Scale

Ingredients

For the crust:

  • 1 1/2 cups of graham cracker crumbs*
  • 1/3 cup of organic cane sugar
  • 6 tablespoons of butter, melted
  • 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • pinch of nutmeg (optional)

For the chocolate filling:

  • 8 ounces of silken tofu
  • 1/4 cup of plant based milk (I used oatmilk but really anything will work here)
  • 1/3 cup of nut butter (you want the natural drippy kind and not the no stir type)
  • 6 ounces of dairy free chocolate chips, melted

For the strawberry filling:

  • 1/4 cup of organic cane sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • 1 teaspoon of agar powder*
  • 2 cups of fresh strawberries, quartered (you can also cut them smaller if your strawberries are larger)
  • Optional mint for garnish

Instructions

For the crust:

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly spray your split decision pie pan.
  2. Mix all of the ingredients in a large bowl until fully combined.
  3. Divide the mixture in half and pour each half into the different halves of the pie pan. Press the mixture down so that it’s compact and even throughout the pan.
  4. Bake in the pre-heated oven for 7-8 minutes or until the edges are beginning to turn golden brown. Set aside while you make the fillings.

For the chocolate filling:

  1. Combine all of the ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until creamy smooth. Pour the filling into one side of the pie dish.
  2. Let chill in the fridge while you make the other filling.

For the strawberry filling:

  1. Over medium heat, combine the sugar, cornstarch and water in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer and cook for 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and whisk in the agar powder. It should thicken quickly. Set aside.
  2. Arrange the sliced strawberries in the other half of the pie pan and then pour the agar mixture over the top evenly. If your strawberries are cold, the liquid mixture will likely harden fairly quickly.
  3. Place the whole pie in the fridge to chill for 1 hour (or even overnight).
  4. Garnish the strawberry side with mint and the chocolate side with sea salt or shaved chocolate and ENJOY!

Notes

*I make these by simple putting graham crackers into a food processor and pulsing about 10ish times until you end up with fine crumbs. pick through to pick out any larger pieces that may remain.

*agar powder is relatively inexpensive and is used in place of gelatin for a vegan alternative. I got mine on amazon but I’ve also seen it at whole foods before
