Chocolate Almond Butter Mousse Pie

Calling all nut butter lovers!  This Chocolate Almond Butter Mousse Pie is a must try! It starts with a date-sweetened almond pecan crust.  Then it’s filled with a luxurious almond butter chocolate mousse.  This pie may have a few steps to make it, but it’s completely no-bake and very simple despite the long instruction list.  It’s worth every minute.

This pie kind of reminded me of my chocolate mousse pie.  It’s also similar to my chocolate pumpkin mousse pie.  You really can’t go wrong when you are talking about any chocolate mousse!


This rich and creamy pie is no-bake, vegan, gluten free AND paleo approved!  So it’s basically for everyone and needs to be a staple at your holiday dessert party.  Trust me! I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

If you need a nut-free version, you can make the crust out of sunflower and pumpkin seeds and then use sunflower butter in the filling.  Another great idea would be to sprinkle some coarse ground sea salt on top.  Yum!  I will be trying that next time for sure!

We also filmed this short video on how to make this pie.

    For the crust

    For the filling


      For the crust:

      1. In a food processor , combine the almonds, pecans and dates. Blend until the mixture comes together. You may need to add a few drops of water to make it stick. Once you have a sticky mixture, press it into a greased pie plate . Place in the fridge to set while you make the filling.

      For the filling:

      1. In a small sauce pan , heat the almond butter, chocolate chips, cacao powder, 2 T maple syrup and almond milk. Stir until the chips are melted and everything is well mixed. Set aside.
      2. Open the can of refrigerated coconut milk and scoop the fatty white part out into a mixing bowl with the other 2 T maple syrup . You can save the remaining water for smoothies.
      3. Using the whipping attachment on your mixer , whip the into a cream. Once it looks creamy, you can gently fold the chocolate mixture until everything is mixed together well.
      4. Pour the finished mixture into the crust and place back in the fridge to set. It should set in about 1 hour.

      1. Thank you so much for sharing this! My husband has to gain 30 pounds (post treatment for cancer) and I need lots of high calorie, somewhat healthy foods. This one should work - will be making it tomorrow.
          1. Thanks, Melissa. I just put the pie in the fridge to set and licked the bowl. YUM!!!! I hope he likes it because I can definitely see myself eating this entire pie!
              1. MY HUSBAND LOOOOOVES IT!!! The consistency is perfect for him (lost most of his saliva from radiation treatment). I will definitely this recipe with vegan and head &a neck cancer groups.
      2. Melissa I have seen several recipes asking yyou to refrigerate the coconut milk and remove the cream. Mine never has thick cream like that. There is usually only a 1/4 of cream harder at the top. Is it because I buy the kind without gar gumgum?
      3. This looks amazing!!! I have everything to make this EXCEPT for the pecans. Do you think I could make it solely with almonds for the crust?
      4. This is what I have been searching for a long time now. Any specific recipes on soaked grains(quinoa, millet, etc.)instead of flour in vegan baking? Appreciate You Annette
      5. I have canned coconut cream on hand. If I use that instead of separating coconut milk and using its cream, how much do you think I should use? Very excited to try this! Thanks!
      6. Hi! So I just tried making this last night and it didn't turn out as planned! The filling looks too dark and it tastes just like chocolate and coconut...I can't taste the almond butter at all! I was particularly excited about this recipe as there is a non-vegan almond butter chocolate pie at Trader Joe's and I was hoping this would be a good alternative. I'm not sure what I did wrong. I used raw almond butter as I'm trying to be mostly oil free. If I just used more almond butter, would that be sufficient for it to set, or do I have to use the coconut milk? What else could I use instead of coconut milk to actually taste the almond butter? Thanks! Wendy
        1. The coconut milk helps create a mousse-like texture. If you are not vegan, you can whip heavy cream instead of full fat coconut milk.
      7. Hi! I'm making his right now & my coconut milk didn't firm up in the fridge, I had it in there all day & night. Any suggestions?
        1. Some brands aren't as good as others. Did you use full fat coconut milk? The low fat version will not work. Also, I find that the Thai Kitchen brand works best.
          1. That's the brand I bought. Not sure what happened. I put it in the freezer and that seemed to help. Still looks good so I'm going with it. Happy Thanksgiving!
