This Paleo Chocolate Pecan Pie has a flaky grain-free pie crust and a layer of chocolate ganache! This gluten-free and refined sugar-free pie is gooey, crunchy, and the perfect addition to your holiday dessert line-up.So, I have a pie recipe that you’ve got to add to your Thanksgiving line-up. It’s not just me insisting it – I just got a FaceTime call from my Aunt Tara, dying to show me her lunch: a big slice of this chocolate pecan pie. She works with my dad, and I sent this pie along with some of my homemade twix bars to work with him.

She was obsessing over it, declaring it the best thing I’ve ever made and insisting it be made again for Thanksgiving. She’s had a LOT of the things I’ve made over the years, so that’s saying a lot.

She’s tried pretty much all of the baked goods that I’ve made over the past few years, and so she’s a pretty good judge of comparison and her reactions help me be able to call something absolutely amazing. I don’t know if she was expecting much, but as she took her first few bites, there was moaning and a definite teary eye.

Pecan Pie

This is the best Pecan Pie I’ve ever tasted! This holiday favorite is made better with the addition of browned butter and no corn syrup.

This is the best Pecan Pie I've ever tasted! This holiday favorite is made better with the addition of browned butter and the elimination of corn syrup.Oh, pecan pie, my love.

I never tried pecan pie until I first started (really) baking, which was just after my 16th birthday (AKA just a little over three years ago).

I had always found the pie curious, and I’d always wanted to try it, but my family always stuck with the requisite apple and pumpkin for the holidays, and I never really got the chance.
