Coconut Nut- Free Crust

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

I am always desiring recipes that don’t include nuts.  I love nuts and so do most of my friends and family.  But I do have a few close ones that don’t tolerate them to well,  so it has become my mission to find or create new recipes that they too can eat and enjoy.   Today, I came up with this recipe based on what I had in the pantry.

Raw crusts are amazing and so different from the standard cooked pastry crusts.  You can use a raw crust as just that, a crust or you can use it as a topping on a desserts, in between layers in a parfait or yogurt.  Heck, you could even sprinkle it on a salad.

Ingredients for Nut- Free Crust!

  • 2 cups coconut flakes, unsweetened
  • 10 Mejool dates, pitted
  • 3 Tbsp raw cold pressed coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup flax meal (ground flax seeds)
  • 1 tsp ground  cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt

Preparation:

  1. In your food process, blend all the ingredients together until it sticks together when you press it between your fingers.
  2. In the Springform pan press your crust batter into the bottom and press firmly.
  3. Set aside while you make your fillings.

    Hey Amie,

    I love your site, it is gorgeously done, and I know you hear that I lot! I am a fellow raw food chef coming out with a site soon, and I will be doing a lot of referencing to you :). I wanted to share a nut-free crust with you. Feel free to post it if you like it! I like to do berry swirl/lemon/vanilla pies with it mostly, but it is a pretty versatile crust.

    1 1/3 Cup sunflower seeds
    1/3 Cup coconut nectar* or other liquid sweetener
    2 Tbsp goji berries (optional)
    1/3 Cup ground flax
    1/3 Cup coconut flakes
    2 Tbsp coconut oil
    3/4 tsp vanilla powder or 1 tsp liquid (optional)
    pinch salt (optional)
    5 drops liquid stevia or more to taste

    Pulse and Combine until sticky and you’re done. I like to leave the sunflower seeds looking pretty crushed up, but not ground completely–it looks and tastes great that way.

    *If using dates, I use 1 Cup, but it will have to be processed for longer and have a much different texture (as the sunflower seeds will turn into meal) than the coconut nectar, but will still taste good!
