Paleo Chocolate Haupia Pie Squares


Made Paleo Chocolate Haupia Pie Squares a few months back for my baking club. The this month we were focusing on pies and the different types of crust. 


The Paleo Chocolate Haupia Pie Squares were so yummy and easy to make. I could have easily ate the whole batch, being that they are grain free, gluten free and refined sugar free why not eat the whole batch. Even if you don't do a Paleo diet you must try this recipe. I also added sliced strawberries on top to add more color. The Paleo Chocolate Haupia Pie Squares came from Living Healthy with Chocolate

Paleo Chocolate Haupia Pie Squares (grain free, gluten free, refined sugar free)

Ingredients

Chocolate Crust:

cup raw almonds
cup raw pecans
10 large medjool dates (about 1 cup)
6 tablespoons raw cacao powder

Haupia:
½ cup arrowroot powder
¾ cup water
1 can full fat coconut milk
2 tablespoons raw honey
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ cup dark chocolate, chopped or chocolate chips

Instructions

Chocolate Crust:
1. Grind the almonds and pecans, one at the time, in a food processor leaving a few small chunks
2. Remove pits from dates and process in the food processor until creamy
3. Mix all crust ingredients until well combined and then evenly spread it on the bottom of an 8x8-inch pan lined with parchment paper

Haupia:
1. Combine the arrowroot powder and water in a bowl and mix until all the arrowroot has dissolved
2. Add the arrowroot mixture to a saucepan along with the coconut milk and raw honey
3. Slowly cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly until it thickens
4. Remove from the stove and stir in the vanilla extract
5. Pour mixture over the crust and refrigerate overnight or until the coconut layer is firm
Cut into squares and drizzle with melted dark chocolate or chocolate chips. I like using a Ziploc bag to drizzle the chocolate. Cut a small hole on one end of the bag and fill it with the melted chocolate.
