Foodie Friday: Chocolate Almond butter pie

Happy Friday!  I have to say I am extra thrilled it is Friday today!  Not only do I get to share a fun recipe with you, but tonight is date night with The Hubs!  Our schedules have been a little nutty lately, and we have been like ships passing in the night, so we are STOKED we both have Friday night off work!   We are heading to a movie later, and I think we know what we are going to see, but have you seen anything good lately?  Need some recommendations!

I am linking up once again with my Favorite Foodie Friday ladies, Farrah from Fairyburger, Emily from Whatever Floats Your Oats and Annmarie from the Fit Foodie Mama and Cassandra from Powered by BLING! Today our theme is Healthy Pies!
foodiefridayWhen I think of pie, healthy is not the first word that comes to mind.  So as I was thinking about how I wanted to change a pie recipe, I kept thinking about some of my favorite healthy snacks, almonds and dark chocolate!  I became inspired by THIS recipe from the Pioneer Woman and adapted it!

    I’m glad you both have the night off! I sadly cannot recommend much of anything, because I’ve been living under a rock (or boulder, y’know, whatever) lately. I hope you have fun! :]

    This seriously looks amazing and I wish I had a mixer!!! I’m going to find some way to make it though, even if I have to beat it by hand, haha. 😛

      It was a nice change that is for sure!
      We saw the Wedding Ringer. It was alright, but more of a guy movie.

      You totally can make it by hand, just make sure your ingredients are super soft!!
