reeses pie


this is really yummy and pretty darn healthy. it's not raw because it has tofu, but hey, in my books - tofu is A-OK. the crust is mostly peanuts and as you can see the filling is chocolate, so it's like a giant reeses peanut butter cup!

sorry the pictures aren't very good today... long story short, my camera has been stolen! along with many other valuables. i guess that's why you don't leave important possessions in your car when you go camping in the wilderness. lesson learned.

here's some lovely music to stream while you make this pie. the album is brand new and beautiful.


reeses peanut butter chocolate pie: makes one pie

crust:
1 cup peanuts
1 cup walnuts
1 cup dates
1 tablespoon peanut butter (if needed)

filling:
1 package firm tofu
2 tablespoons honey/agave/maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons cocoa
1 1/2 cups vegan chocolate chips (or broken up chocolate bars)

to make the crust, blend all the ingredients together in your food processor until it forms a crumbly ball. press into a pie plate and refrigerate. to make the filling, melt the chocolate, then blend all ingredients together until smooth. spoon the filling into the crust and let it chill for an hour or two. this is good with bananas... but isn't everything?

    Emily - FYI, I made something similar to this before long time ago and I used crushed pretzels for the crust. Some chunky salt might be an awesome edition to the crust!! LOOKS SO GOOD!

    1. Hey! Tofu is not raw, and I don't eat all raw :) I tend to eat mostly fruit and greens all day, then have a whole food lightly cooked vegan meal for dinner. Sometimes I will eat all raw, but usually a high raw diet is ideal for me.
