Ingredients

Cocoa Pie Crust

  • cups almond flour
  • cup granulated sweetener
  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 4 tbsp butter chilled
  • tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg

Pie Filling

  • 16 oz cream cheese room temp
  • ¾ cup heavy whipping cream
  • 4 tbsp sour cream
  • ½ cup cocoa powder
  • ½ cup powdered sweetener
  • 3 oz sugar-free dark chocolate chips melted
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract

Topping

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • tbsp powdered sweetener
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 bar sugar-free dark chocolate for shavings

Instructions

Cocoa Pie Crust

  • Preheat your oven to 375°F. Grease a 9" pie pan with butter.
  • Combine almond flour, cocoa powder, granulated sweetener, baking powder and salt into a mixing bowl. Using a whisk, blend the dry ingredients together.
  • Cut the solid butter into small pieces and add to mixture. Whisk to combine fully ensuring there are no big clumps of butter in the crust. A pastry belnder helps with this step or you can use a fork as well to cut the butter.
  • Add egg and vanilla extract to mixture and mix until dough forms.
  • Transfer dough to greased pie pan and flute the edges if desired. Poke holes into dough with a fork and bake for 12-15 minutes. Let cool completely.

Pie Filling

  • Combine cream cheese, heavy cream, sour cream, cocoa powder, powdered sweetener, melted chocolate chips and vanilla extract into a mixing bowl. On low speed, mix the ingredients until incorporated, then increase speed to high to beat until fluffy.
  • Transfer filling into pie crust. Flatten top with a spatul. Transfer pie to refrigerator and let cool overnight.

Topping

  • With a chilled mixing bowl, whip cream until light peaks form. Add powdered sweetener & vanilla and whip additional 30 seconds to combine. Place whipped cream on top of pie.
  • For chocolate shavings, lightly warm a dark chocolate bar and create shavings with a vegetable peeler. It's important that the chocolate be someone soft (but not melted), otherwise it won't curl. Alternatively, you can dust the top with some cocoa powder.

Notes

An additional tip for your whipped cream is to add a couple tablespoons of water mixed with gelatin.  This creates a stabilized whipped cream that will make the topping last a few more days.
