Rawkin Chocolate Pecan Pie

I was craving Chocolate & Pecan Pie, so this was born! It was so incredibly delicious, I just had to share it. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!


Ingredients

Simple Brownie Crust:

2 Cups Organic Raw Pecans that have been soaked & dehydrated
3-4 T Organic Raw Cocoa Powder - Verified Truly Raw
1-2 Dashes of quality Salt - (I prefer Himalayan Pink Crystal Salt)
8 Large Organic Medjool Dates

Filling:


12 Large Organic Medjool Dates
1 Cup Water
2 tsp. Vanilla (not a raw ingredient) or Raw Vanilla Bean Power
1/8-1/4 tsp Himalayan Pink Crystal Salt (to taste)
1 Cups Organic Raw Pecans that have been soaked & dehydrated

Topping:

1/2 cup Organic Raw Pecans that have been soaked & dehydrated


Instructions


Simple Brownie Crust:


Chop the 2 cups of Pecans in the food processor, but not too fine.

Add the dashes of Himalayan Pink Crystal Salt & 1/4 - 1/2 cup Organic Raw Cocoa Powder & process in briefly.

Remove the pits & split the 8 Large Medjool Dates in half, then process them into the nut/cocoa mixture until slightly sticky.

Everyone's tastebuds are unique, so when you get this far, it's best to taste it. This way you can make any necessary adjustments. It should taste like a wonderful chocolate brownie (& can be eaten that way too of course).
If it isn't chocolatey enough for your taste, add more Organic Raw Cocoa Powder one spoonful at a time & process in briefly, then taste again until you get it just right for you.
If it tastes a little flat, then sprinkle in another dash of Himalayan Pink Crystal Salt & process briefly.
Be sure to modify your personal recipe to include any additions you make, so it will be easier to get it right next time.

I like to make individual servings, so I split this between 4 - 10 oz glass bowls or 6 - 6 oz glass bowls, pressing it into the bottom & sides to form a crust.

Filling:


Pit the 12 Large Organic Medjool Dates and put in a High-speed Blender (such as a Vitamix or Blendtec) with 1 Cup Water, 2 tsp. Vanilla & 1/8-1/4 tsp Himalayan Pink Crystal Salt.


Blend starting at lowest speed and gradually increasing to high speed until you have a smooth paste.

Add the 1 Cup Organic Raw Pecans and blend until smooth.

Divide the filling equally between your crusts.

Topping:

Place the Organic Raw Pecan halves decoratively on top of the filling & serve!
