Ingredients:

  • 2/3 cup coconut cream

  • 1 1/2 cup chopped pecans

  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar

  • 4 dates

  • 3 tbsp potato starch

  • 2 tbsp hot water

  • 1 flax egg

  • 2 tbsp vegan butter (I use miyokos)

  • dash of cinnamon


Pie Crust:

  • 1 cup oat flour

  • 1 1/4 cup almond flour

  • 1 date

  • 1 flax egg

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 F. Make the pie crust. Combine ingredients together and kneed the dough until full incorporated. Next roll and shape the dough in a pie mold. Once done brush with melted vegan butter and bake for 5 minutes in the oven.

  2. Mix full fat coconut cream with 3 tbsp potato starch.

  3. Chop the dates and soak them in 2 tbsp hot water until soft. Blend to create a date paste.

  4. In a saucepan mix 2 tbsp vegan butter and lightly toast the chopped pecans on low heat. Then, mix in coconut sugar, date paste, cinnamon, vanilla extract, and flax egg.

  5. Add in the coconut milk mixture slowly over low heat and stir.

  6. Pour into pie dish with crust and add extra pecans on top for decoration. Extra bonus: top with 1 tbsp vegan butter with a dash of cinnamon and coconut sugar.

  7. Bake for 25-30 minutes.With love & in good health,
