Coconut peach/plum pie

Deserts are not really allowed on the 30 days of  the Whole 30 program. The reason for that is that we all have a very emotional and psychological bond to sugar and sweet which needs to be broken in order to restore our healthy eating habits. So during this time you really do break free. One of the most surprising benefits for me was on my teeth. When you give them a break from sugar they give you a break from cavities and the like. So if you stay on a paleo based lifestyle afterwords there are a lot of paleo desserts out there. And there is no reason you shouldn't indulge from while to while but you have to keep in mind that even if there are no bad ingredients in these desserts they too can again enslave you to the sweet demon.

This is a pie I made in two variations and both were delicious. First time I made it was with plums and second with peaches (had them in the fridge).

You can eat it warm or cold. It will keep for days in the fridge too.


  • 1/2 kg of plums or peaches
  • 1cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 cup coconut flakes
  • 1 package of baking powder (1 tsp)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil

  • Preheat oven to 180 C.
  • In a pie plate stack plums/peaches in a single layer.
  • Sift together the coconut flour, salt, baking powder, and spices.
  • Beat the eggs and whisk into the flour mixture until completely combined. Add vanilla, the honey, and the melted coconut oil until smooth.
  • Pour batter evenly over plums/peaches
  • Bake for 40 minutes (use the toothpick test).
