Chocolate Pecan Pie - Gluten free, grain free, dairy free

Chocolate Pecan Pie - Gluten free, grain free, dairy free

I found this delicious Chocolate Pecan Pie recipe at Elana's Pantry. I changed it around a bit as I always do. This pie is wheat free, gluten free and dairy free.

Elana uses coconut sugar which I don't like I prefer to keep it natural so changed it for honey. I also added some cinnamon which always goes well in a pie with chocolate, not to mention it smells like heaven in the kitchen while it is baking too. I also added some vanilla to the crust to give it a little sweetness.

I made the pie as I was going to my sisters for an early Christmas dinner. The Chocolate Pecan Pie turned out to be a smash hit as I had a piece and another guest had a piece and he raved about it and told his brother in law to have a piece and then he raved and told his sister to have a piece and it went all around the table like this. Before I knew it the whole pie was almost gone!

I highly recommend you eat this with a scoop of ice cream. It break s up the sweetness of the pie.
