Yes, you heard correct. This is an amazing recipe courtesy of one of my classmates, Amy Griffith / Embrace Health. We just got treated to it in class and I will be making this asap!


1 cup cashews
1 cup walnuts
1 cup dates
a pinch of salt
a dash of pure vanilla extract

Toss everything into a food processor and combine until just before it turns into a nut butter. Spread the crust into a greased pie pan or tart tin (with false bottom) and bake for about 15 minutes at 350 degrees or until the crust starts to turn golden.

Chocolate filling:

2 large avocados

2 Tbsp. real Grade B maple syrup or raw honey or coconut nectar
½ cup cocoa powder (or – preferably – raw cacao)
3 Tbsp. coconut oil (gently melt over lowest heat on stove top)
1 tsp. tamari sauce
¼ tsp. sea or Himalayan salt

Blend all ingredients in a food processor. Spread out in baked crust, put in fridge to set or enjoy filling as is.
