Primal Choc-Berry Pie

Primal Choc-Berry Pie

Introduction

This pie/tart recipe is the culmination of a number of culinary experiments as I sought to design the best low-carb, sugar-free dessert to wow my relatives with at Christmas! I am very happy with this, and I hope you will enjoy it too. A VERY decadent treat for a surprisingly low amount of calories (all things considered), still avoiding the blood-sugar spikes caused by grains and refined sugars. Christmas cheer without the cramps and crankiness!

Ingredients

    Crust

    150g grain-free granola (walnuts, almonds & coconut - you can find my recipe on my blog - http://girlgoneprimal.blogspot.com/2009/07/recipes-whats-girl-gone-primal-to-do.html)
    2 eggs
    1T coconut oil for greasing pie dish

    Filling

    250g berries of your choice.

    100g butter
    100g of 100% cacao (dark chocolate)
    5T pure cacao powder
    2 whole eggs
    4 egg yolks
    Sweetener to taste (I recommend real foods such as honey, or for a sugar-free option, sugar alcohols such as erythritol or xylitol)

Directions

Crust:

Preheat oven to moderate (around 160 C)

Grease pie dish with melted coconut oil.

Combine granola and eggs thoroughly, then press evenly into pan.

Bake in moderate oven for 10 minutes or until golden brown.


Filling:

Whip eggs and yolks in a medium bowl until fluffy. Add sweetener to taste.

Melt cacao, cacao powder and butter over low heat.

Fold chocolate mixture into egg mixture carefully.


Sprinkle berries evenly over the crust in the pie dish, then pour chocolate mixture over berries.


Bake at a moderate heat (160 C) for around 30 minutes. You may see butter or berry juice bubbling around the edges of the pie - this is fine. The pie is done when the top of the chocolate is firm and risen.

Allow to cool slightly, then serve with double cream. The size of my dish served 8 greedy individuals as a stand-alone meal (it's very nutritious!), but could satisfy up to 16 individuals as a delicious end to a hearty dinner. (The nutrition calculation is based on my 8 portions).

This pie is tasty warm or cooled.

Be careful when lifting pieces out of pie dish, as the crust is quite delicate depending on the fineness of the nuts used in the granola.

Let me know how you go! Happy Holidays!
