- 2 1/2 cups blanched almond flour
- 1/2 cup salted butter (melted)
- 2 tbsp coconut flour
- 1 large egg
- 4 oz dark chocolate
- 1 cup salted butter (at room temperature)
- 1 1/2 cups Swerve Confectioners Sweetener
- 4 large eggs (at room temperature)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp espresso powder (optional)
- 2 cups heavy whipping cream
- 2 tbsp Swerve Confectioners Sweetener
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 4 oz dark chocolate (for shavings or curls)
- Preheat your oven to 350 F and place the rack in the middle. In your stand mixer, or by hand in a large bowl, mix together all of the crust ingredients until a uniform dough forms.
- Press the dough into a pie tin or glass pie baking dish. Try to form a thin even layer that covers the bottom and all of the sides of the dish. Use a fork to poke several holes all over the bottom of the crust.
- Bake for 12-15 minutes until slightly browned. Set aside to cool, uncovered.
- Heat one of the chocolate bars in a microwave-safe bowl for 20 seconds. Stir and repeat until the bar is just barely fully melted and smooth. Set aside to cool.
- In the bowl of your stand mixer with the paddle attachment, add the butter and the Swerve Confectioners Sweetener. Cream together at a medium-high speed until smooth.
- Add the melted chocolate, vanilla extract and optional espresso powder. Mix on medium-high until even and smooth.
- Swap out the paddle attachment for the whisk attachment. Turn the speed to medium and add the first egg. Allow the mixer to whisk for 5 minutes.
- Add the next egg and allow to mix for 5 minutes, repeating with the final 2 eggs for a total of 20 minutes of mixing. Pour the filling into the cooled pie crust.
- Cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours. Whip the heavy cream with the sweetener and vanilla extract. Just before serving, top with whipped cream and chocolate shavings or curls.
