Ingredients for Topping:
- 3 whole cage-free eggs
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 1/2 cup lemon juice
- 1 cup of almonds
- 1 cup of pecans (or other nut, I used cashews)
- 1/4 cup of honey
- 1/2 cup of melted unrefined coconut oil
- 2 whole cage-free eggs
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
I started with the topping to allow it time to cool. I started by taking a sauce pan and blending the eggs, honey, and lemon juice together. After they are blended, I turned on the heat to about medium-high and slowly added the coconut oil. I would probably add it all at once or all in small pieces. I stirred until the mixture begins to solidify and bubble. You will see the mixture thicken and in my case, the oil didn't melt before it thickened (which is why I would add it in small pieces and not the glob I used). Once it got to the point where it started bubbling, I placed the topping in a bowl and put it in the fridge to solidify further.
Instructions for the crust:
I only had a 1/2 cup of almonds so I used that with the other nut I had in the house, cashews. So I put the 1/2 cup of almonds and the 1 1/2 cup of cashews in a food processor and pulsed them to where they were finely chopped. I stopped often and mixed the nuts up so that I didn't turn the nuts into a butter. Having some nut chunks is fine. From there, I placed the rest of the ingredients (honey, coco oil, eggs, sea salt) in the food processor and pulsed a few times until everything was well mixed and had something that resembled a chunky batter. I placed the batter into a coconut oil greased 9 x 9 inch baking pan I had and placed it into the oven that was preheated to 400 degrees. I let that bake for about 10 minutes. I took it out, placed a knife in and it came out pretty clean. I placed the crust onto a cooling rack for a while. Be gentle because the crust will come out very soft like a cake.
When everything was cool, I placed the cake onto a plate, spread out the topping across it and placed it back in the fridge for a little while until after dinner. What came out was an awesome dessert.
