chocolate peanut butter cream pie

this is ALMOST raw... :) i don't mind the tofu. it's worth it. you know i'm a chocoholic and that i firmly believe chocolate and peanut butter are the greatest of friends and should spend as much time together as possible. so this hopefully explains itself.


i got my inspiration from here, but made some alterations. didn't use sugar, made a raw crust, and used raw peanut butter. i didn't have any raw chocolate but you could easily use that instead of conventional vegan chocolate. either way - you're in for a treat. i bet this would KILLA with banana. and if you wanna make it totally raw - use bananas instead of tofu! next time...


chocolate peanut butter cream pie: makes one pie

crust
1 cup walnuts
1 cup cashews
1/2 cup coconut chunks
1 cup dates/prunes

filling:
2 1/2 bars vegan/raw chocolate, melted
1/4 cup maple syrup/agave/date paste
14 ounces silken tofu
splash of non-dairy milk
2/3 cup raw peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
pinch of cinnamon

to make the crust, pulse all ingredients together in food processor until they form a ball, or you can press it together with your hands and it stays. press into bottom of your fave pie dish and stick it in the fridge.

to make the filling, blend all ingredients in your food processor or blender until smooth and freaking delicious, adding as much or as little "milk" as needed. scoop it into the pie pan onto the crust and put it back in the fridge for a couple hours to set. or if you can't wait (like me and my family) just eat it right away. it simply won't be as set, which is completely fine with me. enjoy!


for an alternate more RAW recipe: use 3-4 bananas instead of tofu. or if you don't like the taste of banana (you're weird) you could use 2-3 avocados. i took some prettier pictures the next day in the sunshine...

Emily, this looks AMAZING. I would definitely try this, and give the bananas a go (I love tofu but hey, I'm a student and this stuff gets expensive).

Emily von Euw said...

thanks ;) yeah i think i'd prefer it with bananas and maybe an avocado instead of tofu... i'll do it next time. mmm.

Emily von Euw said...

i agree, this looks great! I make a similar version without peanut butter - just chocolate - which is killer. I can only imagine how the peanut butter makes this uber luscious. :) Thanks for sharing!

Hello from the South of France

I'm trying this recipe tonight, but i don't have any coconut chunks ??? Do you have any advise for me ?

Emily von Euw said...

Just leave 'em out - it's okay :)

How much banana/avocado did you use when leaving out the tofu! I want to make this for my nephews 1st bday party this week :)

Emily von Euw said...

@Anonymous - use the same amount :)

Hi, just wondering if you know the measurement for the raw choc?

Thank you :)

Emily von Euw said...

@Anonymous - a little less than one cup, I think.

Is there a way to use cocoa powder instead of raw chocolate?

Emily von Euw said...

Of course :)

Linda English said...

Yeah, so excited to find this. I'm a New raw foodie so, I saw this and went straight to the kitchen to prepare but....I wanted to use raw cacao powder but don't have the proper amounts and hate living on the edge in a new arena. Maybe you could give some approximates for those of us who didn't have the raw bar chocolate. Thanks and I love your recipes and conversations that go along!
