Do you love the chocolate, almond, coconut combo of an Almond Joy candy bar? Then this pie is for you! Heaven in every bite. The chocolate pie crust is made with Kember’s Gluten Free Brownie Mix and it is truly the easiest pie crust I’ve ever made. Check out our Brownie Pie Crust blog post to learn how to do it.
WHAT YOU NEED TO MAKE THIS DELICIOUS PIE:
1 chocolate pie crust (see Brownie Pie Crust blog post)
1/3 cup cornstarch
pinch of salt
1/4 cup water
3/4 cup sugar
2 1/4 cup boiling water
2 egg whites stiffly beaten
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon almond extract
ALMOND CHIFFON FILLING:
This creamy cooked peanut butter pie filling is gluten, dairy and soy free and baked in a Kember’s Gluten Free Brownie Pie Crust made with our Brownie Mix. You can make the Brownie Pie Crust a day ahead but you will want to plan to eat the peanut butter pie the day you make it because it does not keep well overnight. Top this with your favorite whipped topping and you have a crowd pleaser!
We took our Kember’s Brownie Mix and turned it into a pie shell! Do you have a favorite pie recipe that calls for a graham cracker crust or a pre-baked pie shell? This is a quick and easy alternative that has the same great flavor of our rich and delicious brownies. Try this crust with our Peanut Butter Pie!
BE SURE TO HAVE ON HAND:
1 package Kember’s Gluten Free Brownie Mix
2 whole eggs, plus 1 yolk
1/2 cup oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
Two 9-inch pie plates (non-stick, and identical in shape and size)
Pie weights (such as dried beans or uncooked rice)
BROWNIE PIE CRUST:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease one of the pie pans with cooking spray.
Follow the instructions on the package to make up one batch of Kember’s Gluten Free Brownie Mix.
Place 1 cup of the brownie batter into your greased pie pan. Spray the entire bottom of a second, identical pie pan and place directly on top of the batter. Carefully press down so batter is forces up the edges of the pie pan, but not overflowing or oozing out of the sides. Place pie weights on top and put in preheated oven to bake for 23-25 min.
Remove pie weights and let cook on baking rack for 10 minutes. Gently remove the top pie pan and let crust cool completely.

There is something about the combination of chocolate and peppermint that just hits the spot. Gluten, dairy & soy free desserts are a scarcity at Holiday parties. If you’ve been thinking about a good dessert to bake this holiday season, think no more.
We baked our Kember’s Gluten Free Brownie Mix substituting the vanilla extract for the same amount of peppermint extract. Once they were completely cooled, we whipped up a batch of dairy/soy free “butter” cream frosting , then sprinkled with broken peppermint pieces. It is a festive way to add a little something special to an already delicious treat!
2.Gradually add sugar, one cup at a time, beating well on medium speed. Scrape sides and bottom of bowl often. When all sugar has been mixed in, icing will appear dry.
3.Add milk and beat at medium speed until light and fluffy. Keep bowl covered with a damp cloth until ready to use.
4.For best results, keep icing bowl in refrigerator when not in use. Refrigerated in an airtight container, this icing can be stored for 2 weeks. Rewhip before using.
