No Bake Peanut Butter Pie

Oh my!  This pie is SO good.  Of course that is just my opinion.  The recipe is by Chocolate-Covered Katie “The Healthy Dessert Blog”.

First comes the crust. So easy and no kidding it is theRidiculously-Easy Chocolate Pie Crust“.

Ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder (or cacao powder)
  • 1/4 cup raw cashews (or almonds, walnuts, pecans, or macadamia nuts)
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut (unsweetened) 
  • 1/16 tsp salt
  • scant 1/4 cup pitted dates (4 small dates)

Katie has nutritional information and substitutes on her blog.  I used almonds in mine, mixed it with my Ninja and it worked great.  

Then comes the filling.

  • 1 cup peanut butter (230g) (Or another nut butter, or Sunbutter)
  • 3 medium bananas (300g) 
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp salt 
  • 1/4 cup virgin coconut oil, melted (Can sub with 1/4 cup extra pb; the texture will just change) (50g)
  • stevia extract to taste, or 3-4 tbsp powdered sugar, or liquid sweetener (such as pure maple syrup)

Again Katie has nutritional information and substitutes on her blog. I used natural peanut butter and Agava for the sweetner.

This sure does my sweet tooth good, its not full of bad fats, and has some healthy ingredients.
