Peanut Butter & Chocolate Pie

Serves 8-10

Ingredients:

Crust:

1 cup sunflower seeds, roasted

1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes

2 tbsp raw cacao powder

2 tbsp maple syrup

pinch of sea salt

Filling:

1 cup cashes, soaked 2-4 hours or overnight

1/2 cup natural peanut butter

2/3 cup raw honey

1/2 tsp vanilla powder or 1 tsp vanilla extract

water to thin out

2 oz dairy-free chocolate chips

2 tbsp coconut oil

Directions:

For the crust:

  • Preheat oven to 325F.
  • Spread sunflower seeds in an even layer on a baking sheet. Bake for 25-30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes or so.
  • Allow them to cool before adding them to the food processor.
  • In a food processor combine all of the crust ingredients and blend for 30 seconds. Don’t over process or it will become crumbly and will not hold together.
  • Press mixture firmly into the bottom and upsides of 9-inch pie plate. You may wish to line your pie plate with parchment paper. It makes it easier to remove slices when serving.
  • Bake for 10 minutes and cool.

For the filling:

  • In a food processor combine above ingredients minus the dairy-free chocolate chips and coconut oil. Process until smooth. Set aside.
  • In a DIY double boiler gently melt the dairy-free chocolate chips with the coconut oil.
  • Pour the filling mixture over the crust and drizzle with melted chocolate. Freeze for at least 3 hours or overnight to set. Remove pie from freezer 30 minutes before serving.
  • Let stand at room temperature until pie is soft enough to cut into slices to serve.
  • Store leftovers covered in the freezer to be enjoyed at another time!
