***Update: Here’s the Apple Pie recipe I made with this crust. Click here.
- 2 cups blanched almond flour
- ½ cup coconut oil, melted
- 2 tablespoons full fat coconut milk, cold*
- 2 tablespoons raw honey
- Using a rubber spatula, mix all ingredients for the crust just until combined. Do not over mix.
- Press the dough into the bottom and sides of a 9-inch pie plate. Create fluted edges with fingers if desired.
- Cover pie, and freeze until ready to bake.
Tips: Use gloves when handling and shaping this pie, especially if you live in warm climate. This will help keep the dough dry while you spread it on the pie plate, as the oils of your hands won't touch the dough.
For the right consistency, make sure to use blanched almond flour that has been ground into fine powder. Below are the ingredients I used to make this pie.
