For the Crust:

1 cup cassava flour

¼ cup almond flour

¼ cup erythritol

½ tablespoon lemon zest

3 tablespoons butter or coconut oil, softened

  1. For the Crust: Heat oven to 180°C and prepare a 9×9 inch pan, grease with butter or coconut oil. In a large mixing bowl combine the almond flour, coconut flour, sweetener, and lemon zest then stir until all ingredients are combined.
  2. Cut the softened butter or oil into the flour mix with a fork. Or use your hand and crumble the mixture.

  5. Pour in lemon juice. Be sure to use a strainer if you are using freshly squeezed juice!
  6. Slowly whisk in the eggs and stir continuously over medium-low heat until the mixture begins to thicken. This should talk about 5 to 10 minutes.
  7. Transfer the lemon filling into your crust and return to the oven for 15 minutes. Prepare the topping.
