Ingredients

Almond crust

Key lime filling


Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the almond flour, coconut oil, brown rice syrup and pinch of salt until if forms a soft dough. You should be able to press the dough together between your fingers. (If it is too crumbly, add a bit more oil & brown rice syrup)
  3. Spoon 1/4 of the mixture evenly between 4 mini tart pans (this kind), and press down into the pan with your fingers.
  4. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until lightly browned.
  5. While the tarts cool, start preparing the filling.
  6. Add cornstarch to the cup of lime juice and mix until dissolved.
  7. Next scoop out the cream from the top of the can of the coconut milk and add it to a small pan on medium-high heat along with the lime juice mixture, lime zest, coconut oil and maple syrup.
  8. Stir the mixture until it begins to bubble. The mixture should thicken.
  9. Reduce the heat to medium and keep stirring for 2-3 minutes. Then Remove from heat and set aside, allowing the mixture to cool down to room temperature. (You can also pop it in the fridge to speed up this process.)
  10. Separate the tarts from the tart pans. (I like to set the tarts on a small cup, and gently pull down the sides of the pan. It will slide right off!)
  11. Pour some of the key lime mixtures into each tart.
  12. Let set in the fridge for at least 1 hour to firm up.
  13. (Optional) Decorate with lime slices and whipped coconut cream.
