I have created a new favorite recipe that fits perfectly in my new Mireille’s favorite series. As with the protein banana muffins, this is a sweets recipe. It contains a lot of tropical fruit and a nutty crust. If you read my smoothie post yesterday you know how many health benefits these tropical fruits have so what better idea than putting them in a pie/cake recipe. So are you ready to learn how you can make this chocolate fruit pecan pie? Lets get started!
If you ask me savory or sweet I will always answer savory. I can easily say no to cake, candy and other sweet things like dessert. But ever since I started some serious weight training again, almost two years ago I like to eat something mid morning. I like to eat something sweet. So that is when I started making recipes like banana or chia muffins with additional protein.
This chocolate fruit pecan pie has a little of every thing something crunchy with the pecan and hazelnut mix. Something sweet with the agave syrup and cacao. Lots of fruit with mango, banana, apple sauce and dates.
Making this pie takes two layers that turns into the best chocolate fruit pecan pie. I tell you when you taste this pie you want more, more, more.
Store it in the fridge or put it in the freezer so you can enjoy it when you want. This recipe only requires 10 ingredients and a hot oven. Doesn’t contain any butter, eggs or sugar only natural ingredients.
