Chocolate Pumpkin Pie

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!

Chocolate Pumpkin Pie with Canned Pumpkin

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.

  1. I made this the other day with my homegrown roasted pumpkin since we have so many pumpkins we grew that I don’t buy canned. It’s delicious! I think if I served it to someone who didn’t know the ingredients they would think it was chocolate cheesecake.
