How to break your mind in three easy steps

  • Two and a half cups of pecans
  • One cup of hazelnuts
  • Three medjool dates
  • Half a cup of maple syrup
  • Three eggs
  • One tablespoon of coconut flour
  • 4 table spoons of butter
  • (optional awesomeness – 2 teaspoons of cinnamon, half an orange zest)

To make the crust:
Stick one and a quarter cup of pecans and one cup of hazelnuts in the food processor and coarsely grind. Mix in 4 table spoons of butter and fashion around your pie dish (I almost typed pie hole..:S). Bake it in your oven at 170C for five minutes.

For the filling:
Process the rest of your pecans (leave a few to decorate the top) with the dates eggs syrup and the rest o the ingredients then pour and level into the pie dish. Add the remaining pecans and bake for 20 minutes at the same temp.
Don’t worry if the top of the crust is a little bit crumbly, it tastes awesome.
That’s it! YAAAAAAAY

    Does anyone know if this can be pre-made and frozen? How does it reheat?

    I just made it this recipe.

    It has a very strong taste of maple syrup, and yes, the crust is quite crumbly. I would recommend using another sweetener (unless you like syrup-y pie), and I’ve found that using the dates in the crust will make it more sturdy.

    Overall, it should be pretty tasty for Thanksgiving!

    Hey K….chill. Lots of people in the paleo community eat butter, especially from pastured raised cows. And it depends on your definition of paleo, which there are a few. So relax.

    Are there 4 TBS of butter in the crust AND the pie filling? Or just in the crust? This is not clear to me in the directions. Thanks….

      Also, can you substitute coconut oil for the butter in the pie filling?
