So this summer, I wanted to try something fruity and very summer-like.  So, I had some limes and some coconut and figured I make a dessert with these.  It’s like lemon squares, but more “tropical”.  It was very tasty and full of real lime flavor!!!

For the Crust:

1/2 Cup Almond Flour

1/4 Cup Coconut Flour

1/3 Cup Flaked Coconut

1/4 Cup Confectioners Sugar

1/4 tsp Salt

For the Custard:

4 eggs

1 Cup Sugar

1/3 Cup Coconut Flour

1/4 tsp Xanthum Gum

1/2 Cup Fresh Lime  Juice (about 3 large limes)

1 Tbs Lime Zest

1/3 Cup Flaked Coconut

 

Make the Crust:

Preheat oven to 325 degrees and butter and flour a 8 inch square pan.  I used rice flour to flour the pan.  In a bowl, blend together flours, coconut, confectioners sugar and salt until it looks like a coarse meal.  You can use a pastry cutter or your own fingers. Pat the mixture onto the pan.  Bake for about 20 minutes until golden brown.

 

Make the Custard:

Whisk together eggs and granulated sugar until combined.  Mix in flour, Xanthum Gum, lime juice, and zest.

Pour mixture over crust and bake for about 20 minutes.  Sprinkle with flaked coconut and bake for an additional 5 minutes, or until set.  Let stand on cooling rack and then chill for at least an hour.
