Chocolate Walnut Silk Pie 1 Picture

Ingredients

  • 1 cup walnuts
  • ¾ cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup egg substitute
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate milk (I made my own to avoid the sugary pre-packaged stuff)
  • ½ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup of sugar free maple syrup

Preparation

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Puree everything in a food processor (I used my Vitamix) until VERY smooth, with no visible pieces remaining. This is a "silk" pie, so everything must be uniform throughout. Bake in a pie pan for 70-80 mins, or until almost set. (The pie will finish setting while cooling.)

Result-absolutely delicious!!! Feel free to add more sweetener if after you taste-test the batter and you desire more sweetness, but the milk and syrup should be enough!
