Ingredient Notes

Here are the main ingredients you’ll need to make this pie:

  1. Raw pecans. You’ll need 1 cup of raw pecans. They should have no other ingredient such as oil or salt, just plain, raw pecans.
  2. Dates. Soft, moist dates are key for both the crust and filling. Sayer, deglect noor or medjool are all good choices.
  3. Coconut oil. Coconut oil is needed to set the filling so there is no substitute for it in this recipe.
  4. Cashew butter. The cashew butter makes up the creamy filling of the pie. It can be substituted with another nut butter if you like.
  5. Shredded coconut. You can’t beat maple, pecan and coconut together! You’ll need unsweetened fine or medium shredded coconut to make the creamy maple cashew coconut filling.

How to Make this Recipe

Step 1. Prepare the Crust

To make the crust, add the pecans to a food processor and mix them into fine flour. Add the dates and process into a crumbly dough.

Firmly press the dough into a pie dish or tart pan and stick it in the fridge while you make the filling. A shallow tart pan like this one works well for this recipe.

If you’d like to decorate the top of the pie, wait until it’s firmed for 30 minutes or so then top with pecans and/or a sprinkle of shredded coconut.

    How long can these be stored? It was good but I didn’t eat all of it yet. I put them in the freezer with hoping that extends the life of them.

      You can store them in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 months.
