Can't eat nuts? This is a great keto pie crust for those of you who are nut-free. This basic pie crust recipe is perfect for sweet pies and tarts such as these Low-carb Cranberry Curd Tarts, savoury pies like this Low-Carb Easter Torta Pasqualina Pie and quiches including this Low-Carb Broccoli Cheese Quiche.

How to Make Nut-Free Keto Pie Crust

It's easy to make this nut-free low-carb pie crust in just a few minutes using 5 common ingredients:

  • coconut flour
  • flax meal
  • sea salt
  • butter
  • eggs

Simply combine all the dry ingredients, and then add the wet ingredients and then form into a sticky dough. If you're using a large pie crust, it's better to use baking beans — like I did in this keto pie crust recipe — to prevent the dough from forming air bubbles on top. You won't need them if you're making small pie crusts. You can then bake the crust with or without your preferred low-carb filling.

Just like my Flakey Keto Pie Crust, this low-carb pie crust is neutral in taste so it will work well with both sweet and savoury pie fillings. It's sturdier and not as flaky as the one made with almond flour but it's still delicious. Check out my this recipe for sweet, savoury and even no-bake pie filling ideas!

Ingredients (makes 1 pie crust, 8 servings)


  1. Preheat the oven to 160 °C/ 320 °F (fan assisted), or 180 °C/ 355 °F (conventional). In a bowl, mix the coconut flour, flax meal and a pinch of salt. Nut-Free Keto Pie Crust
  2. Add softened butter (or ghee or coconut oil) and eggs, and use a spoon or your hand to mix until thick dough is formed. Nut-Free Keto Pie Crust
  3. Transfer into a greased 9-inch (23 cm) tart pan, or into 8 individual 4-inch (10 cm) pans, or into 4 individual 5-inch pans. (Tip: It's best if you use non stick pie pans with removable bottoms. If using a large pie pan, line the bottom with a piece of 9-inch (23 cm) round parchment paper.)
  4. Using your hand or a small roller, press the dough down the bottom and up the sides to create an edge. If you're using a large pie crust, it's better to use baking beans to weigh the dough down and prevent air bubbles from forming. (Note: Check the tips in the recipe for fillings.)

  5. Place in a baking tray and transfer into the oven. Bake for 8 to 12 minutes, depending on the preferred browning, turning the tray halfway to ensure even cooking. Nut-Free Keto Pie Crust
  6. Remove the tray from the oven and place on a cooling rack. When cool, remove from the pie pans. If needed, you can use a sharp knife to help gently release the pie crusts. Nut-Free Keto Pie Crust
  7. Store at room temperature in a covered container for up to 3 days, in the fridge for up to 2 weeks, or in the freezer for up to 3 months. Nut-Free Keto Pie Crust

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.
