GAPS Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

In Recipes by Nadine2 Comments

Chocolate and Peanut Butter, could they be more perfect for each other? Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups were one of my all-time favourites as a kid.

When I saw this recipe on pinterest, I knew I had to make it…but first it needed to be Gaps-ised!

I have been making this pie weekly. It is sweet and savoury, Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free, Sugar-Free bliss! Be careful, it is very more-ish, but if you can resist taking a second piece, you will find that it is very filling and will last you all the way to your next meal.

Here is the Recipe.

Base:

Gluten Free Dessert, Gaps dessert

1 cup pitted Dates

1 cup Almonds

1/2 cup Peanut Butter

4 Tbsp Cacao

1/4 cup Water

Pinch of Salt

Directions: Add all ingredients to a Food Processor and Blend. Poor into a Cheesecake Tin and spread and flatten with a spoon.

Middle Layer:

Gaps Dessert, Gluten Free Pie

1 cup Pumpkin Puree

1/2 cup Natural Peanut Butter

2 Tbsp Honey

    From Dr. Natasha’s FAQ page: When can cocoa be introduced?

    Cocoa is SCD illegal. However, I find that many people can start having it occasionally on the Full GAPS Diet, once the digestive symptoms are gone. Find pure organic cocoa powder. Mixing the powder with some honey and sour cream makes a delicious dessert, and you can add it to your homemade ice cream or cakes. After trying it for the first time, observe your patient for any reactions. Cocoa is very rich in magnesium and some essential amino acids and, unless your digestive system is not ready for it, there is no need to avoid it.
