This coconut crust is gluten free and also perfect for someone following a diabetic diet as it does not contains much carbs. Make sure to use unsweetened shredded coconut though! Coconut is usually unsweetened in New Zealand but not in US. It worth to double check if you are watching your sugar intake or if you are a diabetic.
It is a very easy pie crust recipe.
You simply need a food processor to combine all the ingredients together and form a dough. It could be a bit crumbly at first. In this case gather all the crumble with your hand and press firmly to form a ball like in the picture below.
After few attempts I noticed that this crust is easier to remove from the pan when using a removable bottom round pie pan. I am now using the pan below to make this crust : Non-Stick 9-Inch Round Pan with Removable Bottom.
Below you will find the steps by steps pictures to reproduce this recipe. I used plastic wrap to enclose the dough while rolling into a thin crust. It avoids the crust to stick to the roller.
