Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

Chocolate Peanut Butter PieI was hungry for dessert last night, specifically chocolate and peanut butter.  Instead of going out and buying some ice cream, I decided to throw together a pie.  It turned out incredibly good.  (Since my wife is out of town it leaves the pie all to me.  Bad for my diet…)

Ingredients:

Crust

  • 1 Cup Old Fashion Oats
  • 1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 3 Tbsp. PB2 Chocolate (PB2 is a peanut butter powder e.g. no oil)
  • 20 Drops Stevia
  • 1/2 Cup Rice Milk

Filling

  • 1 – 5.25 oz. Cook & Serve Chocolate Pudding
  • 1 Cup Chocolate Chips
  • A little sugar free chocolate syrup to drizzle on top…

Directions:

  1. In a pie pan mix crust ingredients together.
  2. Press into pie pan like a normal crust.Pie Crust
  3. In a sauce pan, cook the pudding per the directions.Cook Pudding
  4. While it is cooking spread the chocolate chips on top of the pie crust.Crust Chips
  5. Once pudding is done, cool for 5 min in pan.
  6. Pour pudding into pie covering the chips.
  7. Refrigerate the pie for 2-3 hours.
  8. Enjoy (because I certainly am!)

PB&J Tofu Cheesecake

PBnJ Cheesecake PlatedI was really in the mood for cheesecake last night, but since I am on a diet I had to improvise, as usual.  I started with a generic tofu cheesecake recipe and made changes like replacing the sugar with stevia and adding extra vanilla/water to replace the oil.  (I didn’t make a crust, but crushing some graham crackers in the bottom of the loaf pans would probably been pretty good too.)

Servings:

2 Personal Loaf Pans (or 1 Small Pie Pan)

Ingredients:

  • 1 16 oz. Package Hard Tofu (Drained and Pressed for only 10 min)
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. Peanut Butter (I prefer natural without the added sugar.)
    • Update: The flavor was very subtle I think I’d use 3 Tbsp. or more next time.
  • 1 Tbsp. Coconut Oil
  • 2 Tbsp. Vanilla
  • 1/4 Cup Water
  • 20 Drops Liquid Stevia (or 10 Packets Stevia)
    • Update: My kids suggested sweetening it more. (Regular sugar would have made it sweeter.)
  • Jelly of Choice

Directions:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350.
  2. Put everything but the jelly in a blender and blend until smooth (Add extra water if necessary for your blender.  As a side note, I love my Vitamix.)
  3. Pour into pie pans leaving a space at the top of each.
  4. Bake for 15-20 min till top is starting to brown and is firm.
  5. Cool on a rack or a towel for 15 min.
  6. Spread jelly of choice (I choose strawberry.) on the top of each.
  7. Refrigerate until chilled or eat warm if you like… I couldn’t wait 🙂  PBJ Tofu Cheesecake
