To make the crust: 

  1. Preheat oven to 350. Grease a pie dish with oil. Set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, mix flax, water and set aside to thicken. Stir in oil.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together almond flour, salt, and monk fruit.
  4. Pour wet mixture over dry and mix well with a fork until a dough forms. Add a small splash of water if it's too crumbly.
  5. Press dough evenly into pie dish. Prick all over with a fork to prevent bubbling.
  6. Par-bake for 10 minutes. Remove and allow to cool for 5 minutes before filling.

To make the filling:

  1. Add all ingredients to a mixing bowl and whip with a hand mixer until silky smooth. Taste and adjust with more spice or monk fruit.
  2. Spread filling over crust.
  3. Wrap crust in foil.
  4. Bake in the center rack for 70-85 minutes, until it's lightly set, but still little jiggly in the center.
  5. Allow to cool completely on a wire rack at room temp, then refrigerate for 6 hours (or overnight) before serving.
  6. Garnish with a dollop of coconut whipped cream. (See recipe below)

To store: Refrigerate for up to 4-5 days (the crust will soften slightly after a couple of days). Best served chilled the next day after baking.

Coconut Whipped Cream: Use a can of coconut milk that has been refrigerated 24-48 hours. Carefully scoop out only the solid cream into a mixing bowl. Add 6 drops of vanilla flavored liquid monkfruit or 10 drops of vanilla stevia or 1-2 Tbsp of your favorite powdered sweetener (add 2 tsp vanilla, optional). Whip with a hand mixer for about 20 seconds until fluffy.
