  • Paleo Pie Crust Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 2 Tablespoons coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil or palm shortening
  • 3 Tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 pinches sea salt
  • optional: line bottom of pie pan with a circle of parchment paper or grease pan with a little coconut oil.

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325*F.
  2. Mix pie crust ingredients together in a mixing bowl.
  3. I recommend lining a pie pan with a cut out circle of parchment paper. You can also try using some coconut oil to grease the pie pan.
  4. Using your hands press the pie crust dough into the pie pan, and work it until its nice and even.
  5. Par-bake pie crust at 325*F for 10 minutes.
  6. Peel persimmons, if there are any seeds remove them.
  7. Blend persimmons into a puree using a high speed blender or food processor.
  8. Add in remaining pie filling ingredients and blend.
  9. Pour into par-baked pie crust.
  10. Bake pie at 325*F for 25 to 30 minutes. Let cool before slicing.
  11. I love to top it with my recipe for vegan coconut whip.

Recipe Notes

*AIP Notes: Omit Vanilla and Pie Spice for full AIP. Feel free to use any pie crust you’d like with this recipe. I tried to make a starch-free, nut-free, egg-free crust and did not have much luck, though check back in the future and I hope to come up with one someday!
For those of you looking for a nut-free pie crust check out these AIP pie crusts from: Living the Crunchy Life AIP Pie CrustBeyond the Bite AIP Pie CrustVibrant Life Amy Wife AIP Pie Crust. And here is a nut free/starch free pie crust I haven’t yet tried made with from The Coconut Mama
