Last month (in March, specifically March 14th) did you celebrate pi day by making a pie? Do you have a crust that you love? Did you know that our tasty granola makes a awesome crust. On Pi day we made the following chocolate cream pie. nom nom nom Think I need to make a new pie.
This pie is easy and quick to make. In a few hours you too can be eating chocolate cream pie. Just get out your blender or food processor, Momma's Mammoth Munch granola - flavor of your choice. I used Cacao Crunch in this pie. But Golden would work perfectly too. If you need a bag hope on over to our shop and order yourself a bag. Other items you will need:
1 1/2 cups of Momma's Mammoth Munch, any of our flavors work.
1 cup of pecans, walnuts or almonds
1 cup of pitted dates
Pulse in the nuts in food processor or high speed blender until you get a coarse mixture. Slowly blend in the dates until you get a sticky mixture, that sticks together without crumbling. If it's to dry add a few more dates, one at a time until you reach the right texture. Pat down in a pie pan. Set aside while you make the filling.
13.5 oz can of full fat coconut milk
1/4 cup of maple syrup
2/3 cup cocoa powder
1 tablespoon of potato starch or arrowroot flour/starch
dash sea salt
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Use only the cream from the can of coconut milk. Whisk the milk to break up the clumps, then whisk in the powdered cocoa, maple syrup, salt and vanilla extract. Then pour in the crust spread evenly, refrigerate for 2 hours or more before serving. Use whipped coconut cream or purchase a can of reddi whip coconut milk.
Cookies for breakfast, oh my I think my grandma would roll over in her grave. My mom might be more forgiving. For us it's a great way to have a quick nutritious breakfast on the run or even a great after school, after workout or work snack.
