Wait – Did I mention this no bake chocolate pie recipe is also gluten-free? I didn’t? Well it can be as long as you use gluten-free chocolate sandwich cookies (sadly Oreos are not gluten free). For some reason I had always thought gluten free meant, taste free, but luckily recipes have come a long way. I also thought it meant calorie free, but now I know better. Since I have so many friends who are gluten-free I came up with this recipe that makes everyone happy.
