  • 1 vegan pie crust (gluten free option if needed)
  • 2 cups pecan halves
  • 1 cup chocolate chips (anything from 75%-100% chocolate)
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 3/4 cup coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp ground flaxseed with 1/2 cup water (allow the mixture to sit for 5 minutes)
  • 2 tbsp arrowroot powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt


  1. First prepare the pie crust according to the vegan flaky pie crust recipe. You will need to par-bake it.
  2. Once the pie crust is par-baked, begin to make the filling.
  3. Preheat the oven to 350F. While the oven is preheating, lay the pecan halves onto a baking sheet lined with tin foil.
  4. Place the pecan halves into the oven to toast for 7 minutes, or until fragrant. Remove from the oven and let cool. Keep the oven on at 350F.
  5. In a large bowl, stir the coconut milk, vanilla, coconut sugar, arrowroot powder, flaxseed mixture, and maple syrup together.
  6. Add in the pecan halves and chocolate chips, and fold the pecans and chocolate into the mixture until the two are evenly coated.
  7. Carefully spoon the mixture into the pie crust.
  8. Bake the pie for 30 minutes with crust covered with tinfoil or a pie crust shield around the pie crust edges. Then remove the pie shield and bake for an additional 20-25 minutes, or until the filling has set.
  9. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 2 hours before serving.
