Scale

Ingredients

Chocolate Pie Crust

  • 1 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 cup cacao flour
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil (melted)
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 tbsp ground flax or chia seed
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup

Pie Filling

  • 2 cups organic cashews (soaked overnight and rinsed)
  • 1 16 oz can coconut cream or full fat coconut milk
  • 1 tsp organic spirulina
  • 2 tsp peppermint extract or 4 drops peppermint essential oil
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 batch paleo vegan Oreos

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375F and grease a 9″ pie dish with coconut oil.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together coconut flour, cacao powder, sea salt, ground flax/chia seed, and baking soda.
  3. Add in coconut oil, water, and maple syrup and mix until a sticky dough.
  4. Press dough into the pie dish, starting in the middle, and working your way up the sides.
  5. Place in the oven and bake for 10 minutes. Check to see if it’s done (it won’t be sticky anymore, but still soft). If it needs a few more minutes, bake for another 2 and remove.
  6. Let pie crust cool and then place in the freezer for 20 minutes, while you make the filling.
  7. To make the filling, blend cashews in a large food processor until it’s a crumble.
  8. Add in coconut cream and blend until a smooth cream.
  9. Add in spirulina, maple syrup, peppermint extract, and vanilla extract. Puree until smooth.
  10. Remove food processor from stand, crumble paleo vegan Oreos into the filling, and mix. Save a few for the topping at the very end!
  11. Remove the pie crust from the freezer and pour filling into the pie crust. 
  12. Place back into the freezer for 30-35 minutes.
  13. When ready to serve, let sit out for 10 minutes and crumble the rest of the Oreos on top.
  14. Enjoy!
