This gluten-free brookie pie combines my favorite two things into one delicious dessert. It has a layer of brownies topped with a layer of chocolate chip cookies, and is the perfect sweet treat to bake for any occasion!

If you guys are looking for the PERFECT dessert, I’ve got you covered. This insanely delicious, gluten-free brookie pie is here to satisfy all of your sweet cravings.

In case you guys aren’t familiar with the term, a “brookie” is a mix of a brownie and cookie. Killer combo, I know. I combined two of my favorite recipes, my fudgy almond butter brownies + classic chocolate chip cookies, to make this beauty.

If you aren’t a fan of the two together, you can go check out each individual recipe and try them on their own!

Brookie Pie

The brownie/cookie duo gives you the best of both worlds- a crunchy, golden top with a soft-baked, moist center. It might seem like a complex recipe, but its actually really easy to throw together!

One tip I have for keeping the mess to a minimum is to start with the ingredients for the brownies first, and then swap them with the cookie ingredients to keep the counter cleared. You can use the same bowl, measuring spoons and cups for both layers.

What you’ll need to make brookie pie:

I made these as a pie before, but recently have been making them into bars using a 9 x 9 baking pan. Here’s what you’ll need for this recipe:

Brownie layer:

  • almond butter
  • maple syrup
  • coconut sugar
  • cocoa powder
  • eggs
  • baking soda
  • salt

Chocolate Chip Cookie Layer:

  • almond flour
  • oat flour
  • eggs
  • olive oil
  • coconut sugar
  • vanilla extract
  • baking soda
  • salt
  • chocolate chips

This dessert is SO good as is, but we love it with some vanilla ice cream! It’s a great option to bring over to a holiday dinner or dinner party.

We are definitely team under-baked desserts in our house. Depending on your preference, there are two baking times you can choose from-

For under-baked, I recommend baking for 22-25 minutes. It will be a little harder to slice, but you can spoon your servings out when ready to serve!

If you want a slightly less gooey, but still soft texture, I suggest baking for 30 minutes. I recommend this baking time if you’re making this dessert to serve to guests. It will slice up more neatly.

This gluten-free brookie pie really combines all of my favorites flavors. It’s chocolatey, sweet, and even a little bit salty. Did I mention it’s dairy-free too?

I’m so excited to finally share this one with you guys!!! Based off of the responses I got on Instagram when I teased this recipe, I know you’re going to love it.

bROWNIE lAYER

  • 1 cup 1 almond butter. Mine was made from roasted almonds, with no added oil or sugar

  • 1/3 cup 1/3 pure maple syrup

  • 1/4 cup 1/4 coconut sugar

  • 1/4 cup 1/4 cocoa powder

  • 1 1 egg

  • 1/2 tsp 1/2 baking soda

  • 1/4 tsp 1/4 salt

  • COOKIE LAYER
  • 1 + 1/2 cups 1 + 1/2 almond flour

  • 1/2 cup 1/2 oat flour

  • 1 1 egg

  • 1/3 cup 1/3 olive oil

  • 1/2 cup 1/2 coconut sugar or brown sugar

  • 1 tsp 1 vanilla extract

  • 1 tsp 1 baking soda

  • 1/4 tsp 1/4 salt

  • 1/3 cup 1/3 dairy-free chocolate chips

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 F.
  • Starting with the brownie layer, whisk together the egg, almond butter, maple syrup and coconut sugar in a medium sized bowl. If your almond butter is nearing the end of the jar and isn’t smooth, I recommend using a blender for this step so everything gets fully incorporated.
  • Add in the cocoa powder, baking soda and salt and mix until well combined.
  • Flatten batter into a greased or parchment lined 9″ pie dish or 11 x 7 baking dish and set aside.
  • Rinse your bowl and whisk together the egg, olive oil, coconut sugar and vanilla for the cookie layer.
  • Pour in the almond flour, oat flour, baking soda, salt and chocolate chips. Mix well.
  • Scoop over the brownie layer and flatten down.
  • Bake for about 30-35, until the top is browned and a toothpick comes out clean. For more of an under-baked texture, bake for 25-30 minutes. Baking times will vary depending on dish type and size, so I suggest checking it after 25 minutes.
  • Let cool completely before slicing. If baking in a pie dish, I recommend spooning your servings onto a plate.
  • Store leftovers in an air-tight container for up to 1 week.
  • You can freeze the pie whole or cut into pieces for up to 3 months. I suggest letting it thaw out the night before, and warming it in the oven for 5 minutes before serving.

    Made this tonight and it was delicious! My family loved it. I used coconut oil and brown sugar instead of coconut because that’s what I had. Also added walnuts to the cookie. Made it the gooey way. Super yummy.

    Hi, I LOVED the recipe! It was delicious and my whole family loved it. Quick question- how many calories approximately does each bar have?

  6. This was so good! I was feeling kinda lazy so just made the cookie layer, baked in a loaf pan for only 16 mins and wow, was awesome!

  7. Another one that does not disappoint!! I’m obsessed with the mix of gooey chocolate brownie with the cookie, amazing!

  8. jackie miller

    WOW this was incredible. I topped it with chocolate fudge ice cream and it was heavenly, Thanks so much for this recipe!!!

  9. Sop Salinas

    my two favorite things in one! went for the underbaked option cause I like things borderline raw and ate the whole thing in 2 days. So so good!

  10. I made this vegan by subbing the eggs with flax eggs and it came out perfect! I loved the option to slightly undercook for gooiness, too 😉

    • Thank you, Kate! So happy it worked out with flax eggs 🙂

    • Jasmine

      What can I use to replace the eggs in the recipe?

      • I haven’t personally tried it, but I believe a flax or chia egg can work in place of eggs. To make 1 chia egg, combine 1 tbsp of chia seeds with 2 1/2 tbsp of water
