Low Carb Peanut Butter Cup Frozen Yogurt Pie




RECIPE:


Crust Ingredients:

  • 1 Cup almond flour

  • 1/4 Cup coconut flour

  • 1/2 Cup Monkfruit sweetener (or sweetener of choice)

  • 3 Tbs coco powder

  • 1/4 Cup coconut oil

  • 1 egg


Filling Ingredients:

  • 1.5 Cup 0% plain greek yogurt

  • 5 Tbs Monkfruit sweetener (or sweetener of choice)

  • 2 Tbs high fiber syrup (I like Choc Zero)

  • 6 Tbs powder peanut butter

  • TOPPING: you can top with whatever you choose! I used melted chocolate and peanut butter powder mixed with water.


Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375F,

  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the dry crust ingredients (almond flour, coconut flour, coco powder, and sweetener),

  3. Add the coconut oil and egg to the same bowl,

  4. Using a spatula or clean hands, kneed together the mixture to create a fully incorporated dough (there should ne no dry crumbs left),

  5. Grease a pie pan or line a baking dish with parchment paper (to ensure the pie pops our easily after it sets),

  6. Press the dough into the pan to create an even base and press the dough up to the edges of the pan creating a rim atleast 3/4-1” high. TIP: It is important that the rim is even in height so when you pour the filling in, it does not spill over in any area.

  7. Use a fork to press small holes in the base of the crust (prevents the crust from bubbling),

  8. Bake the crust for 15 minutes,

  9. While the crust bakes, prepare the filling by combining all filling ingredients in a large bowl and whisking until smooth,

  10. Once the crust is ready, remove from the oven and allow to completely cool,

  11. Once the crust is cool, pour the filling inside it and top the pie with whatever toppings you choose (to achieve the look I have here, melt 3 tbs of chocolate with 1 tsp coconut oil, drizzle the chocolate over the filling and swirl with a knife to create a design),

  12. Place the pie in the freezer for 3-4 hours and serve. TIP: you can prepare this recipe ahead by making the filling and crust, store them in the fridge and then assemble and freeze the pie a few hours before you plan to serve it. Alternatively, you can freeze the assembled pie ahead of time and then remove it from the freezer a few hours before you plan to serve it to allow it to thaw slightly. W
