Zemas Chocolate Pecan Pie is a delicious twist on a holiday favorite.
Pie Crust
  1. Zemas Gluten-Free Multigrain Pancake & Waffle mix
  2. 3 T. palm sugar (sugar of choice)
  3. 8 T. cold butter (dairy-free or regular)
  4. 1 egg (egg replacer)
  5. 2 T. apple cider vinegar
  6. 3-4 T. ice-cold water
Chocolate Pecan Pie Filling
  1. 3 eggs
  2. 1 c. pure maple syrup
  3. 1/3 c. palm sugar
  4. 2 T. butter, melted (regular or dairy-free)
  5. 1 t. vanilla extract
  6. 1 ¼ c. pecan pieces
  7. ¾ c. chocolate chips, melted (diary-free chocolate chips)
Pie Crust
  1. In food processor combine Zemas mix and sugar, pulse until combined.
  2. Add in the butter and pulse until mixture is coarse, and there are pea-sized pieces of butter throughout.
  3. Add in the egg and vinegar and pulse until further combined.
  4. Slowly add 3 T of cold water and pulse 15 times. Touch the dough to see if it holds together. If it does, do not add any more water. If it does not, add the last tablespoon and check again.
  5. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and flatten into a disc shape, let firm up in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes.
  6. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  7. Spray two pieces of parchment paper with non-stick cooking spray.
  8. Once the dough is firm roll out between the two pieces of parchment paper, the dough should be in between the sprayed sides. The dough may be slightly sticky, if so, use your hand to press into a circle shape.
  9. Once rolled out, lay the crust into the pie pan.
Chocolate Pecan Pie Filling
  1. In a bowl combine the eggs, maple syrup, butter, vanilla and pecan pieces.
  2. Gently fold in the melted chocolate.
  3. Pour filling into prepared crust.
  4. Bake for 10 minutes, then turn oven down to 350 degrees and bake for another 20 minutes.
  5. Let cool, and set for at least 2-4 hours.
Notes
  1. Zemas favorite egg replacer is mixing ¼ c. water with 1 T. of chia seeds. Stir and allow to gel (approx. 5 minutes).
  2. Zemas also put a twist on Pumpkin Pie with Zemas gluten-free Pumpkin Tart recipe made with Zemas Gluten-Free Peruvian Sweet Potato Pancake & Waffle mix.
