For those of you who’ve never made your own Paleo pie crust before, this recipe is a cinch to make. It includes plenty of gluten-free ingredients (like coconut flour and tapioca starch) and is great for using with both sweet and savory pie fillings. Prepare it ahead of time and keep this recipe handy whenever you need a quick go-to crust.
To get started, preheat the oven to 350°F and grease a pie pan with coconut oil. You’ll want to make sure the pan has a removable bottom so that it’s easier to remove after baking.

Next, place the eggs and melted coconut oil in a large mixing bowl and whisk well to combine. Add the coconut flour and tapioca starch to the mixing bowl and stir together with a wooden spoon. You’ll want the dough to be easy to handle and not too sticky. If you find the dough is too wet, simply add one additional tablespoon of tapioca starch at a time and continue mixing.
Then, roll the dough into a diameter that’s slightly larger than the base of your pie pan (about 1/8-inch thick). Transfer the dough to the prepared pan and press it down to completely cover the bottom and sides of the pan. Make sure there are no air gaps before placing it into the oven to bake for 20 minutes. When the crust becomes golden brown, remove and let it cool in the pan.
Once the crust is completely cooled, prepare it with your favorite pie filling and enjoy!
Tip: You can swap out the coconut oil for olive oil or avocado oil in the same amounts if you prefer the taste to be more savory than sweet.
