Lighter Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

If you’ve been searching for a better-for-you-dessert recipe that still feels totally indulgent, look no further. This peanut butter pie is the perfect mixture of sweet and savory. The crust – made with any kind of nuts, oat flower, cocoa powder, and milk – is dense, but the peanut butter and Greek yogurt filling is light and airy.
