Who doesn’t like pie?

Pie is American.

Any kind of pie.

  • Chocolate pie.
  • Apple pie.
  • Cherry pie.
  • Pumpkin pie.
  • Peppermint pie.
  • Floor pie.

Wait…..what?

Anyhow, my point is that if you meet someone who doesn’t like pie, I would keep an eye on them. You simply can’t trust someone who doesn’t like pie.

When you are following a grain-free or paleo diet, however, finding pie can be a bit of a challenge.

But I have great news for you – YOU DON’T HAVE TO GO PIELESS.

The perfect grain-free or paleo pie can be had!

And I have the perfect crust for your perfect pie.

But before I tell you how to make the crust, I have collected 16 indulgent grain-free and paleo pies from across the web that I can’t wait to try in this crust. You can see them in the slideshow above.

Now, you just need to make the crust and decide which pie you want to make first.

Author:
Ingredients
  • ½ cup raw almonds (soaked and dried)
  • ¾ cups pitted dates
  • ½ tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 4 cup shredded coconut
  • dash of salt
Instructions
  1. Place all the ingredients into food processor or high powered blender.
  2. Blend until solid and slightly sticky. It will become a large lump with most of it stuck together.
  3. Grease a pie pan with butter and then coat lightly with almond flour. Make sure you go all the way up the sides too.
  4. Place the date mixture into the pie pan and begin pressing it across and around the pan. You can use wax paper or more almond flour to keep your fingers from sticking.
  5. Continue pressing until the mixture fills the pie pan like a crust. Trim any extra (although you likely won't have any). You can eat the extra, it's good!
  6. Chill until ready to add your filling.

    Yes! I NEED the apple one. It’s a shame my Dutch husband can’t eat Dutch Apple Pie!

    Thank you for this! I have been wanting to make pie but assumed I couldn’t because my husband is grain-free {&I’m slowly transitioning}. Now I can’t wait to make one!

    That sounds like the MOST simple grain-free pie crust recipe! I can’t wait to make it now :)

    I have never tried cooking with a grain free crust before but yours looks really good! As do the rest of those pies – yum!

    I’m an apple or blueberry pie kind of girl. I like fruits in my pies!

    Just because it’s paleo doesn’t mean it has to be yucky, right? Those pies look awesome whether or not you’re on a paleo diet. Great idea for a roundup!

    These look terrific! I don’t make standard pie crust very often anyway… love it, but it’s mighty chubbifying.

    Right now I’m craving banana creme pie.

    I’ve never really thought about a grain-free crust before, I would love to try it, especially that chocolate banana cream pie. YUM!

  • Reply Anne 02/28/2014 at 8:53 pm

    Chocolate Banana Cream pie sounds good to me, although I might leave off the bacon!
