Preheat oven to 330°F degrees.

Place the almond flour, dates, coconut oil, lemon juice and salt into a food processor. Pulse several times until the mixture resembles wet sand.

Press the crust mixture firmly into a lightly greased tart pan. Poke some holes in the bottom of the crust with a fork. Bake for 8-10 minutes until fragrant. Remove and cool completely.

Make the custard filling.

Place all the ingredients in a small saucepan and whisk to combine. Heat on medium heat and bring to a brief boil. Reduce heat and simmer for a couple of minutes or until it starts to thicken.

Remove from heat and pour into the prepared base. Let it cool down to room temperature, then place in the refrigerator.
