Ingredients

Crust

Filling

  • 3 eggs + 1 egg yolk
  • 3/4 cup fresh squeezed lime juice 
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp lime zest
  • 1 tbsp coconut flour, sifted

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F and line an 8×8 baking dish with parchment paper or nonstick spray.
  2. In a bowl, mix together all of your crust ingredients until well combined.
  3. Press into the bottom of the 8×8 baking dish and bake for 15 minutes.
  4. While crust is baking, whisk together all filling ingredients, adding sifted coconut flour last. Whisk until all clumps are gone.
