Shortbread Pecan Pie Crust
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.Advertisement
Pulse pecans in a food processor until finely ground. Add oat flour and salt and pulse until combined. With the motor running, drizzle in coconut oil and maple syrup; blend until the mixture looks like crumbly dough. Transfer to a 9-inch glass or ceramic deep-dish pie pan and press evenly into the bottom and almost all the way up the sides.
Bake the crust until set but not browned, 12 to 14 minutes.
Tip: People with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity should use oat flour that is labeled "gluten-free," as oats are often cross-contaminated with wheat and barley.
