I was on the hunt for a new pie idea and ran across a recipe for Kentucky Derby Pie in one of my Grandma’s old cookbooks. The original recipe called for lard, corn syrup and other gunk SO I modified it to clean up the ingredients. Man oh man, this is a winner! I mean honestly – a chocolate pecan pie?! Delicious. This one is also dairy-free, soy-free, gluten-free and can be made grain-free! Makes 8 servings. Okay – if you eat pie like us then maybe 4-6 servings ha!
- To make grain-free, replace gluten-free flour in filling with ¼ cup arrowroot starch. Also, use a grain-free pie crust recipe (like this one here!)
- To make vegan, replace the eggs with an egg replacer powder from Bob’s Red Mill – use as directed.
- I always use Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips while making desserts with chocolate chips because they are free from so many allergens. I trust their quality and commitment to allergy-friendly products.
- For gluten-free flour blend in this, I use Bob’s Red Mill GF All-Purpose 1:1 blend (the blue bag!). It works well for so many recipes and is easy to find!
