What You Need
How to make your oat crust
It's so easy!
Start by blending the oats in a blender two minutes until a flour forms then stirring the flour, sugar and salt together in a bowl. Next make a well in the bowl, add the olive oil and stir until crumbly. Then add the water until the dough becomes moist.
How to store and cook your healthy pie shell
Store the pie shell in the refrigerator wrapped in plastic wrap or you can press evenly into a pie pan and store it like that until you're ready to bake it.
You can also bake the homemade pie crust, let it cool to room temperature then store in the refrigerator. I've done either method and both work fine. This really is a no fuss crust!

Healthy Low Calorie Pie Crust
- Prepare a 9-inch pie dish by greasing with olive oil.
- Blend the oats in a blender or food processor 2-3 minutes until it becomes a flour mixture.
- Transfer blended oats to a mixing bowl and stir with sugar and salt to combine.
- Make a well in the center of the mixture, add olive oil and stir until crumbly. Add 4 tablespoons of water, one tablespoon at time to the mixture, while stirring until the dough becomes slightly moist and sticky.
- The batter may still fall apart, but will stick together easily if you pinch it together. If it doesn't, add 1-2 tablespoons of water more.
- Press the dough into the prepared pie dish. Press it flat and even across the bottom and up the sides.
- You can either 1) store the unbaked pie shell in the refrigerator in the pan until you're ready to bake a pie or 2) bake it at 375 F for 10 minutes until golden brown. If you bake it ahead of time, you can bake a pie in it after it cools or store the pie crust in the refrigerator up to 10 days until you make a pie.
- I haven't tried freezing the dough, but I suspect you could. If you try that, please leave a comment below. This helps others!
