Ingredients

Crust

  • 1 cup oats
  • 2/3 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons ground flax seed
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

Filling

  • 8 ounces bittersweet chocolate chips (or chopped chocolate bar)
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Cinnamon

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 300F.
  2. Make the crust. Combine oats, flour, sugar, oil, water, flax seeds, cinnamon and salt. Mix well with a fork. Spoon the dough into a 10” tart pan or a pie plate. Use your fingers to evenly press the dough flat and up the sides of the pan.
  3. Bake for 10 minutes.

Filling:

  1. Place chocolate chips into medium bowl. Heat coconut milk until it steams but make sure it does not simmer or boil. Pour heated cream over chocolate chips. Let sit for 1 minute. Whisk until smooth and glossy. Add egg, vanilla, ground ginger, cinnamon, cayenne, and salt. Whisk until well combined.
  2. Pour filling into the pie crust. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until the center wiggles just a little bit. Remove from oven and cool completely, about 2 hours.
