Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

Featured On: My Mr. Floydy has been cooking up a storm today………….. This pie is creamy like chocolate pudding with a hint of peanut butter.  The raspberry topping adds a perfect sour bite that cuts through the sweet and balances each bite.  Sugar, Dairy and Gluten Free.  It freezes well and is a great breakfast or dessert idea. Mr. Floydy was oh so helpful getting the shots for this one today.  He doesn’t like when something else, even Pie, gets more attention than he does……….. Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie Crust: 10 Medjool Dates, pitted and soaked for 15 minutes 1 cup Filtered Water (you can use this to soak the dates in) 2 Tbs. Ground Flax Seed 1/4 Cup Powdered Stevia Baking Blend 1 Cup Gluten Free Cereal 1 Tbs. Cinnamon   Blend all ingredients in a high powered blender, pulsing until a rough dough is formed.  Press dough with fingers into a pie pan or iron skillet just onto the bottom.

Coconut Blueberry Dark Chocolate Bark

Coconut Blueberry Dark Chocolate Bark

It was time to clean out some ‘just about used up’ bags from my freezer and what better way than to combine all the good ingredients inside some chocolate? There’s no real recipe here since I was just kind of piling things into a bowl, stirring it up and then freezing it.  But here is a good example of some Coconut Blueberry Chocolate Bark:  (and a great site as well)  http://lifeasadreger.wordpress.com/2010/10/18/paleo-coconut-blueberry-bark/ For mine, I used a bag of Vegan Dark Chocolate Chips that I got at Whole Foods, melted together with some Coconut Oil.  And then 1/3 of a Cup of each: Fresh Blueberries, Sunflower Seeds Coconut Flakes Chopped Macadamia Nuts, Raisins I love chocolate bark because it allows you to be so creative and make something specific to your personal likes.  And if you’re careful, you can make it pretty healthy as snacks go………. Chocolatey, chewy, fruity, nutty, and a touch of salt…..yum! Have you ever made some chocolate bark? I love to see how different people can use the same ingredients in so many different ways.  What’s your favorite combination? Enjoy!
