This is an absolutely mouth-watering Raw Chocolate Caramel Pie by Koko Brill. The ingredients in this pie might surprise you! We’re talkin’ caramel made from dates, and chocolate made from avocados….what!? Yes, it’s true, and it works. You won’t even notice that this pie is free from unhealthy refined ingredients. It tastes better than the real thing. If you are wondering about the almond flour/almond meal, I made my own using the leftover pulp from making homemade almond milk. I dehydrated until completely dry and then whizzed it up in the food processor to make flour. Alternatively, you can just grind up raw almonds, or buy almond flour.

Slices of juicy peaches are tossed with custard powder (or cornstarch), caramel sauce, lemon juice and sugar and a hint of warm spices, then baked in a simple pie dough until the fruit bubbles and breaks down and the sugar-sprinkled crust browns and turns flaky. The result is a firm aromatic pie that is luscious and creamy and bright and tastes like summer.
