How to Bake Gluten Free Tiger Nuts Pie Crust!
The Holidays are quickly approaching & having a Gluten Free Tiger Nut Pie Crust in your repertoire is an asset!
Many pie crust recipes call for crumbs of different varieties, except we’re using ground tiger nuts in this instance.
Creating a pressed pie crust quite a bit quicker & easier than creating a pastry pie crust, and just as delicious!
Gluten Free Tiger Nut Pie Crust:
For this recipe, we’ve used Organic Tiger Nuts Flour. It has a similar consistency to that of using crumbs for a pressed pie crust, with a fabulous slightly sweet flavor & slightly reminiscent of coconut, to me.

However, you can use the leftovers of tiger nut meal from making tiger nuts milk, in the exact same measurement as the ground flour.
- Note: If your pie plate is larger than mine, you may need to use more of the flour or meal, as necessary.

Tiger nuts aren’t nuts at all – they are little tubers that grow under the ground, like potatoes or carrots do – making them perfect for those with nut allergies. Not only that, tiger nuts are full of vitamins & minerals, and are perfect for most diets.
These tiny tubers are not only gluten free, but dairy free & cholesterol free, as well as being organic, non GMO, vegetarian & vegan.
We are using this pie crust for a Blueberry Pie with Gluten Free Tiger Nut Pie Crust.

- Note: Add more melted butter, 1 tbsp at a time, as necessary to reach a wet sand consistency with mixture.
- Note: Test mixture by grabbing a handful & squeezing it, to pack it. If mixture sticks together, it is ready.
- Firmly & evenly, press mixture into bottom & up the sides of pie plate, to form a crust.
- If par-baking your crust, depending on the type of pie you are making, bake for 8 – 10 minutes, or until golden.
- Cool completely, before filling, if you have par-baked the crust.
