Chocolate Brownie Pie (GF and Sugar Free)

This is my new favorite brownie recipe. Quick (about 5 minutes to prep), easy, and so very good, this "light as air" brownie pie comes with a rich chocolate flavor. Best of all, it is gluten-free, sugar-free and dairy-free. (it does contain nuts and eggs). I just love desserts that are guilt free and still delicious.

We were invited to some friends' house for dinner last Sunday, and I brought a brownie pie straight from the oven. They happened to have fresh cream and strawberries on hand so, of course; we topped the brownies! No longer dairy-free, and a little less "healthy" but....special occasions call for special treats. With or without the toppings, this recipe is a keeper. (And thank you Mary Lane & Doug for a wonderful evening)

Chocolate Brownie Pie (GF and Sugar-Free)

2 eggs
3/4 cup coconut sugar
1/2 cup almond flour
4 tablespoons cocoa powder
1/2 cup coconut oil, melted, plus more to grease pan
1 teaspoon pure Tahitian vanilla
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 cup chopped nuts (walnuts, almonds, pecans, etc)

Optional Toppings
ice cream
heavy cream
whipped cream
fresh fruit

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 inch pie plate with coconut oil. Set aside.

Add first seven ingredients to the bowl of a mixer. Beat until just mixed (3-4 minutes). Stir in nuts.

Pour into prepared pan and place in preheated oven. Bake 20-25 minutes, or until tester placed in the middle of the pie comes out clean.

Let rest a minimum of 15 minutes. Slice and serve warm with optional toppings if desired.
