INGREDIENTS:

Lot of pecans (1/3 pound or so) … raw is fine, but a tad toasted really makes this pie sing

Yummy Middle Filling-

  • 1 can full fat coconut milk
  • 1 cup roasted white sweet potato
  • 2/3 cup date paste
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 2 dashes of nutmeg
  • 1 dash of cayenne powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract or paste
  • 3 Tablespoons arrowroot powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Himalayan pink salt
  • molasses as optional drizzle over pie

Crusty Bottom-

  • 1 1/2 cups of wild soil almonds (sub is 1 heaping cup of ground flax seeds)
  • 2/3 cup of buckwheat groats
  • 1/4 cup of ground flax seeds
  • 8 medjool or other sweet and soft dates
  • 4 Tablespoons of warmed coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla paste or extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon Himalayan pink salt
  • 2 tablespoon of sesame seeds 

WHAT TO DO:

  1. Roast your sweet potato in advance so it can cool enough to peel before blending with other ingredients.  It usually does fine at 50 minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Oven should be at 350 for the pie, so adjust now.
  2. Put all crusty ingredients into food processor until medium textured dry dough comes together… it is your preference how nutty in texture or uniform in texture you make your crust.  Also, it is your choice to leave as raw or to bake and let cool before filling. If you opt to bake the crust, go 350 degrees F for about 20 minutes.
  3. In high-speeder, powerful blender, mix together roasted sweet potato (no skin,) date paste, vanilla, arrowroot, all spices and salt… blend until thick , yet smooth.
  4. Fill crust with blended pie filling
  5. Pour your raw or roasted pecans on top and kindly press them into the filling so some are sunken treasures 🙂
  6. Bake for about 30 minutes.  Let Cool.  If you have a savory crowded, freshly grate Himalayan pink salt dust over the pie after cooling and then serve with tea and drizzled with molasses…

YOU WILL DELIGHT YOURSELF WITH THIS NO SUGAR, NO BUTTER, NO DAIRY SOUTHERN DELECTABLE DESSERT.~
