Vegan Raw Chocolate Nut Pie

If you are new to eating vegan and raw, try this recipe, you won’t be disappointed.  There are probably desserts you already eat that are not called vegan and raw but probably are. I can’t think of anything except for a fruit salad but that would qualify, so don’t be scared.  Presentation and photography are not my strong point but it was really delicious – better than it looks. It is super easy to make and it is quick and tasty.  Here is what you need:

Crust 

1034

1 1/4 cup almonds – you can use other nuts too, like hazelnuts.
1/3 cup raw cocoa powder
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 pinch sea salt
Filling
2 cups of peanut or almond butter – you can also make your own if you have a high powered blender like a Vitamix.
3/4 cup of melted coconut oil
1/2 cup of maple syrup
1/2 tsp of pure vanilla extract
Topping
1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla
¼  cup maple syrup
¼ cup cocoa powder
If you can, find the ingredients raw and organic.  I like using a Vitamix as it works better than a food processor but a processor will work too.  I have made this in both.
Combine the first ingredients for the crust.  Press into a spring form pan.  I don’t recall the size I used but it was probably the medium size.  If you make it a smaller size the pie will be thicker and higher.  If the crust doesn’t stick together, add more maple syrup.
Blend the filling ingredients and pour over the crust.  Put in the fridge to chill.  Once it is somewhat chilled. Make the topping and pour it over the filling. To make the topping use a whisk to blend it together and if necessary sift the cocoa.
Put in the fridge, decorate as you like and enjoy!  I really like the salty with  the sweet, so I will sprinkle sea salt lightly over the cake.
