Chocolate Paleo Pie that is TO DIE FOR… No Gluten, No Dairy, No Sugar!


A friend of mine brought this pie to a party we attended and I couldn’t get enough of it. Since’s it’s Pi Day (3.14), I couldn’t resist sharing this with you too!

The recipe is originally from Kelly Brozyna’s book The Paleo Chocolate Lovers Cookbook and I obtained the recipe from one of my favorite paleo blogs, Nom Nom Paleo. It’s a bit of a PITA (pain in the ass) to make, but it is OH SO WORTH the effort.

Crust Ingredients

1 cup (100 g) walnut halves and pieces

Pinch of sea salt

Filling Ingredients

1 cup coconut cream*
½ cup (about 8) soft, pitted Medjool dates
3 ounces dark chocolate, melted
¼ cup melted coconut oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
*For the filling, use the cream at the top of a can of separated full-fat coconut milk. To get it to separate, refrigerate a couple of cans overnight. You can also buy “coconut cream” that is ready to use from Trader Joe’s.

1. To make the crust, in a food processor with an “S” blade, purée the walnuts, dates, cinnamon, and salt for about 20 seconds or until very fine.

2. Transfer the crust mixture to a glass pie dish*, and press it across the bottom and halfway up the sides.

3. Rinse the food processor.

4. In a small saucepan*, heat the coconut cream just slightly.

(*Being lazy, I microwaved it for 45 seconds in a glass measuring cup.)

5. Add the heated coconut cream, dates, chocolate, coconut oil, and vanilla extract to the food processor, and purée for 1 minute or until the filling is dark and completely smooth.
