Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup coconut flour (100 g / 3.5 oz)
  • 2 tablespoons psyllium husks (100 g / 3.5 oz)
  • 1 teaspoon xanthan gum (100 g / 3.5 oz)
  • 1 pinch salt (100 g / 3.5 oz)
  • 1/4 cup butter (100 g / 3.5 oz)
  • 1/4 cup water (100 g / 3.5 oz)
  • 1 cup almond flour (100 g / 3.5 oz)
  • 1/3 cup flax seed meal (100 g / 3.5 oz)
  • 1 tablespoon psyllium husks (100 g / 3.5 oz)
  • 1 pinch salt (100 g / 3.5 oz)
  • 1/4 cup butter (100 g / 3.5 oz)
  • 4 tablespoons water
  • pie crust
  • pie crust (100 g / 3.5 oz)
  • pie crust

Instructions

  • Mix all the dry ingredients - the almond flour, coconut flour, psyllium powder, glucomannan powder and salt (Recipe 1).
  • Add the butter cut in pieces.
  • Using your hands, combine the dry ingredients with the butter.
  • Add water and mix until well combined.
  • Place the dough in a plastic wrap and flatten using your hands.
  • Place in the fridge for 30-60 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 175 °C/ 350 °F.
  • Method 1: rolling.
  • Remove the dough from the fridge and roll out (I used a nonstick silicone rolling pin) till the dough is about the size of a pie pan - I used a non-stick pan with a removable bottom.
  • Because there are no eggs in this recipe, the dough will be very fragile so you'll have to be careful not to tear it apart.
  • Method 2: press down.
  • Alternatively, place the dough directly into a non-stick pan with a removable bottom and press up the sides using your fingers to create a "bowl" shape.
  • Use a dough roller or wet your hands if needed.
  • Ideally, use a baking sheet as lining for the bottom to ensure that the crust doesn't get stuck to it.
  • Place baking paper on top and use ceramic baking beans to weight the dough down.
  • You will need them to prevent the dough from rising and creating air bubbles, especially if you are making a large pie.
  • Place in the oven and bake for 18-20 minutes.
  • When done, remove from the oven.
  • Remove the baking paper with the ceramic beans.
  • If the center of the pie seems too moist, place back in the preheated oven (switched off) just to dry out.
  • Fill with your favourite filling (keto lemon curd, whipped cream, or any savoury filling like pork and eggs or chicken).
  • If not using straight away, let the pie crust cool down.
  • Once chilled, store in an airtight container and keep at room temperature.
