Chocolate Pecan Pie

My Paleo Chocolate Pecan Pie is as good as it gets when it comes to healthy Thanksgiving desserts. I worked on this Chocolate Pecan Pie recipe for years, and recently perfected it. So now you 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 be my testers for each batch of this Chocolate Pecan Pie. In fact, they “snuck” some as a midnight snack during their sleepover with a bunch of friends the other 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 incredible! I think you’ll find that this is a special pie that could also be an amazing paleo Christmas dessert.

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.

The filling for this Paleo Chocolate Pecan Pie has only 5 ingredients and 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.
