  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line 4 muffin cups with paper liners.
  2. Blend together almond meal, 3 tablespoons lemon juice, and dates in a food processor. Press mixture firmly into bottoms and up sides of prepared muffin cups to make crusts.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until crusts are lightly golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes.
  4. Heat 6 tablespoons lemon juice, lemon zest, and honey in a saucepan over low heat; simmer for 2 minutes. Beat eggs in a bowl. While mixture is simmering, slowly add eggs, whisking vigorously. Remove from heat and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Pour filling into shells, and place in refrigerator to cool.

Our family likes these. My 9 year old chose and made it all on her own. Very easy. It's now her specialty for a healthier family dessert. We do now skip the honey and instead add 2 Splenda pkgs ...

This is worth experimenting with. The tart shells were dense and a bit rubbery, though tender and tasted ok. The batter tasted awesome prior to baking. I might mess with the ingredients a bit...

I wasn't fond of the almond meal, but that is what I looked up the recipe for, so I could use mine up. I added a 1/4 cup gluten free flower and a teaspoon of baking powder, and a 1/2 cup sugar t...
