Creamy Peanut Butter Pie

Creamy Peanut Butter Pie

*A family favorite!*

1 1/2 cups chocolate graham cracker crumbs (or prepared nut crust for gluten free version)
1 Tbsp. oil
4 Tbsp. maple syrup
1 package Mori-Nu Lite Extra Firm tofu, pureed
8 oz. tofu cream cheese
2/3 cup granulated Sucanat
1/2 cup peanut butter, natural, crunchy
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 Tbsp. clover honey
1/4 cup fat-free chocolate syrup (reserve for topping; may substitute 3 Tbsp. carob chips melted in warm oven)

Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9" or 10" round pie pan with cooking spray. Mix graham crackers, oil, and maple syrup together and press into the prepared pie pan. Place remaining ingredients (except chocolate syrup) in a food processor, puree until smooth, and pour into the crust. Bake for 30 minutes. Let cool for 30 minutes and then refrigerate overnight or 5 - 6 hours before serving. Drizzle pie with chocolate syrup just before serving.

Serves: 8 - 10
