I have been wanting to have a gluten-free pie crust that I could make an apple pie with that would still be on plan with Trim Healthy Mama. I needed to figure out a way to make a pie crust that wouldn’t have too much fat so that I could keep it in a “E” setting.

When I learned that sprouted flours were on plan with Trim Healthy Mama my thoughts turned to pie crust. I started looking online for different ingredients that I could replace the fat that is normally found in a crust and found the perfect one! Pumpkin.  Pumpkin is my new “secret” weapon when it comes to baking.

This gluten-free pie crust is not the your normal flaky crust that you might be used to, instead it is it’s own type of crust. It has a nice, full flavor and has a good, firm texture. If you are the type that might want to eat right out of the pie pan, with this crust you can actually pick a piece of pie up and eat it from your hand. (I might have tested that for you.)

I used a gluten-free sprouted flour blend in this recipe that I ordered from To Your Health Sprouted Flour Co. For gluten-free flours I think that their prices are very reasonable. We have been eating mostly grain free for a few years now and I’m really excited to be able to use gluten-free sprouted flour as it is easier to digest once it’s sprouted.

This gluten-free pie crust will go perfectly with my gluten-free apple pie recipe.
