Why You’ll Love This Recipe
This keto pie crust is one of my favorite for sweet and savory pie because it’s:
- Made With 4 Ingredients
- Ready In Under 30 Minutes
How To Make Coconut Flour Pie Crust
You can prepare your coconut flour pie crust either in a food processor or in a simple mixing bowl.
Both methods work very well and create a pie crust in less than 15 minutes.
As this recipe uses beaten eggs, it is primordial to have all ingredients at room temperature.
In fact, cold eggs create lumps when in contact with coconut flour, and hot melted coconut oil (or butter) will cook your eggs.
Another great thing about this coconut flour pie crust, you can store the dough in the fridge for 24 hours to make any pie ahead. Isn’t that easy and simple?
Pie Crust Ingredients
This is an easy 4-ingredient keto recipe, and all you need to make this delicious easy keto pie crust with coconut flour are:
- Coconut Flour – always use fresh coconut flour with no lumps. Any lumps mean that your coconut flour has soaked some air moisture. Coconut flour is one of the best keto-friendly flours.
- Coconut oil – if you don’t like the flavor of coconut oil, you can also use refined coconut oil. It has no flavor. Otherwise, use grass-fed butter or ghee.
- Eggs – you must use large eggs at room temperature in this recipe. Don’t replace with flax eggs, or the crust gets very soft and won’t crisp.
- Salt or sweetener – add 1 teaspoon of salt for a savory pie. Otherwise, add 2 tablespoons of sugar-free crystal sweetener for a sweet pie along with 2 teaspoons of spices if desired – I like cinnamon and ginger to make a keto pumpkin pie.
Rolling Or Pressing The Dough
Obviously, the recipe works in any kind of pie pan, but it gets crispier in a non-ceramic pie dish.
After a few attempts, I noticed that this coconut flour pie crust is easier to remove from a non-stick removable bottom pan.
Also, note that this dough doesn’t obviously need to be rolled.
It is up to you to roll it between two pieces of parchment paper, then flip it over on the pan.
Or, press in the dough ball to cover the pan.
Both methods work very well. I personally prefer to roll my dough to keep the crust thickness the same all over the pie.
You will love this buttery coconut flour pie crust. It has a divine coconut taste.
What Keto Pie To Make
You can make either a sweet sugar-free pie or a savory pie like a delicious broccoli and bacon quiche as a healthy keto dinner.
If you use the recipe as a pastry shell, you must prebake the crust even longer. In this case, prick the crust and bake it for 20-30 minutes at 350°F (180°C).
Make sure you cover the crust with a piece of foil. This prevents the crust borders from browning too fast.
Remove from the oven when the crust is crispy and golden on the sides. Cool it down, then add any cold filling like cream cheese or custard.
