Ingredients

Crust:

  • 2/3 C Brazil nuts + extra chopped ones for the topping
  • 2/3 C almond flour
  • 1 C all purpose gluten-free flour mix
  • 10 pitted medjool dates
  • 1 tablespoon vegan honey or maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoon coconut oil or vegan butter
  • 1 teaspoon ginger powder
  • 1 teaspoon crushed Camellia Sinensis Earl Grey
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt

Filling:

  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 3 tablespoon tapioca flour
  • 3 diced pears + extra super thin slices for the top
  • ¼ C candied ginger
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2/3 C coconut or muscovado sugar
  • 1 teaspoon crushed Camellia Sinensis Earl Grey

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350°F. Set a pie plate on the side.

In a food processor or Vitamix, pulse the Brazil nuts first until they are crumbly. Then add all the other ingredients and blend until homogenous but still coarse (you don't want to lose all the texture). Press mixture evenly into the bottom of your pie plate. Bake crust for about 10 minutes or until just golden.

In a saucepan whisk together lemon juice and tapioca flour. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally for 10 to 15 minutes (let it thicken).  Cool the filling a little before adding to the baked crust. Top with thin pear slices and chopped Brazil nuts tossed in a little vegan honey or maple syrup. Bake for about 30 minutes or until golden. Bon appetit!
