In this instructable I will show you how I make chocolate fruit pecan pie. This pie is vegan and contains a lot of tropical fruits (mango, banana, apple sauce and date) and a nutty crust made with a pecan and hazelnut mix.
This pie is easy to make. It only requires 10 ingredients and a hot oven. It doesn’t contain any butter, eggs or sugar, only natural ingredients.
You can eat it right away or store it in the fridge or put it in the freezer, so you can enjoy it when you want.
