This past Thanksgiving I wanted to make a healthy, gluten free vegan pie crust.  It was a bit of a tall order but I figured it out.  It was delicious and super easy, I didn’t even need a rolling pin.

  • 1 1/2 cup ground oats – I ground regular oats in the vitamix until they were in powder form.
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/2 cup solid coconut oil kept in the fridge so it is hard
  • 8 tablespoons ice water

Blend the salt and oats in the food processor, add the coconut oil, add a tablespoon at a time of ice water so that it forms a ball – you may not need all of the water.  Pat into the pie plate.  Bake as you would any pie crust.  I made a pecan pie and put the filling into the pie2014-10-18 19.48.25 as the recipe called for.
