Satisfy Your “Sweet Tooth” with this Healthy Choc-Peanut Butter Protein Pie

We all have it. The sweet tooth that always seeks for sweets. I learned how to control it and sometimes it knows to provoke me by begging for sweets.

I was a big cake eater before I became a nutritionist. Not only cakes, all kinds of sweets. I found myself spending money on sweets more than I spend on fruits and vegetables.

I lived in a world where I thought eating sugary foods couldn’t touch me. The issues I had back then made me start controlling myself. That was one of the reasons why I am what I am right now.

The struggle was real. I made it through. But that sweet tooth is still here. I usually control it with some fruit or something. I can’t let it gain control over me again.

Sometimes I make a healthy cake. It’s more about my kids and husband. I will eat a piece of it, but just to see if the recipe is good or not.

Either way, I’m not so much into sweets anymore.

Going through my old recipes book, I found a chocolate cake recipe. I thought about making it, but then I said to myself: why not making a healthy version of this?

If you are following me, you know how much I love to search through the Internet. That’s how I found this Choc-Peanut Butter Protein Pie.

It looks like the old sugar-full chocolate cake. I made it yesterday and my family loved it.

I’m trying a different diet at the moment and I couldn’t risk damaging it with this healthy cake.

But my kids and husband gave A+ grade for it so I suggest you to trust them.

Here is what you need for the crust:

  •      ½ cashews
  •      ½ cup walnuts
  •      1 tbsp. honey
  •      1 tsp. vanilla extract
  •      8 dates (pitted)
  •      2 tbs. cacao powder

Here is what you need for the filling

  •      ½ cup of natural peanut butter
  •      2 scoops of Whey Protein Isolate (sub: powdered peanut butter)
  •      ½ cup Cottage Cheese
  •      ½ cup natural yogurt
  •      2 tbs. Unsweetened almond milk
  •      1 tsp. coconut oil
  •      2 tbs. clean maple syrup
  •      1 tsp. vanilla extract

Here is what you need for the Chocolate topping

  •      2 tbs. coconut oil, melted
  •      1 tbs. maple syrup (or raw honey)
  •      2 tbs. raw cacao powder
  •      1 tsp. vanilla

Here are the directions:

  •      Combine all crust ingredients together in a food processor. Process them until they form a crumble
  •      Place this mixture into an 8-inch pan. Mold the mixture to the bottom of the pan. By this time you have formed a crust
  •      Blend the cottage cheese, peanut butter and natural yoghurt together. Add in the remaining filling ingredients
  •      The chocolate topping is made by combining all the ingredients together
  •      Pour the filling mixture into the crust. Smooth it down and pour over the chocolate topping.
  •      Freeze it for 1 hour
  •      After it’s done, take it out of the freezer, remove the pan and serve.

It looks delicious. I bet it tastes like that, too. You will tell me about it in the comments section below.

I really enjoy reading your opinions. They make me better.

If you have questions about what diet I’m on, wait until I see if it works. I will share it then.
