This is a decadent dessert that’s perfect for almost any occasion and it takes just around four hours to make before it is ready to serve. Use reduced fat cream cheese in the filling to keep dessert calories as low as possible. If you prefer, you can absolutely use full fat cream cheese instead. This pie also doesn’t have milk so no worries about a tough film forming on top while it cools. You’ll get nothing but rich creamy pie.
Keto Chocolate Pie Recipe
- 1 1/2 cups blanched hazelnuts, unsalted
- 3 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
- 1/2 tsp stevia glycerite (equals 2 tbsp sugar)
- pinch of sea salt
- 7 oz dark chocolate, 90% cacao
- 1 tsp stevia glycerite (equals about 1/4 cup sugar)
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 8 oz reduced fat soft cream cheese
Process the hazelnuts in your food processor until very finely chopped, but stop before they turn into a paste. Add the melted butter, stevia and kosher salt and process to incorporate, stopping once to scrape the sides. Using a spatula, transfer the mixture into a 9-inch pie plate. Spread the mixture all over the bottom and halfway up the sides of the pie plate, pressing with your hands to compress it into a crust. Place the crust in the freezer to set while you prepare the filling.
Wipe the food processor bowl and blade clean with moist paper towels. In a small saucepan, over low heat, melt the chocolate with the stevia and vanilla. Set aside. Place the cream cheese in the food processor bowl. Process until creamy, about 1 minute, stopping once to scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl. Add the melted chocolate mixture. Process to incorporate, stopping to scrape the bowl as needed. Using a spatula, transfer the mixture to the prepared pie crust. Cover with cling wrap and refrigerate until set, about 4 hours. Remove the pie from the fridge 30 minutes before serving. Cut with a sharp knife and run the knife under hot water, then wipe dry, between slices.
