INSTRUCTIONS
CRUST
Preheat oven to 350

In a large bowl, combine ingredients for the crust and mix until a wet, but firm consistency, like shortbread is formed.

Line an 8×8 ceramic pan with parchment paper.

Press dough into lined pan, making sure to press it out evenly and into the corners.
Bake for 20 minutes or until fragrant and set. Let cool.

FILLING
While crust is baking, combine ingredients for filling and beat until a smooth, liquid batter is formed. It will be runny, but don’t worry, this is correct!

Pour mixture on top of the cooled crust and bake for 30 minutes. Cool completely then chill.
Top with a shake of powdered sugar, cut and serve!

NOTES
I used a ceramic baking dish lined with parchment for this recipe. I’ve found that glass pans tend to burn more easily.

The coconut oil can be swapped out for softened butter if you prefer.

When pressing the crust batter into the pan, make sure to press it all the way out to the edges of the pan and in to the corners.
