Weight Watchers Recipe of the Day: Slow Cooker Impossible Chocolate Brownie Pie
I'm a big fan of Bisquick Impossible Pies.
Have you ever tried them?
Originally introduced in 1978 and renamed "Impossibly Easy" pies in 1997, they're quick, easy and delicious.
All you do is mix a few ingredients together, pour or layer them in a pie plate (affiliate link) and bake.
During baking, some of the Bisquick baking mix sinks to the bottom, creating a crust-like layer.
They're like a crustless quiche and come in both sweet and savory varieties.
I'd never thought of baking one in the slow cooker until the idea for this lightened up impossible chocolate brownie pie popped into my head.
Since beginning my year of Weight Watchers crock pot cooking, I've made all kinds of unexpected dishes in the slow cooker including cakes, quiches, pizza, omelets and frittatas.
So, why not Bisquick Impossible pies?
I'm happy to report that my little experiment was a huge success.
The Skinny on Impossible Chocolate Brownie Pie
My Impossible chocolate brownie pie baked up moist and delicious, with rich chocolate flavor, and just half the calories of the original.
I never mentioned it was "lightened up" and nobody ever guessed 🙂
To decrease the fat, calories and WW points in my impossible chocolate brownie pie I:
- Substituted applesauce for ½ of the butter.
- Substituted cocoa powder for baking chocolate.
- Reduced the eggs from 4 to 2.
- Used HeartSmart Bisquick instead of original.
- Reduced the chop walnuts from ¾ cup to 2 tablespoons and sprinkled them on top instead of stirring them into the batter so they were more noticeable.
- Baked it in the slow cooker instead of the oven to help it stay moist.
How Many Calories and WW Points in this Impossible Brownie Pie?

- 1 teaspoon vanilla

- In a blender, combine the eggs, butter, applesauce, sugars, Bisquick mix, vanilla and cocoa powder. Cover and blend on high until smooth, about 1 to 2 minutes. Scrape down sides of blender occasionally if necessary. (If you prefer, beat all the ingredients with a mixer until smooth.)
- Pour batter into the slow cooker. Sprinkle with chopped nuts.
- Place 3 to 4 layers of paper towels over the cooker and Cover. (This will prevent condensation the accumulates in the lid from dripping back into your impossible chocolate brownie pie.)

- Turn off the slow cooker and remove the cover.
- Serve warm or cool.

Can this recipe be adapted to an oven? My slow cooker is larger than this and this recipe sounds amazing! Also, do you know the calorie count? Thanks so much.
Hi Beth B,
I think it will be fine baked in the oven, though maybe not quite as moist. I would bake in a greased pie plate at 350 degrees for about 20 to 25 minutes. Let us know how it turns out!!
I just did this in the oven and it's very good. May reduce the sugars a bit next time. Be sure to spray the pie dish well on the bottom. 350 degrees 30 minutes in my oven.
I love your website, but the advertisement at the top includes a very gross picture of some sort of skin infection that really clashes with the beautiful food photos. Thought I'd let you know...
Thanks for taking the time to comment! We'll look into seeing if we can block the unsightly advertisement.
Your crock-pot dessert looks so awesome! I love slow cooker recipes. Thank you for sharing.
