Dark Chocolate Paleo Pie (Gluten-Free & Vegan)

It’s World Chocolate Day! To celebrate, we have a dream dessert for every chocolate lover.

Chocolate gets a bad rap, but what makes it unhealthy is the sugar we add to it. Dark chocolate is much better for you and may even have significant health benefits.

  • Nutritious: dark chocolate contains a host of nutrients such as fibre, iron, magnesium potassium… need I go on?
  • Antioxidants: one of the most power antioxidants in the world
  • Blood Pressure: stimulates lining of your arteries to improve blood flow
  • Cholesterol: reduces the bad kind of cholesterol (LDL) and raises the good kind (HDL)

  2. ¼ cup flour
  3. 1/3 cup coconut oil
