Raw Chocolate Pecan Pie
Yield: 6 servings
Ingredients for the crust:
- 2 cups raw pecans
- ½ cup dates, pitted
- ¼ tsp cinnamon
- ¼ tsp vanilla
- Pinch of sea salt
Ingredients for the filling:
- ½ cup pecans
- ½ cup macadamia nuts
- 1½ cup dates, pitted
- ⅓ cup maple syrup
- ¾ cup raw cacao powder
- ½ cup water
- Pinch of sea salt
To make the crust, blend 2 cups of pecans until fine in a food processor fitted with the s-blade. Add dates, cinnamon, vanilla and sea salt and blend until smooth. Transfer mixture into a pie dish and pat down with your hands until even and smooth. Place in refrigerator while you prepare the filling. To make the filling, blend ½ cup of pecans until fine in a food processor fitted with the s-blade. Add macadamia nuts, dates, maple syrup, cacao, water and sea salt and blend until creamy. Pour filling into pie crust and smooth out using a spatula. Garnish with a few raw pecans on top.
Do you think I could freeze part to save until Xmas?
Hey Laura! We have a ton leftover too! You could probably freeze it but I’m not sure it will taste nearly as yummy as it does fresh!
Is there something I can use in place of the macadamia nuts? Thanks!
Hi Allison, Good question! We haven’t tried it but we believe cashews would be a good substitute for macadamia nuts in this recipe since they can have a creamy consistency as well. If you try it, let us know what you think. XO, Jo & Jules
