After we found out about my daughter's allergy to nuts, I would often think about the raw pies that I would make with a wonderful nut crust (usually cashews and pine nuts). I thought to myself, there must be a way to make a crust without nuts. I could probably use sunflower and pumpkin seeds. But would it be good?
Since I originally soaked 1 cup of each of the seeds, I ended up making two pie crusts. I decided to split the recipe for my blog since not everyone needs to make two pie crusts at once.
I got the idea to use the liquified coconut oil in the pie from Kelly at the Spunky Coconut. You can find her blog link on my blog roll. She has some really great recipes. And the coconut oil worked great, my pie was smooth and firm and delicious. I can't wait to make another.
