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!

Web Chef Review: Organic Tiger Nuts Flour - cookingwithkimberly.com

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.
