A deep dish pie with all the flavors of a favorite Girl Scout Cookie! A coconut cookie crust with layers of chocolate and coconut, topped with homemade caramel and more chocolate! This pie is low carb, sugar free, and a THM-S fuel.
About a week ago, I was scrolling through Facebook, when a recipe video from Averie Cooks caught my attention (original recipe here). I knew immediately that I wanted to recreate a THM-friendly, low carb version for my blog. Turns out, my friend Taryn, from Joy Filled Eats had the same idea! She also just published a healthy dairy free version of this pie - so check out her recipe, too!
I mean, really, who doesn't like caramel, chocolate, and coconut? There are a few people, I suppose, but Samoas are one of my favorite cookies - outweighed only by Thin Mints! I already had a coconut cookie to use as the crust, and my 2 Ingredient Sweetened Condensed Milk was perfect for the filling. I made a few other tweaks, and wow! Deliciousness in a pie pan!
While we are on the topic of Girl Scout Flavors, be sure to check out these healthy sugar-free recipes as well! Joy Filled Eats has Tagalong Cupcakes, Tagalong Cookies, and Samoas Cookie Bars! Gwen's Nest has a Thin Mint Shake, and All Day I Dream About Food has Thin Mint Cookies, Samoa Donuts, and a gorgeous Samoa Layer Cake!
A word about this recipe. I was so anxious to try it last night, that I cut it while it was still warm. Bad idea. The condensed milk and caramel were still so gooey, it just fell apart. My son and I ate one piece (gooey perfection), then the remainder went into the fridge to chill overnight. This morning when I sliced it for photos, it sliced so much nicer, and was much easier to eat. You could even pick it up and eat it out of your hand, (if that is your thing). Seriously, it was so good!
There are a few steps to this recipe, but don't let that intimidate you. It is worth it - I promise! While you are at it, you could go ahead and make up a double version of the coconut sweetened condensed milk. I have a recipe for Salted Samoas Coffee Creamer coming soon (which will use the condensed milk)!

For the Crust:
- 1/2 Cup Butter Softened
- 1/2 Cup Xylitol or the equivalent of your favorite on-plan sweetner
- 3 Eggs
- 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
- 3/4 Cup Coconut Flour
For the Caramel:
- 4 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter
- 6 Tablespoons Xylitol or 5 Tablespoons Gentle Sweet
- 1/2 Teaspoon Caramel Extract
- 1/4 Teaspoon Mineral Salt
- 1 Tablespoon Heavy Whipping Cream
For the Pie Filling:
- 1 Can Coconut Milk
- 1/4 Cup Heavy Cream
- 1 Tablespoon Butter
- 1/3 Cup Gentle Sweet or your favorite powdered sweetener
- 2 Cups Unsweetened Coconut Flakes I used the large flakes, but I think the shredded style would work as well.
- 1 1/2 Cups Lily's Stevia-Sweetened Dark Chocolate Chips
- 1 Teaspoon Coconut Oil
For the Crust:
- Preheat oven to 350.
- Beat softened butter, xylitol, and eggs until well mixed.
- Add vanilla and coconut flour and stir well.
- Press into bottom and up sides of a greased deep dish pie pan.
- Bake for 10 minutes. (It will not be finished, but will bake for 20 more minutes later on.)
For the Pie Filling
- In a large, wide skillet, combine 1 can coconut milk and 1/4 cup heavy cream.
- Add 1 Tablespoon butter and 1/3 cup Gentle Sweet.
- Stir well and bring to a boil.
- Allow to simmer until mixture become gooey and sticky. (It should reduce by almost half.)
- Remove from heat and let cool.
For the Caramel
- In a saucepan, melt butter and xylitol (or Gentle Sweet) over medium high heat.
- When sweetener has completely melted, continue to simmer for 1-2 minutes, stirring continuously to prevent scorching.
- Add caramel flavoring, mineral salt and heavy whipping cream.
- Continue to simmer for 1-2 more minutes, still stirring continuously.
- Remove from heat.
- The sauce should start to thicken a bit, and it will thicken more as it cools.
Assembling the Pie
- As soon as the crust is removed from the oven, sprinkle 1 cup of the Lily's Chocolate Chips evenly across the bottom of the pie.
- Spread 2 Cups of Unsweetened Coconut on top of the chocolate chips.
- Pour Condensed Milk Mixture (coconut milk mixture) over the top.
- Drizzle caramel sauce over the top.
- Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until coconut begins to turn golden brown. (You may need to broil it for 1-2 minutes to brown the coconut.)
- Remove from oven and let cool.
- Melt remaining 1/2 cup Chocolate chips with 1 teaspoon coconut oil.
- Mix well, and drizzle over the top of the cooled pie.
- Place in refrigerator and chill for at least 4-6 hours before serving. (Overnight is best)

Whoa! Okay, that is wild. Did you know that you and Taryn BOTH posted a samoa pie recipe today? I guess we all feel the need to THM-ify our favourite girl scout cookies.
Anyway, thanks for the link love!
Probably because Samoa is such a lovely flavor!!! Your donuts look fantastic!
Keri, My Table if Three
This looks amazing. I really need to make it soon!!
Samoas and thin mints are my favorites too!!! I am proud to say I haven't eaten a single girl scout cookie this season! I am definitely going to try this. Can't wait for your creamer recipe! Thank you for sharing your recipes!
I LOVE me some Girl Scout Cookies!! This recipe looks DIVINE!! Can't wait to try it!! 🙂
karrie @ Tasty Ever After
This looks so delish! Love samoas cookies but I bet this pie tastes so much better. YUM!!
I'll be honest, some of the ingredients are a little intimidating to me, but the pictures just look SO GOOD! Definitely craving coconut now.
These are cookies that I could learn to enjoy. Look at all of that chocolate and caramel.
Ashley @ Big Flavors from a Tiny Kitchen
I can never pick a favorite between samoas and thin mints. This pie looks awesome!
Just when I thought I could avoid chocolate today haha. I need to make this!
These look wonderful. O will be trying them soon!
I made this pie, the filling seemed to come out thin/undercooked? Is this normal before the chilling phase? Will it set up overnight in the fridge?
It is very soft right out of the oven. Yes, it should firm up in the fridge overnight.
Can sugar free caramel flavoring or caramel stevia be used instead of caramel extract?
Yes, I would think so. If you use caramel stevia, you may want to use less of the other sweeteners.
Hey Sarah! These look amazing! I’m definitely going to try them. Is there nutrition facts on The Samoa pie?
I hope you enjoy! No, I am sorry, but this recipe was published before I started using nutrition facts. 🙁
I wish you had nutritional facts with your recipes…
Made this recipe last night. Shared it with friends today. We all loved it! Thank you for creating and sharing it.
My 82-year-old father was recently diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, so I've been looking for recipes to use at Thanksgiving and Christmas so he won't feel deprived. He LOVES Samoas, so this one will definitely be made at least once!
Wonderful!! Simmered filling at least 15 minutes and was pretty set by end of baking. All the family liked this. Very rich. Time intensive but sure to please. Cookie type crust, coconut filling and caramel could all be used for something else.
