Spiced Quinoa Pie Crust (Gluten Free)
Not sure you’re ready to give up pie crust and just have crust-less pies? Need a healthy alternative? Then try this one. Plus, it’s gluten free!
1 c quinoa flour
2 T coconut sugar
¼ t baking powder
¼ t salt
½ t each ginger and cinnamon
¼ c coconut oil, semi-firm
3 T cold water
Preheat oven to 350. Grease the base and sides of a standard pie plate.
Mix all dry ingredients in a medium bowl. Add coconut oil and mash through with a fork until well combined and crumbly.
Stir in 2 T of water first then add the final T if needed – ‘crumbs’ should hold together when pressed but not be wet.
Turn into prepared pan and press evenly across base and up sides, using a large spoon.
Refrigerate for 10 minutes, then bake in pre-heated oven for 15 minutes until lightly golden.
Fill with any healthy pie filling you love best.
Pie is great. But healthy pie – well, that’s even better. Enjoy!
Note: You can cut the recipe in half if it’s more than you need -or- increase it for a top crust.
