Ingredient List:

  1. Gluten Free Graham Crackers – There are several brands, and will work well. I do recommend not using cinnamon flavored.
  2. Nut Flour – This can be omitted, and use more graham crackers if you are nut-free. I used hazelnut flour, but almond flour is also great.
  3. Butter – Use unsalted butter.
  4. Cream Cheese – I used full-fat cream cheese. This helps give the pie its creamy texture. I have not tested using the low-fat or vegan cream cheese brands. Be sure your cream cheese is at room temperature. Be sure to check that your cream cheese is gluten free.
  5. Sweetened Condensed Milk – You can use either regular or coconut condensed milk in this gluten free key lime pie recipe. (Note: coconut condensed milk is made with coconut milk and has a slightly different flavor.)
  6. Limes – Use critical limes if you can find them or ordinary limes. Sometimes it is hard to find fresh key limes. Bottled lime or key lime juice is also okay, but you will get more flavor when you can use key lime zest, too.

You can also use this Almond Flour and Shredded Coconut No-Bake Pie Crust as a base for this key lime pie.

Recipe Step By Step Ingredients:

A zipper bag with crushed gluten free graham crackers.

Step 1: The first step is to crush your graham crackers. For best results, you can do this in two different ways.

First, you can crush them in a food processor. Place the graham crackers into the food processor and grind them until they are finely chopped. Second, place the graham crackers in a zipper bag and crush them into crumbs with a rolling pin.

You can also buy gluten free graham cracker crumbs.

Step 2: Pour the graham cracker crumbs into a large mixing bowl. Melt your butter in a microwave-safe dish. Pour the melted butter into the crumbs and mix well to coat the crumbs in the butter.

Step 3: Pour the crumb mixture into a greased pie pan. You can use a regular pie pan or a disposable one. Note: I used spray coconut oil in my pan.

Step 4: Press the crumbs down into the pie pan with a large spoon or a flat bottom glass. Be sure you can’t see the bottom of the pan anywhere.

Step 5: To make the key lime filling, place the softened cream cheese and all of the pie filling ingredients into the bowl of a standing mixer. Use the whisk attachment to whip the ingredients together until they are creamy.

Step 6: Pour the pie filling into the gluten free graham cracker crust. Use a spoon to spread the filling to ensure it is evenly disbursed.

Step 7: Cover the top of the pie loosely with aluminum foil or plastic wrap and place the pie into the refrigerator for 3 hours to chill. You can also freeze the pie if you prefer a frozen dessert. Garnish with whipped cream or lime slices.
