Cheesecake just makes sense on the keto diet, and this keto no bake peanut butter cheesecake is no exception. It will have your mouth watering and your feet heading for more!
While most peanut butter cheesecakes combine chocolate and peanut butter, this one leaves the chocolate out of the picture and gives the peanut butter a real chance to shine. This is definitely the peanut butter lover’s cheesecake of choice!
The crust uses peanut flour. Then the crust is topped with peanut butter cream cheese filling. On top of that goes the irresistible peanut butter sauce. Then, if you like, you can top that with chopped peanuts and whipped cream. Yum!

- Combine crust ingredients
Add all of the crust ingredients to a small bowl.
- Mix cheesecake crust ingredients
Mix the crust ingredients using a pastry blender or your hands till the mixture is the consistency of wet sand.
- Form the cheesecake crust
Empty the dough out into the bottom of a 9″ springform pan. Using your fingers, spread the dough out evenly across the bottom of the pan.
- Refrigerate while you make the keto no bake cheesecake filling
Place the finished crust in the refrigerator to set while you prepare the keto no bake peanut butter cheesecake filling.
- Start mixing the low carb no bake peanut butter cheesecake filling
Add the sour cream, powdered monkfruit sweetener, sugar free peanut butter, room temperature cream cheese, vanilla, and lemon juice to a mixing bowl and whip for 2 minutes until the mixture if fluffy.
- Prepare the unflavored gelatin
Add the packet of unflavored gelatin to the water in a small bowl, sprinkling evenly across the surface of the water. Allow to bloom for 1 minute.
- Add the unflavored gelatin to the cream cheese mixture and whip
Spoon the bloomed unflavored gelatin into the cream cheese mixture and whip for one more minute.
- Spread cheesecake filling in pan
Using a rubber spatula, spread the cheesecake filling on top of the crust in the bottom of the springform pan, smoothing the top as best you can.
- Make the keto peanut butter sauce
Follow the instructions for making the Keto Peanut Butter Dessert Sauce.
- Pour the peanut butter sauce on the cheesecake
Slowly pour the peanut butter sauce over the cheesecake, being careful to let only small drops drizzle over the sides. I usually pour the sauce in the middle and then use a rubber spatula to gently spread it toward the edges, allowing some to drip over the edges.
- Finish the cake
If desired, add chopped peanuts in a circle around the edge of the top of the cheesecake. Pipe whipped cream in dots in the middle of the peanuts in the same circle. Cut into 8 slices and enjoy!
