Chocolate Sweet Potato Pie with Brownie Crust

 

So Deliciou!! We found this wonderful recipe and we can only share it with you. A beautifully creamy, healthy, chocolate sweet potato pie with a soft and chewy brownie crust. It’s gluten and grain free, dairy free, nut free, and refined sugar free. Thank you to http://www.hankering4healthy.com

Ingredients:

Crust

1 1/4 Cup Desiccated coconut (Fine)

1/4 Cup Tapioca Stach

2 Tablespoons Cacao Powder (Use carob for AIP)

3 Tablespoons Coconut oil (Melted)

3 Tablespoons Honey, Maple syrup or Agave

1/2 Cup Sweet potato puree

 

Filling

1 1/2 Cup Sweet potato puree

1/2 Cup Honey, Maple syrup or Agave

2/3 Cup Coconut oil (Melted)

1/3 Cup Coconut milk (Canned, Full-fat)

1/2 Cup Cacao powder (Sub carob for AIP)

1/4 Teaspoon Pink himalayan salt

 

For the Crust

Preheat the oven to 350 F/ 180 C/ Gas 4

  • Mix together the coconut, tapioca starch and cacao (or carob) powder. (See note below)
  • Mix the coconut oil, sweetener and sweet potato together until smooth. (I use a blender for this)
  • Combine the dry and wet ingredients together to bring the dough together.
  • Press the dough into your pie tin, bringing it up the sides.
  • Prick the base with a fork and then chill for 15-20 minutes.
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes. The base and sides should be dry, but still soft and spongey, with browning along the edges.
  • Allow to cool completely and store in the fridge until ready to use.

 

For Filling

  • In a high speed blender or food processor, combine all the filling ingredients.
  • Blend on high until a smooth, glassy, pudding like consistency. It should be thick, but pourable.
  • Pour into the chilled pie crust smoothing out the top. (if you want to add something like cacao nibs like I did, this is a great time to do that.)
  • Allow to chill for at least two hours before serving.

 

Notes

If you don’t have fine coconut, you can use a blender or food processor on low to blend the coconut to a finer consistency. You want it to be of a dirt consistency, not powder, but not huge grains

 

Enjoy! 🙂
