This coconut flour pie crust recipe is one of the easiest pie crusts I’ve ever made. The ingredients come together fast and the crust bakes up beautifully!

You can use butter or coconut oil in this recipe and if you’re using this crust for a savory dish leave out the sweetener. I’ve used this crust to make quiche, chicken pot pie, coconut cream pie and pumpkin pie. It’s turned out with every pie I’ve made! If you’re cooking a pie for a long time I suggest covering the edges of the pie with foil or a pie crust cover to prevent burning.

    So how does this compare texture-wise to a white flour crust? It looks good, and I’m sure I would like it. But I’m wondering if it would be considered “weird” by those who are used to regular wheat flour pie crusts. Does it crisp up a bit, or does it stay soft/dry/cakey? Thanks!

      It’s a softer crust with a sweet coconut flavor. Must be a coconut lover to enjoy this! :)

    Can I use this for a pumpkin pie? I mean, can I pour pie mix into a raw shell and bake the crust along with the filling?

      Did anyone find a egg replacement for this recipe yet? I normally use the egg replacer EnerG or chia seeds. Not sure how that would work on a pie crust though

    Canyou use this crust to cover a pie (Apple pie)

      Yes, you can use this crust to cover an apple pie, I just made one yesterday. You must put the ball of dough onto parchment paper then pat out with your fingers to fit the pie dish. Tricky but possible, flip the flattened dough onto the top of your apple filling. You can still flute the edges. I kept foil over the entire pie and it browned up nicely and did not burn.

    My plans are to make this along with my pumpkin pie. What are your suggestions on a topping for the pie? I looked at every canister/container of whipped cream at the store and each had high fructose corn syrup which I refuse to let myself and my son consume. My husband is a different story, the man eats any and everything. I did buy some heavy whipping cream from my local organic market though.

      Ashley why buy pre made whip cream you are already making the leap to something healthier by a coconut flour crust go to the dairy isle of you local market they will have a carton from 4oz to a pint of whipping cream. Freeze your bowl pour the whipping cream in the cold bowl and mix on high until stiff peaks form I add a tablespoon of organic maple syrup to sweeten mine but you can use any sweetener you like and you will have whipped cream with no high fructose corn syrup.

        Ashley, coconut cream whips beautifully to top pies. Either refrigerate full fat coconut milk, then scoop off the cream that rose to the top, or buy actual coconut cream and whip it up with a little vanilla and honey. Don’t over whip. My crew doesn’t know the difference. I buy Arroy-D coconut milk (which has a high cream percentage) or their actual coconut cream – both on amazon. I shy away from canned coconut milk and actually all canned foods bc of the chemicals lining the cans like BPA.

      Ashley, Ive seen recipes for a coconut milk whipped cream. Here is a link where I seen it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xjpN9cjtG7w What I would do a bit different though is If you get a can of coconut milk, put it in the fridge for a few hours so its real cold. Open the can and take out just the solids, use the liquid for something else, a smoothie or something. Put the solids in a chilled bowl and whip it like you would heavy cream with a touch of vanilla and a little sugar if you want it sweet. The best brand I found with a lot of solids and contains just two ingredients is Golden Star I buy at SuperWalmart for like 1.50 a can. I hope this helps.

      Debbie,
      I found this recipe over the thanksgiving holiday. I am also type 2. I just subed about 1/2 to 1 tsp. of Stevia Glycerite for the 3Tbl honey and it came out great.
      I used this crust to make some fruit tarts in some ramekins.
      I used the Stevia Glycerite mainly because I had some on hand and because it has a consistency closer to honey.
      In case you don’t know Stevia glycerite, is a solution made up of stevia dissolved in vegetable glycerine. The version I have is from the NOW brand.

    Will this roll out and carry to top an apple, cherry, or other covered pie? I have problems with gluten-free pie crusts never making it to cover a pie. It looks terrible, tastes good though.

      This dough doesn’t roll out so I don’t think it’ll work for what you’re looking for.

        Coconut Mama (et. al.),
        Found this recipe over the holiday and while experimenting with it I actually did roll it out with fair success…. However I have a marble rolling pin which I chilled before use and rolled onto wax paper instead of flour cloth (I did dust the paper with coconut flour before rolling). Granted I couldn’t pick it up like a regular flour dough crust, but i was able to transfer the crust to the pie using the wax paper and then using a long thin knife to aid in sliding the crust off the paper onto the pie. Your mileage may vary.

        Coconut Mama, Thx much for posting this recipe. I got a lot of mileage out of it this Thanksgiving (another thing to be thankful for :-) ).

      Never mind saw the post above mine .that is a bummer, but may still do a crisp top with this bottom if you can bake it twice?

        Yes! you can bake it twice, she does in her pumpkin pie recipe. It comes out very sturdy, too, I’m trying it with quiche next. :)

    Can you omit the honey from the recipe?
    Does the honey do anything to help hold the crust together?

      I was wondering the same thing. Do you have to use to honey or can you omit it cause I cant have any source of sugar except stevia due to candida overgrowth

    How did you flute the edges of your crust? My dough came out so soft (even adding 1/4 cup more of coconut flour and refridgerating for an hour) that I had to smear it into the pie dish with a spatula. Any ideas what went wrong?

    I needed a crust for a paleo pumpkin pie and this was perfect! Super easy to put together. So many recipes were made with almond flour and that is very expensive and hard to find in Australia. My pie is cooling now, can’t wait to try it :)

    Do you melt the coconut oil or butter? Or just room temp which is solid (oil)?

    In Australia we love meat pies – because we are LCHF people have been making the pie crust with almond flour but it is so high in calories and carbs – can we use coconut flour instead.
    We roll our almond flour on plastic rap and then position it in the pie maker so could do similar with coconut flour we think

    Tried this tonight for a chicken and spring veggie quiche. It held up nicely, but felt it was too sweet (Pretty strong coconut flavor and I didn’t add the honey!) for a savory pie. Would pair awesome with chocolate creme or key lime pies! We have an abundance of lemons, so I’m thinking a lemon meringue is in my future.

    i used this pie crust recipe for a blueberry pie, the crust got extremely brown not burnt but looked like a chocolate pie crust what is the trick of baking fruit pies but not getting. Brown crust thanks

    I was beyond excited to find this grain free crust. I made it for a blueberry pie on 2 consecutive days using coconut oil instead of butter both times.

    After the prebake, the crust looked good but after the second bake of nearly an hour with the filling, the entire crust overbrowned. It looked burnt but did not taste that way. Actually, it tasted quite good and the crust was substantial enough to hold the filling.

    Both times I used a glass pie plate so this might have something to do with the burning. I tried once using a cookie sheet to hold the plate and once without. It made no difference. Also covering edges in foil made no difference either.

    I am going to try this next time with a tin plate to see if I can get a better result. Other thsn that, this crust is so easy to make and the dough comes together very well.

    I love this recipe! It’s a success every time I bake it, and it’s so versatile. I’ve used it for a crust on a cheesecake, baked it with fruit on top for a cobbler, and tonight I baked it and crumbled it on top of coconut milk ice cream. It was so delicious!!! The combo was almost like a vanilla sandwich cookie. It definitely appeased the vicious seeet tooth I had today!!
