Peanut butter pie

Confession: Reese’s Pieces used to be my favorite candy. But now? THIS is my favorite pb+chocolate combo.Peanut butter pie

What is it about peanut butter and chocolate together? They are just made to be. A perfect match.Peanut butter pie

This pie is like a giant peanut butter cup– minus all the processed junk and chemical after taste. And NO dairy, gluten, or grains!

Just a few real, whole ingredients that you don’t have to feel guilty about enjoying.Peanut butter pie

Make this pie Paleo-friendly by simply swapping almond butter for pb. And you can use honey, too, if you like.

I would even add some almond extract to make the flavor pop! I’m gonna have to make that recipe soon because I love almond flavor, too! Stay tuned 🙂Peanut butter pie

    This looks incredible! Random question though, my stomach can’t handle coconut milk, what would be a good substitution? I’m fine with regular whipping cream, can that be used? Thanks.

    Dear Emily, I love your recipes, congratulations for all your wonderful idea!!! I am a diabetic Type 1 (LADA) and I am always careful about the carbs I am getting, I find that giving up carbs from bread, potatoes, pasta rice etc and taking it from fruits is working better for me…I would really appreciate it if you could give us a hint about how much calories each recipe has, given the fact that many of the ingredients you are using are healthy but rather high in fat..thank you and keep up the good work!!!!

      Hi Leto, Thank you so much. Adding nutrition facts on each recipe might be something I add in the future. But for right now, my favorite way to track macros is through MyFitnespal.com (I use the app). It’s really easy. You can paste the URL for the recipe, check the ingredients, then it gives you an instant nutrition breakdown.
