  • 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/3 cup almond flour

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Make flax “egg”: In a small bowl, mix ground flaxseed with water. Let sit 5-10 minutes until it becomes gelatinous.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, mix all the ingredients for the crust.
  4. Press down into an even layer in a tart pan.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool completely before removing from the pan. You can put it in the fridge to speed up this step!
