Seriously. This one is awesome. And raw pie happens to be one of our favourite breakfasts! You can’t really go wrong with pie for breakfast!

Cacao powder is an amazing superfood fill of free radical scavenging antioxidants. The key part of this though, is having it be RAW. Most chocolate companies roast their beans, destroying a lot of these antioxidants, as well as making it’s fats rancid.
Coconut is an amazing food slowly becoming more and more popular as the myths about it’s fat become debunked. Coconut is an amazing nut that’s fats actaully help you LOSE weight and speed up metabolism!

SO here’s what you’ll need:

For the Crust:

1/2 cup walnuts (or almonds), soaked
1/2 cup dates
1/4 cup shredded coconut1 Tbsp water, if needed

For the inside:

1 can coconut milk
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 cup cacao powder
1/2 cup dates
1 Tbsp stevia powder
1 avocado
1 tsp vanilla powder or extract
1/4 cup shredded coconut for garnish

Directions:
Put walnuts, dates, and shredded coconut in a food processor until well mixed (does not need to be smooth). Add water if it’s not sticking together. Spread this out into a pie dish, and press it down to make your crust.

Blend the rest of the ingredients together until smooth. You can put the shredded coconut inside the pie, or use it to sprinkle on top.

Place the chocolate mixture into your crust. Refrigerate or freeze until set (about 1 hour). It will keep for longer in the freezer.

This guy is also awesome topped with fruit: strawberries, raspberries, goji berries… anything that suits your fancy!

Enjoy your healthy indulgence!
