  • 1 jar Julie's Real Cinnamon Vanilla Bean Cashew Butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp. Ground Cloves

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Combine all ingredients into a food processor, and pulse for about 30-35 seconds. Scrape sides of food processer and blend for another 10-15 seconds.
  3. Spray pie plate with coconut oil. Pour ingredients from food processor into pie plate.
  4. Once oven is heated to 375 degrees Fahrenheit, bake pie for 35 minutes or until the center is set.
