I like pie. But honestly, I don’t love fruit pies.

Apple pie? Pass. Cherry pie? Gross.

I’m just not into them.

I do like chocolate pie. And vanilla pie. And I freaking love caramel.

So this little baby pie was born.

And it ended up being really good, mostly raw, and totally vegan. Which is surprising, because making a vegan pie was not at all my intention. Also if you consider honey an animal food, I guess it’s not vegan. But you could sub maple syrup.

  2. These looks amazing. Do you have another suggestions to use besides a Vitamix? I cannot afford one.

    Thanks,

      I’ve heard that a food processor works, you just have to let it run for like, 5 minutes. I haven’t tried this though.
