This Chocolate Brownie Pie is the ultimate chocolate pie recipe made with gluten-free and nut-free ingredients! Super chocoatey and filled gooey brownies and topped with whipped cream.

This brownie pie is the ultimate chocolatey combination of two classic desserts! It has become our go-to dessert to serve all year around and especially for any holidays or occasions.

Twists on classic desserts are always a go-to over here. There is nothing about brownie and pie together that one wouldn’t love and this flakey pie crust filled with ooey gooey brownie batter is truly the ultra chocolate dessert to make. And if you use a store-bought pie crust, it makes it even easier to make this recipe. I like to get the gluten-free one from the freezer at Trader Joe’s. And my family demolishes this in a serving. My husband and I were standing over the counter eating it from the pie dish the first time we made it.

Tip: to save time use a store-bought crust! This makes it much easy and I usually find a gluten-free one in the freezer section at most grocery stores. Just thaw it it room temperature beforehand.

What ingredients are in brownie pie:

  • Unsalted butter – I haven’t tested vegan butter here but it should work well! Feel free to sub it if you can’t do dairy
  • Coconut sugar – I don’t recommend another sugar sub for this. This is my go-to unrefined sugar for baking and it adds great flavor and texture to the brownie filling
  • Eggs – I haven’t tried an egg replacement for this but flax eggs may work well too
  • Vanilla extract – a must have for the added flavor!
  • Cacao powder – or use cocoa powder if you have that instead
  • Gluten-free all purpose flour – I haven’t tested another sub but regular all-purpose flour should work well too
  • Chocolate chips – I love using dark chocolate chips but you can really use any chocolate chips or cut up your go-to chocolate bar
  • Pie crust of your choice – I used the Trader Joe’s gluten-free frozen one but you can use any go-to pie crust recipe or ready-to-bake crust

How to make gluten-free brownie pie:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  2. Line your pie tin with your pie crust
  3. Whisk together melted butter, coconut sugar, eggs and vanilla extract
  4. Add the cacao powder and gluten-free flour and mix until just combined
  5. Stir in ¾ cup of the chocolate chips
  6. Pour batter into pie crust
  7. Sprinkle remaining chocolate chips over the batter
  8. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until filling is cooked (if your pie crust is browning too fast, put aluminum foil on top)
  9. Allow the pie to cool for a bit and serve with whipped cream and cookie crumbs on top if desired

Tips for success:

  • You can use any type of chocolate your craving for this pie! Semi-sweet, dark chocolate, milk chocolate or even white chocolate or butterscotch chips!
  • For the crust of the pie, use your go-to recipe, pre-made crust. I typically do a pre-made crust to cut time, making this a really easy dessert to whip up last minute too
  • Plus you can also use brownie mix instead of making your own brownie batter if you want! One of my favorite parts about this recipe is how easy it is to make it work using what you have on hand
  • Store leftovers in the fridge for up to 5 days in an airtight container. Or you can even freeze the pie for up to 2 months and thaw overnight in the fridge to serve.
  • If you want to add more flavors to this, add in some crushed walnuts, pecans or anything too! I also love making a whipped cream topping but you can also get a store-bought one or serve with ice cream instead
