Chocolate Pudding Pie – 3 ways

Chocolate pudding pie. Chocolate cream pie? Whatever you call it.. IT’S DAMN GOOD. It’s my favorite at the Thanksgiving dessert table so I figured – why not make a healthified version? This baby is gluten, soy, and dairy free and has no refined sugar. It’s also paleo!! How much healthier can a pie get?!

Chocolate “Pudding” Pie

 Ingredients :
FOR THE CRUST
  • 2 cups almond flour OR 1 1/4 cup almond flour. (Less flour = thinner crust. I like my crust thin, so up to you!)
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 2 tbs coconut oil, or grass-fed butter, melted
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 heaping tsp nutmeg
  • A TON of cinnamon. Like 1 tbs or so
  • pinch of salt
  • Optional: honey to sweeten

FOR THE “PUDDING”

  • 1 large avocado
  • 2 large, ripe bananas.
  • 1/2 cup cacao powder
  • 1 scoop vital proteins beef gelatin (optional, will yield thicker “pudding”)
  • Optional: Honey to sweeten. Or dates (soaked in hot water for 10 mins)

 

METHOD

  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. Place all crust ingredients in a bowl and mix. (I start with a spoon and finish with my hands.. it’s easier)
  3. Press dough into 9 inch pie dish
  4. Bake for 12 mins
  5. While dough bakes, place all ingredients for the pudding in a food processor and process until everything is well combined
  6. Let dough cool. Fill pie with pudding
  7. Optional: top with whipped cream or coconut whipped cream.

*If you want to make mini pies, follow the same steps above but use a muffin tin and press the crust into the molds*

i love making them into mini pies!

 

For whipped creams here are healthier ones:

So Delicious cocowhip topping – like a dairy free cool whip with way better ingredients and so good!!

Homemade dairy free whipped cream – homemade whipped cream using coconut milk/coconut cream is my favorite. I make it all the time and it’s super easy!

If you’re feelin crazy.. add a layer of peanut butter or almond butter to the mini pies. TO DIE FOR.
