Coconut Pie Crust or Coconut Tart Crust

In 15 minutes you can have a ready to go fully-baked toasted pie crust with this paleo recipe I am sharing with you today. My recipe gives you two options: Coconut Pie Crust or Coconut Tart Crust to then use with a filling of your choice. You can use any number of mine as well such as this banana recipe, or you can use the apple tarts filling included in this recipe. You could also get a bit more creative and fill the crust with paleo ice cream – peach mango, vanilla or chocolate!

Coconut Tarts or Pie Crusts

Someone online asked me if I had a nut-free option for a pie crust and to be honest, this recipe can be altered by omitting the almond flour if you have nut allergies and simply replacing it with a bit more shredded coconut. The almond flour does tend to absorb and help hold the baked shell together though. Let me know how this recipe works out for you and whether you use the almond flour or not.

Happy holidays.
