Method

  1. Thaw cauliflower on countertop until defrosted.
  2. For crust, process oats in a food processor on high until coarsely ground. Add remaining ingredients and continue to process until ingredients completely combine. Continue pulsing until mixture begins to clump together and pull away from the side of the bowl.  
  3. Add crust mixture to a parchment lined springform pan. Firmly press crust into bottom of the pan, filling the base. Set aside while making filling.
  4. For filling, add all ingredients to a high powered blender. Blend on high, using tamper as needed, until thoroughly combined and smooth (approximately 3 minutes).
  5. Pour filling into prepared springform pan. Place in freezer for at least 3 hours to firm. Move to refrigerator 1-2 hours before serving.
  6. When ready to serve, make ganache by adding all ingredients to a small bowl and stirring until smooth. Spread ganache over top of pie and let sit for 2 minutes to harden. Sprinkle with cacao nibs and shredded coconut flakes. Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
