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

by Pam on January 31, 2014

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!”

 

Peanut Butter Pie #Recipe #GlutenFree (A Year of Southern Cooking)
Recipe type: dessert, gluten free, low fat
Serves: 10
 

This gluten free, low fat version of a Peanut butter pie tastes as good as the original.
Ingredients
  • 2 (8 ounce) packages no fat cream cheese
  • 1 (16 ounce) container no fat whipped topping
  • ¾ cup reduced fat or all natural peanut butter
  • ½ cup artificial sweetener
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Instructions
  1. Add the cream cheese, vanilla and sweetener to a large mixing bowl. Beat until fluffy. Add the peanut butter and mix well. Add the whipped topping; mix well. Pour the filling in silicone cupcake holders or into an 8 inch round pie pan. Freeze for two hours.

Do you have a favorite peanut butter pie recipe that is gluten free? What do you eat when the need for sweets hits and you are dieting?

It’s a little small, so I would need at least three of them LOL. This sounds delicious.

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.
