Low-FODMAP No-Bake Peanut Butter Pie; Gluten-free

Print Friendly Version



Creamy Cheesecake Filling.

Cookie Crust.

As soon as I saw this recipe for a no-bake, frozen peanut butter pie, I knew that I had found my next dessert addition to the blog.

Low-FODMAP No-Bake Peanut Butter “Freezer’ Pie is a summertime recipe made for people like me.

Not only does it taste AMAZING, but this low-FODMAP Peanut Butter Cheesecake Pie is EASY!  It takes only a handful of ingredients, and no baking experience.

I use my low-FODMAP Hot Fudge Sauce to top this low-FODMAP Peanut Butter Pie, but if you have a commercial fudge sauce you tolerate, then feel free to substitute (avoid those with high fructose corn syrups).

Although this recipe has not been tested, a single serving should be low-FODMAP based on the ingredients

Serves: 16

Prep Time: 25 minutes (plus chilling 6 hours or longer)

Total Time: 25 minutes (plus chilling 6 hours or longer)

Equipment: 9 inch springform pan, parchment paper for lining


For low-FODMAP crust:

  • Low-FODMAP Chocolate Cookie Crust, pressed into a parchment paper-lined 9 inch springform pan and pre-baked per recipe
    • Some cookie crust recipes do not call for baking the crust, but I prefer to do so to ensure it doesn’t crumble too easily
    • Depending on the variety of cookies you use, you may need to adjust the amount of coconut oil or butter added to your crust recipe
      • A cookie like shortbread will need less coconut oil or butter added
      • This blog has great tips about how to use other cookies for a cookie crust

For low-FODMAP Peanut Butter Cheesecake filling:

  • 16 ounces lactose-free cream cheese, room temperature
    • I like to strain my lactose-free cream cheese overnight, to remove some liquid
      • The spreadable cream cheeses have a higher water content than block cream cheeses
      • This won’t impact the lactose-free quality of the product
  • 1 cup powdered/confectioner’s sugar
  • 3/4 cup smooth all-natural peanut butter (salted)
    • The recipe works best with ‘no-stir’ varieties of natural peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
    • 1/4 cup liquid form of heavy cream is one low-FODMAP serving
    • I have not tried it with canned coconut cream, but that should also work if you chill your cream beforehand
    • Hint: You can freeze unused portions of heavy whipping cream, see this link for tips on how!

For low-FODMAP Garnish:

  • Low-FODMAP Hot Fudge Sauce,  room temperature
    • You  can also use low-FODMAP Chocolate Ganache or your choice of store- bought chocolate sauce with low-FODMAP ingredients (if you use a chocolate ‘syrup’ instead of a premium chocolate ‘sauce’ it will not freeze properly.  Opt to drizzle the sauce on before serving instead)
  • Dark chocolate shavings, chopped peanuts, chopped dark chocolate peanut butter cups, chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, or dark chocolate peanut candies
    • I suggest chilling your chocolate before grating or chopping (especially the peanut butter cups)
    • Read ingredients to ensure your store-bought products are low-FODMAP


  1. If not already done so, prepare your low-FODMAP Cookie Crust and allow to cool
  2. Place a large mixing bowl and whisk attachments for your electric mixer (stand or hand) in your freezer to chill for the heavy cream
  3. In a second large bowl for your mixer, using paddle attachment, mix your lactose-free cream cheese with mixer on medium-low until creamy
  4. If you don’t have 2 bowls for your mixer, then prepare the whipping cream first and let it chill while you make the cream cheese mixture- see the 7th bullet point below
  5. Add the powdered sugar a little at a time, mixing well until incorporated
  6. Add peanut butter, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed to mixture is ensure well combine
  7. Set aside, then fit your chilled bowl on the mixer with whisk attachments
  8. Whip heavy cream until medium peaks form
  9. Fold the heavy cream into the peanut butter mixture gently
  10. Spread the peanut butter/cream combination over your pie crust
  11. Drizzle or spread room temperature low-FODMAP Chocolate Fudge Sauce over the top
  12. Freeze for 6 hours or longer (cover it well so it doesn’t get freezer-burn)
    • You can leave in the freezer for up to 1 week if desired
  13. Remove from freezer 20-30 minutes before serving
  14. Slice with a hot knife and garnish with chopped peanuts, chocolate shavings or chocolate chips, peanut butter chips or dark chocolate peanut butter cups

SOOO Good!

  1. Peanut butter heaven

    This is probably the best pie I have ever eaten. The whole family fought over the leftovers. Next time I will make two so that I can keep one in the freezer for later. Absolutely exceptional recipe. Thank you so much!!

  2. Safe for diabetics?

    My husband had this once and he absolutely loved it, but he’s recently been diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. Would you know how many carbs are in a serving? or if its safe for someone who is now on a keto diet.

    1. Hi Donna,
      We apologize, but we do not have the carb information for this recipe. There are apps available that we believe should help you. Good luck and thanks so much for the review!
