Graham Cracker Like Crust

My recipes are grain free, refined sugar and most are dairy free. Welcome to my blog and thanks for taking the time to check out my recipes. I have several autoimmune illnesses and my health was deteriorating. By changing my diet my health has vastly improved. I have always created my own recipes. My husband used to ask if I had written them down. He was the first to suggest writing them down. Then my friends would ask me to share them.

I am always trying to create recipes that taste and make me feel like I am not missing out on anything. I think when you feel deprived or you feel like your missing out then you are not as likely to stick to your diet. I have been eating this was since Oct. 2017.  So occasionally I will eat something that has more carbs or calories than most days. I like to have things that make me feel indulgent. Such as grain free Grain Free Southern Chicken Fried Steak or Tart Lemon Bars.

In the summertime, I don’t like to turn on my oven because it heats my house up too much. I wrote this recipe in hopes of lowering the carbs. I wanted to make a Fresh Strawberry Pie and it needed a crust. But most grain free crusts take a long time to make, then roll out and bake. This one is simple and can be pressed inside your pie tin and bakes a very short time. Use as you would a Graham Cracker crust.

Use with Fresh Strawberry Pie, Fresh Blueberry Pie, and Lemon Meringue Pie.

Nutritional Facts are below and based on 6 pie slices.

1 cup almond flour

1/4 cup cassava flour

2 tablespoon powdered Vanilla Monk Fruit Sugar

1/2 cup coconut oil

Preheat 350. Combine almond flour, cassava flour, and powdered Vanilla Monk Fruit Sugar stir until well combined. Using a pastry blender cut coconut oil into the flour mixture. Mix well until crumbly. Press into an ungreased pie pan or sheet pan. Go around the edges of the pie pan and crimp to make a decorative edge. Bake 12 – 15 minutes
