Dark Chocolate Brownie Pie from Pidges Pantry

If you don’t have a Thanksgiving dessert, you should give this one a second look!  Easy to make as a large pie or mini pies as I have (I love mini desserts)!

Gooey, soft brownie center with crisp and crunchy pecans on the top.  These pies will make you say “pecan-what?” to that traditional and sugar filled pecan pie!

Dark Chocolate Brownie Pecan Pies {whole wheat}
 

Ingredients
  • whole wheat pie dough
  • ½ c unsalted butter
  • ½ c coconut palm sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ c unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¾ c whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 c dark chocolate chips
  • 1 c pecan halves

Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Roll out your pie dough to ¼” thick and place into pie pans, trimming around the edges so you don’t have any overhang.
  3. In a small saucepan, melt the butter and sugar together and cook over low heat until the sugar is dissolved (about 1-2 minutes). Remove from the heat and cool for at least 5 minutes.
  4. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs and vanilla together. Slowly pour in the butter and sugar mixture while whisking. Then add the cocoa powder, salt, and baking powder and whisk until just combined. Whisk in the flour until just combined (do not overmix). Fold in the chocolate chips and pour into the prepared pie shells.
  5. Arrange the pecan halves over the tops of the pie(s).
  6. Bake at 350 for 45-55 minutes or until the centers are cooked through (like a brownie). Cool for 10 minutes and serve.
