Chocolate Cherry Pie


The other day I had someone on the website request a cherry pie and I did my best.  This was my first attempt and it came out amazing.  Some people might not like it so feel free to tweak it to your taste buds.  The chocolate after taste from the crust is heaven to me after the sweetness from the cherries.  I challenge you to not eat the whole pie when finished. :)

Serves: 8
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees fahrenheit
  2. Combine all crust ingredients EXCEPT water in a bowl and mix well. You should have a crumbly mixture
  3. Next slowly add water in 1 Tbsp increments and mix well to help you form a dough
  4. Once you have a dough, grease your cake pan with coconut oil and using your hands spread your crust throughout your pan and up the sides ensuring it is even around the pan (you will have leftover which you can crumble on top)
  5. Place your crust in the oven and bake for 8 minutes
  6. While your crust is baking, place your water and honey in a saucepan over medium heat and stir until well combined
  7. Slowly add in your arrowroot powder and continually stir until your sauce thickens
  8. Add in all your cherries and then continue to stir over the heat for 2-3 minutes
  9. Remove from the heat and add your almond extract and stir well
  10. You should have your crust out of the oven now, pour your cherry mixture into your crust and then put back in the oven
  11. Bake for 15-20 minutes
  12. Remove and let cool and Enjoy

  1. This tastes amazing, but i must have done something wrong with the filling … it’s pretty soupy, so I can’t really cut it into pie pieces. Thoughts?

  2. This is a rad idea. I’ve just swapped to Paleo and having a bunch of people over for dinner on Saturday. My question is, could I swap the cheeries for another fruit? Such as strawberries/rhubarb?

  3. Jason thanks so much for stopping by. I am so glad you mastered it and they loved it. Your thank yous make what I do easy :)
