Chocolate Peacan Pie

ChocolatePeacanPie

I never was a big fan of Pecan Pie, until Bennett and I visited Austin, Texas for Thanksgiving. I fell in love but it is far from Paleo. I came home and was determined to make a gluten free healthy version of Pecan Pie. Mine is a bit different then the one we had in Texas; I added chocolate. I believe chocolate makes everything better.
