Chocolate Pumpkin Pie is a healthy Thanksgiving recipe and an all time family favorite that I’ve been making for years. My younger son and I adore pumpkin desserts and all sorts of pumpkin recipes, but my darling husband is more of a chocolate lover. My paleo Chocolate Pumpkin Pie is a healthy holiday dessert that lets the entire family meet in the middle!
I’ve used canned pumpkin in this pie recipe in order to cut down on the preparation time. With 7 healthy ingredients this paleo pie filling is easy to throw together. I usually make it a day or two before Thanksgiving and store it in the refrigerator, so that I can focus on turkey and sides the day of Thanksgiving.
When you make this Chocolate Pumpkin Pie recipe you will find that the batter is extremely fudgey. Don’t be deterred, this is totally normal. Simply spread this thick batter around the pie crust using a spatula or the back of a spoon.
This gluten-free dessert is incredibly rich and creamy, and is a fabulous dairy-free pie recipe, so perfect for those with dairy allergies. If you are looking for more dessert recipes for folks on a dairy-free diet you’ll want to check out my Dairy-Free Dessert Recipes page. Like everything on my website, those are all gluten-free recipes, and of course grain-free too. I’ve been blogging gluten and grain-free since 2006 by the way!
