Keto Peanut Butter & Chocolate Pie

THIS KETO PEANUT BUTTER & CHOCOLATE PIE BOASTS A CREAMY PEANUT BUTTER FILLING AND A CHOCOLATE COOKIE CRUST.  LOW CARB, EGG FREE, GLUTEN FREE. The keto diet has been quite popular for a while now. I actually started it a few years ago and have had great success with it. I lost over 60 pounds and have kept it off. At first, I stuck to a very strict keto way of eating, but now I eat a wide variety of foods, including dessert! I love peanut butter and cream cheese which are both keto-friendly so I whipped up this rich, delicious Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Pie. It has a peanut no-bake crust that’s filled with the peanut butter and cream cheese mixture. If you don’t tell anyone this is low carb, high fat and sugar-free, they will never know!
