Mini Key Lime Pie | Gluten-Free & Dairy-Free | Allergy Friendly

My husband has a short list of sweet treats that he likes. No big fancy cakes, no decadent, over the top desserts for my guy. Just simple, tried and true recipes are his usual requests.

Those requests are actually few and far between too. Give the man a handful of peanut chocolate candies and he's a happy guy.

This, of course, helps me keep my sweet tooth at bay. Not having to stock the pantry during the week with sweets comes in quite handy. When your only options are fruits, veggies, or popcorn for a late evening snack, sticking with a healthy lifestyle is pretty doable.


When His Sweet Tooth Does Come Calling


Now don't get me wrong. We do like our treats now and then. Me, more than him for sure, but his sweet tooth does make its appearance every so often.

When it does, I can usually pin point exactly what he wants. In the summer time it's usually something cold and tart. A fresh frozen fruit bar or a homemade Key Lime Pie are ones he really enjoys.

Revamping An Old Favorite


Over the past few years though we have hit a snag when it came to me making Key Lime Pies. Dairy and gluten had become allergens in our family, and were unfortunately, main ingredients in our favorite recipe.

This year however, I was bound and determined to put together something that would work.

With my old recipe in hand and a few vegan recipes I found online, I eventually put together a list of ingredients that I was cautiously comfortable experimenting with.

I crushed, I mixed, I measured, and I blended. And as I poured the ingredients into their little muffin cups, I said a little prayer.

The possibilities of messing this up were there. Yet, as I closed my eyes and slid my finger across the leftovers in the container, a BIG smile crept across my face.

Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free, and Delicious


If you are any kind of foodie like myself, you know what it's like to let out a HUGE sigh of relief when a revamped recipe actually works.

To say that I let out a HUGE sigh of relief when I tasted these Mini Key Lime Pies for the first time is an understatement. There was actual dancing in the kitchen I think. A happy, YES IT WORKED, kind of celebration was had.

Not only did it work, but it tasted AMAZING! My husband said it actually tasted better then ones I had made in the past.

YES!

A revamped dairy and gluten packed recipe was now allergy friendly for the whole family!

  1. WHAT A UNIQUE recipe! If you can believe it, I have never actually had key lime pie before - I have had things flavored like it, but never the real deal. I am going to have to come up with a recipe that works for me, but it will DEFINITELY include COCONUT milk!

  3. WOW is all I can say. These look so good. You are the second blog I've read today that used butter flavored coconut oil. I have never even heard of it before.
