For the Chocolate Filling:

  • 1 cup sugar substitute (like Swerve)
  • 4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1/4 cup light butter

For the Meringue Topping:

  • 4 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup sugar substitute (like Swerve)
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar

For the Pie Crust:

  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce (substitute for shortening)
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons water


For the Pie Crust:

  1. In a large bowl, combine whole wheat flour and salt.
  2. Incorporate unsweetened applesauce until the mixture takes on a texture resembling coarse crumbs.
  3. Stir in water until the mixture forms a ball.
  4. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight.

For the Chocolate Filling:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. In a saucepan, whisk together sugar substitute, unsweetened cocoa powder, and all-purpose flour.
  3. Blend in unsweetened almond milk and vanilla extract.
  4. Beat the egg yolks and stir them into the mixture.
  5. Add the light butter and heat, stirring until the butter is melted.
  6. Pour the chocolate filling into an unbaked pie shell.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for 35-40 minutes or until the pie is no longer ‘wobbly’ when shaken.

For the Meringue Topping:

  1. While the pie bakes, prepare the meringue topping:
  2. In a fresh bowl, whip the egg whites until they reach a soft peak consistency.
  3. Gradually add sugar substitute and cream of tartar, beating constantly, until stiff peaks form.

Assembling the Pie:

  1. Once the chocolate filling is set, remove the pie from the oven.
  2. Spread the meringue topping evenly over the hot filling, making sure to seal the edges to prevent shrinking.
  3. Return the pie to the oven and bake until the meringue is golden brown.
  4. Allow the pie to cool before serving.
