pie, but this sounds like a wonderful sweet idea! I’m going to make something different for our wholesalers for next Sunday (yes, they’ll be open on the Sunday before Valentine’s Day … bless them … so we can get their freshest roses). I take chocolate creations all the time. I think I’ll try this one for for them instead!

    p.s. I want to thank you for a post that allows me to “print” the recipe without having to print the entire blog. I’m not savvy enough to know how to do that, so I really appreciate it when you do it for me!

    I love, love, love peanut butter pie. Miss eating it so much that I could almost break down and try a piece sometime… I could use my stevia in this recipe and my Hubs could eat it then. I like your gluten free version.

    Such a nice presentation! That reminds me of an excellent way to end a meal at a fine dining establishment (which I’m always up for, but rarely get to frequent). :)

    Gosh! This looks so delicious that I want to eat it right now.. Peanut Butter is a favorite in our house hold and I know everyone would love it if I make this. Thanks for the recipe :)

    I would probably use all the low fat low sugar ingredients–then put the mixture into individual graham cracker crusts!! This sounds delicious!!!

    This is our FAVORITE pie ever! I make this for a lot of our gatherings and it is gobbled up. The fancy restaurant down the road charges $8 a slice for this! I can get 2 whole pies for that!

    We don’t have a need to factor in gluten free but when we come across a recipe that is, we definitely make note. I would have never guessed a peanut butter pie could be gluten free!

    You should totally invite me over next time you make this. So I can test it and make sure it’s not poisoned and is safe for your family. 😉
