Are you wanting to try a new pie but need one that is gluten-free? We made this Gluten Free S’mores Brownie Pie for Pi day. I love to bake sweet and delicious desserts and I try to make some that are gluten-free for our friends that have allergies. For more pie recipes try these.
Gluten-Free S’mores Brownie Pie
This pie is part brownie and part pie. It starts with a gluten-free graham cracker crust and filled with a brownie batter and top it off with marshmallow meringue and a bittersweet chocolate layer. What’s not to like?
I can’t wait for you to try it.
Gluten Free S'mores Pie
- 1 1/2 cups of gluten free graham cracker crumbs
- 5 Tablespoon melted butter
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup all purpose gluten free flour add additional 2 TB
- 2 Tablespoon Gluten Free Flour
- 1/8 teaspoon xanthan gum (if your flour doesn't have it)
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/3 cup dutch processed unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 cup sugar
- 8 Tablespoon unsalted butter , melted and cooled
- 1 egg
- 1 egg yolk
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 packet unflavored powdered gelatin 1 scant Tablespoon
- 1/2 cup cool water 4 oz
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
- 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 3 oz bittersweet chocolate chopped
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix the first 4 ingredients in a bowl and then mold into pie pan and up the sides. Bake for 15 minutes.
- Start mixing the brownie ingredients. My gluten free mix is in the link above. Or use your favorite mix. add all dry ingredients and then add butter, eggs and vanilla extract. Bake for 20 minutes.
- When done, refrigerate or freeze until cool.
- Start marshmallow layer. Take 2 oz of water and put in a bowl and sprinkle gelatin on top, let thicken. In heavy saucepan mix remaining water, sugar and cream of tartar. Use a candy thermometer and cook and stir until heat reaches 238 degrees. Add gelatin to stand mixer.
- Remove the pan from the heat and pour along the side into the stand mixer with a whisk attachment. Add salt and vanilla. This takes about 5 minutes and you will need to mix until it is thick and sticks to the whisk when lifted not runny. It should be shiny also.
- Spread on the brownie layer. Place in refrigerator 2 - 3 hours until firm. Then heat the chocolate in the microwave at 30 second intervals at 70 percent. Spread a thin layer on top of marshmallow. My suggestion is a THIN layer. This is a very rich dessert.
March 14 is Pi day. So we make pies for my daughter’s math class to celebrate. Can you imagine what a classroom with 25 pies looks like? Heaven! So I offered to make a gluten free one since I know a lot of the kids have allergies and I like to try new pies.
What is Pi day you ask? I took this straight from the website: Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th (3/14) around the world. Pi (Greek letter “π”) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant — the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter — which is approximately 3.14159.
And don’t we just need a reason to celebrate and eat pie? Of course, we do.
I was looking forward to trying it when my daughter got home today, but it was all gone. I thought with 25 pies there would be some leftovers. So I guess it was a hit.

That looks delicious, I love anything S’mores! I don’t eat gluten free, but I could make this with regular brownies, too! Yum!

Part pie and part brownie just sounds like complete genius to me! And this makes me wish I taught math so I could do things like host a Pi day!
I’ve never tried gluten free pie, but that looks delicious. I also wish I had been invited to that party you went to, what a fun idea! Love your recipes, keep them coming!
Yum, this looks delicious! I cannot wait to try this recipe. I recently was diagnosed with a gluten intolerance (luckily not a allergy) and have been try to find some good gluten free recipes. Store bought gluten free stuff just taste so blah.

I don’t have much experience with gluten free desserts. But this pie looks pretty amazing. So sad there wasn’t at least one piece of pie leftover for you!
You definitely had me at s’mores. That looks just incredible!
I have some gluten free friends who I definitely need to pass this recipe along too. Your whole site makes me want to bake all day long!
