One of my biggest baking challenges was how to make keto pie crust that tasted good and I was able to roll out.

I tried a few recipes for a keto pie crust you could press in and wasn’t thrilled with the results.

It wasn’t until I discovered hazelnut flour that I had a keto pie crust result that made me happy!

Discovering this magical flour…. which really isn’t a flour… was critical to making this pie crust work.

What is hazelnut flour?

It’s finely ground flour made from the nut… hazelnuts.

It’s got a really delicious flavor but is pretty expensive.

Therefore, I combined it with coconut flour and tiger nut flour.

  1. Gather your ingredients & supplies

    1 Cup Hazelnut Flour 112 g
    ¼ Cup Coconut Flour 1 oz
    ½ Cup Tiger Nut Flour 1 oz
    3 Tbsp Bocha Sweet optional
    ½ Cup Butter cold, sliced

    Use pulse to process until mixture resembles wet sand.
    Add egg and pulse together until combined.
    Place in parchment paper (or plastic wrap) shaped into a circular round.
    Refrigerate for 30 minutes to one hour.

  3. For a pie you’ll bake:

    If you’re going to make a baked pie (like…the entire pie needs baked), then bake the crust alone with a pie crust shield at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.
    Then allow the crust to cool while you assemble the filling.

  4. For a no-bake pie:

    Now, if you’re making a no-bake pie then you’ll need to completely bake this keto pie crust.
    So, bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.

I strongly encourage you to use a pie crust shield to make sure the edges don’t over bake.

Why Do I Need A Pie Crust Shield?

These high fat flours tend to brown faster and the pie crust shield will save your crust edges from burning. It’s totally worth the small investment if you don’t already have a pie crust shield!

  1. looks great! yes a bit $$$! imagine the cost making a top crust keto pie!!YIKES! never heard of tiger nuts? recently came across something called chick pea flour? wonder if it has keto macros??

      Chickpeas are classified as a legume, so they aren’t a keto ingredient. However, they are fantastic for people who are gluten-free/grain-free 🙂
