Impossible Lemon Coconut Pie

Nothing is more fun for me on a rainy day than baking with the kiddies to help pass the time and add some fun learning to our day! Baking is a great way to incorporate math and science lessons as well as working on those occasionally elusive toddler social skills naturally into your day! 

I love the impossible pies because they are typically nice and easy all t he stuff goes into one bowl and just mix and pour recipe plus this one is one that left the house smelling divine for a Friday .... lemony deliciousness!

Impossible Lemon Coconut Pie
Serves 8

What You Need
  • 2 cups of milk ~ we choose Almond Milk
  • 1 cup of unsweetened flaked coconut
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup of coconut flour
  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted or a non-dairy alternative like Earth Balance
  • 1 cup of sugar or 1/2 cup of Truvia or other sweetener to taste
  • Juice and zest of 1/2 lemon
What You Do
  • Mix all ingredients in a bowl using a spoon.
  • Pour into a large 10"-12" greased pie plate or we prefer to do 'small shareable pies' 
  • Bake 350 F for 45 minutes ~ when cooking with children remember to SET THE TIMER cause its easy to get distracted! 
  • When done, the pie may be slightly wobbly in the center but it should firm up Remove from the oven and allow to cool, then refrigerate overnight if possible.
  • Serve on its own or with some homemade whip cream or ice-cream!

Nutritional Breakdown 

While made with healthy ingredients and a nice macro balance of carbs, fiber, protein and fats please remember that this is totally a TREAT SWAP to be enjoyed on occasion for those who are on a weight loss journey! 

Serving is based on 1/8 of the recipe and using 'Truvia' sweetener ~ the use of regular sugar or other sweeteners will increase the calories you can 'check' your calorie count using the Calorie Count app

We totally love this cause its a nice fresh light treat! 

Have an amazing day!
