Raw Peanut Butter Cup Pie

Hey guys! So i was scrolling through Chocolate Covered Katie’s blog yesterday, and i came across a healthy, raw, peanut butter cup pie. When I ate junk food, my FAVOURITE chocolate was Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, so when i saw this recipe, i knew i had to try it.

IMG_8527 I have never made any raw desserts before, but i was up for the challenge. I’m so used to cooking and baking my healthy treats, that when the recipe said it didn’t even need to be baked, i was shocked! How can something so delicious looking be healthy AND raw? Well, let me tell you folks, raw desserts are to die for. And this dessert only took me a maximum of 15 minutes to make!

IMG_8539Katie’s recipe called for peanut butter, yogurt, stevia or sugar, salt, vanilla extract, cocoa, maple syrup, and coconut oil. As i was making the pie, i realized my mix was already sweet enough, so i didn’t add sugar/stevia, or salt. I also altered a couple more things with the recipe just because of ingredients and materials i had, so it’s not the exact same as hers. If you do wish to see hers, visit her blog: http://chocolatecoveredkatie.com/

What you’ll need: 2 bowls, cacao powder, pure maple syrup, coconut oil, all natural peanut butter, soy or dairy free yogurt, vanilla extract

Start off with your chocolate layer, which will be the base as well as the top.
1. In a bowl, add 2 tbsp of cacao powder.

2. Add 2 tbsp of pure maple syrup

3. Add 2 tsp of melted coconut oil

Pour it into a pan and spread it out so it covers the bottom, then stick it in the freezer for 10 minutes.2014-02-19 004 2014-02-19 005Next, you are going to do your peanut butter filling (my favourite)

1. In a large mixing bowl, add 1 and 1/2 cups of natural peanut butter

2. Add 2 cups of soy or dairy free yogurt

3. Add 2 tsp. of vanilla extract

4. Mix it all together till it’s thick and fluffy

Take the pan out of the freezer, and IF the chocolate is frozen (it should be) add on your peanut butter fluff, and spread it around.

Except this time, add an extra tbsp of coconut oil (total of 3 tbsp) and an extra tbsp of maple syrup. (total of 3 tbsp) with 2 tbsp of cacao powder.

2014-02-19 003 2014-02-19 002Once you have spread it all around your pan, and it’s pretty flat with the bottom layer, pour on your top final layer of chocolate. Stick it in the freezer and leave it in there for about half an hour. Once it’s frozen, take it out, cut it into pieces, and indulge in this healthy goodness. IMG_8532

      Why thank you!
      And yes, you can replace it with olive oil, i just used coconut oil because it’s healthier! She also used cocoa, sugar and salt in hers, where i used cacao, and didn’t add sugar or salt!
      It’s up to you whatever you want to put in 🙂

        I want to use coconut oil as well, but still haven’t bought it because it’s quite pricy here where I live. I like your recipe better, but I’ll try it out with olive oil! So curious how it’s going to turn out!

    Hi,
    This looks so good!
    I have one question about this so delicious looking dessert:
    How many pieces do you get out of it?

      About 8 pieces, depending on how big the slices are 🙂
