Traditional pie and cheesecake crust is often made of processed flour, refined sugar and butter. For this healthy crust, pecans step in adding a crunchy texture and nutty flavor. A little bit of coconut oil helps the crust stick together for easy slicing.

Kitchen Tips

  • A springform pan is a must for this recipe. It makes removing the cheesecake a cinch. A 7-inch round is recommended, but 6-inch would also work.
  • When it comes to decorating your cheesecake, look for edible or food safe flowers or foliage. Pansies, marigolds, hibiscus, honeysuckle, chamomile and calendula are all great choices.
  • Coconut butter can be purchased in most health food grocers or online. You can also make your own by blending unsweetened coconut flakes in a food processor until smooth and creamy, about 8-10 minutes, scraping the sides as needed.
