Chocolate Pecan Pie

My Paleo Chocolate Pecan Pie is as good as it gets when it comes to healthy Thanksgiving desserts.

I’ve been working on this Chocolate Pecan Pie for years now. And I’m happy to say that today I perfected it –just in time for you all to have a healthy Paleo Thanksgiving dessert that is gluten-free, grain-free, and dairy-free. My boys and their friends were more than happy to eat each test batch of this Chocolate Pecan Pie. In fact, they “snuck” some as a midnight snack during their sleepover with a bunch of friends last night.

I spent quite a bit of time on this recipe challenging myself to use as few ingredients as possible so that it would be quick and easy to whip up the day before Thanksgiving; of course I also worked to make it taste great! I think you’ll find that this is a special pie that could also be amazing on your grain-free Christmas dinner table, or rather Christmas dessert table.

I based this recipe on one from my dear friend Karin. Thanks Karin for sharing your special Chocolate Pecan Tart recipe with me! I love everything you do.

Chocolate Pecan Pie
Serves: 8 slices
  1. In a food processor, combine eggs, coconut sugar, and coconut oil
  2. Stir in pecans and chocolate chips by hand
  3. Transfer filling into unbaked crust
  4. Bake at 350° for 40-50 minutes, or until set
  5. Cool completely before slicing, and serve

The filling for this Paleo Chocolate Pecan Pie has only 5 ingredients so that you can whip it up in a jiffy. We’ve been in a pie phase of late. My older son made a deep dish rustic pumpkin pie from scratch the other night and told me that he wants to post the recipe here on my website. I haven’t ever had anyone do a guest post here before (the boys have developed recipes that I’ve posted) however, I’m giving my son’s request some thought.

What’s your favorite pie of all time? Leave a comment and let me know.
