Oatmeal Cookie Pie Crust

This has been my favorite crust for making pies.  It has the most graham cracker taste of regular pie crusts.  I personally think this crust tastes more like a cookie though, so it’s kind of like you get two desserts in one!  This crust is much healthier than store-bought crusts.  However, because it is gluten-free it does get a bit crumbly, but still holds the pie together.  Just be careful serving that first piece, which actually isn’t that different than most pies.

This recipe was adapted from FatFree Vegan:

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup GF rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup sorghum flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar (packed)
  • 2 tbsp natural sugar
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup applesauce

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375F and grease a 9-inch pie pan.
  2. Put the oats into a food processor or blender and process until finely ground.
  3. Add the remaining dry ingredients and blend to combine.
  4. Pour into a bowl and stir in the wet ingredients until completely combined.
  5. Put the mixture into the prepared pie pan and flatten the crust along the bottom of the pan and along the sides with moist fingers.
  6. Bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes, until it is crisp but not overdone.  Allow to cool before filling with any pie recipe!
