Skinny No-Bake Peanut Butter Pie


Low Fat Peanut Butter Pie

Light and creamy and ever so addicting! Whip this up in minutes for a dessert everyone will love. It's Peanut Butter Lover's Day (who knew!) so I thought I would revive this from the archives, one of my favorite desserts!


I don't know about you but I love pie! Fruit pies, banana pie, pumpkin pie, pudding pies, and high on my list... peanut butter pie. To keep it light I used Better n' Peanut Butter which is available at Target, Trader Joe's, health food stores and online.

Drizzle the top with a little chocolate syrup right before serving and you will enjoy each and every last bite!

    2. i really hate the taste of that pb i rather use pb2!

    3. By accident I put the whole 8oz cream cheese in. So then I left out a little of the whipped topping. I t came out great, very nice texture. More like cheese cake.

    4. Can i use an alternative type of pb? I cant find better n peanut butter

    5. I made this with Biscoff spread and its amazing

  3. This looks very much like cooking lights peanut butter pie! It is delicious. Just bought better n peanut butter at trader joes.

  4. Can you use fat free cream cheese instead?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I made it once w/ fat-free but I notice the taste is off and it did not mix as well in my mixer. I try to stick with the low-fat cream cheese. My husband noticed the difference most but this is his favorite pie.

      Delete
    2. You could try using half low fat & half cream cheese and half fat free cream cheese if you really want to reduce the fat content more than the original recipe. The flavor of fat free cream cheese is definitely not the same as neufchatel or low fat cream cheese, but I seriously limit my total fat intake due to a gall bladder stones. This compromise works for me.

  5. I just made this recently w/ a recipe found on WW's website. Only difference is they did not add any sugar or the chocolate syrup but it was so yummy. Hubby's favorite.

  17. Can you use regular peanut butter? JIFF??

    ReplyDelete
  18. This looks great Gina! I love peanut butter. I just need to figure out how to make only one serving of this at a time because I would eat the whole pie by myself.

    1. I am worried about the same problem, but I'm going to try to make this and freeze individual portions, I'll post how they hold up!

      Delete
    2. My single-girl version of this is:

      2 tbs of chocolate PB2
      2 tbs of softened whipped topping (I use fat free)
      2 graham crackers (two whole sheets = 1 serving)


      Whip together the first two ingredients with a fork until smooth.
      Break apart your two graham crackers so that you have four squares.

      Spread the filling on two squares, top with the other two. Pop them in the freezer to firm up. Voila! Mini peanut butter piewiches that don't call to you from the fridge because there's a lot leftover. Weight Watchers puts this as 5 Points+ for the two of them.

    3. Freezing is a good idea but it still ends with me eating all of them. :)

  22. This sounds so good! Do you think you could substitute PB2 for Better n Peanut Butter?

    1. I was wondering the same thing! Just discovered PB2 and can't wait to use it in a recipe. Have family visiting on the 3rd so I think I will give it a try using the PB2. I will have a backup dessert....just in case! Thanks Gina for all your fantastic recipes!

    2. pb2 is AWESOME and I use the chocolate kind to make this pie (among other things). Go for it.

      Delete
    3. Absolutely, Just be sure to use 1/3 Cup of RECONSTITUTED PB2 when you measure - as opposed to measuring 1/3 Cup of the dry pb2 powder.

  26. What could I use instead of the whipping stuff? I'm in the uk! Whipped cream? Egg whites? X

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Whipped cream is best but it will increase the points. Maybe you can do 1/4 cup of cream and increase the peanut butter. It will change it slightly.

      Delete
    2. Will switching confectioners sugar for splenda ruin it?

      Delete
  27. Wonder if Sunbutter would work instead of peanut butter?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Sure, but the taste is slightly different.

      Delete
    2. I made it with Sunbutter since my son is allergic to peanuts. I love Sunbutter and find it to be the closest nut butter substitute for PB. So, I've only made it with Sunbutter and can't compare, but the Sunbutter version was delish. I used just a bit more cream cheese since SB is a little thicker.

  28. Love! I don't think I'd be sharing this pie:-)

  29. I have made this and it's WONDERFUL! I have made my own FF crust and made individual ones in muffin tins. They freeze well. If I didn't, just hand me a fork and the entire pie = 1 serving. It's soooo good! thank you for reminding me to make again.

    ReplyDelete
  30. This is one of my favorite desserts, thanks so much for developing this lite version! I do have some Better 'N Peanut Butter that I've been dying to make something with, and this is it...I adore your No Bake Cheesecake (just made another one yesterday), and instead of the crust, I just lightly spray my dish, sprinkle in some graham crumbs, and coat the dish with the crumbs. Works great, you still get a "tiny" bit of crust, and a little bit lighter even! Thanks again, Gina...your site is my fave!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I just love how you show pictures in the steps to making the recipes. This really helps me. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  32. This was delicious! Instead of making a pie, I sprinkled the gramham cracker crust in a parfait glass and layered everything using fresh cut strawberries and blueberries. It made a really pretty presentation.

    ReplyDelete
  33. My husband LOVES peanut butter and chocolate, so i'm thinking this might be a nice treat to try out. :) Instead of using Better 'N Peanut Butter, i might try with homemade peanut butter? Not sure how that will turn out, but hopefully it will be as delicious as this one looks!

  34. Jennifer Granzow2/27/12, 9:34 AM

    Oh, yum! I'm going to try to make it with PB2. Peanut Butter Pie is one of my favorites, and this is a huge treat to find a light version so I can indulge without guilt. Thank you!

  35. Gina, thanks for this recipe!

  36. can you substitute splenda for the confectioner's sugar?

    ReplyDelete
  37. Alright, I have a question for you. Is there a substitute for cream cheese? I absolutely can't stand the taste of cream cheese (and even when people /swear/ that you can't taste it, I always seem to be able to...). I was wondering if there was a substitute for cream cheese in this recipe? Perhaps greek yogurt? I'm not sure. But this looks so good I want to try it. ;~;

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Maybe marscapone? I do think its a bit smoother, not as firm but it may work?

      Delete
    2. I don't think the yogurt is thick enough. I can't taste it in the recipe.

      Delete
    3. Try silken tofu! It has less of a tangy flavor. There is some other food blogger around here who is a vegan who uses that. I think you would have to put it in a blender or food processor to get it smooth enough though. I think the blog is Chocolate-covered Katie.

      Delete
    4. Yes, I have used silken tofu for a few pies, yummy!

  38. Definitely gotta try this recipe! And also thanks for recommending the Better'n Peanut Butter! I just bought some from Harris Teeter(it was on sale :-)) and it is delicious! Tastes so good & you can tell it's natural. I had it on a english muffin w/ breakfast. Thanks!

  39. There is an awesome alternative PB called PB2. It's in powder form and you add water to make it the consistency you desire. Real peanuts. All natural. 45 calories (instead of 200)! Google it!

  44. I'm curious if you know of any good reduced fat graham cracker crust recipes?

    For some reason everytime I buy the premade ones they taste a little metallic like, I think because of the aluminum foil container? I know it's a little weird :) but If you have any ideas of a good one comprable in nutrition info I would love to hear. Thanks!

    1. If you go the their website you can enter your zip code and it will give you a list of locations

      It might not list them all but it should give you a starting place ( I've seen it at a few stores that aren't listed when I entered in my zipcode)

  64. Is it possible to get a break down of the fat information? Saturated/polyunsaturated/monounsaturated, trans fat? I want to make this for my husband but he limits his saturated fat to 1-2% recommended daily serving per any meal and no trans fat and won't eat anything containing anything hydrogenated. If you can't break it down that's all right, I'll try looking at all the ingredients. Thanks!

    I made this last night...forgot to put the chocolate on it before I served it to my husband,but it was amazing nonetheless! Can't believe how much peanut-ty taste that 1/3 cup of Better 'n' Peanut Butter added to the pie! And we're thrilled we can have our favorite dessert for so many fewer calories without sacrificing the flavor!

  77. I made this yesterday. It was very good. Light. But it was very soft. I think next time I will stick it in the freezer just before sitting down to dinner to firm it up a little without being totally frozen .

  78. I'm so happy I was in the day a co-worker brought this to share. I would have never know there was anything fat free or reduced in this dessert and was pleasantly surprised that the peanut butter wasn't overpowering. Delicious! I'm fortunate that my husband doesn't like anything with peanut butter because this would disappear very quickly around here.

  80. Hey Gina I was at the store getting the things to make this and bought Chunky Biscotti Cookie spread instead of peanut butter since its lower in points 2 points a TBSP and its a great alternative to peanut butter and its Vegan too. Don't know if you have tried this yet?

  83. I made this yesterday and it was honestly the best peanut butter pie I've ever had. I made a few changes, 1/4 cup powdered sugar and 2 packets of truvia, pb2, and about 4 tbsp of unsweetened cocoa powder. I also stuck mine in the freezer and set it out 20 mins before serving. No one had a clue it was "light".

  84. Yummy! Just mixed it up (so quick and easy!) and I'm waiting for the next 2 hours to pass quickly so I can officially taste-test!

  86. Made this yesterday for the 1st time and am addicted. I love the Better N Peanut Butter and this is a great way to use it. It tastes so good but as others, I will put it in the freezer next time. I put it in the fridge for 6 hours and when I went to cut me a slice last night, the pie collapsed. I put it in the freezer but am sure that it all filled up the empty area that I took and is all disheveled now. It just didn’t firm up like it should when put in the fridge.

  87. I am hosting a table at our church's spring Women's Event and am thinking about making this. If I end up making it, I plan to serve it in those cute chocolate bowls listed on Pinterest.

    What is the difference between regular peanut butter and the Better N Peanut Butter? I've never heard of it.

  90. I made this tonight and am in LOVE! One big thing I changed though...I used Biscoff Spread instead of PB...Biscoff is the airline cookie in spreadable form and if you haven't tried it yet you are missing out! One warning though, it's highly addictive :) It probably raises the points as opposed to using Better N PB (Biscoff is 2pts+ for one tablespoon) but it's SO worth it

    ReplyDelete
  91. This tastes wonderful, but is a gooey mess after 3 hours in the fridge. It's in the freezer now in attempt to firm up. Regardless, it won't keep us from eating it! Yum!

  93. I had to use Skippy Natural PB rather than the one you recommended. I found the mixture of sugar, cream cheese and peanut butter to be very lumpy rather than smooth. I measured everything and the sugar/cream cheese mix was smooth before the PB so I'm thinking it was the peanut butter that didn't incorporate well. When I folded in the whipped topping, the peanut butter mixture was too lumpy and I just couldn't get it smooth. I served the pie the next day and it was a big hit, it tasted good and the consistency was okay. I'd definitely make it again even if it comes out lumpy!

    ReplyDelete
  94. If made using PB2 instead of Better n Peanut Butter, would you use 1/3 c. of PB2? Less? More?

    This sounds amazing and I can't wait to try it! I have recently discovered PB2 and LOVE it! And there is no TJ near me to get BnPB.

  95. Made this on the weekend and it was a hit. Couldn't find the Better n Peanut Butter (not sure if it's sold anywhere in Canada), so I used light PB. Had quite a strong PB flavour, but that was fine with me! Thanks for the great easy recipe!

    ReplyDelete
  96. I made this for a BBQ this weekend. I used the PB2 - same amount as the recipe calls for (1/3 cup) - just followed the directions on the jar to mix it with water and make 1/3 cup. I didn't have a problem with it being gooey or collapsing after being in the fridge, although I made it the night before so maybe that's why. Anyway, this was AMAZING, everybody loved it and was asking for the recipe. I will DEFINITELY be making this again for future parties, and I'm thinking about trying it with the chocolate PB2. It tasted like a candy bar.. and next time I may also try freezing it just for a different texture. But it is amazing!!

  97. I made this for a cook out. It was a hit everyone wanted the recipe thank you so much. You made it easy for me to keep my points.

  98. To the comment about it coming out lumpy - make sure you use an electric mixer. You will never get it smooth if mixing by hand.
    To the comment about the Hungry Girl Pie - she uses fat free cream cheese, which I have to say is disgusting. I love that Gina never skimps on the flavor and still manages to make things lowfat.

  99. Made this last night and it is WONDERFUL!!! I have tried at least 20 of you recipes and have Never been disappointed. Thanks SO much!!!

  100. I just made this for the fourth time tonight.. it's fantastic. This time I used Peanut Wonder which seems to be identical to Better n Peanut Butter in nutrition and taste, and was available in a store closer to my house. With all these healthier alternatives, I can't imagine eating regular peanut butter ever again! I froze the pie as I can never seem to get it to firm up in the fridge. It's just as delicious as a softer mousse-like dessert, but harder to portion.

  101. Hi
    I made this last night for my fiance's birthday - we are getting married soon and both trying to lose weight. When I first made it I thought it tasted very cream cheesy but after leaving it in the fridge for a few hours like the recipe says - it tastes amazing!!! Great Job!!!

    1. Did you use fat free cream cheese? I found that harder to work with.

  103. I live in Canada not able to find Better n peanut butter.....would light peanut butter work in this recipe?

    1. Yes, it may increase the fat but it will work.

  104. Has anyone found a chocolate crust option that would be the same points?

    ReplyDelete
  105. I made this pie yesterday & have to say it is fabulous! Instead of a graham cracker crust, I chose to make chocolate chip cookies and use them as the crust, which turned out to be a really good idea. They came out great. Also I turned them into mini pie to further lower the calorie count. If you'd like to check out my recipe here is the link: (http://thesweetprimadonna.com/2012/08/15/mini-skinny-peanut-butter-pies-with-chocolate-chip-cookie-crust-130-calories/) Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe!

  106. I was skeptical about this, but it was fantastic! Thank you!

  107. heyy .. can i use blueberry or strawberry to replace the peanut butter ??

    ReplyDelete
  108. Used biscoff spread instead of better'n peanut butter due to peanut allergy and this is still amazing! Slightly more fact/calories but still yummy!

    ReplyDelete
  109. Can you use Splenda or Truvia instead of the confectioners sugar?

    ReplyDelete
  110. Made this last night and it was delicious! It reminded me of the Spicy Cajun Pasta dish that was once on TGI Friday's menu, only this is better-full of flavor and more healthful. Thank you for developing a healthier version of an old favorite.

  115. Can u use any type of peanut butter for this. It looks amazing heavenly and cant wait to make this.

    ReplyDelete
  116. The pie sounds good, but it seems silly to use what appears to me to be fake peanut butter. Why not use the simple, homemade stuff that is just ground up peanuts? It is lower in calories than commercially made peanut butter because it has no sugar and no added oil. Peanut butter is very easy to make if you have a food processor. You just need to let the processor run long enough to extract the oil.

  117. Hi Gina, Love your site and cook many of your recipes but .... live in UK and whilst i am normally quite adept at converting to UK ingredients im stumped this time. If any of your readers could help with UK equivalents to the whipped topping, graham crackers and peanut butter used i would be very grateful as this looks gorgeous. Thanks

  118. I'm not sure if I have commented on this one yet, but my 13 year old son asks for one of these pies every weekend. :) And thank you for turning me on to Better n Peanut butter. I love it!

  120. Does anyone else seem to notice that the Hershey's Chocolate syrup she recommends has the first two ingredients listed as "HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP; CORN SYRUP..."?
    (https://www.thehersheycompany.com/brands/syrup/hersheys-chocolate.aspx)

    Is there a healthier chocolate syrup recommendation you can give?

    1. Make your own! It's really simple and tastes SO much better: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/cocoa-syrup-recipe/index.html

  121. FYI: Making this with reduced fat PB (all we have). 10 slices will be 7 points plus each. 8 slices will be 8 points plus each.

    ReplyDelete
  122. Gina - have you tried Just Great Stuff's organic powdered peanut butter? The fat has been taken out through a dry roast process and it taste BETTER than better'n PB. AND its only 45 cals per TBS and 1.5g of fat!!!

    You can than me later ;) Maybe send a shout out to my blog?

  124. I LOVE peanut butter pie. The hubs, however, hates it. And so I have to make small servings for myself. Usually I just throw everything together right beforehand in a small bowl and sprinkle some cookie crumbs on top. Perfection!

  126. I bet Dream Whip would work in place of the whipped topping.
    It's shelf stable powder you mix with milk to make a whipped dessert topping.
    I checked and Tru whip is not available in my state at all, but Dream Whip is available everywhere!
    This will be our dessert tonight!!
    Thanks Gina for all you do, your site/recipes are extremely helpful!

  127. I wonder if you could use PB2 (powdered peanut butter that is 1 point for 2 tablespoons) instead to make it less points. I bet you could.

  133. I made this today. Used PB2 powdered peanut butter (6 Tbsp PB2 & 3 Tbsp of water = 1/3 cup of PB) & tried out TruWhip for the first time (my store didn't carry the light TruWhip but I'm all about no HFCS so I used the real stuff). I'm a TruWhip convert. :) This pie was delicious! I put it in the freezer cause I preferred it a little more solid. Yum-Yum-Yum! Thanks for another great skinny recipe!

    ReplyDelete
  134. I made this and only had low fat Truwhip. The consistency is really more thin than I was thinking. I'm thinking that I should put it in the freezer instead of the fridge or else it won't hold up when I cut it. Do you think it would be good as a frozen pie?

    ReplyDelete
  135. Made for family get together today, everyone loved it! (Even the not so health conscious one!) I did cheat a little and got Reese's minis that I finely chopped and incorporated into the filling just for a little extra texture :) YUMMY!

    ReplyDelete
  136. Could also make this with Walden Farms' Whipped Peanut Spread. It's 0ppv with 0 Fat, Carb, Fiber, Protein. They also have a Chocolate Dip that is also 0/0/0/0. Both are thinner than the Better'n PB but the flavor is there. I found these at Publix right next to the Better'n PB.

  137. Okay, so I made this recipe (minus the hershey's syrup), then I added up the calories and divided by eight. With EXACTLY the same ingredients, it came out at 253 calories per serving, not 216. Wondering how she got the calorie count. I even tried calculating using slightly different brands of whipped topping, cream cheese, etc. They all came out at about 253 per serving. And that's WITHOUT the hershey's syrup. So beware, this is not as low in calories as is posted. That being said, it was quite delicious!

  138. I just made this and let it sit overnight in the fridge. The next day it still was more like mouse and not pie like. It totally did not set up right. Any thoughts? It still tasted good, it was just a mouse instead.

    ReplyDelete
  139. Usually I make your recipes as they're written.
    I made this today and used pb2, reduced fat cream cheese, fat free chobani vanilla Greek yogurt, light truWhip. I did not add sugar and I was able to stretch the filling making two pies out of this lessening the fat/calorie per slice.

    It was amazing and I'm so thankful tat there's more in the freezer!!
