Paleo Pastry

17 07 2012

I had an urge to make a pie for dinner tonight so had a bit of a search for different ways I could do this without white flour and butter…. I found a few recipes and this is what I came up with. Mine was a bit crumbly this time but I think I overworked the pastry. You could definitely leave out the savoury spices, add some cinnamon and use it as a sweet pastry dough.

200g Almond Meal (I used 100g flaxseed and 100g almond meal)
2 Eggs
1/2 Tablespoon Coconut Oil
Pinch of salt, onion powder, garlic powder & any other herbs you like.

Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl until the form a nice ‘dough’. Try not to overmix. Roll out on a lightly floured board into a circle 1/8 inch thick and one inch larger than the diameter of the top of the pie pan. (I roll between two pieces of non-stick baking paper to help handling and cleaning up then I strip off one side of the waxed paper transport it to the pie pan and press it in). trim to the edge of the pie pan. Prick with a fork. Bake at 220C for 12 – 15 minutes or until a golden brown.

This is what it looked like as the lid on my Fish Pie
