Submitted by: DANDELIONWINE_O

Introduction

This recipe is super low in carbs, and Gluten Free. It is made out of Ground Almond meal-no grains at all.
It is super moist and dense-you will love it.
It can be made with regular Lemons too if you cannot find the Meyer Lemon.

It tastes better the next day when all the ingredients come together.

Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir until smooth
Pour mixture into either a 9" oiled deep dish pie pan, or springfoam pan.
Bake 50-55 minutes until center is no longer jiggly in center, and top and edges are golden brown.
