Preparation

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
