No one will ever guess it's vegan and gluten-free!Say hello to the easiest pie crust you’ll ever make. With just one bowl and 5 simple ingredients, this beauty comes together in a matter of minutes.

The first time I used this crust was for my Apple Crumb Pie that I posted a few years ago. Since then I’ve tweaked it ever so slightly so that it’s even better. However, the main star of the show remains the same.

Bob’s Red Mill Super-fine Almond Flour is one of my all-time favorite baking ingredients. It pairs so well with whole grain flours in gluten-free recipes because it gives a lighter texture and a finer crumb with a delicious buttery flavor. I always make sure to have some on hand.

In this recipe, the almond flour is the main ingredient which makes for a rich crust that almost has the texture of shortbread. It gets mixed with a bit of tapioca starch to help bind and lighten the crust, coconut oil which also binds and provides moisture, and pure maple syrup for a hint of sweetness.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups almond flour*
  • 1/2 cup tapioca starch
  • 1/2 cup melted unrefined coconut oil (or vegan margarine)
  • 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350°F then line the bottom of a pie dish with a circular piece of parchment paper.

In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients and stir together until a dough forms. Transfer to the middle of a lined pie dish then use a spatula (or the palm of your hand) to press it down into the dish. Use your fingers to firmly press the crust outward and upward along the sides of the dish so that the edges are about 1/4 to 1/2-inch thick. The more firmly you press it down into the dish, the better it will hold together.

Prick the bottom of the crust with a fork and bake the crust for 7 minutes in the oven then set aside to cool. Top with desired filling and bake as directed. *If baking for longer than 30 minutes, you may need to wrap the edges of the crust with foil to keep from burning.
