  9. Add walnuts and cashews to your food processor or blender and pulse until finely ground.
  10. Add eggs, honey, and maple syrup, blend for 2-3 minutes or until completely smooth.
  11. Mix in the remaining ingredients.
  12. Pour mixture into the cooled pie shell.
  13. Spread the top out evenly with a spatula.
