- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon (20 g) pure maple syrup
- ½ cup (43 g) unsweetened shredded coconut

- To make the crust, pulse the pecans into a powdery flour in your food processor, then add the dates and keep processing until everything sticks together. Press into a pie dish and put in the fridge.
