 Serves 8  –  30 minutes                                                          

The Crust

  • 1 cup of walnuts
  • 1 cup of rice flour
  • 4 medjool dates
  • 2 tablespoons of raw honey or Agave syrup if you are vegan
  • 2 teaspoons of cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut oil

For middle section

  • 1 cup of pecans
  • 170 grams of cashew butter
  • 6 medjool dates
  • 4 tablespoons of maple syrup
  • ½ of a cup of water

Topping

  • 1 cup of pecans
  • 3 tablespoons of maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Firstly pre-heat the oven to 180C.
  2. To make the crust, place the walnuts and flour into the food processor & blend for a couple of minutes. Then add the other ingredients until you have a sticky smooth mixture.
  3. Coat your baking tray with coconut oil & place the crust mixture evenly on top using a spatula. Then bake for 15 minutes until browned & hardened.
  4. Then prepare the middle section by placing the pecans in the processor until they make a smooth mixture & then add all the other ingredients. Then place your mixture in the fridge or freezer to set.
  5. For the topping place all your ingredients in a baking tray and ensure all your pecans are coated with maple syrup & bake on 180 C for 5 minutes.
  6. Spread the middle section onto your cooked base using a spatula to achieve an even coating, & then decorate the pie with your pecans on top.

I would recommend allowing your pie to set for approximately an hour in the fridge before serving.
