Instructions Checklist
  • Combine pecans, walnuts, dates, 2 tablespoons coconut oil, and ½ teaspoon salt in the bowl of a food processor; process until all ingredients are finely ground. The pecan mixture should easily stick together when squeezed. Divide pecan mixture evenly among the cups of a 12-cup mini-muffin pan; press evenly along bottom and slightly up sides of muffin cups to form each pie’s crust. Place in freezer while you prepare the filling.
