Chocolate Chess Pie with Pecan Crust

Unlike the traditional chocolate chess pie loaded with sugar and processed evaporated milk, this version is made with simple ingredients, like pecans, figs, and coconut oil. The end result is a smooth and decadent pie filling loaded with rich chocolate flavor on top of a flaky pecan crust.




Since this version has no eggs, baking is not necessary. Both the filling and crust are quickly made with a food processor.  It takes roughly 10 minutes of active prep time and once assembled, the pie goes in the fridge. You honestly won’t believe how easy it is to prepare! Not only that, but it’s also delicious and kid-approved. An overall win for the entire family.
