Key Lime Pie – GF


About two years ago, my wife started to notice the impact of gluten on her. She felt much better when she kept it out of her diet. So over the that few years we have found some great gluten free (GF) foods. This pie, and crust, is a wonderful example of something can be healthly and scrumptious.

1 cup pecans
Pinch sea salt
1/3 cup pitted Medjool dates, roughly chopped
