A whole-wheat crust and a filling made with reduced-fat milk and low-fat Greek yogurt in lieu of heavy cream make this dark, rich chocolate pie a bit more virtuous than others, and just as delicious. See more at



  • 1 1/4 Cups whole-wheat pastry flour
  • 1/4 Cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 Teaspoon salt
  • 7 Tablespoons (100 grams) cold unsalted butter, cubed
  • 2-4 Tablespoons cold water

Egg Wash:

  • 1 egg white
  • 1 Tablespoon powdered sugar


  • 6 Ounce high-quality dark chocolate (60% cacao), broken into pieces
  • 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 1/2 Cup reduced-fat milk
  • 1/2 Cup plain, low-fat Greek yogurt
  • 2 Tablespoons white whole-wheat flour
  • 1/2 Cup powdered sugar


Step 1

  • Prepare dough according to these directions: whole-wheat pie crust recipe.

Step 2

  • While crust is cooling, prepare the filling. Place chocolate and butter in a large saucepan. Slowly melt over low heat, stirring often.

Step 3

  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and yogurt, then add the milk. Add the flour and whisk well to combine.

Step 4

  • When chocolate is melted, turn heat off. Pour a small amount of the egg mixture into the chocolate mixture (about 2 tablespoons), whisking constantly. Keep pouring the egg mixture, slowly, whisking, until incorporated.

Step 5

  • Sift the powdered sugar through a fine-mesh strainer into the chocolate-egg mixture. Whisk until everything is well-incorporated.

Step 6

  • Pour mixture into the prepared pie crust. Bake 45-60 minutes at 350 degrees F, shielding the crust with foil strips if you need to bake longer than 45 minutes. Pie is ready when the center is slightly puffed and a toothpick inserted in it comes out clean. Cool 2 hours in pan on a wire rack before slicing and serving.
