Friends, enjoy a warm slice of my Crustless Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Pie that I’ve been making for years. This is a great gluten-free option when you need a special dessert.

What I love about this recipe is you can swap out the chocolate chips for your favorite flavored chips! Or, change it up. Add half chocolate, half white chocolate.  You may also love my Almond Flour Chocolate Brownies recipe!

This crustless chocolate chip pie is like a big, super-thick chocolate chip cookie, but made into a pie. It’s ooey, gooey, and great served with scoops of vanilla ice cream.

Also try some hot fudge on top to really make it amazing! Buy Trader Joe’s fudge, or you can make my best homemade chocolate sauce, which keeps nicely in the fridge. And also goes quickly, if all you need is a spoonful a day (it’s that good). LOL.

How do you make a crustless gluten-free pie?

There’s no acutal pie dough crust in this recipe! That’s right, this Crustless Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Pie actually makes its own “crust.” Making it gluten-free, I used almond flour in place of regular flour.

Tips and Substitutions:

  • Bake in a regular pie pan or a springform pan. Make sure and use cooking spray for each pan, so the pie doesn’t stick.
  • Bake in a heart shaped pan for Valentine’s Day.
  • We love traditional Toll House chocolate chips, but change up the pie and use your favorite flavored chips.
  • You can also add nuts, dates, cranberries to the batter.
  • Almond extract and nuts are optional.
  • Add cardamom to step up the flavor!
  • This is not a skillet cookie recipe. It’s not cooked in a skillet, and even though it’s gooey like one, it’s baked in the oven and is very different.
  • Serve with vanilla ice cream!

Optional to bake in your favorite heart pan

Every heart pan is different, so make sure and check the baking time to not over cook the pie! This is a fun pie to make for your sweetheart!

I started making this recipe back in the 2000’s when my kids were much younger. Instead of cookies, we made a big pie, and it was a huge hit with our kids!  This recipe has been posted on RE since 2015.

We brought this to a party last week, so I pulled out the recipe and everyone loved it.

It was a delicious weekend, full of conversations and people and great dishes and desserts. 

Enjoy!
