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!


The Perfect Keto Pie Crust with Hazelnut Flour


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.

What Substitutions Will Work?


Keto Sweetener Substitutions

If you haven't already tried Bocha Sweet, I highly recommend you do.

It's a superfood alternative sweetener made from a Japanese pumpkin called the Kabocha pumpkin.

Most alternative sweeteners will work in this recipe. You can use Monk Fruit Sweetener, Xylitol or a blend like Swerve.

You could also use liquid stevia to sweeten the keto pie crust!

How To Make Keto Pie Crust with Hazelnut Flour

Instructions:

  1. Combine hazelnut flour, coconut flour, tiger nut flour, bocha sweet and sliced cold butter in food processor.Keto Pie Crust with Hazelnut Flour ingredients 2
  2. Use “pulse” on your food processor and pulse until mixture resembles wet sand.
  3. Next, add the egg and pulse together until combined. The result should be a little sticky and have some chunks of butter still visible. (Though not large chunks)
  4. Place the keto pie crust dough in parchment paper (or plastic wrap) and mold it until it's shaped into a circular round.
  5. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to one hour.
  6. Remove from fridge and roll crust out between two clean sheets of parchment paper.
  7. Place a towel under the bottom sheet of parchment paper if the paper is sliding around on your kitchen counter.
  8. I love using parchment paper for rolling out everything because my rolling pin stays clean!
  9. Use the parchment paper to move the rolled crust to the pie plate.
  10. The crust may break as you place it into the pie plate… ignore the natural frustration you'll feel 😉 and just patch the keto pie crust together like I show in the video tutorial.
  11. Mold the edges to your liking.
  12. Now, your pie crust is ready to fill and bake!
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.

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??

    1. Author

      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 🙂
