Clean Eating Pie Crust

You can thank me later for this 🙂

I took a recipe I already had from previous years and just made some substitutions to it and….VOILA!!! 

This recipe will make about 2-3 pie crust depending on how thick you roll it out.


INGREDIENTS

  • 2 3/4 whole wheat flour (you can also use coconut or almond flour)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup almond milk (you can also use soy, rice or full-fat cows milk)

DIRECTIONS

  • Prepare your pie tins
  • Spray you tin with a coat of spray-on olive oil or coconut oil
  • Add about 1/8 cup whole wheat flour to the tin
  • Shake your tin around until the flour completely coats the surface. Set them aside.

DOUGH DIRECTIONS

  • Put flour and salt into a mixing bowl and mix.
  • Measure your milk and oil into the same cup.
  • Add the milk and oil in with the flour. Mix well by hand until you have firm dough. It can take some time, so don’t give up!
  • Place your dough on a large piece of parchment paper. Flatten it out slightly with your hands or rolling pin, and then place another piece of parchment paper over the top of the dough, so the dough is sandwiched in between. Roll with your rolling pin until your dough is about 1/8 of an inch thick. Or even 1/4 inch is fine. You may need to lift the parchment occasionally or flip the whole thing over to get rid of the wrinkles in the parchment paper. 
  • Place your pie tins upside down on your dough. Flip the whole thing over and mold your dough to fit into your pie tin. Do this part carefully so you don’t rip the dough at all. 
  • Remove the top sheet of paper and roll any wrinkles some more. You should have a nice, even and smooth piece of dough. (no, we’re not talking about money here unfortunately 😉 )Divided your dough in half 
  • Place your tins upside down on the dough and flipped it over. Mold the dough into the tins. Be careful on this part so you don’t rip the dough at all. 
  • Cut the excess dough off around the edge of the pan. Keep your knife upright so you get a nice and even cut. Crimp with a fork, or use your fingers to pinch the sides in some. Then you can place the whole thing in a large ziplock bag and freeze them till you need them!!
