Combine all the ingredients of the crust, except water, in a food processor or blender, until everything clumps together.
If the mixture seems too dry, add water, 1 Tbsp at a time, till it all comes together. It will be a sticky mixture.
Pat into the base of a 6" or 7" tart pan with a removable base.
Stick it in the freezer for 30 minutes or so.
In the same food processor or blender (no need to wash it out) combine all ingredients for the filling.
Taste and adjust for sweetness.
Assembly & Topping
Pour the filling over the chilled crust and pop it back in the freezer about 2-3 hours until completely set.
Whisk all the chocolate topping ingredients in a small bowl, until smooth. Taste and adjust for sweetness.
Pour over the set filling and put it back in the freezer for an overnight rest.
Once frozen, release the pie from the pan. Sprinkle some chopped roasted peanuts (optional). Let it thaw for about 5 minutes, cut into slices and enjoy!
*I've made this recipe with both honey and maple syrup. But next time I would definitely swap dates for maple syrup or honey. If you want to do that, use 4-5 chopped dates that have been soaked in hot water for about 5 minutes, for the crust. The filling would take about 7-8 dates, again soaked, drained and chopped. Simply add a couple more if it's not sweet enough.* Please do try to use good quality, organic or all-natural peanut butter. They are easily available in organic food stores and supermarkets ( though they carry expensive imported ones)* If you don't have chia seeds, just increase the quantity of flax seeds by 1 Tbsp.* This pie needs to be stored in the freezer. You can cut it into small slices or bars and keep them in an airtight container in the freezer.* Maybe because of the honey/maple syrup in the chocolate topping, my topping just didn't firm up, even in the freezer. Oh well, I was still very happy with the drippy sauce! You could just drizzle over melted dark chocolate instead if you prefer.
