Sugar Free Hot Fudge Pie
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees
- 1 1/2 sticks of butter, softened (3/4 cup)
- *3/4 cup xylitol or combination xylitol and erythritol See notes for alternatives
- 1/3 teaspoon stevia
- 1 teaspoon molasses
- 4 eggs
- 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 2 pinches cinnamon
- 5 Tbsp cocoa powder (see cocoa recommendation at bottom of this post)
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 6 Tbsp. almond flour
- 1 tablespoon coconut flour
- 1 1/2 tablespoon THM plain on plan protein powder
- Melt butter and add the gentle sweet and molasses.
- Add eggs and vanilla and mix well-using a fork or hand mixer to make sure it is creamed-ish but don't overdo.
- Then stir in cocoa powder, salt and almond and coconut flour plus the protein powder and mix until well combined (mine shows tiny lumps of butter when thoroughly mixed and that is fine.
- Grease an 8 inch pie plate with butter or cooking spray and pour mixture into the plate.
- Bake 18 minutes until center is set. Will still be a little damp but set. I check mine at 17 minutes and usually leave it in for a couple more minutes and the timing is super important on this pie. It must still be jiggly in the middle if you want it to be gooey.
- I increased the volume of the original sugary recipe so it would be thicker and would set up fudgier (newword?) due to the added thickness.
- *You really need an 8 inch glass pie pan for this dish if at all possible. The standard 9" doesn't work near as well you need a thicker volume for fudgey-ness.
- Sweetener alternatives--(I wanted Gentle Sweet to work but the powdered sweetener changed the texture- I tried 3 times and gave up you need granulated for this) You can sub 6-8 tablespoons Pyure or Truvia but this is a higher stevia combo so not ideal but will work.
- *Flavored whipped cream--I just whipped up some cream for topping. If you like you can add a tiny amount of good quality peppermint extract to each serving of cream. I mean tiny because I wanted to just compliment and not over power. The peppermint REALLY goes well with this pie, so if you have it put a little in, but if you don't it is still "All Good"!
