I still remember the first time I had peanut butter pie; truthfully, it was by no means healthy peanut butter pie! This wasn’t a pie I grew up with; my mom was an apple and pumpkin pie maker, so I was an adult the first time I had it. I was in college at the time, and it was at a chain diner, I think Perkins, if I’m not mistaken, or maybe it was Denny’s. I remember thinking, Oh wow, that’s what I’ve been missing all this time?! Let’s just say it was pretty dang good, lol.

Of course, there wasn’t much that was healthy about that version of peanut butter pie. Actually, if I’m being honest, I’m pretty sure there wasn’t anything healthy about it at all; it was full of highly processed ingredients like white flour and processed low-quality fats, not to mention of course it was laden with sugar.

It doesn’t have to be that way though. There’s no rule saying that just because something tastes good it has to be junk food! Think of this Chocolate Peanut Butter Chia Pudding as a healthy peanut butter pie, because that’s exactly what it tastes like.
