Garbanzo Bean Pie Crust
Almost all the foods you love exist in a healthier variant, trust me! I bring you a recipe for an excellent alternative - a savory Garbanzo Bean Pie Crust! It is full of protein and fiber, low-carb, and gluten-free! Excellent for a quiche! See notes for sweet pie amendments.
Garbanzo Bean Crust
- 1 cup Garbanzo bean flour
- 1/2 cup almond flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 tsp garlic powder
Preheat oven to 375. Spray pie pan with oil and set aside.
In a small bowl, mix all garbanzo bean crust ingredients.
Press crust into pie pan, pressing up along edges an inch or two. Press around the pan until there is a uniform thickness of about a quarter inch.
Put the pie crust in the oven and bake for 15 minutes. Crust should be cooked and golden brown.
* I recommend my Tuscan Quiche recipe with this pie crust!
* This pie crust was made and tested with a quiche. I have not yet tried it with a sweet pie. I believe this would also be good with pie if you switch the olive oil for coconut oil, remove the garlic and pepper, and half the salt. Comment if you've tried this so we can know if this application works!
