Raw Pecan Crumble Mousse Pies

This Raw, No bake treat is easy to whip together when a mega chocolate craving hits! I have a pretty bad MAJOR sweet tooth and I promise this really hits the spot without causing my blood sugar to spike and crash. Rather than reaching for all of those processed candy & chocolate bars give these a shot. You will have lasting energy without the crash but still enjoy a seemingly sinful dessert! All you will need is a food processor / high power blender to make these mini pecan pies !

What You’ll Need:

For the Crust:

  • 1/2 TBL Coconut Oil
  • 18-20 dates soaked in boiling hot water for 10 mintues
  • 1 1/4 cup raw pecans
  • pinch of sea salt

For the Chocolate Mousse:

  • 1 bar of extra dark chocolate ( LOVE THIS KIND) but any dark chocolate bar works
  • 1 & 1/2 of an Avocado
  • 2 TBL raw honey ( *use 3 TBL of coconut sugar to keep this 100 % vegan)
  • 1 TBL almond milk or water

*keep extra whole pecans and some coconut flakes & raspberries for the topping !

What To Do:

For the Crust ( Base of the mini pie)

  1. Grind the nuts in a processor until fine.
  2. Add the soaked dates  and process until the mixture is sticky.
  3. Add 1/2 TBL coconut oil
  4. Add the cinnamon and just enough milk/water to hold the mixture together.
  5. Pulse all together, put in a bowl and place in the fridge while we get the mousse ready.

For the Chocolate Mousse ( filling to the mini pie)

  1. In a small glass bowl, break up the dark chocolate bar into small pieces and spoon in the 1 TBL of coconut oil
  2. Microwave for 1 minute and then take out and stir… chocolate burns REALLY fast so be careful and watch it ( the coconut oil helps)
  3. In the blender, now add in the avocado, honey, melted chocolate & liquid & pinch more of cinnamon
  4. now blend baby blend.
  5. You should be left with a creamy dreamy chocolaty rich mousse!
  6. Take the pressed down crusts out of the fridge and spoon in the chocolate mousse ( or if making a pie, the entire thing)
  7. Top with pretty things like pecans / coconut flakes/ raspberries/ banana slices/ cacao nibs etc.
  8. Enjoy Babes!
