Valentine's Recipe: Three's Company Pie!

You just knew I would post something chocolatey for Valentine's, didn't you?!  :D

I ran a poll on my fb page for what NEW recipe from LTEV to post.  It was a bit of a tight race, but this Three's Company Pie (aka chocolate, peanut butter, 'n banana pie) had the edge.


When I created this pie, I wanted to give you something that didn't use silken tofu or another soy product for a creamy, silky texture.  Not hating on soy (at all - it's part of our diet).  Rather, I wanted the recipe to be accessible for those with soy allergies.  And, for those with peanut allergies, you can make this pie with a nut butter like cashew or almond.

I made this again today, just for you (ohhh my sacrifices), just to get a better photo (Hannah, come back to me!).  Because it is such a glorious tasting and looking pie for not much effort (don't tell anyone that, do the whole bit of dusting cocoa powder on your face and shirt).


So, for your sweetie, for yourself, for a friend... this Valentine's Day recipe is now posted.  And, for those of you that entered the Everyday Gourmet Vegan Bakery contest, the winner was posted on my fb page yesterday.

For my voting crew, the Circle of Moms contest wraps up on Feb. 14th.  Just a handful of days left to vote (one vote every 24 hrs): link.  What say I trade you a slice of pie for a vote?  That would be bribery.  Hey, works for my kids!  (kiiiidding... that was for you, anonymous)  ;)

Thanks for sharing Dreena!

Do you think almond butter might work as a replacement for pb?

Okay, last comment, I meant, do you think it tastes as yummy with ab imstead of pb? Have you tried it? I sooo apreciate you including the gluten free version! I'm not doing wheat in my recipes and it's so nice to see the gluten friendly versions.

WFVM, absolutely, I think I have it in the comments in the recipe - cashew or almond butter - just perfect! I'm throwing some votes in for you too, btw, want to keep you in the 25. :) xo

for sure, truth be known I'm not the biggest pb fan myself, but I know other people love it, but I think the almond/cashew version is just as good (or better)!

And, the gluten-free crust I haven't published, but it will be in the book. But, maybe you have a gf-crust you use, like a nut one?

What a knock-out, that looks amazing! Great to have an alternative to the standard tofu-mousse pie, too.

Chocolate, peanut butter and bananas were meant for each other. This pie looks amazing - and perfect for Valentine's Day!
