Paleo Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

For the chocolate crust:
  • 1 1/2 cups finely ground almond meal
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons organic coconut oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
For the chocolate peanut butter filling:
  • 1/2 cup chunky unsalted natural peanut butter
  • 1 1/2 cups cocoa powder
  • 1 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

For the chocolate crust + peanut butter layer:
1. Lightly grease a 9″ pie dish and set aside.
2. In a food processor, add your almond meal, 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons cocoa powder, 3 tablespoons maple syrup, 3 tablespoons coconut oil, and 1/2 teaspoon sea salt. Process until all ingredients are combined and a ball forms inside- about 1 minute.
3. Remove ball from processor and press into your lightly greased pie pan- creating an even layer along bottom and up around sides. Work it around your dish with your fingers until it smooths out all along your pan!
4. Pour your 1/2 cup chunky peanut butter into bottom of pie crust and smooth out. Set pie dish in fridge to set up while you make your filling.

For chocolate filling: 
1. Clean food processor out and dry well. Into your processor add the cocoa, honey, maple syrup, coconut oil, and sea salt.
2. Process until the ingredients come together and turn into brownie batter like consistency. Remove pie from fridge and pour this filling over the peanut butter.
3. With a rubber spatula, smooth filling out and smack pie dish on counter a few good times to get out any air bubbles.
4. Wrap pie dish really well in plastic wrap and place back into refrigerator to chill at least 8 hours (or best- 24 hours)! Once chilled, heat up a knife by dunking into a cup filled with HOT water. Wipe dry and make your cuts. Place knife back into cup with hot water and wipe dry between cuts. Serve cold.

**If you don’t eat peanut butter, you can substitute another nut butter
