This is one of the easiest s’mores pie recipes you’ll come across. I’m betting you can knock out prep in 10 minutes if you work fast!

How to Make This S’mores Protein Pie

You’ll only need three dry ingredients—protein powder, cocoa powder, and a granulated sugar substitute. I’ll cover ingredient notes and substitutions below.

Making the Protein Pie Filling

Mix the trio together before adding two superstar ingredients for the rich and creamy factor—canned pumpkin and fat free cream cheese.

For best results, make sure your cream cheese is at room temp or softened before you mix everything together. Nobody likes a lumpy pie filling! 

You can also use a stand mixer or food processor to make sure everything is mixed well. 

Filling the Crust

Before you add the protein pie filling to the crust, you’ll need to spray the crust with cooking spray and put it under the broiler for a minute or two. This gives it a golden brown color and helps prevent any crumbling of the crust when spreading the filling. 

You could also use an egg yolk wash like in my pumpkin pie protein cheesecake

Then it’s time to fill the crust with the s’mores pie filling and top with marshmallows. Throw it back under the broiler for another minute or two, and you’re done! 

Just pop it in the refrigerator for a few hours before serving. 

Modifying Your S’mores Pie

I originally posted this recipe on my Instagram to get an idea of ingredient questions. I’ll cover the most frequently asked questions below.  

Can I use a different protein powder?

The recipe calls for PEScience Select which is a blend of whey and casein. This type of protein powder is a bit thicker than whey-only protein powder. You can get an idea of the expected consistency in the photo below.

If you use a different protein powder, you may need to add a bit more to match this thicker consistency. The pie will thicken as it chills in the refrigerator so you have a little wiggle room here.

PEScience has a cool option to order a small 5-serving packet. So if you wanted to try this recipe and something like my no bake s’mores protein bites, you could do it without fully committing. Then when you try and love it, you can use my affiliate code mason to save 15% off on PEScience products.

Oh, and if you use a chocolate protein powder, keep the cocoa powder amount the same. 

Is there a substitute for canned pumpkin?

If you’re not a fan of pumpkin, I’ll start out by saying you’ll never know it’s there. Seriously, not even a hint of pumpkin. 

That said, you could try using something like avocado or other fruit/veggie purées. Typically, I’ll suggest unsweetened apple sauce as a substitute in protein powder recipes. But in this case, the apple sauce won’t have time to evaporate during baking. 

Will any granulated sugar substitute work?

Probably so. Like I mentioned in my Greek yogurt biscuits recipe, Swerve measures 1:1 for sugar while some other substitutes can be more concentrated. 

Check the weight on your sweetener and if 1/2 cup doesn’t weigh 96 grams, you may notice slight differences in consistency, similar to the protein powder. 

Is there a dairy free cream cheese substitute? 

I’ve seen readers use plenty of vegan cream cheese products in recipes. I posted a thread in my Facebook group to get specific product recommendations and approved recipes. 

Daiya products, Trader Joe’s dairy free cream cheese, and Tofutti seem to be the most common suggestions. 

Final S’mores Protein Pie Recipe Notes

Since this s’mores protein pie is only broiled for a few minutes, it’s difficult to mess up. You can probably get away with all kinds of substitutions. As long as the consistency is on the thicker side before chilling, you should be straight like 12:30.

So I’ve loved every single recipe I’ve made by you. I’m not sure if it’s bc I used regular Dutch cocoa but I can totally taste the pumpkin. It tastes like chocolate pumpkin pie to me. My family said the same thing. :(

Mine was a.so very pumpkiny. Is there a better brand of cocoa to use?

Made it exactly as the recipe said and thought the pumpkin was a bit overpowering and there wasn’t enough of a chocolate taste to it and I’m a pumpkin lover so if you aren’t I would recommend going with another substation. I’ve made something similar before with the ready made Keebler mini crusts, sugar free fat free chocolate fudge pudding (prepared as instructed on the package) and then put mini marshmallows on top and thrown it in the broiler for 30 seconds and that’s a similar option but obviously not protein packed like this is so it’s a good alternative!

YALL this is so good!! And that's coming from someone who has made a non-macro friendly pie very similar to this for years. I used Dymatize vanilla protein in this because that's what I had when I made it and loved it! This is the perfect recipe to make if you need something quick or you have a sweet tooth craving come up :)

I cannot get enough of this pie. I highly recommend purchasing the PE Science Vanilla protein powder. I've tried other protein powders and that one by far tastes the best. If you can wait 24 hours before devouring, I would try because it definitely tastes less protein-y the second day! SO YUM.
