Gluten Free Derby Pie Bars

If you need a gluten free treat this Derby weekend, I’ve got you covered!  Derby pie is oh so satisfying and even better when it becomes easy finger food.  These are cut and served just like a brownie or cookie bar.  Made with gluten free baking powder and your choice of pecans or walnuts, they’ll be great to nibble on during the Run for the Roses or any time of year for that matter! And for an added bonus: You can use dark chocolate! :)

 Here’s what you’ll need:

  • ½ cup gluten free flour (I used Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 Baking Flour)

  • 1/3 cup coconut (palm) sugar

  • 1/3 cup cane sugar (or monk fruit sweetener is what I used here)

  • ½ cup (grass fed) butter, melted

  • 2 eggs, beaten

  • 1 cup chopped pecans (or walnuts) I LOVE PECANS!

  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips (semi-sweet will work just fine)

  • Square baking dish or stoneware  (8x8 or 9x9)



1-      Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and combine your flour and sugars and mix well. 

2-      Add your melted butter and beaten eggs to the mixture and blend together well.

3-      Add your chocolate chips and nuts and mix- What a heavenly combination!

4-      Spray baking dish with cooking spray and spread the mixture evenly into your dish.

5-      Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until cooked through (a little gooey is good!)

6-      Let them cool a bit and then cut into squares and serve.  ENJOY!



  • These bars will be quite hot at first, so you'll have to be patient for a few minutes before digging in. My kids could hardly wait, so we ate them warm- the ooey, gooey melted chocolate chips will be heavenly! They will taste just as good when they are completely cool and set, so do whatever floats your boat.

  • Adding some vanilla ice cream or whipped cream can be a great addition or just eat as finger food.

  • Store any leftovers (if you have any!) in an airtight container.
