|Chocolate Pecan Pie Crust
2 T. cocoa powder
Mix together the ground nuts, baking soda, salt, cocoa powder and sugar until thoroughly combined. Add the coconut oil and stir well. Scrape the mixture into a pie plate and using a spatula or your fingers, press into the bottom and up the edges carefully. Aim to make the crust thinner across the bottom of the pan and thicker around the edges of the crust.
Place the pie on a cookie sheet in order to prevent burning and bake at 350F for 15 minutes. If using a no bake filling, let cool and add filling, if baking again, fill and bake according to recipe instruction
