Gluten-Free Coconut Flour Pie Crust

Ingredients:

½ cup Coco Treasure Certified Organic Coconut Oil, melted
2 large eggs
¼ teaspoon sea salt
¾ cup Coco Treasure Certified Organic Coconut Flour
1 tablespoon Coco Treasure Organic Coconut Nectar Syrup

Directions

 

Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

Cream coconut oil, eggs, salt and syrup together in a mixing bowl until all ingredients are well incorporated.

Add flour ¼ cup at a time. Stir until the dough comes together. Remember, coconut flour is highly absorbent. Adding the flour slowly allows you to adjust as you stir, making sure the dough doesn’t become too dry too quickly.

Gather the dough into a ball, and wrap it in plastic wrap. Place the ball in a cool, but not cold, place to rest for about 20 minutes. Over chilling will cause the coconut oil to harden and make the dough difficult to work with.

The lack of gluten makes it difficult to roll this dough in the traditional manner. Instead, pat the dough directly into a lightly greased pie pan until there is an even layer across the bottom and up the sides. Crimp the edges as you please. Use a fork to prick holes in the bottom and prevent the crust from forming air bubbles while baking.

Par-bake for approximately 15 minutes or until very lightly golden. Add your favorite pie fillings as desired.
