How to Make This Recipe

  • Prepare Time: 30 minutes
  • Cooking Time: 20 minutes
  • Total Time: 3 hours (including chilling time)
  • Serving Size: 8 servings


For the Almond Crust:

  • 1 ½ cups almond flour
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup melted butter
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • • For the Chocolate Cream Filling:
  • • 2 ½ cups whole milk
  • • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • • ¼ cup cornstarch
  • • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • • 4 large egg yolks
  • • 6 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • • Whipped cream and chocolate shavings (for garnish)


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Combine the almond flour, cocoa powder, melted butter, sugar, and vanilla extract for the crust in a medium bowl. Mix until well combined and press the mixture into the bottom and sides of a 9-inch pie dish.
  3. Bake the crust for 10 minutes, remove it from the oven, and let it cool completely.
  4. Heat the milk over medium heat in a saucepan until it starts to steam but not boil. Whisk together the sugar, cornstarch, salt, and egg yolks in a separate bowl until smooth and well combined.
  5. Gradually pour the hot milk into the egg yolk mixture, whisking constantly to prevent curdling. Return the mixture to the saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens and comes to a boil.
  6. Remove the saucepan from the heat and add the chopped chocolate. Stir until the chocolate is melted and the filling is smooth. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  7. Pour the chocolate cream filling into the cooled almond crust, smoothing the top with a spatula. Cover the pie with plastic wrap, making sure it touches the surface of the filling to prevent skin from forming.
  8. Refrigerate the pie for at least 2 hours or until set.
  9. Garnish with whipped cream and chocolate shavings once the pie has chilled and set. Serve and enjoy!
