Happy Pi Day!


Pi Day is really just an excuse to eat copious amounts of pie (and usually I do). This year, however I went the healthy route with this gluten-free, vegan veggie pie. Although, I’m not gluten free or vegan, healthy meals are made healthier when avoiding gluten and dairy. Therefore I went for a gluten-free crust and although it wasn’t as buttery and flaky as my traditional crust, it did the job. (The recipe for my traditional crust is below, as well).

Crust ingredients…

Pie ingredients…

So first I took the oats and blended it with salt in the food processor until it was super fine.

I melted the coconut oil in the microwave until it was melted completely. I took the oats and mixed in the chives and then slowly added the coconut oil and a little water. (I added chives to the crust for some flavor, you acn add any fresh herbs you desire).

Then I pressed the mixture into my pie pan (no need to grease the pan) and baked it for about 10 minutes at 350 degrees.
