Crustless Coconut Pie

Today, January 23rd, is National Pie Day. You know, the thing I love most about food holidays is that they are so easy to celebrate. There is a day celebrating nearly every food that you can think of. But pie day definitely tops my list; it’s right up there with National Chocolate Day!

In addition to it being pie day today, did you know that pie is predicted to be the biggest food trend of the year? It’s supposed to push cupcakes right out of the spotlight. That’s alright by me because I opted for a slice of pie over a cupcake any day. How about you – would you rather a cupcake or a slice of pie?

This Crustless Coconut Pie is an easy option to get your pie fix without a lot of fuss. The pie forms a crispy crust that’s very similar to a pastry crust. The middle layer is like a sweet custard and the top is just full of crispy coconut. If you’re a fan of coconut, this is sure to be a hit with you! (Although I will warn you, if you’ve never eaten pie like this, the custard layer may be a little off-putting that first bite or two since the texture is not what you’re expecting. But the flavor is fantastic.)

Crustless Coconut Pie

  • 3/4 c. sugar
  • 1/4 c. butter, melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 c. milk
  • 1/4 c. flour
  • 1/4 t. baking powder
  • 1/4 t. salt
  • 1 1/2 c. shredded coconut

1. In a large mixing bowl, beat sugar and melted butter together until combined. In a small bowl, whisk together eggs and milk. Pour into the mixing bowl and beat until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Stir in flour, baking powder, salt and coconut until combined. Pour into a greased and floured 9 inch pie plate.

2. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-55 minutes, until set. (If the coconut is browning too quickly, cover with foil while finishing baking.) Cool on the stovetop before transferring to the refrigerator to finish cooling completely. Store in the refrigerator.

  1. Was looking for something quick and easy to bake for tonight, this is it! And my hubby is a coconut lover, so you’ve just made his day!

  2. My mom makes this all the time, but her recipe calls for you to just throw everything in the blender and blend it up. Makes it very easy and just one thing to wash (the blender). It is fun, easy recipe and makes a yummy breakfast too!

  3. So, I have to confess…I absolutely love coconut. And pies. I’ve never tried a coconut pie before, and since it combines some of my favorites, I might just try it. So far, my favorite pies are the apple pie and the sweet cheese pie with some raisins. But I will love to try this one out and I’m sure I’ll love it. Thanks.

  4. I would take pie over cupcakes. I love pie! My favorites are Banana Cream Pie and Coconut Cream Pie. Will be trying out this recipe. Thanksfor posting. I love coconut so I am positive that I will love this pie.

    1. This recipe for Crustless Coconut pie looks awesome….is there a “flour” that could be used to make it more paleo friendly and still give the same result?
