Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownie Pie


I can't believe it. I just lost a HUGE post. uuuggghhhh how frustrating. It said that blogger autosaved, but it didn't. I am so bummed.

To make a long story short. Here is the recipe for my pie.

For the crust you will make a batch of Gluten Free Brownies. Divide the batter into three 9 inch cake pans. Bake for 15 minutes. Now you have two pie crusts ( one you can freeze for future use ) and another crust that you will divide in half and crumble for the topping. Cool the crust completely before filling.

Filling
  • 1 box firm silken tofu, drained
  • 1.25 c natural peanut butter
  • 1.25 c packed brown sugar
  • 1 t vanilla extract
  • ½ t cinnamon
  • 1 T instant coffee
  • 1 T balsamic vinegar
  • ¼ t salt 
Topping:
½  crust crumbled + ¼ t nutmeg
1 c chopped roasted peanuts
Method:
  1. Blend the ingredients in a food processor, scraping down the sides as necessary. 
  2. Spoon into pie crust and either freeze for and hour or refrigerate overnight
  3. To serve, sprinkle reserved crust and peanuts on top. 
  4. To gild the lily, add some chocolate sauce  or coconut whipped cream
If you click on the chocolate sauce link, you will also find my recipe for Sugar Free, Gluten Free Banana Bread which is really really good.

    I'm so sorry to hear you lost your post!! Yes, it's so annoying! If you still have any pie left, maybe eating a piece would help now? (I know it would help ME!!:)

    I will record this recipe in my new recipe book I dedicated to this purpose. When I find people to share it with, I'll make that out-of-this-world-looking pie.
