Paleo / Gluten-Free Key Lime Pie

Submitted by: TRUELIFE

Introduction

Grain and sugar free pie with plenty of protein! Grain and sugar free pie with plenty of protein!
Number of Servings: 9

Ingredients

    Crust:
    1.5 cups whole almonds
    4 pitted dates
    1 Tablespoon Coconut Oil

    -Put it all in a food processor and stop just short of nut-butter
    -Dump it into a standard pie pan (smear with coconut oil first) and, with your fingers, just mush it flat. Don't bother going all the way up the sides with it - though a visible crust looks good, you have to worry about it burning in the oven. - --Form the crust so it goes about half way up the sides. Pre-bake at 350 for 6-8 minutes - should be just a tad golden.

    Filling:
    4 teaspoons lime zest (you know... get the grater out)
    1/2 Cup lime juice (fresh of course)
    3 Tablespoons agave syrup (can use honey)
    2 Tablespoons coconut flour
    3 eggs
    1 Cup Coconut Milk (Thai Kitchen brand recommended)

Directions

Crust:

-Put it all in a food processor and stop just short of nut-butter
-Dump it into a standard pie pan (smear with coconut oil first) and, with your fingers, just mush it flat. Don't bother going all the way up the sides with it - though a visible crust looks good, you have to worry about it burning in the oven. - --Form the crust so it goes about half way up the sides. Pre-bake at 350 for 6-8 minutes - should be just a tad golden

Filling:

Get a whisk and mix it up real good. When pie shell is done, dump filling into shell and put back in oven for another 25-30 minutes (filling should appear to be set up). Hopefully the crust is actually covered. If not, don't let it burn - cover with foil near the end if you have to.
