Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and line an 8x8 pan with parchment paper, leaving a slight overhang. Set aside.

  2. In a large bowl, combine the coconut oil, sugar-free maple syrup and vanilla until smooth. Sift in the almond flour and coconut flour and mix until dough forms and comes together.

  5. Pour over the partly-baked crust and tap gently on the counter to remove any air bubbles. Bake for 50-60 minutes, or until filling is set and no longer jiggly.

  6. Remove and allow to cool completely at room temperature before covering with plastic wrap and transferring to the fridge for 6-8 hours, or overnight if desired.
