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 pie as the recipe called for.
