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 lil’ baby 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.


Vanilla Pie:

Caramel Topping:


  1. Blend the almond flour and dates in a food processor.
  2. Press the crust evenly over a springform pan.
  3. In a Vitamix, blend all of the pie ingredients until smooth.
  4. Pour over the crust and refrigerate overnight, or for at least 3-4 hours.
  5. Make the caramel according to directions.
  6. Pour the caramel over the pie and top with the pecans.

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

      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.
