Instructions for making the pie:
Preheat oven to 350ºF.
Add the ingredients for the crust into a food processor, pulsing until it turns into crumbs. It should be a bit sticky and not to crumbly. Add more dates to the mixture until it’s crust-like.
Transfer the crust to a 9-inch round baking pan or pie dish, pressing the crust into the bottom of the pan evenly with your hand.
Add the ingredients for the filling into the blender. Blend until smooth.
Pour the filling over the crust, then bake for 45-50 minutes until browned around the edges.
Remove pie from the oven. Cool 30 minutes at room temperature before eating.
Serve with homemade coconut whipped cream (see instructions below).
