Brookie Pie

If you guys are looking for the PERFECT dessert (aren’t we all?), look no further. 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 basically 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, go check out each individual recipe and try them on their own!

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!

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

If you want your brookie pie to be under-baked, I recommend baking for 25-30 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 35-40 minutes. I recommend this baking time if you’re making this dessert to serve to guests. It will slice up more neatly.

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.

This gluten-free brookie pie really combines all of my favorites flavors. It’s chocolatey, its 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.

NOTES:
I have not tested any other flour substitutes for this recipe!

bROWNIE lAYER

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

  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup

  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar

  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder

  • 1 egg

  • 1/2 tsp baking soda

  • 1/4 tsp salt

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

  • 1/2 cup oat flour

  • 1 egg

  • 1/3 cup olive oil

  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar or brown sugar

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1 tsp baking soda

  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 1/3 cup 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 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 to cover the dish.
  • Bake for 35-40, until the top is browned and a toothpick comes out clean. For more of an under-baked texture, bake for 25-30 minutes.
  • Let cool completely before slicing. The under-baked texture may not hold up well as slices, so 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.

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

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

    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!

  4. 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 😉
