We’ve all had chocolate cravings at some point of time or the other. What better way to curb the craving than preparing your own chocolate pie at home? Well, last week I tried making chocolate pie at home and it turned out pretty good, so I thought of sharing this recipe with you all. This chocolate pie is a combination of a thick crunchy crust and a very smooth chocolate filling. It is absolutely easy to make and anyone can prepare it within no time. Here is a list of the ingredients that are required to prepare this delicious vegan chocolate pie.
For the crust:
· 2 cups of almond powder
· Pinch of salt
· 1 tablespoon of maple syrup
· 2 tablespoons of coconut oil
For the chocolate filling:
· 3 cups of coconut milk
· ½ cup of sugar
· 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder
· 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
· 2 to 3 tablespoons of water
· 2 teaspoons of agar agar flakes
Step 1: Pre-heat the oven to 300 degrees.
Step 2: Now, add the almond powder, coconut oil, maple syrup and a pinch of salt to a bowl. Add some water and mix all the ingredients together, until you get a dough-like mixture. Knead the mixture until you get a thick consistency.
Step 3: Grease the baking tray with some oil and put the dough in a baking tray. Spread the dough evenly to form a crust. Let the crust bake for 10 minutes till that time, let's prepare the filling.
Step 4: Remove the crust and let it cool for some time.
Step 5: Take the almond milk, agar agar flakes, sugar, cocoa powder, and vanilla essence and put them in a food processor. Now process it until you get a smooth paste out of the mixture. If required, you can add a little water.
Step 6: Now pour the filling on the crust and let the filling settle on the crust.
Step 7: Let the pie cool down and then you can keep it the fridge for 4-5 hours.
You can garnish the pie with whipped cream or chocolate chips. Hope you like the recipe!
