  • 3/4 cup Nutiva coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil

  • 1/4 cup Nutiva buttery coconut oil

  • 1 tsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp. Redmond real salt

  1. To make crust, combine flour, salt, coconut oil, olive oil and apple cider vinegar with your hands until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Toss with fork until dough comes together. Gather into a ball and press it into a 9-inch pie plate. Set aside.

  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

  3. To make filling, beat eggs until foaming. Add olive oil, coconut oil, apple cider vinegar and salt. Beat until well combined.

  4. Add sugar and flour and beat well.

  5. Add almond milk, vanilla and 3/4 cup pecans and beat until smooth.

  6. Pour filling into 9-inch pie shell.

  7. Bake for ten minutes. Pull pie out and add remaining pecans on top to cover pie.

  8. Reduce heat to 300 degrees F and bake for 30-35 minutes until pie is moist and soft – but not wet. Let sit for 10 minutes before cutting.
