Maple Pie For A Sweet Heart
Why I Love This Recipe
A wonderful treat for both your heart and your tastebuds! A rich and flavourful sweet pie filling made creamy with the addition of navy bean puree! Your guests will never know, and if you use a vegan pie crust the whole dessert is vegan! Originally from the Ontario White Bean Producers, modified by me.
Ingredients You'll Need
1 cup well cooked (almost to mush) navy beans
1/2 cup B grade (extra dark) maple syrup

1/2 cup raisins

Puree beans in food processor or blender with maple syrup and maple extract until smooth.
Add egg replacers, sugar and margarine and mix until well blended.
Sprinkle raisins in bottom of pie crust. Pour filling on top and smooth.
Bake pie for 35 to 40 minutes
