Wholly Wholesome. Have you heard of it? If not, read on. Closely.
I recently received some Wholly Wholesomeproducts to review. Actually I don’t think “some” denotes the abundance of treats I received. Pies. Pie crusts. Cakes. Muffins. Pound cake. Cookie Dough. The amount of tasty desserts and sweets packed into my fridge and freezer shouldn’t even be legal.
All Wholly Wholesome products are made with all natural ingredients – no animal ingredients, no conventionally refined sugars and no artificial colors, flavors, preservatives, or additives. The “Wholesome” name is no joke. Plus, it makes me feel not so guilty about having all these treats around!
Don’t worry. I’m spreading the wealth. My family and friends have been benefiting for the last three weeks. Here are some highlights and recipes using their products.
Semi-homemade Peanut Butter Oreo Pie Recipe
Peanut butter and oreos. Two of my favorite sweet things. Combine them together and bam. Heaven.
Among the pie crusts I received was a Chocolate Pie Crust, so I thought what better sweet partner to pair with it than Peanut Butter.
Recipe adapted from a Cooks.com recipe:
What you’ll need:
- 1 Wholly Wholesome Chocolate Pie Crust (or chocolate crumble crust of your choice)
- 1 (4oz) box instant vanilla pudding mix
- 1 3/4 cup Milk (the pudding instructions called for 2 cups, but I used a little less to make it thicker)
- 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter (or to taste)
- Chocolate fudge sauce
- 1 container light Cool Whip (thawed)
- Carefully spread/frost the bottom and sides of pie crust with fudge sauce (if really thick microwave for a few seconds). Note: I found the Wholly Wholesome pie crust to crumble easily even frozen, so be extremely delicate
- In a bowl, whisk instant pudding with milk
- Using an electric mixer, add the peanut butter
- Top with Cool Whip
- Garnish with mini Oreos
The pie was so delicious AND easy that I made a Peanut butter and Reese’s Pieces version for Thanksgiving. This time I used a Wholly WholesomeOrganic Whole Wheat Pie Shell. Instead of vanilla pudding as a base, I used chocolate instant pudding, and I layered crushed Reese’s Pieces inside and atop the pie. This was also a winner. Both the Chocolate and Whole Wheat crusts tasted delicious and fresh. Because they weren’t overly (and artifically sweet), they were a nice complement to the sugary candy I added. Yes, I know. Embarrassingly, I may have tainted the natural wholesomeness of the pie crusts with Oreos and Reese’s, but at least some of it was healthy right?
I should also mention that I brought a Wholly Wholesome Blueberry Pie to my Aunt’s for Thanksgiving. It was a hit and also tasted fresh and homemade.
If you’re like me and are not much of a baker, Wholly Wholesome pies and pie crusts will be your new savior. They’re perfect for the holiday season. Eespecially if you are spending all your time on making homemade appetizers and dinner or you’re packing your days with present wrapping and last minute shopping.
