Ingredients

  • 1⁄2 cup shredded sweetened coconut, divided
  • 3⁄4 cups coconut flour
  • 1⁄4 cup coconut sugar
  • 5 Tbsp. coconut ghee, chilled
  • 3 large egg yolks
  • 1 can coconut cream
  • 2 Tbsp. tapioca starch
  • 4 tsp. grated key lime zest
  • 1 cup lime juice

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • In a mixing bowl, mix coconut flour, coconut sugar, and half of the coconut. Using a pastry cutter, cut the ghee into the coconut flour mixture until it is crumbly. Pat into the bottom of a 9-by-13-inch baking pan; bake 20 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool slightly.
  • In a medium saucepan over medium heat, beat together egg yolks, coconut cream, tapioca starch, 4 teaspoons of lime zest, and lime juice. Bring to a boil; cook about 1 minute, until thickened. Remove from heat.
  • Pour filling into cooled crust; sprinkle with remaining coconut. Bake another 10 minutes; remove from oven. Chill until ready to serve.
