In This Recipe
To make the crust, preheat the oven to 375° F. Place the crackers and sugar in a food processor and pulse to combine. Drizzle in the coconut oil and pulse a few more times, until the crust holds together (you can also mix the crust with your hands). Press the crust firmly into a pie crust pan, and bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until golden brown. Allow crust to cool.
Transfer the tofu, vanilla, almond milk, sea salt, and maple syrup to a food processor or blender and blend well. Melt the chips over a double boiler, and add them to the tofu mix. Blend again.
Pour chocolate filling into the pie crust and let it set in the fridge for at least three hours. Slice and serve.
