This is a recipe I found on a great blog called "Mix it Up". Check it out! www.mouthwateringfoods.blogspot.com. This is one of those yummy desserts that tastes so good- you can't believe it's healthy!
Gather your supplies! Preheat your oven to 350 degrees...
Combine the first 10 ingredients (oats, apple sauce, baking soda, salt, agave or honey, vanilla, coconut oil, brown sugar, ground flax, milk and chocolate chips) in the bowl of a food processor
Blend the ingredients until the oats have broken down and the mixture is like a thin cookie dough. Then add 1/4 cup chocolate chips and process until they are broken up into small pieces.
Pour the mixture into a greased circular pan. I used a 10 inch springform pan. You could probably even use a pizza pan.
Spread the dough into an thin layer
Put the dough in the over for ONLY 8 MINUTES! Don't let it burn. It will turn light golden brown when done.
Now take 1/3 cup chocolate chips and put them in a microwave safe container
Melt those chocolate chips! I microwaved mine for 30 seconds, stirred, and microwaved for 30 more seconds. (Oops- another blurry photo!)
After 8 minutes- take the pie crust out of the oven. Yum- can you smell it? (Maybe Snapguide can figure out a way to make our guides "scratch and sniff"?)
Combine the next 6 ingredients ( tofu, cocoa powder, melted chocolate chips, milk, agave or honey, coconut oil and salt) in the bowl of the food processor.
This is what the chocolate mousse should look like after its blended
Pour the chocolate mousse over the cookie crust
Refrigerate the pie for 8 hours or overnight
Before you serve the pie- don't forget to sprinkle sea salt all over the top (The sea salt is optional- but it makes the pie taste very rich and decadent!)
The next day- after it come out of the fridge- take it out of the springform pan ( if you're using one).
Looks so good...
The soft cookie crust goes perfectly with the chocolate mousse...
Now slice yourself a big piece-- you deserve it!
