These mouthwatering, sink your teeth in Key Lime Pie Bars. 😋
They are vegan, gluten free and no baking required!!!
I never liked key lime pie growing up until I went to Key West and was forced to try a Key Lime Pie. I can tell you that key lime pie was the best I’ve EVER had. And I’ve heard key limes have something to do with it!
Conclusion: Key lime flavor is extremely underrated and I recommend Key Limes for this recipe! 🍋(Regular limes will still do the trick)
1 cup raw cashews (boil and soak for at least one hour, or soak overnight)
1 cup coconut cream (full fat)
2 tbsp tapioca flour
1/2 cup key lime juice
Lime zest from 1-2 limes
1/4 cup maple syrup
Pinch of sea salt
1 cup oats
1 cup almonds (any nuts would work)
1 1/2 Tbsp coconut sugar
3-4 Tbsp coconut oil (melted)
Preheat oven to 350.
In a food processor, blend together all crust ingredients except coconut oil.
Once mixture is combined. Add melted coconut oil, starting with 3 Tbsp (add more if it's too dry.)
Pulse in food processor until a loose dough is formed.
Press the crust mix into a parchment lined 8x8 pan.
Bake fro 10 minutes.
While baking, make the filling.
Blend all filling ingredients inside a food processor or blender until you have a liquid consistency.
Pour over crust and place in fridge until set. can also place in freezer for a faster set but this might make the curst harden a bit.
Top with more lime zest and sliced limes and ENJOY!
