My Memaw used to make THE BEST German Chocolate Pie. It truly was my favorite pie during the holiday season. This season, I worked out how to make it plant-based so I could relive those sweet holiday memories with my Memaw.


Semisweet baking chocolate 4 Ounce
Organic sugar 3/4 Cup (12 tbs)
Soy milk 12 Ounce (evaporated)
Ener g egg replacer
Chopped pecans 1/3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
Vanilla 1 Teaspoon
For oat date crust:
Rolled oats 2 Cup (32 tbs)
Dates 1/2 Cup (8 tbs) (soaked, pitted)
Almond butter 1/4 Cup (4 tbs) (warmed)
Water 4 Tablespoon



1. Preheat oven to 350F degrees.


2. Combine chocolate, sugar, and soymilk in a medium saucepan; cook over medium heat, stirring often, until mixture just comes to a boil.

3. Remove from heat. Whisk in Ener-G egg replacer.

4. Add coconut, pecans, and vanilla; stir. Pour into pie crust (regular unbaked one or oats dates crust)

For Oats-Dates Crust:

5. For the crust, use a food processor to process the rolled oats and dates into a fine, crumbly texture.

6. Add the seed butter and process for about a minute. Add 3 tablespoons water.

7. Pulse until the mixture comes together without crumbling.

8. If it’s not holding together, add more water, 1 teaspoon at a time. Transfer to a pie plate. Press mixture into pie plate evenly around the base and up the sides. Set aside.

9. Bake for 35 minutes and allow it to cool.


10. Let it cool completely. Tastes best when served next day. Enjoy!
