My husband loves pecan pie, so I decided to surprise him with this delicious dessert.  This pie is fun, easy to make, requires no baking, and is much healthier than the traditional corn syrup and brown sugar filled pie. Enjoy!

Crust

2 1/2 c medjool dates, pits removed

1 c grated unsweetened coconut

1 1/2 c walnuts

1 t organic vanilla extract

Pie Filling

1/2 c almonds

1/2 c pecans

1 c organic raisins

1/3 c medjool dates, pits removed

1/3 c organic brown rice syrup

1/3 c black strap molasses

2 T organic vanilla extract

1 t cinnamon

1/3 c water or unsweetened almond milk

1/4 c Enjoy Life vegan chocolate chips and/or pecans, optional garnish

Sprinkle a bit of coconut into bottom of pie plate to prevent crust from sticking. Add pitted dates, remaining coconut, walnuts, and vanilla to food processor and mix until blended. Press into pie plate using waxed paper to prevent sticking. Combine all pie filling ingredients in food processor and mix until creamy. Add water or unsweetened almond milk to reach desired consistency. Fill pie crust with pie filling. Garnish with pecans or chocolate chips, if desired. Enjoy!
