Gluten Free Chocolate Quinoa Pie Crust

Gluten Free Chocolate Quinoa Pie Crust

I claimed a while back that I don’t like Pie Crust. Apparently I’ve been on a mission to change my own mind ever since. This brilliant creation has been percolating for quite some time – ever since I made the crunchy chocolatey wafers for my Vegan Chocolate Ice Cream Sandwiches as a matter of fact.

You see, that Chocolate Wafer recipe was a massive make-over from an original butter/white flour/sugar laden one, and as such I experimented with spelt flour, quinoa flour and buckwheat to find the right combination – there were lots of wafers floating around…

Ingredients

  • 3/4 c quinoa flour
  • 1/3 c cocoa powder
  • 1/3 c coconut or rapadura sugar
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • scant 1/4 tsp baking powder
