Oat pie Crust - low or no sugar, low fat

Oat Pie Crust - No gluten, low or no sugar, low fat

I love Graham cracker pie crusts.  But I do not lone the amount of sugar and fat in them.  And some people can't eat the gluten in a Graham cracker pie crust. Can an Oat or Oatmeal pie crust taste as good and also be much healthier? The answer is yes! If you have Celiac disease, you can even replace the small amount fo wheat flour with almond , soy or other non-gluten containing flour.

So, this pie crust can be made gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free and Vegan-friendlyOat pie crust

Ingredients

  • 1 cup oats.  You can use either quick-cooking oats or regular "old fashioned" rolled oats.
  • 1/3 cup sifted all-purpose flour. Again, you can substitute a gluten-free flour, like almond, flour, rice flour, soy flour, etc.
  • 3 Tablespoons dark or light brown sugar - or - 4 Tablespoons Truvia (Stevia).  3 Tablespoons of Honey or agave should work, too. I just haven't tried it yet.
  • 1/3 cup cold butter (5 tablespoons) The same amount of coconut oil should work. This helps to bind the oats together.

Directions

Step 1 - Mix dry ingredients

Mix the oats, flour, sugar and salt.

Step 2 - Add in the butter or coconut oil

The simplest way to cut in the butter is to put the mix into a food processor and give it about 10 seconds.  The manual method is to use a pastry cutter to cut in the butter until the mixture is crumbly.

Step 3 - Press into the 9" pie plate

First lightly grease the pie plate with coconut or or similar.

Then press the oat mix in firmly on the bottom and sides. You can use a large spoon, which works well for the sides.  I find my hand works best for the bottom.

 Step 4 - Bake for 13 to 15 minutes at 375 F

Bake at 375 for 13-15 minutes or until the crust is lightly browned.

Let cool then fill with the pie filling!
