Yum! Chocolate peanut butter cream pie!

Blake was in the mood for something sweet tonight and I went searching for a good pie recipe. I have a stellar low-carb pumpkin pie recipe and a really great raspberry cheesecake recipe, but I’ve made both of these a lot and it’s time for something new.

I stumbled across a few recipes for peanut butter cream pie and it sounded easy. I happened to have all the ingredients on hand to make it low-carb so I thought I’d try it out in my go-to almond pie crust. I had to make it my own, of course, so I added chocolate!

The pie turned out to be very good and definitely filled Blake’s need for something sweet! The whipped cream gives the pie a very light and fluffy texture that is just divine.

It is super rich and sinful, I recommend serving it with a glass of ice cold milk to wash it down. You may even want to serve a few berries on the side to cut the richness and give the pallet a break. Definitely cut this pie into small slices!

I chose to use smooth peanut butter, but you can use crunchy if you prefer. I think it would actually add a nice texture. You could also use any other type of nut or seed butter you like.

I think it would work just as well with almond or maybe even sunflower seed butter. You could get really crazy and try coconut butter too! I bet that would be incredible, chocolate coconut cream pie. OMG!

Same thing for the crust, any nut will do. I will often use walnuts instead of almonds. I think they give the crust a graham cracker taste. I chose almonds in this recipe because I added cocoa powder and I didn’t want it to be too bitter.

If you can handle dairy, give this chocolate peanut butter cream pie recipe a try and let me know what you think!

    Loved this! Super easy to make and delicious. The only change was that I toasted the almond meal first. Thanks for the recipe.
