A friend of mine shared this recipe with me over a year ago. I fell in love at first bite! Chocolate and peanut butter are one of my favorite combinations. This pie is a no bake version made with coconut oil. The only sweetener is maple syrup. It is rich and delicious and you will want to cut small pieces when serving.Peanut Butter Pie

Peanut Butter Pie

Crust:
1 ½ cups almond meal
¼ cup cocoa powder
¼ cup maple syrup
3 Tbsp coconut oil
Pinch of salt

Filling:
1 cup of all-natural peanut butter (can also use almond butter!)
¾ cup water
½ cup melted coconut oil
½ cup maple syrup

¼ tsp sea salt

Chocolate Topping
2 Tbsp melted coconut oil
2 Tbsp maple syrup
3 Tbsp cocoa powder

Line an 8 inch spring form pan with parchment paper. To prepare the crust, combine all the crust ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Press the dough evenly into the bottom of the spring form pan. Set aside.

To prepare the filling combine the ingredients in a mixer bowl and blend until smooth. Pour the filling over the top of the crust. Place the pie in the freezer to set until firm. Once firm combine the chocolate topping ingredients and pour over the top of the pie. To create the marbled effect pour the chocolate topping over the top of the filling before it is firm and use a knife to swirl the chocolate and create a marbling effect. Peanut Butter PieTake the pie out of the freezer an hour or so before serving to make it easier to cut.Peanut Butter Pie

Almond meal? Could that be described as ground almonds?

Nancy Wolff on July 1, 2016 4:26 pm

Katharine,
I looked this up for you, “Almond meal is generally a coarser grind made from almonds that almost always still have their skins, so you’ll see flecks of the skin in the meal. Almond flour is ground more finely and usually made from blanched almonds (no skins).”

So yes, I think you could just grind your own almonds!
