High Protein Chocolate Pie Recipe and Bonus Microwaveable Pie Recipe
Don’t let pie fool you into thinking these take a ton of skill or time. In reality, this protein chocolate pie is super easy to make. The oven baked version takes 10-15 minutes and the microwave version will be down the hatch in that time.
And the ingredients? You’ll only need three things.
If you haven’t tried the cherry pie recipe yet, consider throwing it in the mix as it’s the tastiest of the mini protein pies, in my opinion.
Below you’ll see the mini pie crusts I used. You can find a recipe below to make your own and even a microwaveable version. If you’d like to use a full-size, reduced fat graham cracker crust, the calories/macros should turn out to be very close.
You can find these on Amazon here.
A quick note I’d give on the fat-free evaporated milk is to be sure to avoid any fat-free version that still has 100+ calories per serving. Several replace the fat with sugar and the calories remain the same. I use Nestle Carnation which has 25 calories per serving (30mL).
If you don’t have any fat-free sugar-free pudding mix on hand, you could use unsweetened cocoa powder (gram for gram) and a 1/2 Tbsp of stevia instead. Or worst case, you could just go with protein and evaporated milk. If you go this route, you’ll likely want to add a bit more protein to keep the mixture thick.
Protein Chocolate Pie
- 1 serving (30mL) Fat-Free Evaporated Milk
- 1 scoop Protein Powder chocolate
- 1 serving (10g) Fat-Free Sugar-Free Pudding Mix chocolate
- 1 mini Keebler Ready Graham Cracker Crust or make your own
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Mix all ingredients in a bowl and add to crust.
Bake pie crust(s) and filling on top of a baking sheet for 10 minutes. If you only prepare one pie at a time, you'll want to reduce the cook time. For this pie, you want the center to be almost cooked through but slightly gooey.

If you’d like to make your own crust and shorten the cook time with a microwave, check out the recipe below. You’ll use the same process and cook time for the crust – just use the filling recipe from above.
High Protein Cherry Pie (Microwave)
- 1/2 serving (13g) Graham Cracker Crumbles
- 1 Tbsp Unsweetened Apple Sauce
- 2 servings (170g) Sugar-Free Cherry Pie Filling
- 1 scoop Protein Powder vanilla
Spray a small bowl or mug with nonstick cooking spray.
Mix graham cracker crumbles and apple sauce together in the bottom of the bowl or mug. Using your fingers or the backside of a spoon, flatten the mixture into a crust.
In a separate bowl, mix cherry pie filling and protein.
Add pie mixture to mug on top of the crust.
Microwave in 30-second intervals (to avoid overflow) for 90-120 seconds or until pie center looks firm.
