Chocolate Pudding Pie and Healthier Chocolate Treats (eCookbook!)

This chocolate pudding pie is super easy and comes together faster than any other pie I’ve ever made.  The filling made from instant pudding mix, so it takes like 10 minutes start to finish, and then you just let it chill in the fridge for two hours.  That’s my favorite thing to do these days…chill for two hours.  So it’s not surprising I like a pie to do the same 😉

Chocolate Pudding Pie

So it’s been a little over two months since #FreshCoastRetreat and I’m having major withdrawals.  I miss the amazing inspirational sessions and the delicious meals.  I miss the fantastic fireside chats and beautiful sunsets.  I miss all the incredible people, and I want to go back… right.now.

Chocolate Pudding Pie

One of the people on #FreshCoastRetreat was Amy from Amy’s Healthy Baking.  Amy’s blog focuses on, you guessed it, healthy baking!  She published a cookbook called Healthier Chocolate Treats, and is now turning that cookbook into an eCookbook!  This works great for me, as I was able to pull it up on my phone and buy the ingredients while at the grocery store, without having to write the ingredients down ahead of time, or lug around a cookbook!  Truthfully, it shouldn’t have been hard to remember because I already had everything except for the graham crackers and instant pudding!  But still, the “e” version is such a helper in the store!

Chocolate Pudding Pie

This recipe combined two of my favorite desserts: pie and pudding.  I love pudding because it reminds me of my childhood.  I’m not sure why, as my mom wasn’t huge on sweets, but for some reason, pudding just takes me back!  I gave it a little “maturity” with some fresh raspberries and mint as a garnish.  Garnish = grown up.  Obviously.

The pudding in the filling is sugar-free, and there is no added sugar in the crust, so this dessert is a little less sweet than most.  If you like sweet desserts, you may want to add a tablespoon or two of sugar (though that will obviously make it less healthy).

Chocolate Pudding Pie

Amy’s book is available now, and you can purchase it here.  It’s full of healthier chocolate recipes such as: strawberry banana chocolate chip muffins, chocolate kettle corn, molten chocolate cake, and s’mores cheesecake bars.  All recipes come with nutritional information at the end, and the beginning starts with the basics of equipment and ingredients!  There are three chapters: Breakfast (yay chocolate for breakfast!), Snacks, and Desserts (obvi).  Pick up your copy here!

The Elements
  • 12 full chocolate graham cracker sheets
  • 1 TBSP melted butter (unsalted)
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 (2.1 oz) package fat-free, sugar-free chocolate instant pudding mix
  • 2½ cups nonfat milk
Procedure
  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. In a food processor, process the graham crackers until crushed into fine crumbs.  Mix with the butter and egg white and press into your pie plate.  Bake for 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, make the pudding according to instructions on the box.
  4. Allow the crust to cool completely, then fill the pudding, then let chill in fridge for at least 2 hours.
The Verdict
This pie is super easy and quick to put together. If you like your desserts on the sweeter side, consider adding a tablespoon or two of sugar (maybe more, just add one at a time and taste it). My husband likes his desserts sweeter, so I would probably do this next time and taste as I go :)

    I’m all about those easy recipes, and a few minutes of prep and then chill? YES, sign me up! Having major withdrawals of seeing you girl! And I know exactly what you mean about pudding being nostalgic – my mom and I would always make it when I was growing up! Pudding pie will definitely be in the works this summer.

    Oh Lynn, you’re just the sweetest!! I’m truly touched by what you wrote — that means the world to me! ❤️❤️ I’m so glad you enjoyed the chocolate pudding pie too! I’ve been having #FreshCoastRetreat withdrawals too… It’s why I wore the t-shirt Liz gave us just yesterday. Miss you so much, lovely lady! 😘
