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!
