Lets be honest with the slightly colder weather a good old hearty meal is what makes us feel warm and fuzzy. The only problem is that warm and fuzzy usually means high carb and high calories ? Just a couple of dishes like this added to your diet every week can cause that horrible winter weight gain ?
Here is a super easy recipe for you to try out this weekend. A plus is that there are no expensive ingredients and it is quick and easy. You can also choose if you would like your pie to be sweet or savoury or both ?
Here we go….
COCONUT FLOUR PIE CRUST
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/4 Tsp sea salt
3/4 Cup coconut flour
1-3 Tbs honey
2 tbs arrow root powder (Dischem) Arrow root powder is a great addition when baking with coconut flour. Coconut flour tends to be quite dense and heavy and the arrow root makes it far lighter and more crispy. This simple ingredient really changes
Preheat oven to 200
In a medium bowl beat coconut oil, eggs, honey and salt together with a fork.
Then add coconut flour and arrow root powder. Stir until dough holds together.
Gather the dough into a ball, then pat into a 20cm pan after spraying with cooking spray.
Prick the dough with a fork.
Bake for 8-10 minutes or until lightly brown. Let cool
If you would like to make a savory dish then leave out the honey.
The filling ideas are endless just remember to keep it sugar free.
If you have any cool ideas please send them to me so I can test them out too.
Have a fabulous Saturday?
