Classic Combos Are Always a Hit!
You can’t go wrong with a good peanut butter and chocolate dessert. The two are already naturally low carb friendly so there’s not much work you need to do. In fact, most nights, Rami and I enjoy tea with a bit of Lindt 90% Cocoa and a spoonful of peanut butter (or almond butter). I use the word “spoonful” loosely here and the size of the spoon may vary based on peanut butter cravings.
So when Anthony’s Goods approached us to make another dessert using a new product we’ve never tried, we agreed right away. Peanut flour was next on our list to try. If it’s anything like almond flour, we knew it’d be easy to work. And if it’s anything like Anthony’s Goods’ other products, we knew it’d be delicious and high quality!
Back in March we made an amazing Double Chocolate Bundt Cake that was super popular. Since then, we’ve been meaning to make another giant cake to share with friends and family. This was our opportunity. Introducing our Peanut Butter & Chocolate French Silk Pie:
See that crust? It was made with Anthony’s Organic Peanut Flour and it was delicious! It gave the perfect hint of peanut butter flavor without overpowering the chocolate flavor of the silk pie. We kept the sweetening to a minimum to retain as much of the deep, chocolatey flavor as possible. It’s a sophisticated dessert with a fun twist.
Peanut flour is a new ingredient for us. The first thing we did when we got our package in the mail was rip the bag open and take a whiff of the heavenly peanut aroma. Visually, peanut flour looks the same as almond flour and has a similar nutritional profile – in 100 grams there are 13 grams of fat, 46 grams of protein and 35 grams of carbs of which 16 grams are fiber.
From Anthony’s Goods website:
“Our Organic Peanut Flour is made from Organic high oleic raw peanuts, which have properly been cleaned, blanched, and electronically sorted in order to select the highest quality peanuts. The raw peanuts are then roasted and processed through a natural process to obtain an ultra fine peanut flour with a controlled 12% fat content. Our peanut flour is then batch tested to certify that each product is Gluten-Free.”
Imagine our crust as a giant peanut butter cookie topped with a light, yet dense chocolate layer topped with a lighter than air cream. It’s a heavenly dessert that you can make the day before for a birthday, holiday or weekend treat for the family. Our friends and family loved it – the only complaint was that there wasn’t a second pie waiting in the fridge!
Doesn’t that look like a gorgeous slice of heaven?
