Chocolate Pie

This wonderfully delicious pie is raw, gluten-free, and rich in protein and natural sweetness from dates and maple syrup.
It's a great alternative to Halloween candy, too.

You can watch this video to learn how to make it with me!

You will need:

For the crust:
6 dates, pitted, soaked briefly in hot water, and drained
1 cup almonds
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
pinch salt
1/2 teaspoon cardamom

Blend these all in the food processor.
Grease a pie dish with sunflower oil or coconut oil.
Flatten crust into the bottom and sides of the dish.

For the filling:
1 cup cashews, blended in food processor
1 cup cocoa powder
1/4 cup boiling water
1 spoonful coconut butter
1/3 cup shredded coconut
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3 tablespoons maple syrup

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl.
Spread filling over crust, chill for 1/2 hour, and enjoy!

If you prefer a hot pie, you can bake it at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
