Coconut Cream Pie – Gluten, Sugar & Dairy Free

Coconut Cream Pie – Gluten Free, Sugar Free & Dairy Free

Coconut Cream Pie is one of those desserts that seems perfect for the spring and summer months!  However, for a coconut lover like me, it is certainly good any time of the year! I adapted this recipe from one posted on Today’s Mama to make it more allergy friendly.   It does have almond flour in the crust but you could easily make a crust with all coconut flour.

Coconut Cream Pie - Gluten, Sugar & Dairy Free


Put all the dry ingredients for the crust in a food processor then pulse to mix.  Next, add all the wet ingredients and run processor until well combined.

Press all the ingredients into the bottom and up the sides of a pie pan and bake.

While the crust is baking, mix coconut with stevia then toast it for your topping.

Make your custard.

Let everything cool and add custard to crust then sprinkle with toasted coconut! Finally, enjoy!

  1. Roseann – coconut used to not be a favorite of mine, but I am finding that my tastes are changing as I get older. This looks so delicious and at first I thought, oh man this is going to take forever to make, but then when I read your recipe card and it said 30 minutes… I thought, hey thats doable and my husband loves coconut anything, plus its a healthy version – so win – win 🙂

    Thank you for linking up this delicious recipe with #TuneInThursday today!

  2. This is a dessert we could actually eat without guilt. I wonder if I could add bananas since our true favorite is banana cream pie. I just may try this. Thanks for sharing your recipe so attractively.

  3. Hi Roseann, this is my sort of recipe. If I could work around the cornstarch, this would be a good low carb recipe. I will have to give that some thought. It looks so yummy and I love a good dessert.
