This pie is so easy and delicious. It honestly can be ready in 20 minutes. If you want to cheat and buy a pre-made crust, some of the graham cracker ones at the grocery are vegan. However, the one below
is super easy to make and gluten free!

Here I am making this, seven months pregnant and dying to lick the spoon:

Instructions
To make the crust:
  1. Mix everything in a food processor until combined.
  2. Press with wet hands into a 9″ greased pie plate.
  3. Bake at 325 degrees for about 12 minutes (until golden and aromatic).
To make the chocolate pudding:
  1. Boil coconut milk and salt over medium high heat in a heavy bottomed sauce pan.
  2. Once at a rolling boil, add arrowroot and whisk a bunch for about 2 minutes until thick.
  3. Add in agave and vanilla and stir just to incorporate.
  4. Take it off the heat and let it sit (to stop boiling) for a minute or two.
  5. Toss in the chocolate chips, whisk to melt them fully and combine them.
  6. Let cool in fridge.
To make the peanut butter fudge:
  1. Melt peanut butter (the kind with no sugar!) over medium heat in a heavy bottomed sauce pan.
  2. Add powdered sugar and stir well to incorporate (this is basically the lazy person’s fudge).
Putting it all together!
  1. Take your cooled (or cool-ish) pie crust and spread the peanut butter fudge all over the bottom with a rubber spatula.
  2. Pour the chocolate pudding on top.
  3. Sprinkle on some nuts, chocolate chips, caramel drizzle…whatever your fancy.
  4. Chill 4+ hours (over night is ideal). Slice, eat, repeat!
