Chocolate Avocado Pie with a Grain-Free Crust

Posted on
Loved this recipe, it really surprised me. I made an oreo cookie crumb base instead of using a pie shell. Yum!

Ingredients;

CRUST (GRAIN-FREE);

  • 1 3/4 cup almonds
  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 1 1/2 cup dates, pitted
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

FILLING;

  • 3-4 ripe avocados (3 large; 4 medium-sized)
  • 1 cup raw cacao powder
  • 1 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract

 

Instructions;

CRUST;
1.) Put almonds, walnuts, & vanilla in food processor.  Blend until crumbly.
2.) Add dates slowly, a few at a time with the food processor blending.  Blend until well-combined.  The crust should be able to stick together in your hand without crumbling.  If your crust feels too dry and separates too easily, add a few more dates until you get the right consistency.
3.) Press crust into a pie pan along bottom and edges until it’s even.

4.) Put in refrigerator while you prepare the filling.

FILLING;
1.) Using (clean) food processor, add avocados, salt, & vanilla and blend until creamy.
2.) Add cacao powder, honey, & coconut oil slowly, one at a time with food processor going.
3.) Blend until all is fully combined, smooth, and creamy like pudding.
4.) Scoop filling into the pie crust and smooth out the top.
5.) Let chill in refrigerator for at least an hour; up to several so it sets well.  You can store the pie in the fridge for up to 1 week covered.

Now, enjoy
