“Hey! You got your chocolate in my peanut butter! You got your peanut butter on my chocolate!”
I’ve been thinking about that old commercial for Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups as I made today’s recipe for Low Carb Keto Peanut Butter Pie. (commerical below)
You really can’t go wrong with peanut butter and chocolate.
Put them both together and you’ve got a tasty slice of peanut butter pie with only 2g net carbs.
This pie has a chocolate crumble crust made with cocoa powder and almond flour. And a creamy filling made from peanut butter, cream cheese and whipped cream. Drizzle some chocolate on top and you’ve got a truly delicious treat.
Because chocolate and peanut butter truly are “two great tastes that taste great together.”
