First, add some Almond Flour, Tapioca Starch, Flax Egg, and Salt to a bowl.

And then you have your dough!

You can now wrap this dough up and keep in it the fridge for later, or pre-bake the pie crust to use in another recipe (pre-baking allows prevents the bottom from getting soggy once liquid ingredients are poured on top of it). I’ve found the best way to do this is to place the ball of dough between two sheets of parchment paper,

roll it out until it is wide enough to fill your pie tin,

then remove the top layer of parchment paper and flip the dough + tin over.

At this point, all you have to do is remove the top layer of parchment paper, mold and shape the pie crust to your liking, and poke some holes into the dough with a fork for ventilation. The Almond Flour has enough natural oil in it to prevent the crust from sticking to the tin – so no need for greasing!

Pop the filled pie tin into the freezer for 20 Minutes, then into the oven it goes! Easy as pie 😉

If you’re looking for some pie-fillers, I’d highly recommend this Vegan Blueberry Pie or these Spinach and Mushroom Crustless Quiches (cut the recipe in half though!)

Instructions

  1. Combine the Ground Flax with Water in a small bowl, and let sit for 5-10 minutes to thicken.
  2. In the meantime, whisk the Almond Flour, Tapioca Flour, and Salt together in a medium to large bowl.
  3. Add in the thickened Flax, and mix until a dough forms. You can start out mixing with either a spatula or fork, but will eventually need to use your hands. The dough should be damp, but not stick to your fingers (if it is, add in 1 tbsp increments of Almond Flour until the texture is as desired).
  4. Place the ball of dough between 2 sheets of parchment paper, and roll the dough out until it becomes wide enough to cover the base of your pie tin. Peel off the top layer of parchment paper, and gently place your pie tin on top of the dough. Flip the tin over, and remove the other sheet of parchment paper, which should now be on top.
  5. Use your fingers to press the dough evenly into the pie tin (it should be damp, but not sticky). Poke several holes in the dough using a fork. Place the pie tin in the freezer for 20 Minutes; during this time, turn the oven on to 400F.
  6. Cover the dough with Foil and pie weights (or dried beans), then bake for 15 minutes. Uncover, then use the pre-baked pie crust in any recipe of your choosing! 

Notes

  • I have not tested this recipe with any other flours, and thus cannot recommend substitutions.
  • Ground Flax may be substituted with Ground Chia Seeds, but not Whole.
  • This dough can be made ahead of time and stored in the fridge for up to 3 days prior. I would suggest wrapping it tightly in Syran Wrap, so it does not lose any moisture.

  1. Once I pre bake pie crust can I leave it out on the counter if I am using it only the next day or should I refrigerate it?

    1. I’d recommend just making the dough ahead of time and storing it in the fridge covered in Syran Wrap and then pre baking it when you are ready to make your pie. If you pre bake the crust too far in advance, is might dry out or loose some of its crispness.
