Easter isn’t Easter without indulging in chocolate – made a Vegan Chocolate Fudge Pie to fill the spot. This was amazing, got the thumbs up from everyone.
For the crust:
3/4 cup almonds
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup pepita seeds
1/4 cup shredded coconut
1/4 cup cocoa powder
3 Tablespoons maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
For the filling:
2 cups cashews
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup coconut oil
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 teaspoons vanilla
Pulse the nuts and seeds in a food processor until finely chopped.
Add in the syrup, cocoa powder, and vanilla for the crust and continue processing until it forms a mixed dough.
Press the dough into a pan.
For the filling, process the cashews into a fine powder.
Add in the maple syrup and water and continue blending until smooth.
Add in the rest of the ingredients and process until it forms a smooth liquid filling.
Pour the filling over the crust and spread into an even layer.
