 The filling is sweet enough even with just two tablespoons of sugar. The ViSalus Protein Shake mix gives it sweet vanilla flavor which let me cut down on added sugar in this recipe. The crust is one of my easiest and healthiest ones. If you don’t have coconut or don’t like coconut, just use more almonds or more oats. Combine it all with melted coconut oil and press into the pan. Pour the filling on top and bake. It’s so easy!
