  10. ------------------------------

  11. First, make the crust.

  12. Crust ingredients:

  13. 1 cup flaked unsweetened organic coconut

  14. 1 cup pecan pieces

  15. 1/2 cup all purpose gluten-free flour blend

  16. 1/2 cup organic light brown sugar

  17. 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

  18. 5 tablespoons vegan butter (I used Earth Balance)

  19. Instructions:

  20. Preheat the oven to 350ºF.

  21. Place all of the dry ingredients into a food processor bowl and pulse until the mixture looks like coarse sand. Add in the vegan butter and pulse several times in short bursts until the crumbs are moist and begin to fall away from the sides of the bowl.

  22. Dump the crumbs into the cake pan and spread them evenly. Using your fingers gently press the crumbs across the bottom and up the sides- about 2/3 of the way up.

  23. Bake in the center of the oven for about 7 minutes, to set.

  24. Remove the pan and set aside.
