Paleo Chocolate Pie

This Paleo Chocolate Pie is a family favorite. The boys like to top it with homemade Whipped Cream. It is absolutely fantastic served that way! If you want to keep the recipe dairy-free, top it with my Coconut Whipped Cream. I hope you enjoy this Paleo Chocolate Pie as much as we do!

This quick and easy Paleo Chocolate Pie recipe is made with 4 ingredients. The recipe is based on one from Silvana Nardone’s book, Cooking for Isaiah. I met Silvana at Blogher Food in 2010. During the conference, we learned that in terms of our children, we have much in common.  Silvana is the former editor-in-chief at Rachael Ray Everyday. She began cooking gluten-free after her son, Isiah, now 13 and very into basketball, was diagnosed as gluten intolerant.  I too began my adventures into gluten-free cooking when my son Jacob (now 12 ½, and very into baseball) was diagnosed with celiac disease.

My son has been on a strict gluten-free diet since he was diagnosed with celiac disease in 2001. He’s a huge fan of this gluten-free Paleo Chocolate Pie recipe, and so are his friends. And they have no food restrictions whatsoever!
