1.В В Adjust the oven rack to the middle position and preheat oven to 350В°F.

3.В В Press mixture into nine-inch pie plate greased with coconut oil. Using the bottom of a measuring cup, press crumbs into an even layer on the bottom and sides of the plate. Bake until crust is fragrant and looks slightly dried out (about 30 minutes). Allow to cool completely on a wire rack (about 45 minutes).

Reduce speed to medium-low until incorporated and no streaks remain (1 to 2 minutes).

5.В В Scrape mixture into the cooled pie shell and smooth top. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until filling is chilled and set (at least eight hours, or up to one day). Cut pie into eight slices and serve.
