Paleo Chocolate Pie

Prep time: 25min

Crust Ingredients: 
 -1C Walnut Halves and Pieces
 -1/4C (about 4) Dates, soft & pitted 
 -1t Ground Cinnamon
 -Pinch of Sea Salt
Filling Ingredients: 
 -1C Coconut Cream (Refrigerate 2 cans of full fat coconut milk - scoop the cream off the top - do not use the liquid or you can just get a can of Coconut Cream at Trader Joe's) 
 -1/2C (about 8) Dates, soft & pitted
 -3oz Unsweetened 100% Chocolate, melted
 -1/4C Coconut Oil, melted
 -2t Vanilla Extract

Place all ingredients for the pie crust in the food processor and run until everything is incorporated and you have a fine crumby mixture.  It will be sticky enough for you to roll into a ball and then pat down into the bottom of a glass pie dish.  Only press the crust up half way as the chocolate layer will not go further than that. Put pie crust to the side and lightly heat the coconut cream over the stove in a sauce pan until lukewarm.  In another sauce pan, melt your chocolate and coconut oil.  Pour all filling ingredients into the food processor and run until you have a smooth chocolate filling.  Be careful that you don't eat it all prior to pouring it into the pie dish!! It's SOOOO good.  If you try it and like it to be more sweet, add a couple of drops of stevia or 1T honey. Once you have poured it into your pie dish, place it into the frig to set for a couple of hours prior to serving. It is extremely easy to cut/serve. This is hands-down the best pie I've ever had.  Thank you, Kelly!!!
