avatarDanielle Moore

Add a new spin to a campfire classic with this creamy s’mores pie that’s completely gluten-free!

Cozy up to this decadent treat for a recipe you don’t even need to leave home for. Made with four unique layers, it’s toasted to golden perfection using high-heat temperatures from your broiler. Serve it alongside you favorite hot chocolate for an indulgent night in.

Four Layers Of Crunchy, Creamy, Natural Sweetness

For the first layer, we use a combination of toasted almond flour, cinnamon, salt, coconut oil, and maple syrup to create a grain-free graham cracker crust. It then gets topped with a second layer of dark chocolate (filled with plenty of antioxidants) and a third layer of creamy almond butter filling.

For the final layer, we prepare a meringue topping made with whipped egg whites and cream of tartar. The key is to first whip the egg whites into stiff peaks for at least five minutes using an electric mixer. You’ll then lift the whisk out and flip it over to ensure the mixture stands straight up (like a mountain peak), before mixing in your cream of tartar.

How To Achieve A Campfire Brûlée

To brûlée the marshmallowy meringue on top, set your oven to high broil and place the layered pie on the highest baking rack near the top. This is to ensure your pie is as close to the heat source as possible.

You’ll also want to keep a watchful eye on it while it’s broiling, since the meringue can go from beautifully brûléed to completely charred in no time. Once it starts to brown, remove it immediately and top it all off with dark chocolate drizzle on top.

Helpful Tips To Get Started:

  • Don’t include any yolk in your meringue. It’s important to completely separate the egg whites from the egg yolk. This is easiest when the eggs are cold, so separate them first, then set the whites out to room temperature.
  • Know the difference between broiling and baking. Make sure to use the appropriate settings to switch your oven to broil. Unlike baking, broiling only pushes high-heat temperatures from the top of your oven (making it the ideal method for this recipe).
  • Choose dark chocolate with high percentages of cacao. Anything above 70 percent includes higher amounts of antioxidants and less sugars, dairy, and artificial sweeteners.
  • Use a blowtorch if you have one. For easier prep, you can also use this method to toast the meringue topping instead of broiling in the oven.
