To me pie is the ultimate dessert. It’s the perfect combination of sweet, soft filling and crunchy crust. I used to be a filling person rather than crust. I would eat ALL the cheesecake filling and leave the crust on the plate complaining that it was soggy and tasteless. There are very few crusts out there that I will actually finish .. and this is one of them. Its firm and crispy, low fat but still tastes rich. Hope you like it as much as I do. This recipe makes a tiny 6” pie crust, perfect for a little dessert for two. Double it up and use a 9” dish to feed more.
Stuff you’ll need:
¼ cup + ⅛ cup coconut flour
¼ cup oat flour
2 tsp coconut oil
2 tsp agave syrup or honey
1 tsp almond butter (PB, cashew butter)
How to do it:
Heat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
Ad all the ingredients to a medium bowl and mix well.
Spray a small pie tin with olive oil spray or any other non-stick cooking spray you prefer.
Press the dough into the tin evenly. Make sure to really press it down and smoothen it out as much as you can.
Bake for 15-20mins depending on how crunchy you want it. I usually bake for around 16mins.
Let it cool and fill it with your favourite pie filling
Why it’s good for you:
Nuts for Coconuts! Lol I can’t believe I just said that! #soundedbetterinmyhead Coconut is very high in fiber and everyone knows why fiber is good (it makes you poop in case you were wondering). Foods high in fiber give you the feeling of being full, pass through the digestive tract easily and reduce risk of colorectal cancer. Other than fiber, coconut is high in calcium, potassium and magnesium. It has shown to improve the body’s absorption of calcium and magnesium, thus supporting the development of strong bones and teeth.
