Slice into this dreamy pie made with sweet potatoes, chocolate, and a dollop of coconut cream!
If you’re looking for the perfect chocolatey pie, we’ve got you covered. This decadent dessert is made with a crispy almond flour crust and a smooth filling. The filling boasts a silky combo of sweet potato purée, raw cacao and honey for an extra creamy texture.
To get started, stir together the almond flour, eggs, and a quarter cup of the tapioca starch in a large mixing bowl. Mix into a sticky dough, then add in the remaining tapioca starch one tablespoon at a time. You’ll want to ease in the starch so that the dough is no longer sticky and easier to handle.

Next, use your hands to knead the dough, then roll it into a small flat disc. Dust two pieces of parchment paper with extra tapioca and sandwich the dough in between. Continue rolling the dough into a disc that’s slightly larger than the size of your pie pan.
Then, remove the parchment paper and place the rolled dough over the pie pan. Press it gently into the base and sides of the pan. Cut the excess edges with scissors, then bake the crust for 25 minutes. When ready, let the crust cool completely while you make the filling.
For the final steps, place all the filling ingredients in a blender and pulse until you have a thick, creamy mixture. Pour the filling into the cooled crust, using a spatula to spread and smooth out the top. Let the pie chill in the freezer for one hour, or until the filling is firm in the center. Slice and top with coconut cream and chocolate shavings, then serve and enjoy!
Tip: If you prefer not to use coconut milk, simply swap it out for any other non-dairy milk in the same amount.
