Ingredients

  • 1 cup almonds raw, with skin
  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • pinch kosher or sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon optional
  • 1/4 cup coconut palm sugar
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil melted, optional pure butter

Instructions

  • Preheat oven 350 degrees.
  • In a food processor or chopping device, add almonds, oats, salt, and cinnamon. Pulse until a fine crumb-like consistency, being careful not to turn into flour. In a medium mixing bowl, combine crumbs with coconut sugar and melted oil or butter.
  • Add crumb mixture to a 9-inch pie plate or springform pan. Press crumbs onto the bottom and sides. (Tip: To make it a little easier, place a piece of plastic wrap around your hand for pressing or use the bottom of a drinking glass.)
  • Place pie plate on the center oven rack and bake 8 to 10 minutes, remove, and allow to cool completely before adding filling.
