CRUST:

First, preheat your oven to 325.

In your Food Processor, put your three crust ingredients and blend until it's incorporated together and crumbly.

Spray your Spring Form pan (a cake pan will work) with some non stick spray. (we used Coconut)

Now firmly and evenly press your crust onto the bottom of your pan.
Bake this at 325 degrees for 5 minutes.

While your crust is baking, rince out your Processor then add ALL your filling ingredients and blend until you get a smooth consistency.  (you may need to stop and scrap the sides a few times.)

Take your pan out of the oven after the 5 minutes but leave your oven at 325.
Pour your filling into your pan and spread it out evenly.

Bake this for 30 to 35 minutes. Until the sides start to separate from the pan and the middle is set.

Take a knife and insert it into the center, if it comes out clean it's done.

Let it completely cool on your counter then put it into your Refrigerator for several hours to set.

Cut into slices and prepare for a delightful and delicious treat!


Enjoy!
