1/2 cup honey (up to 3/4 if you like a little sweeter)
zest of 1 lime
1/2 cup lime juice from fresh limes
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/3 cup water
2 tsp gelatin (I used Great Lakes brand - the kind that gels)
1 cup macadamia nuts (unsalted)
4-5 dates (I used Sonnewalds date rolls rolled in coconut because that is what I had on hand)
For the crust:
Chop nuts and dates in a food processor until the mixture is moist but not like nut butter. It will be more meal-like. Press into a pie plate and chill.
For the filling:
In a large saucepan, whisk the eggs and honey over low heat.
Add the zest and whisk in.
Add the coconut oil and butter and whisk in.
Add the lime juice - keep whisking.
Turn up the heat to medium-low and keep whisking. The mixture will thicken but you don't want it to boil.
Remove it from the heat when it thickens.
In a small bowl, mix the water and gelatin. Microwave for 15-30 seconds or until it just boils.
Whisk the gelatin into the filling.
If you have lumps or any hardened egg pieces, simply strain through a mesh strainer.
Pour the filling into your crust.
Place in the fridge until set (about 2-3 hours).
Enjoy! I suppose you could add a topping, but I liked it as is. This is not overly sweet - if you like really sweet desserts, add more honey.
