Gluten-Free Chocolate Blackberry Pie that is hard to resits! I like to finish the week with a dessert, especially when there is chocolate involved. So why not a three layer gluten-free chocolate blackberry pie –> might as well go all out!

What are the three layers?

The three layers are made up of nut-based crust, fresh blackberries and chocolate custard. To bring out the chocolate flavour, I added some coffee to the custard making this pie outstanding! This dessert is not a typical watch your weight recipe for January, but it is so delicious, I just had to share it with you.

Is this gluten-free dessert easy to make?

To make this pie is not complicated. The crust is made by mixing the crust ingredients and pressing them on the bottom of the pie dish – bake for 10 minutes. Now you make the chocolate custard filling, super easy takes about 10 minutes. Once the custard is prepared, scatter the fresh blackberries over the crust, pour the custard over top and bake. This pie has to be chilled overnight, but worth the wait.

This chocolate blackberry pie is rich enough that all you need is a small piece to satisfy your sweet tooth craving. And, there are plenty of fresh nutritionally packed blackberries to consider this gluten-free dessert healthy-ish šŸ™‚ You will love it, I promise! Another chocolate pie I highly recommend is Gluten-Free Wildly Rich Chocolate Walnut PieĀ because all you need is a blender. How does that sound? I think you will be impressed with how the pie turns out šŸ™‚
