I don't know if this is what you are looking for. But I have a recipe of Dana Carpender's.
German Chocolate Pie Dana
Crust

1 cup Angel type
1 cup finely chopped pecans
6 tablespoons melted butter
1/3 cup vanilla way through the powder
3 tablespoons of Splenda
Filling
4 ounces softened cream cheese
1 package sugar-free chocolate instant pudding
One package sugar-free instant vanilla pudding
2 ¾ cup low carb milk
½ cup angel coconut
Topping
½ cup angel coconut
½ cup chopped pecans
2 tablespoons butter1 tablespoon vanilla
3 tablespoons Splenda
Garnish
½ cup heavy cream
Combine all crust ingredients well. Put into a 10 inch pie plate that has been sprayed with a nonstick cooking spray. Press firmly into place building all the way up the sides. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes until golden brown. Let cool.
Beat cream cheese until smooth. Beat in the two pudding mixes and the low carb milk. Fold in the coconut. Spread this in the pie shell.
In a big skillet over medium low heat, sauté the coconut and pecans in the butter until the coconut is golden. Stir in the vanilla and the Splenda, and let the mixture cool. Scatter it evenly over the pie. Chill several hours. Whip the cream and place on top.
Angel Coconut Dana
3 tablespoons erythritol
1/3 cup boiling water
2 cups shredded coconut meat
Dissolve erythritol in the water. Stir in coconut. Cover the bowl, and let it sit for 10 to 15 minutes.

fudgy-brownie blender pie

I was surprised to like this so much since I was more or less just trying out what I had available, but it really pleases me.

In the blender,put

4 extra large eggs
1 C hwc
1 C almond milk
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla
4-6 Tlb melted butter (I didn't do an exact measurement)
2 Tlb melted coconut butter or oil
6 Tlb Hershey's Special dark cocoa powder
1/2 C granulated Splenda
1/2 C granulated erythritol
2 Tlb Truvia (which, I know is mostly more erythritol
Blend thoroughly.
Quickly pulse in 1/2 C chopped pecans and 1/2 C unsweetened flaked coconut.

Pour into buttered 9 in pie pan (actually, I couldn't quite get it all in, so may try deep dish pan next time)

Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. I didn't hear the timer, so mine went overtime, cracking on top. I think this is why it has a brownie texture which isn't dry, but isn't a cream pie texture.

If you try it, I'm open to suggestions for change.

I think it sounds fabulous. Maybe I will fix this for my dinner tonight!

I do mine through tinypic but I know there are many other sources available. I've seen many posts telling how to add a picture here on the board, you could do a search for "posting picture" and something will come up to help you.

Let's see if this works.

Oh, it did work and my stove top is nasty. The pie really is quite dark, but DH just arrived home from a week long trip and declared it a hit.

I think that the next time, I'll leave out the granulated Splenda and use liquid sucralose plus the erythritol and maybe a little Truvia. The cocoa powder accounts for 18 grams of carbohydrates in the whole pie, so a reduction in that area is needed to keep it low.

Lazy Girl - thanks for the pic, looks good. I only count 6 carbs for 6 Tb. of cocoa, I deduct the fiber which is 2g. per Tb. so 1 net carb per Tb.. It seems to work for me, I know some people don't go by net carbs. I find the special dark cocoa very chocolately though so you could probably cut that down to 3-4 Tbs. and still get the same taste. Just a thought.

I didn't even look at the fiber! Normally, that is the second thing I check.
Today, the pie had a creamier texture even though I liked the brownie-like results also. I think I could serve this to non low carbers.

thank you, muchly, Pami. That looks much better. Mz Duh, here, didn't even consider cropping the thing. It was good to the last crumb. It's funny that I never, never craved chocolate until reading the recipes on this forum. Now, I want something everyday.

Fat bombs are not something that I consider to be my own weight loss arsenal, but I keep chocolate ones just in case there's no other chocolate concoction available.

Chocolate every day is a part of survival!

I have a variation of the chocolate version in the oven right now and it smells like heaven! I used all coconut instead of pecans, and a cup of coconut milk (beverage, not canned) instead of almond milk. And I added a 1/4 cup of PolyD for texture and because I had it.

Might have to have this for breakfast tomorrow.

Made this tonight with the original recipe except used a can of coconut milk instead of hwc. Chilled it 2 hours in the refridge and it is delicious. Portion control may be a problem!

DH made the coconut version this week with 3/4 c erythritol as the only sweetner. The texture was so good. I realize that with chocolate, we'll add in some liquid sucraslose and stevia, but the erythritol is great alone with coconut.

OK....!
I can see that this coconut pie will be on the Menu for Thanksgiving

I found it on another food blog, but she linked the source to LCF .....so this is better than where I found the recipe.

I think portion control may be an issue...

Thank your for my Thanksgiving dessert!

(920 to be precise- or 115 per serving) I used drops of liquid Splenda (someone started talking to me, and I lost count, so I'm not sure how many drops; I was shooting for 12), but other than that, I followed the recipe as written. I've eaten 2 servings in the past 3 hours I'm counting that 2nd one as supper.

Now that sounds like a great idea!

Now for an easy blender pecan pie! I did find one on a blog where her husband loved it (she'd made quite a few fails, apparently), and I've got it Pinterested. It looks fairly simple and I'm all about quick and few ingredients. Need to give both these a try before Thanksgiving.

A blender chocolate cream pie (sans coconut) would be nice!
