How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x12-inch pan that’s lined with aluminum foil.
  • To make filling, add enough water to lime juice to equal 1½ cups liquid. Whisk juice together with egg yolks, sugar, cornstarch and zest in a heavy-bottom saucepan and cook over low heat, stirring constantly until mixture has thickened and there are no lumps. Set aside to cool slightly.
  • In a separate bowl, sift together flour blend, potato starch, baking powder, xanthan gum and salt. Set aside.
  • Cream butter or shortening. Add brown sugar and mix well.
  • Add flour mixture slowly to sugar mixture, scraping bowl often. Do not over-mix. Mixture will be crumbly. Add quinoa flakes or oatmeal.
  • Firmly pat about half of crumb mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan with your fingertips, making a smooth layer. Spoon the key lime filling over the crumb layer. Sprinkle remaining crumbs over the top of the filling. Some filling will show through.
  • Bake 30 to 35 minutes in preheated oven until lightly browned. Cool completely before cutting into squares. Sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving
