Vegan Chocolate Pie with Pretzel Crust

Vegan Chocolate Pie with Pretzel Crust

This rich, dark chocolate pie has an easy pretzel crust for that perfect sweet/salty bite. It tastes indulgent, but it's actually packed with whole food ingredients and a healthy dose of plant-based protein. No one will ever guess the secret ingredient (chickpeas!).

Ingredients

  • 226.8 grams (8 ounces) salted pretzels (use gluten-free if necessary)
  • 3 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • ½ cup + 2 tablespoons coconut oil, soft but not melted
  • 15 ounces cooked chickpeas, rinsed very well and drained
  • ½ cup + 2 tablespoons raw cacao powder (or cocoa powder)
  • ½ cup coconut sugar
  • ½ cup non-dairy milk (I used organic soy)

  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon fine grain sea salt
  • sliced strawberries
