I love making gluten free crusts with almond flour. This gluten free flour is super easy to use, high in heart healthy protein and fats, and of course delicious.

If you wish to experiment and try to make a gluten free pie crust out of this tart crust, feel free. Just be sure to stop back by and let us know how it works.

I am anticipating that I will receive a lot of questions about substituting the egg in this crust recipe; to this I answer: not sure. Again, if you find an adaptation or substitution that works in this gluten free pie crust recipe please let us know how it goes. As for me, I’m very happy with how this turned out as it is a wonderful Paleo tart crust.

2 cups blanched almond flour
½ teaspoon celtic sea salt
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 egg


  1. Place flour and salt in food processor and pulse briefly
  2. Add coconut oil and egg and pulse until mixture forms a ball
  3. Press dough into a 9-inch metal tart pan
  4. Place pie filling of your choice in crust
  5. Bake pie as directed per pie recipe

The above is a brand new tart crust recipe. I experimented with it numerous times until I was entirely happy with the outcome. In my tests, I made it with a pecan pie filling. What will you fill your tart crust with?

    Just wondering: if this is for a tart, how much would we need to increase the ingredients for an actual full sized pie? Thank you. I am excited to try this one!
