My cousin was on a diet that excluded anything with dairy or soy in it and it was her birthday. I wanted to find something that was delicious and special that she could eat for this occasion. I messed around in the kitchen and came with a recipe that was so good I made it twice in one week!
Graham Crackers (1 1/2 Cup broken up into pieces)
Nuts- any kind you like/ mixed (unsalted) (1/2 Cup)
Oatmeal (1/2 Cup)
Coconut Oil (1/2 Cup) & (1/4 Cup)
Agave or Honey (1/3 Cup)
Almond Milk ( A little less than whatever amount the pudding mix calls for and add the cornstarch to this as well- should be very thick)
Corn Starch (2 Teaspoons)
Chocolate Pudding Mix
Marshmallows (2 Cups- or more if preferred)
In a food processor, combine the nuts, oatmeal, and graham crackers and process until it is a crumb like texture. In another bowl combine the processed mix and the agave (or honey) and coconut oil until it is evenly mixed. This is your crust, and you can put it into the pan and push down with a fork so it shapes to the pie pan.
Combine the pudding with the almond milk and the corn starch (if you aren’t using real milk the corn starch helps it form a better consistency). Layer this over the crust you have already made.
In a sauce pan, combine the 1/4 of a cup of coconut oil with the marshmallows and keep mixing until it is mixed into a frosting like consistency and pour it over the top of the pudding. Broil the top for presentation and because it allows for easier cutting when going to serve.
Now you have the 3 layers of pie. Put it in the fridge and let it set for at least 3 hours before serving. You can garnish with chopped nuts, or cocoa powder if desired!
So delicious, made with healthy ingredients, and very rich!
It began as an experiment and turned into a delicious concoction! There are many variations you could do of this, but it is especially good if you have any lactose restrictions!
