Vegan Raw Chocolate Pie

I really do enjoy chocolate just as much as the next gal, and it’s important for me to buy organic, fair-trade and vegan chocolate, which can be very difficult at times.

However, homemade chocolate treats are super easy to make and taste so much better than the store bought, pre-packaged, and processed variety anyways. Don’t you think?

You can do so many things with raw chocolate just eat as is, use it as a pie filling or even a cake frosting.

Raw Chocolate Tarts

Yield: 5 tarts

Ingredients

Method

  1. Combine all 3 ingredients of the nut crust in a food processor fitted with the S-blade. Scoop out the crust with a spoon and separate it between 4-5 small tart cups. Press down and place in the freezer while you prepare the chocolate filling.
  2. You will need to melt the coconut butter/oil, if it is not already melted. To keep it raw, either melt it in your dehydrator (where to buy) or in a bowl immersed in warm water. Once the coconut butter/oil is melted, incorporate the cacao powder and honey.
  3. Take the tart crust out of the freezer, and pour the filling into each tart. I had trouble not licking the entire bowl first. Once the tarts are filled with the chocolate, return them to the freezer until they get nice and hard. It could take anywhere form 15 minutes to 1/2 an hour. Take them out of the freezer and make sure to eat them right away because they will begin to melt quickly. You don’t want nut mush and liquid chocolate in your hands?

Notes and Tips

Coconut oil can be substituted for the coconut butter.

Carob can be substituted for cacao; it may lend a different taste.

Another nut such as walnuts or almonds can be substituted for the pecans.

The chocolate tarts taste fantastic and turned out perfect. What do you think? A nice chocolate treat? Well, I am now off to make another batch.

  7. Cirsten September 15, 2012 at 10:47 am #

    The chocolate filling gets even better if you mix a ripe, mashed avocado into it.

  8. Susan September 15, 2012 at 6:51 pm #

    Somethings missing!

    1/2 cacao powder-1/2 cup?

    1/4 coconut butter or oil-1/4 cup?

    Sounds yummy!

    I’m with Christine – your photography is stunning!!! They look amazing and the recipe looks awesome. My son has never had chocolate and I think this might be his first taste! Nice job :)

    • Good Girl Gone Green September 18, 2012 at 11:38 pm #

      Thanks! Little E has had chocolate but it has always been raw unsweetened and I add honey or dates to sweeten it. It tastes so different from store bought chocolate. So much better!

  18. Anne @ Authentic Simplicity September 24, 2012 at 8:41 pm #

    Oh my these sound soooo good! Thanks for linking up to Healthy 2Day Wednesday!

  19. Lisa September 26, 2012 at 11:25 pm #

    you think you could replace the agave, honey or maple syrup with stevia, my friends on a candida diet and im trying to find something she can have for dessert!!

    • Good Girl Gone Green October 5, 2012 at 9:12 pm #

      Probably. You could try it. You might need to add something to thicken it like avocado or banana. Not sure if you can have those on candida diet. :)

  20. Miriam November 4, 2012 at 12:44 am #

    Hi
    Have you tried doing the recipe as a single larger pie/tart ?
    If people really want it with a true raw sweetener then raw honey is the only one to use. Easy to “grow” your own (keep a hive).

  21. Adrienne November 9, 2012 at 10:20 pm #

    Just shared on FB :). Nice recipe!

  22. Jo November 6, 2013 at 4:09 pm #

    I don’t want to be a pain, but what would happen if I would leave the shredded coconut out of the crust?

    • Good Girl Gone Green November 7, 2013 at 1:01 pm #

      Jo, I am sure it would be fine. I have never tried it though. I love coconut.

  23. Linda November 8, 2013 at 12:36 pm #

    Oh my, that looks good! Please remember to leave a link back when participating in Gluten-Free Wednesdays. :)

  24. Heather @Gluten-Free Cat November 13, 2013 at 5:12 pm #
