Special Diet Notes & Options: Pineapple Coconut Pie

By ingredients, this recipe is dairy-free / non-dairy, egg-free, peanut-free, and soy-free. Just be sure to use a dairy-free, soy-free margarine (Earth Balance offers a couple).

For gluten-free and dairy-free pineapple coconut pie, use gluten-free graham crackers – I recommend Kinnikinnick.
