Peanut Butter Pie

Okay if you haven’t noticed by now I like peanut butter. I found this recipe on a weight loss blog that was used as a weight watchers dessert but I’ve modified it of course. Okay here is my modification of the recipe for those of us who want to cut the sugar and the bad carbs. Here is the original link. http://www.itsuxtobefat.com/recipes/skinny-peanut-butter-pie-recipe.html

  • 5 ounces Reduced Fat Cream Cheese – softened
  • 1/2 cup Truvia or splenda
  • 1/3 cup PB2 (I can’t find this locally for some reason I order it online i have a link if anyone is interested on my website)
  • 8 ounces Fat Free Frozen Whipped Topping
  • 1 pie crust of oatmeal (see below)
  • 3 tablespoons sugar free Hersheys Syrup(or your favorite brand)

I made the crust out of oatmeal and it worked pretty well. Take the 2 1/2 cups of oatmeal and get a coarse chop in a food processor or blender.  In a mixing bowl combine with honey start with an 1/8 cup (add more if needed) and work honey in with oatmeal. Form oatmeal around your pie pan. The oatmeal works as a great slow burning carb. Just like every indulgence in life enjoy in moderation

Directions

  1. Beat cream cheese and splenda/truvia together in a medium bowl.
  2. Spray your 1/3 cup measurer with non-stick spray. Measure out PB2 and add to mixture beating until smooth.
  3. Fold in whipped topping.
  4. Pour mixture into oatmeal pie crust, cover and refrigerate until firm 4-5 hours
  5. Drizzle with sugar free chocolate syrup before serving.

I try to limit my intake of artificial sweeteners to 2-3 a week but for recipes like the peanut butter pie it works as a great substitution. I try to consume natural sugars from fruits, honey and naturally made products. Although we all would love to enjoy the real thing this recipe should help curb your cravings.
