by Sarah Farsh, refreshed from November 22, 2012 post
  • Pie Shell
    • 2 cups whole oats (not quick)
    • 1 cup dry roasted, unsalted almonds
    • 1/2 cup unsweetened dried coconut flakes
    • 4 medjool dates, or 1/2 cup raisins
    • pinch sea salt
    • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • Filling
    • 1 can pure, unsweetened pumpkin or roasted kombucha squash (or double sweet potato)
    • 1 large sweet potato, baked (or double pumpkin)
    • 1/2 cup raw almonds or 1/4 cup raw almond butter, unsalted
    • 6 medjool dates
    • 2-4 tbsp pure maple syrup (more if you like a sweeter pie)
    • 1/2 cup tofu, chickpeas, or an egg
    • 1 tsp cinnamon
    • 1/2 tsp fresh grated nutmeg
    • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
    • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
    • 1 vanilla bean or vanilla bean extract
  • Topping
    • 1/4 cup maple syrup 
    • 1/4 cup good honey (or more maple syrup if you're vegan)
    • 1 bag raw pecan halves 
    • 3 tbsp vanilla bourbon extract, or 1 tsp vanilla and 2 shots good bourbon
  • Chocolate Drizzle
    • 1/2 cup unsweetened chocolate chips 
In food processor or blender, ground all pie shell ingredients together coarsely to form a sticky dough. Spray a pie or cake pan lightly with coconut oil, and poor dough into pan. Press dough out with fingers to build pie base. Blend all filling ingredients together and poor into pie shell. Bake at 350 for 35-40min. Meanwhile, lightly warm up topping ingredients on a non-stick pan until pecans get sticky and caramelized very careful not to burn, you just want to warm up into melty goodness without cooking or toasting and nuts can burn very fast so keep your eyes on them and don't leave the pan alone. Should only take a few min to start to see caramelization. Poor caramelized pecan topping over baked pie and spread on top evenly. Warm chocolate chips in a glass bowl over boiling water, or in zapper for 1 minute to melt. Mix chocolate with a fork or knife, and drizzle on top of pecans to liking design. Bake pie with final toppings added for another 10 min just to set everything together. Allow to cool 20min before setting in refrigerator at least 4 hours, or overnight, before serving.
