This luscious, surprisingly light peanut butter mousse tart not only tastes unreal, but it’s also absurdly easy and impossible to mess up.
The crust is made with just one (yes, just one!) ingredient: Pure Organic Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars. Pure Organic bars are made with simple ingredients like dates, peanuts and chocolate chips, which are essentially all of the ingredients we’d typically use in a vegan/gluten free tart crust. We love that Pure Organic was started by a mother who was looking to create healthier, organic snacks for her daughter. She came up with the perfect snack bar recipe and eventually decided to start this company so she could inspire more parents and children to choose better snacks.
We especially love their Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars – I’m a huge fan of pretty much anything that involves peanut butter and chocolate, so it’s a no brainer for me. We’ve been grabbing one for a quick snack on busy afternoons (paired with a third cup of coffee) and my husband often takes them to work as part of his lunch. They’re just sweet enough to satisfy any craving you may have, but they’re made with real, wholesome ingredients! You can find Pure Organic Bars at Walmart, Amazon and on their site.
Moving on to the filling…we quite honestly had a realllyyyy tough time refraining from eating the entire filling with a spoon before it went in the tart. It’s that good (if you like peanut butter). We decided to call it a mousse because of its light, airy texture, but it’s slightly reminiscent of a cheesecake as well, thanks to the addition of vegan cream cheese. There’s only 1/4 cup of sweetener (maple syrup) in the entire filling, but it’s plenty satisfying!
I can’t wait to make this tart again – I don’t want to make it for myself because I know for certain I’ll eat the entire tart in a 24-hour span, so I’m waiting for the next time we have someone over for dinner. The dark chocolate drizzle + crushed peanuts are the cherry on top of the sundae; you can never go wrong with more chocolate!Print
The crust for this creamy, delicious peanut butter mousse pie is made with just one ingredient! Doesn’t get much easier than that.
- 1 7 oz. container of vegan cream cheese
- 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
- 1/4 tsp fine sea salt
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- For topping: melted dark chocolate, crushed peanut
- In a food processor, pulse Pure Organic Bars until they form a crumbly texture. Press mixture firmly into an 8-inch tart pan.
- Add all filling ingredients to food processor and blend until smooth and creamy.
- Pour on top of crust and spread evenly. Place in freezer for 2 hours or until firm.
- Drizzle with melted dark chocolate and crushed peanuts and enjoy! Store in refrigerator or freezer.
The filling works best if the cream cheese is softened for a few hours at room temperature.
