For the filling:


Directions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 170 degrees and grease a pie dish.
  2. To make the crust: Place the butter, flour, protein powder and salt in a bowl. Work together using fingertips - not palms (to prevent melting the butter). Bring together to a crumbly consistency.

  4. Place dough onto a floured surface and roll to 1/2cm thickness.
  5. Press into greased pie tin, discarding overflowing edges and set aside.
  6. To make the filling: Place all filling ingredients into a blender and combine until smooth.
  7. Scatter 3/4 of the pecans over the crust and then pour the date mix over the top.
  8. Scatter the remaining pecans over the top.
  9. Place pie in the oven and bake for 35-40 minutes or until pie is golden brown and set.
  10. Remove from the oven and allow to cool before removing from the tin.
  11. Best served warm with cream or ice cream.
