At This Pie Is Nuts we make individual pies and granola that are both decadent and nourishing. Our products are Vegan, Gluten Free and Paleo, made almost entirely out of nuts and seeds! With ingredients you can trust This Pie Is Nuts is a perfect on-the-go snack or a luxurious dessert.

It’s not about the ingredients we leave out.

It’s about the ingredients we put in.


Certified Products:

Purely Pumpkin Pie

A true classic act with a nutty twist. Our Pumpkin Pie is made with fresh pumpkin puree and a unique blend of warming spices that may be better than grandma’s. Don’t worry your secret is safe with us.

Coconut Cream Pie

The nuttiest of them all. At This Pie is Nuts we start with real shredded coconut, creating a robust coconut flavor that will tease your tastebuds like a tropical breeze. Take a bite, because we’re in love with the coco.

Chocolate Mousse Pie

The crowd pleaser. A decadent combination of organic cocoa powder and cacao nibs make the Chocolate Mousse Pie the chocoholic’s choice (and who doesn’t love chocolate?!) . Ready to indulge? We have you covered (in chocolate).

Key Lime Pie

Zesty, spunky and full of life. Our Key Lime Pie balances lip puckering key lime with a touch of coconut to create the perfect decadence. Add a little zest to your midday slump.

Sweet Potato Ginger Pie

A little sweet, a little spicy and a whole lot of delicious. Roasted sweet potatoes and dehydrated ginger root proves that our Sweet Potato Ginger pie can bring the heat.


The ultimate multi-tasker. Our granola combines whole nuts and seeds with a touch of sweetness that makes a winning combination for the perfect anytime, anywhere, grab and go snack. We took out the fillers to give you the most concentrated and nourishing granola out there. So go ahead, pour it, mix it, top it and munch it, but be warned one bag is never enough.

Apple Pie

Just like the Apple Pie your grandma used to make…but not really. We don’t use any traditional ingredients…and we like it that way.

Cherry Pie

Our Cherry Pie is pretty special. Sweetened with a touch of maple syrup. Simple ingredients…but there’s nothing simple about it.

Blueberry Pie

A lightly sweetened crust with a simple fruit filling, our Blueberry Pie is an ode to traditional fruit pie. No wheat, no eggs, no soy. There is something about Blueberry Pie…something good!!

Diana Cornell This Pie is Nuts New York Paleo Vegan pies “We can eat whatever we want. But we should be eating pie. Stop worrying about calories and start looking at ingredients.” - Chef Diana

This Pie Is Nuts! Literally. We make individual pies and granola with nuts and seeds! Our products are Certified Vegan, Certified Paleo and Gluten Free, using ingredients your body will recognize and a taste you won't believe.

Over 20 years ago I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, a degenerative disease that reduces the body's ability to function properly. Without a cure, and with minimal solutions for keeping the symptoms at bay, I decided to take control of my health through diet changes. Realizing the power of whole foods and their relationship to the body, I was inspired to learn more and enrolled in the culinary school at The Natural Gourmet Institute in New York City. There I gained insights on how to create food that not only tasted great but utilized ingredients that support and benefit the body.

Newly inspired and gaining control of my disease, I knew I needed to find a way to empower others through diet. And 'This Pie Is Nuts' was born. We are a company that puts YOU first. Our products are made of the highest quality ingredients that are designed to work FOR your body while tasting amazing. This Pie Is Nuts is dedicated to whole, unprocessed foods that nourish and satisfy with every bite.

We left out all the artificial additives, dairy, eggs and wheat, providing you with the nuttiest pie out there. So savor it, inhale it and find power knowing that you are nourishing your body for whatever may lie ahead. Enjoy our products for breakfast, pre- or post-workout, as a midday pick-me-up or a decadent dessert.

Now sit back and enjoy some pie!!

-Chef Diana











We'd love to hear from you!

Contact us through our form here!

Do your products contain peanuts?

Answer: No, This Pie Is Nuts is a peanut-free facility. We like our nuts from trees.

What is kuzu and agar agar?

Answer: They are natural thickening agents derived from seaweed! We know it sounds weird, but they provide the perfect consistency for our pies without unwanted flavor.

Why are your pies still high in calories?

Answer: Not all calories are created equal. Our pies are high in calories because nuts are packed with energy, healthy fats, vitamins and minerals. We utilize the nuts' natural power to create a pie that is not only delicious but nourishing for your body.


Answer: We hate to think you'd ever want or need a refund...but sometimes these things happen. And we sincerely want you happy when you order from us. If there is ever any problem with your order just shoot us an email and we will figure out what happened and how we can fix it. You can reach us on our contact page. (We also accept love letters)

Tracking your order:

Answer: When you order from us you'll get an email with a tracking number. Especially with the pies, make sure someone is around to get the package so you can get them into the fridge or freezer ASAP. We don't use preservatives, so they need to stay cold!

Expiration Dates:

Answer: We'll have expiration dates on all our products. If you put the pies into the freezer you've got months after the date! Although our granola does not HAVE to go into the fridge, and it'll last months in the heat sealed bag outside the fridge, we need to tell you, it is DELICIOUS cold!!

What certifications do we have?

Answer: TPIN is Vegan Certified and Paleo Certified. Which basically means we get asked a LOT of questions about our ingredients and we take them all very seriously. We are also gluten free. Our commercial kitchen is our own. And we gutted the space and built it. Never has anything containing gluten ever come through our door. And it never will. We are also a Vegan kitchen, a soy free kitchen, a peanut free kitchen AND a Paleo kitchen. If it's not made with nuts...we don't make it.

How many bags of granola can Chef Diana eat in one sitting?

Answer: I usually stop at two, just incase I'm being video taped. But if I am up late at night in my office...who needs a bag? I just get a bowl and get serious.

Where did you come up with the name of the company?

Answer: I (Diana) had MANY ideas for naming the company. But it all seemed so permanent...and not one seemed right. I knew I had to Trademark something ASAP. I was going insane one day driving down the FDR and I screamed (to myself) "THIS PIE IS NUTS!!!!". I smiled and I never looked back.

Will eating granola make you sexier?

Answer: Yes. Definitely.

What if I want to ship Granola to someone active in our military?

Answer: Shoot us an email on our contact page and we will help you make that happen. The USPS has some great Priority Mail® APO/FPO Large Flat Rate Boxes. We've got them and are happy to ship them out for you. They won't come up on our regular shipping options...but we are happy to get the email and work with you that way. No pies shipped this way at this time...we don't have the insulated liners for these USPS boxes

What sweeteners do you use?

Answer: Maple syrup, and we throw some raisins and dates in the crusts of the pies. That's it.

Any wholesale questions please email us here and we'll get back to you asap. Thanks for inquiring!

About Us : 

Established in 2010, The Paleo Foundation was first organized for the purpose of improving the tolerability of the paleo diet, and to help adherents easily identify products that met its basic tenets.  Since then, thousands of products have been certified through the Certified Paleo, Keto Certified, and lab -tested Grain-Free Gluten-Free certification programs.



100% of  Paleo Foundation revenue is generated through certifications.  We do not accept donations, corporate sponsorships, or financially benefit from the sales of any certified products, product giveaways, or partnerships with industry contacts or retailers for the purpose of maintaining the integrity of an impartial certification standard. 

Certified Paleo logo Certified Paleo:

Each certification program has a different set of standards.  Certified Paleo is the Paleo Foundation’s first, most popular, and highest level of certification for Paleo-compliant products.  Certified Paleo Products are products that contain Paleo ingredients, but may have some 21st-century processing or packaging methods allowing for shelf stability.


Grain Free Gluten Free Certified LogoGrain-Free Gluten-Free: 

Grain Free Gluten Free Certified products are gluten-free and do not contain any grains of gliadin competitive residues.  All Grain-Free Gluten-Free products have undergone two rounds of audits, including lab tests, and a final review to become approved for the Grain-free Gluten-free Certified Program. 



Keto Certified LogoKeto Certified: 

The ketogenic diet is a restrictive, demanding diet that can be difficult to maintain, and tolerability of the ketogenic diet is the single most important factor limiting individual acceptance for initiation.  Therefore, improving the tolerability of the ketogenic diet is crucial to preventing diet discontinuation, warranting further investigation into methods for improving palatability, improving the availability and convenience of foods that are compliant with the ketogenic diet, as well as addressing cultural and social acceptance.

The Keto Diet product market may be in a unique position to improve tolerability, especially in social and cultural environments that typically feature carbohydrate-rich “special occasion” types of foods. In 2016, the Paleo Foundation launched the world's first Keto Certified program for products with standards that were developed for adherence to a classical ketogenic diet.
