Buñuelo Chocolate Pudding Pie (Paleo & Low Carb)

There's not enough time in December to share all the recipes I want so I'm trying my best to keep up and share as much as I can! This time I wanted to keep it a little fun, festive and a little bit traditional.


Let me introduce you to these Buñuelo Chocolate Pudding Pies. They are inspired by this holiday season, my grandma. Such a Mexican classic, specially during this time of the year... buñuelos, which is basically a fried sweet tortilla covered with cinnamon and sugar.



This version is healthier, gluten free, paleo and low carb.

These little pies are just perfect for this holiday season! All the chocolate cheer in a bite starting with the cinnamon buñuelo pie crust, the creamy chocolate pudding filling and the toppings... more chocolate and a touch of a graham cracker.



The filling is made by our beloved avocado. Creamy and dreamy magical ingredient, plus it's a great way to incorporate some fiber, nutrients and healthy fats at the same time with some almond milk, cacao powder and granulated monk fruit.



The sweetness comes from my favorite, granulated monk fruit, you know that I'm a fan and that it's my staple when it comes to baking and cooking some recipes. We also get a discount when we use the code PURELYHL at Lakanto's checkout... double win!



Here's what you'll need for this recipe!

The ingredient list may be long but there are a lot of the staple here! Don't worry, plus the combination of these ingredients work like magic! Starting from the crust, the filling to the toppings! A good and change of texture with that crunch of the graham cracker and chocolate.



The chocolate I use is from Jojo's, the ingredients are super simple and I really like that they are just more than a basic chocolate, they have amazing toppings that make them taste even better and really step up the recipe to a whole new level.



Here's how you can make this recipe, and honestly it's super easy to make and after you can store them in the freezer! Perfect for meal preps too!
