Grain Free Pie Crust

This grain free pie crust uses a combination of tapioca flour and cassava flour. Both of these flours are derived from the cassava root. Tapioca flour is more processed than cassava flour.

The result is a nice, flaky and hearty pie crust with fantastic flavor. I've used this crust in an apple pie I made. Because you asked, I'll include the recipe I used for the filling at the bottom of this post!

While this is not a Keto or low carb pie crust-- it is a grain free pie crust. Perfect for those who avoid grain, gluten and added sugars!

You can use this crust to make everything from lemon meringue pie to pumpkin pie, apple pie, pecan pie or berry pies.

You can use this as a quiche crust as well, simply omit the sweetener.

Ingredients

For a Double Crust:

For a Single Crust:

Instructions

  • Combine the flours and salt and sugar and cut in the cold unsalted butter either by hand or with a food processor.
  • Then add your egg and blend to combine, adding water to get to the right consistency. The dough should be firm and not sticky--but also not crumble when you handle it.

Notes

The video shows quite a few tricks to making this pie crust. One HUGE tip is not to get discouraged if it falls apart! I show you how to fix it and still get a beautiful result. You'll also see me add a little water before I roll out the top pie crust because it's a bit dry. This is the trick to preventing it from falling apart.
I've used a food processor to pull this recipe together quickly. You could also cut the butter in by hand and not use a food processor at all. The choice is entirely yours.
Although this isn't really an apple pie recipe-- I'll include my recipe for sugar free (no sugar added) apple pie filling using fresh apples! I use just a touch of molasses because I love molasses! You can substitute any sugar substitute if you don't care for molasses flavor.

They work like this: You choose to click on an affiliate link on my website and make a purchase. Depending on my relationship with that company you just purchased from–I earn either a small percentage or a fixed amount for “referring” you to the company.

I only refer you to products and brands that I have used in the past or are currently using and that I like the quality of. In some cases, products are discontinued and I find a substitution. This is usually only for kitchen gadgets but sometimes companies stop making ingredients too!
