Raw Cacao Almond Butter Pie

Watching the commercials for peanut butter pies made me want to make one we could eat.  Here is what we created. Even the hubby liked it!

1 1/2 cups almonds
12 pitted medjool dates
1/2 cup cacao powder
pinch salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
grind the above ingredients in a food processor until it looks like graham crackers
we added 3 TBS cacao butter melted and process to incorporate
line a pie pan with parchment paper and press crust into pie pan

Almond Butter fillings:
1 cup almond butter
1/2 cup maple syrup (or use 8 dates soaked in 1/2 water)
3/4 cup water (use1/4 cup water plus the dates' soaking water)
1/2 cup cacao butter melted
1/4 tsp salt
mix the above ingredients until well blended, we used our high speed blender. Pour over the crust. Refrigerate or freeze until set.

Cacao ganache:
2 TBS maple syrup
2 TBS cacao powder
2 TBS cacao butter, melted
pinch salt
1/4 tsp vanilla
In a small bowl combine until well mixed. Drizzle over the set, cold pie.
Slice and eat.
