This was actually the easiest pie I've ever made! You'll need a food processor for the pie crust and a blender will make the pie filling amazingly smooth.
Gather your ingredients and spray the inside of your springform pan lightly with olive oil.
1 T vanilla
1.5 c raw pecans
1/2 c raw almonds
Blend all of the crust ingredients in the food processor until the nuts and dates are mostly ground and easily stick together when you squeeze them. You should be able to easily press this into your springform pie pan.
2 c cashews, soaked
1/4 c sunflower seeds, soaked
1/2 c raw sugar (up to 1 c sugar if you prefer sweeter pies)
4-5 T raw cocoa
7 T water
1 T vanilla
If you use a food processor, it'll take longer to blend but it works. If you have a blender, throw all of the ingredients together and blend until smooth and creamy! The pie filling will be thick, not runny.
Smooth over the pie crust you just made. You can place it in the freezer for 1/2 hour, then remove from the springform pan and place in the fridge.
3 T maple syrup
1 T raw cocoa
MIX WELL and store extra sauce in fridge.
I don't like to put fudge sauce or fruit on top of the pie until it's sliced and on a plate. That way your pie stays firm and your fruit stays fresh!
So, when you're ready to eat, slice a few strawberries (or bananas!) onto the plate and drizzle some homemade chocolate sauce right on top! It's delicious!
