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:
Yeasty, rustic dinner rolls that are soft on the inside and have a beautiful crunch on the outside. A perfect addition to any meal! For easier prep: skip making the dough and pick up a tub of our Pizza Dough at any New Seasons Market or Chuck's Produce.
BE SURE TO HAVE ON HAND:
1 package Kember’s Gluten Free Pizza Crust Mix
1 Tablespoon sugar
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 large egg white (or use egg-free instructions on package)
1 teaspoon cider vinegar
Follow the instructions on the package to make up one batch of Kember’s Gluten Free Pizza Crust Mix.
Place batter in a resealable plastic bag. Cut the corner of the bag and pipe out little mounds of batter on to the parchment paper. The mounds should be approximately 1 1/2″ in diameter or so and you should get a total of 12 mounds.
Mist the tops with cooking spray and cover with a light towel for 30 minutes to rise.
During the last 10 minutes of rise time, you can preheat your oven to 450 degrees and be sure to place a pizza stone or baking sheet in the oven while it’s preheating to get it piping hot!
Once your oven and stone/baking sheet are fully preheated, slide the parchment with the risen rolls onto the stone/baking sheet and bake for 5-7 minutes for until dinner rolls are golden brown.
Immediately remove rolls from parchment paper and serve or if you are not serving them right away be sure you get them onto a cooling rack so the bottom crust stays nice and crispy.
Optional: Brush with olive oil, sprinkle with herbs or garlic salt.
Make ahead and freeze: Cut down the baking time by two minutes and let them cool completely on a wire rack. Place in a sealed bag and freeze for up to one month. When you are ready to serve them just pop them into a fully preheated 375 degree oven (with the stone/baking sheet preheated in there too!) and bake for 3-5 minutes or until golden brown and warm all the way through.
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.
Got Zucchini? It’s that time of year where zucchini is coming out our ears! Here’s a quick and easy fried zucchini recipe using our Pizza Crust Mix:
This crazy-amazing recipe was concocted by my friend Joyie. So thankful she’s allowing me to share this with you all! We grilled this pizza on the BBQ, which I highly recommend because the smoky flavor from grilling over open flame is the perfect combo with sweet pineapple and spicy jalapeno cream.
One pizza crust, made from Kember's Gluten Free Pizza Crust Mix or One Kember's Gluten Free already made Pizza Dough.
1/2 to 1 cup red pizza sauce
7-8 Canadian Bacon slices
1 cup fresh pineapple chunks
Red onion, sliced into rings
Optional: a slight sprinkling of dairy-free cheese (or mozzarella cheese if you can eat dairy.
1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup full-fat coconut milk
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
3 cloves fresh garlic, minced
3 Tablespoon fresh parsley
1 teaspoon dried dill
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 Tablespoons jalapenos, with seeds, coarsely chopped
FOR PIZZA: Prepare one Pizza Crust Mix or Pizza Dough as directed on package. For toppings, use red sauce of your choice, Canadian Bacon, fresh pineapple, and red onion.
FOR JALAPENO CREAM: In a blender, combine all ingredients. Blend on high until completely blended. Place a cup of the jalapeno cream in a resealable sandwich baggie. Cut the corner of the baggie and drizzle jalapeno cream on fully cooked Hawaiian pizza. Enjoy!
I was a chicken. BBQ-ing Pizza intimidated the heck out of me. I know my way around a kitchen pretty well, but get me in front of a BBQ and I totally choke. When we came out with the Pizza Crust Mix the very first thing people wanted to know was…can you cook it on the BBQ? After reading up on all the ways to BBQ a pizza, I decided to try my hand at it and make our GF Pizza Crust ROCK on the barbie.
I tried several methods, but ultimately there was one method that was a complete standout from the rest. And the best news is that it was MUCH MUCH easier than I thought. We had some friends over and went to town grilling pizza! It turned out to be such a fun experience for everyone. The smoky flavor and buttery char on the crust adds a mouthwatering flavor that is to…die…for.
Here’s how to do it …
Tips for success! There are two things to know about topping a pizza on the BBQ. #1 Do NOT pile toppings on too thick, and #2 Saute your veggies ahead of time. There is no heating element above your crust on the BBQ so the toppings do not cook as quickly as they would in the oven. Following these two rules of thumb will ensure an awesome BBQ’d pizza!
Everyone at the table was asking for more of these delicious Strawberry Shortcakes! Easy to make and we had thumbs-up all around. Here’s how…
Delicious sweet and savory filling ideas! What could be better than food in food. Really now!?! There is so much fun to be had with this quick and easy “thin pancake”. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack. Crepes are delicious anytime, anywhere. Have a crepe bar with several of the filling ideas below for your next gathering to make it a special experience for everyone young and old.
Don’t have a crepe pan? Good! You don’t need one! A frying pan works great. Whip up a batch of Kember's Gluten Free Crepe Mix and lightly coat with cooking spray. Pour a 1/4-1/3 cup batter in center, pick up handle of pan to slowly rotate pan one time (as if it was on an axis), cook for 1 min and then flip for an additional 30 sec-1 min, and VOILA! You have yourself a crepe.
On the Sweet Side…

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.
