Serves about 10
For the crust:
- 1 1⁄2 cups blanched almond flour
- 3 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- 3 Tbsp pure maple syrup
- 2 Tbsp melted coconut oil
For the filling:
- One 15oz can coconut cream, refrigerated overnight
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1⁄2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted
- 3 Tbsp pure maple syrup 2 tsp vanilla extract
- Optional chocolate topping:
- 1⁄4 cup semi-sweet chocolate
- 1 1⁄2 - 2 Tbsp of the reserved coconut cream liquid
- Add all of the crust ingredients to a food processor and pulse until combined.
- Grease a pie pan and line the bottom with some parchment paper. Pour the crust into the pie pan and press it down on the evenly across the bottom and up the sides of the pan. Set in the freezer to chill while you make the filling.
- To make the filling, open the bottom of the can of refrigerated coconut cream and drain out
- the liquid (reserve it for later!). Scoop the solid cream out into a large mixing bowl, then whip using a hand mixer until light and fluffy - this will take a few minutes.
- In a separate medium mixing bowl, use your hand mixer to beat together the peanut butter, melted chocolate chips, maple syrup, and vanilla extract until combined. Add this peanut butter mixture to the whipped coconut cream, then beat until everything smooth and combined.
- Remove the pie crust from the freezer, pour the filling over the crust and smooth out the top, then freeze again to set.
- When ready to eat, let it sit out at room temperature for about 5 minutes before cutting and serving.
- To top with the optional chocolate topping, add the additional 1⁄4 cup of chocolate chips and the reserved coconut cream liquid to a heat-safe bowl. Place in the microwave for about 15-20 seconds or until the chocolate has started to melt, then remove and stir until the chocolate has completely melted and you have a smooth and thick fudge sauce. Let it cool slightly, then drizzle over the pie to serve.
