“Carrubato” is an innovative idea from our new Producers Market organization, CioKarrua. CioKarrua crafts organic chocolate and other artisanal products derived from Sicily’s carob trees, which produce this nutritious legume native to the Mediterranean region. It tastes just like chocolate! And it makes a delicious raw vegan pie. 

Are you a chocolate lover looking for a caffeine-free dessert option? Then you will love this Raw Vegan Cashew Pie flavored with CioKarrua’s carob powder.

We used CioKarrua’s carob powder to make this delicious “Carrubato Pie,” and we are excited to share the recipe with you.

Ingredients (4 portions) 

Crust 

  • 3 cups oats (soaked in water for 10 minutes)
  • ½ cup coconut oil
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 date (soaked in water for at least 1 hour) 

Filling

  • 2 ½ cups cashews (soaked 8 hours)
  • 2 Tbsp carob powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 4 dates

Topping 

  • 1 Fig
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil combined with 1 tsp carob powder

Preparation

  1. Add all the crust ingredients to a mixer and blend for 20 seconds (you can also mix the ingredients by hand) or until you have a crust-like consistency.
  2. Grease your pie pan with coconut oil so the crust doesn’t stick to the bottom.
  3. Next, use your fingers to press the crust  mixture into the bottom of the pan to create the base of the pie. Let it rest for 20 minutes in the freezer.
  4. While your crust is freezing, place all your filling ingredients into a blender and blend until soft.
  5. Now, pour the filling on top of your crust, and place it back in the freezer for 1 hour.
  6. Finally, add your favorite toppings. Get creative with it! We used seasonal fresh fig and drops of coconut oil mixed with carob.
