Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheesecake

A delicious and wholesome dessert, full bodied and similar in texture to the lacto/ovo version. A piece of this pie has about the same nutrition as a sandwich.

Ingredients

  • graham cracker pie crust
  • 2 cups creamy natural peanut butter
  • 2 12-ounce packages silken-firm tofu or an appropriate mixture of tofu and Better Than Cream Cheese
  • 3 teaspoons Egg Replacer
  • 1/2 cup Sucanat or sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 pounds non-dairy unsweetened chocolate chips

Directions

Pour half the oil out of the peanut better jar and then combine the peanut butter, tofu, egg replacer, sucanat and vanilla into a mixing bowl. Melt the chocolate chips in a pan on low heat until chips are melted. Then add melted chocolate to mixing bowl.

Transfer the content of the mixing bowl to a blender or food processor and blend well. Pour this mixture into the pie crust. Bake in a preheated oven at 400 degrees for 45 minutes. Allow to cool to room temperature then refrigerate. Serve cold decorated or undecorated.
