  • Yield: 16 1x
  • Diet: Gluten Free

Ingredients

Scale

Crust

  • 3 cups almond flour
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup coconut oil (at room temp)
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp salt

 

Filling

  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tsp grated lemon peel
  • ½ c maple syrup
  • ½ cup lemon juice
  • 6 tbsp coconut flour

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a 8×8 pan with parchment paper (helps to spray the pan with oil so the paper sticks!).  In a large bowl combine almond flour, egg, coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla and ½ tsp salt. Once evenly combined, pour into the prepared pan and press it down evenly.  Use moist hands so it doesn’t stick to them when pressing down.
  • Bake the crust for 15-20 minutes, the crust will look under baked, that is okay it will continue to bake when it goes back in the oven
  • Then, with an electric mixer, beat all four eggs until they begin to thicken. Then at a low mix speed, add the grated lemon, lemon juice and maple syrup. Then add the coconut flour and continue to mix. Pour the mixture onto the crust and bake at 350 degrees for 20 -25 minutes or until it looks set.
  • Optional to add some powdered sugar on top once cooled!
