3.14 – Happy Pi(e) Day

16 Mar

Pi Day was yesterday and of course I had to develop a recipe and put my own healthy, vegan spin on it.  This pie is delicious, healthy and simple to make.  My peanut butter pie is a delicious indulgence that you can feel good about eating.  The tofu, peanut butter and almonds make this dessert high in protein, over 9 grams per serving!

With only a few ingredients and a little bit of time, you’ll be on your way to making a healthy dessert that everyone will love.  Here is the recipe for my spiced peanut butter pie….
