Have you ever run to the grocery store to buy a gluten free, no-bake crust, and either you can’t find any, or the few crusts left on the shelf are broken? Now you can easily make your homemade gluten free no-bake crust and avoid the problems!

The shredded coconut flakes infuse the crust with a warm, tropical flavor that adds a unique twist to your pie. The crust’s crunchy yet slightly crumbly texture works beautifully with smooth, custardy pie fillings. You can also use this pie crust for almond crust tart recipes! I used it to make this Gluten Free Apple Tart.

Ingredient Notes:

  • Shredded Coconut – Use unsweetened coconut. You can use any shred size, but medium shreds work better than the tiny shred varieties.
  • Almond Flour – You can use regular or blanched almond flour. I like this almond flour more than almond meal, but both will work.
  • Oil – I used coconut oil, but canola oil and other light oils work well.
  • Honey or Agave Nectar – This is used to sweeten the crust and add a little stickiness so the crust holds together.

Tips For Sucess

1. Let the crust sit for 15-30 minutes before pouring a crust into it. This allows the melted butter to soften and blend in the almond flour and coconut.
2. If you prefer less texture, add the almond flour and coconut to a food processor and pulse for a few seconds to chop up the coconut.

Step-By-Step Photos and Directions:

Step 3: Add the crust to a greased 9-inch pie pan. Don’t forget, this almond flour tart crust can be used in a tart pan!

Step 4: Press the crust down firmly into the pie pan with the bottom of a small glass or a large spoon. Spread the crust mixture to ensure the crust is evenly disbursed.

Step 5: Chill the crust for 20-30 minutes.

Step 6: Add a pie filling and chill. There are some tasty options below.
