Gluten-Free Pie Crust Recipe

Whether or not the holidays are around the corner, I like to prepare my kitchen for all the healthy baking and cooking my wife and I will be doing. And in this case, I’m talking about a gluten-free pie crust. I’ve created an easy, healthy and gluten-free version of a traditional pie crust.

You might be thinking, can one even make a gluten-free pie crust? This pie crust recipe doesn’t require chilling any butter or messing with gluten-filled wheat flour.

I’ve upgraded the ingredients to include the incredibly versatile cassava flour (one of the best gluten-free flours), grass-fed butter, date sugar (one of my preferred natural sweeteners) and a pastured egg. My pie crust with cassava flour is a great replacement for a wheat or white flour crust, and you only need a hand mixer or a fork with a strong arms to get this whipped up!

Key Ingredients

I chose cassava flour for this recipe because it has many amazing properties and benefits. Cassava flour is completely gluten-free, grain-free and nut-free. It can replace wheat flour in many recipes and is neutral in flavor.

Cassava flour comes from the yucca root and is considered to be a whole food, coming from the entire plant, as opposed to tapioca flour, which is the bleached and extracted starch from the yucca root. The yucca root is a staple for millions of people in developing countries since it is high in carbohydrates and drought-resistant.

I know you’ve heard me talk about the many benefits of grass-fed butter, so I won’t repeat myself too much. Grass-fed butter is far superior than conventional butter and especially margarine, since it contains many vitamins, minerals, healthy fatty acids and a balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fats. Good news for my dairy-free or dairy sensitive readers: You can alternatively use coconut oil in this pie crust with cassava flour with great results!

Date sugar was an easy choice for sweetening up this gluten-free pie crust. You can also swap it out for coconut sugar or any other healthy granulated sweetener that isn’t refined or artificial.

Adding a pastured egg helps bind the crust, as well as providing some more omega-3 fatty acids from the yolk. You know how much I love benefit-rich eggs from chickens that are pasture-raised.

How to Make a Gluten-Free Pie Crust

First, you will want to preheat your oven to 350 F.  You can use either a pie pan, an 8×8 baking dish or a 9×13 baking dish. In a large mixing bowl, add in butter that is room temperature along with date sugar. Mix until creamy. Add in the egg and continue mixing.

Slowly add in cassava flour a little at a time, until it is well combined. Press your crust mixture into your baking dish until it completely covers the bottom and goes up the sides of the dish.

Note: the pie crust will be thicker in a pie pan and 8×8 dish, but will still bake through.

Partially bake your pie crust with cassava flour for 15 minutes, remove from the oven and then fill with whatever pie filling you made.
