Ingredients

Crust

  • 2 cups macadamia nuts raw
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup dates pitted. If your dates are a dry variety, soak them in hot water to soften
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons coconut oil unrefined is best unless you don't want any coconut flavor
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Filling

  • 2 1/2 cups dark chocolate chips vegan, of course
  • 24 ounces silken tofu 2 standard packages
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch salt

Instructions

Crust

  • Combine the nuts and dates in a food processor and grind until the nuts are the texture of a course meal. Don't over process or you'll end up with nut butter!
  • Add the coconut oil and salt. Pulse to combine.
  • Press the mixture into the bottom and sides of an 8 or 9-inch pie pan. Alternatively, use a springform pan and just press the nut mixture evenly onto the bottom of the pan.

Filling

  • Melt the chocolate chips in a double boiler or in a shallow baking dish in at 350 degree F oven. If using the oven method, watch them carefully so they don't burn!
  • Blend the tofu, melted chocolate chips, and salt in a blender or food processor until ultra smooth and creamy. If the mixture is too thick for the blender, add a bit of coconut milk until you get a thick but pourable consistency.
  • Pour the filling into the crust and smooth the top.
  • Place into the refrigerator until set: about 30 minutes.

Notes

Slice the pie and garnish as desired. I made a mango puree from one mango, 1 tsp lime juice, and enough water to get a spoonable consistency.
