Keto Graham Cracker Pie Crust
I set out to make a Graham Crack Pie. You know the one, right? The old fashion pie that you had when you were a kid? Ok, well that is what it was for me.
There are some Graham Cracker Crust recipes out there on the internet, but none that appealed to me. So, of course, I created my own.
The key is to toast the almond flour. This is quite easy to master and quite easy to quickly mess up too. The first time I tasted almond flour, I burnt it.
Also - make sure you use powdered erythritol when it is called for!
Now, all pie crusts are not made equal! This one has a rich, cinnamon, "graham cracker" flavor. If you are looking for a lighter crust and one that you can make those beautiful crisscrosses with on top - check out this tasty cream cheese keto pie crust. YUM!
How to make a keto graham cracker pie crust
You are in for a treat here because there is nothing fancy that has to occur!
All the ingredients can just get dumped into a bowl and mixed with a spatula. BOOM.
Do I need to bake my graham cracker crust?
No this one! Some you do and some you don't. I use this one in both cooked and no bake pies.
How to toast almond flour
Are you ready for this? You add the almond flour to a pan, over medium heat. Then constantly stir until the almond flour is browned and fragrant.
It doesn't have to really be CONSTANT, but every few seconds you should be getting the bottom layer off the heat and mixing it up. That's it! It takes about 5-7 minutes.

How to make powdered erythritol
Are you ready for more complex instructions? Kidding, of course....
All you need is a food processor of sorts (could be as fancy as a ninja or as simple as a magic bullet. I have both and both work! Then you simply blend the erythritol for a minute or two until it gets fluffy like powdered sugar.
It won't be quite as fluffy as real powdered sugar, but will definitely be fluffier than regular erythritol. You can also buy powdered erythritol too, but I prefer to make my own.
