Ingredients
Crust
  • 2 cups (300g) Blanched Almond Flour
  • 2 tablespoons Coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tablespoon Vanilla extract**Make sure there is no sugar added.
  • 1/4 teaspoon Sea salt
Lemon Curd
  • 3 Free range eggs
  • 1/2 cup (Juice of 3 lemons) Fresh lemon juice
  • 1 lemon Zest
  • 1/4 cup (85g) Raw honey
  • 1/3 cup (75ml) Coconut oil, melted
Meringue
  • 3 Free range egg whites
  • 3 tablespoons Raw honey
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 160°C Fan, 180°C electric, 350°F or gas mark 4.
  2. Grease the pastry tin with coconut oil.
  3. Mix together the ingredients for the crust in a blender until combined. Then press the crust into the tin using a spoon and fork.
  4. Bake for 15 mins or until the crust is lightly golden.
  5. For the lemon curd, beat the eggs well in a bowl. Place the melted butter or coconut oil, honey, lemon juice and zest in a saucepan and stir in the eggs.
  6. Heat over a low heat (if too hot the eggs will curdle) until the mixture begins to thicken and coats the back of a wooden spoon. This should take roughly 8-10 minutes. Once ready pour into a bowl and allow to cool.
  7. Meanwhile make the meringue. Turn the oven up to 200°C Fan, 180°C electric, 356°F or gas mark 6.
  8. Using a very clean and dry bowl and an electric mixer, beat the eggs and honey on high until the mixture forms stiff peaks and develops a glossy texture. This usually takes roughly 4 minutes using an electric mixer at high speed but this will vary according to what you use. Be careful not to over-beat the eggs!
  9. Place the lemon curd over the crust once cool and then top with the meringue either using a piping bag or two spoons.
  10. Bake for 5-6 minutes. Keep a close eye on it! For best results, refrigerate in the baking tin for as long as possible before cutting.
