Raw Vegan Pecan Pie Tarts

This is my favourite dessert EVER! Seriously, anything raw vegan is perfect for dessert. This recipe is adapted from Organic Olivia :)




Ingredients:

CRUST:
  • 3/4 cup pecans
  • 3/4 cup walnuts
  • 4 tbsp unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 cup dates
  • a dash of sea salt
  • **Process the dates in a food processor. Once they have been processed add in all the other crust ingredients**
  • **Press the dough crust you have made into an 8x8 pan and put in the freezer while you are making the filling**
PIE FILLING:
  • 1 and a 1/4 cup medjool dates (these need to have soaked at room temperature for at least an hour)
  • **Drain the dates but keep the date water for later**
  • 1/2 cup pecans
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice (I found this is my local superstore, I never even knew it existed before! It's amazing!)
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • pinch sea salt
  • 1/8 cup agave
  • **add all these ingredients together in a food processor, including a splash of the date water to make it creamier**
  • **spread it over the crust layer and let it chill in the fridge for at least 4 hours. You can either store it in the freezer or fridge.**
ENJOY!!! :)
