1/3 cup maple syrup

3/4 tsp ground cinnamon

1/2 tsp sea salt

Method:

  1. Soak cashews overnight or for at least 3 hours in about 2 cups of water.
  2. Place all of the filling ingredients into the blender then blend on high until very smooth. Stop the blender and scrape the sides to ensure everything is getting blended. Taste and sweeten to taste, if you like it sweeter. If you do add more maple syrup, blend until completely incorporated.
  3. Pour the mixture into the cooled crust, scraping the sides of the blender with a rubber spatula. Using an off-set spatula or knife, spread the filling into the crust evenly.
