Coconut Flour Low Carb Pie Crust
This delicious tasting Coconut Flour Low Carb Pie Crust is easy to make and is friendly to Gluten Free, Vegan, Paleo, Keto and Organic recipes.
Preheat your oven to 400 and place the rack in the center of the oven. This recipe is for a 9" pie crust. I lightly spray my pie pan for nonstick.
In a medium bowl, sift together the coconut flour and the salt.
Next, in a mixing bowl, beat together the butter, eggs, and the sugar alternative
For the next step, we will add the dry ingredients from the first bowl to the wet ingredients in the second bowl. Because we are working with coconut flour, we will gently stir it into the wet ingredients and allow it to set for a few minutes. This will allow the flour to absorb the liquid. The work the dough into a ball.
Work the ball into the prepared pie dish and then poke a few breathing holes into the crust using a fork. Bake this crust for 8-10 minuter or until it begins to brown. Then allow it to cool.
As mentioned, we are using coconut flour as a substitute for all purpose flour.
When it comes to replacing all purpose flour with coconut flour in baked recipes, you will need less of the coconut flour than your would need of the regular all purpose kind. This is because of the coconut flour will absorb liquids more efficiently than all purpose flour would. So, as a result, to balance out the ingredients in your recipe, less of the coconut flour is needed.
The good news about coconut flour is that it is plant based and friendly to Gluten Free, Vegan, Paleo, Keto and Organic recipes.
Coconut flour is also high in fiber and healthy fats as well as having protein in it. Unlike some other flour alternatives, coconut flour can be used to thicken gravy and soups.
