This luscious, surprisingly light peanut butter mousse tart not only tastes unreal, but it’s also absurdly easy and impossible to mess up.
We made the tart crust with one (yes, just one!) ingredient: Pure Organic Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars. Pure Organic bars include simple ingredients like dates, peanuts and chocolate chips. Basically, the ingredients we typically use in a vegan/gluten free tart crust. We love that Pure Organic was started by a mother looking for healthier, organic snacks for her daughter. She developed the perfect snack bar recipe and eventually started Pure Organics to inspire more parents and children to choose better snacks.
We especially love their Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars. I’m a huge fan of anything involving peanut butter and chocolate, so it’s a no-brainer for me. We like them for a quick afternoon snack (paired with a third cup of coffee) and my husband takes them to work. They’re just sweet enough to satisfy a craving, but with real, wholesome ingredients! You can find Pure Organic Bars at Walmart, Amazon and on their site.
Moving on to the filling. We honestly had a tough time refraining from eating all the filling 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 also reminiscent of a cheesecake, thanks to the vegan cream cheese. There’s only 1/4 cup of sweetener (maple syrup) in the entire filling, but it’s plenty satisfying!
I already can’t wait to make this peanut butter mousse tart again. I don’t want to make it myself because I’ll eat the whole tart in 24 hours, so I’ll wait for the next time we have a dinner guest. The dark chocolate drizzle + crushed peanuts are the cherry on top; you can never go wrong with more chocolate! (For more evidence of our obsession, see this salted dark chocolate mouse and these brownies with chocolate ganache frosting)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.
