Ingredients
  • Crust:
  • 4 tablespoons melted ghee (butter or coconut oil will work too)
  • 2 tablespoons coconut nectar (honey or maple syrup will work too)
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • ½ cup cassava flour
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

  • Pie filling:
  • 1 can unsweetened pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • ½ cup full fat coconut milk
  • ⅓ cup + ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons ghee (butter or coconut oil will work too)
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 4oz dark chocolate chips (about ½ cup)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Combine all crust ingredients and evenly press into a 9 inch pie dish.
  3. Crimp edges of crust (optional).
  4. Place crust in oven for 5 minutes, remove and set aside.
  5. Bring oven up to 375°.
  6. For the pumpkin filling, in a large bowl combine pumpkin puree, coconut milk, pumpkin pie spice, vanilla, ⅓ cup maple syrup, and 3 eggs.
  7. Whisk until fully combined.
  8. Using a double boiler, melt chocolate and ghee.
  9. Remove chocolate from heat and add in cocoa powder, ¼ cup maple syrup and 1 egg.
  10. Once fully combined, pour about 1 cup pumpkin mixture into chocolate mixture.
  11. Slowly add one layer of pumpkin mixture, followed by one layer of chocolate, followed again by a layer of pumpkin.
  12. Reserve a little of both on the side in case you need to add more.
  13. Using a butter knife, gently swirl the filling to create a marbled texture.
  14. If you have leftover filling, simply repeat the process in two small ramekins for an extra treat!
  15. Bake pie on 375° for about 25 minutes until pie crust edges are golden brown and turn oven down to 350°.
  16. Remove pie after 25 minutes and cover pie crust edges in tin foil so that they don't burn.
  17. Bake pie for another 25 minutes until the inside has firmed and a toothpick can be inserted and removed cleanly. If the pie is still loose, continue to cook and keep a close eye on it.
  18. Cool before serving.
  19. Pro tip: To avoid getting cracks in your pie, don't refrigerate immediately. Cool at room temperature for a couple hours before placing the pie in your refrigerator.
