Raw Chocolate Torte Heaven


I think I am on to something here. Something really, really yummy!!! Tonight I passed up all the Halloween candy for a piece of this divine dessert. Seriously so incredibly yummy. It's strange to me how filling whole foods are. I only ate one piece and didn't even think I needed another. I hope you make this one. It is wonderful!!!

Easy Raw Chocolate Torte

Crust:
2 cups pecans
½-1 1 cup pitted medjool dates (or enough so that when you squeeze the crust it holds together)
1 teaspoon coconut oil
Pinch of sea salt

Pulse nuts in food processor until slightly crumbled. Add dates and pulse a few more times. Add coconut oil and sea salt. Pulse until uniform and crust holds together when you squeeze it between your fingers. Press into bottom of classic 10 inch tart pan.

Filling:
2 cups cashews (not soaked)
¾-1 cup cacao powder
1 ½ cups water
½ cup coconut oil
¼ cup agave (or to taste if you like it sweeter, less for more bitter)
½ vanilla bean seeded
Pinch of sea salt

Combine all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth. Pour over crust and refrigerate until firm (1 hour in refrigerator, ½ hour in freezer)
