Preparation

Step 1

Crust:
grind the pecans until coarse meal using a food processor or a blender and place it in a bowl
mix in the almond flour, coconut oil and honey
line a 7×5 glass baking dish with parchment paper and spread the mixture until evenly distributed
bake crust at 350°F for about about 10 minutes or until the edges start to brown
let it cool on a wire rack

Chocolate Layer:
melt the chocolate chips in a double boiler
add heavy cream and mix to combine
pour mixture on top of the crust and refrigerate

Coconut Cream Layer:
combine the coconut milk, egg, arrowroot powder, honey and salt in a saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring constantly until it thickens
stir in the shredded coconut and vanilla extract
pour the filling over the cooled crust and chocolate
refrigerate for about 4 hours or until the coconut layer is firm

Coconut Whipping Cream:
open the lid of a can of full fat coconut milk and refrigerate a day before you make this pie. The coconut milk will thicken and separate from its water. Remove the can of coconut milk from the fridge and take ½ cup of the solid coconut and place it in a bowl. Be careful not to mix the solid coconut with the water in the bottom of the can.
whip the coconut with a hand mixer until fluffy. Spread it over the coconut cream layer

Toasted Coconut:
toast coconut in the oven for just a few minutes at 350°F until it begins to turn brown and sprinkle over the coconut cream pie. Be careful and watch this step closely so the coconut does not burn.
