My Munchable ... Pi Day!


March 14th. 3.14. It happens but once a year - Pi Day. One of my most favorite non-holidays. A decidedly nerdy day, where math and numbers reign supreme. What makes it even better is that Pi Day inevitably means pie. And pies just happen to be one of my most favorite things to bake. Chocolate, too? Yes please!

Chocolate Truffle Pie
1 1/2 cups cinnamon graham cracker crumbs
1/3 cup almond meal (optional)
1/4 cup agave
2 tbs melted coconut oil
Shake of cinnamon
Oil to consistency

16 oz firm silk tofu
1/2 cup vanilla soygurt
1 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips or 12oz good dark chocolate
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 tbs coconut oil

Pecans, toasted

 1. Food process all crust ingredients. Add just enough oil so that it is sticky. Then press it into a pie plate or spring-form pan. Stick in the fridge.
2. Puree tofu, yogurt, sugar, and vanilla. Melt the chocolate, add coconut oil, and then food process until smooth. Fill the pie crust with the chocolate cream filling.
3. Add the toasted or candied pecans to the top and refrigerate. Serve with a dollop of coconut whipped cream!

Take the Pi Day Challenge!
