Dairy Free Vegan Vegetarian

Calories: 117 Proteins: 2 Carbs: 21 Fats:9 Serves:8

Ingredients

1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 cup Organic Cacao Powder

1/4 cup Coconut Palm Sugar

1/4 rounded tsp kosher salt

5 ounces Virgin Coconut Oil or unsalted butter - cold

4-5 Tbsp cold water

extra flour for rolling

Directions

1. Add flour, cacao powder, sugar and salt in a small bowl and mix thoroughly with a whisk. Then transfer to a food processor fitted with the dough blade.

2. Cube the coconut oil or cold butter and add to the flour mixture. Pulse several times until coconut oil or butter is about pea and bean size, variation in size is okay, but no smaller than a pea.

3. Turn the food processor to “on” position and drizzle cold water over the dough mixture through the water hole, as soon as the dough starts to pull together turn the food processor off. You may need to stop the food processor in between and get a spatula to get the flour at the bottom to mix up.

4. Turn the dough out on the counter or cutting board and shape into a disk. Wrap in plastic and rest in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to an hour.

5. Use this chocolate pie dough as you would a regular pie dough. Roll it out into a circle about 2” larger than your pie dish for a traditional pie. Or roll it out between 1/8” to 1/4” and cut into shapes for hand pies.
