5-Minute Chocolate Pie + Friday Things

>> Friday, March 18, 2016

I am in love with pies you can process and pour into a pre-made graham cracker crust. It's like instant dessert, but it tastes like it took so much longer to prepare. So, to start your weekend, I thought I'd share the pie I made to celebrate Pi day earlier this week. You can whip this up in mere minutes before dinner or, well, just whenever.

It's sort of healthy, too:


5-MINUTE CHOCOLATE + BLACK BEAN PIE


What you'll need . . .

  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can coconut cream, drain any liquid out
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup (or to taste)
  • 1 pre-made graham cracker pie crust

Method . . .

  1. Blend together the black beans, coconut cream, and cocoa powder in a food processor.
  2. In a small saucepan over low heat, melt the chocolate chips, stirring continuously.
  3. Add the chocolate to your mixture and blend until well incorporated.
  4. Add the maple syrup, adjusting to your preferred sweetness.
  5. Pour filling into your crust. Let set in the fridge for 1 or more hours.

For a different twist on the no-bake pie, check out this delicious Peanut Butter Pie that uses many of the same ingredients. And if you're curious, kids love this pie even with the black beans inside. At least Ada does, and she's pretty picky, so there's that!
