Special Notes:

When you bake with coconut flour it is very drying and that is why we add in the coconut milk to help soak up the flour and create the cake like texture.  The more coconut flour you use the more dry the lemon pie will be and the more coconut milk the more liquid the lemon pie will be.  We found the right ratio with this recipe so try that out.

For sweeteners, you can use the Swerve, Monk Fruit sweetener here or the lemon stevia drops.  My body does best with stevia as opposed to sugar alcohols like erythritol which are found in the Swerve and Lakanto monk fruit sweetener but many people do just fine with the erythritol.  If you notice issues with gas, bloating, drop in energy after consuming sugar alcohols…than try replacing them with stevia and see how you do.

Dr Jockers Comments

This lemon pie tastes fantastic and is full of anti-inflammatory and fat burning ingredients.  If you want a great keto dessert than I would highly recommend trying this one!

The coconut flour and coconut flakes provide a great fiber to support the microbiome.  The lemon zest adds vitamin C and bioflavonoids that help reduce inflammation and improve blood flow and oxygen delivery to the tissues of the body.

The eggs provide healthy fats and fat soluble nutrients like vitamin A, D, E and K2 as well as protein.  If you are looking for an additional protein boost to add into this than you can add some Bone Broth Power protein which is great for the joints, skin, hair, nails and gut lining.  I have added it to many baked goods and they come out even better in my opinion.

This lemon pie is totally worth the time and effort to make because I know you will LOVE IT like I do!  Let us know your experience with this recipe in the comments section below!!

          1. Hey Sharon, Our social media intern loves taking pictures for our content on recipes. In this case she wanted to layer the cake but you don’t have to do that. Hope that clarifies. Blessings!

  1. This was really good! However, this recipe calls for 3/4 cup of Swerve. When I originally saw this recipe posted on YouTube, it was just 1/4 cup. I only used 1/4 cup in mine, & it was just right. Great Keto dessert!

    1. Hi Lynne, Thank you for letting us know about the discrepancy. You are correct, we have updated the typo in the above recipe to reflect 1/4 cup! I am glad you enjoyed the pie!

  2. How much of the collagen protein would you use and is it in place of something or an additional ingredient?

    1. Hey Rosie, It depends on the recipe. In this recipe I would add 1 serving of the collagen peptides and recommend experimenting the ingredient with your recipes at home!

  3. 10 droppersful of liquid stevia sounds too large an amount when one usually do it by drops- is that a typo? Thanks- it sounds delicious 😋

    1. Hey Patricia, Thank you for bringing this to our attention! We have updated the recipe to reflect the proper amount which is 10 drops of liquid stevia (approx 1-2 squirts of stevia). Sorry for the confusion!

  4. Can you freeze this?
    What alternatives are there in terms of sweetener?
    Not so worried about the keto side of things but definitely need to be as healthy as possible…
    Thank you very much in advance!

    1. I personally don’t support the use of Stevia in any form. My wife and I make use of organic
      rice bran syrup where a liquid is required or suitable. It is a great substitute for honey as well, if you are looking for one.

    1. Barbara–did you receive a reply? The instruction video end shows a picture of the “pie” slice with a filling that looks more like a 2 layer cake, not a pie. Confusing…

  5. We tried this and it did taste good, but why is it called lemon pie when there was no lemon in it? And why is it called custard when there was no custard. Did I leave some things out?

      1. Maybe I should add some lemon extract? If so how much?
        Perhaps I kept it in the oven too long, because the consistency was more like a macaroon than a custard. Please advise. Thanks

  6. Thx for this recipe! (It’s in the oven now 😉.) Two questions:
    1) since you use (as one choice) 10 dropper fulls of lemon stevia, wouldn’t that add both lemon flavor AND moisture to the recipe vs using a powdered sweetener like the monk fruit, which I used? Should I have added some lemon juice for more flavor & moisture?
    2) The last ingredient is listed as “4 ozs” of shredded coconut. Did I rightfully equate that to a half cup? 🤔 I know that in baking, exact measurements are important. 😃

    1. Yes adding in some lemon juice -(1 tbsp) with the powdered monk fruit would make it more accurate to the lemon stevia.

      That 4 oz is equivalent to 1 1/2 cups of the coconut flakes.
