Today's recipe is as tasty as it is healthy. Its full of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, fiber, vegan protein, and good fats. The pie filling has two super healthy hidden ingredients: avocado and ...CAULIFLOWER! Yes, cauliflower. Strange sounding I know, but trust me, this filling is so creamy and delicious.The crust is very healthy as well featuring whole buckwheat groats, raw cacao powder, dates, figs, olive oil and coconut oil. The whole dessert is naturally sweetened with dried fruit, stevia, and maple syrup. No refined sugar for me. It is creamy as hell but totally vegan. The healthy shortcrust is chewy, chocolatey, and very sturdy meaning you can eat it out of your hand instead of needing a plate.
