The secret to make it taste like an Oreo is the use of two different types of cocoa powder.

How to Make it
This pie crust couldn't be easier! All you need to do is:
- Melt the butter.
- Combine all ingredients together in a bowl, or to make it even easier, put them inside of the bowl or pot you used to melt the butter.
- Pour the mixture into a 9" pie plate and start pressing the ingredients up the sides of the pie plate to form the edges first. Once the edges are formed, work the crumbs down to evenly distribute into the bottom of the pie plate and pack it down into an even layer.
- No need to bake this crust. Simply freeze for 30 minutes before using for your favorite no-bake pie filling!

This looks great! Can you make this with Gluten Free All Purposes 1:1 flour? We have a severe nut allergy in our family.
Hello! This recipe is pretty specific to almond flour. However I have a chocolate pie crust recipe that I often will sub in 1-1 gluten-free flour for it and it works great! Here is the link: https://everydaypie.com/chocolate-pie-pastry/

This looks awesome. It also is cheaper than using GF Oreos which are pricey!
Thank you! Hope you enjoy!
Can butter be replaced with oil?
The only oil that would work is coconut oil--since it hardens when chilled!
Salt is listed in the first part of the recipe, but further on it is not listed with any amount. We didn’t add any salt. I hope it turns out okay.
Oh yes, that was an error. No salt in the actual recipe. I've updated it!
Can this crust still be baked, as in a traditional baked cheesecake? Will it not hold up to the heat of baking, is that why you say to freeze and use no-bake recipes?
I haven't tried it in a cheesecake, but my best-educated guess would be that it should work out! If you try it, let me know how it goes! -Kelli
Hi Kelli! Can this be used instead of the regular Oreo crust in your Mississippi Mud Pie? Do you have any recommendations for the baking steps in that recipe?
I believe it can, but I can't say for sure. I would follow the instructions for baking in the Mississippi Mud Pie post. If you do it, let me know how it goes!
Will this crust work in a removable bottom tart pan, or will it fall apart when it’s taken out? I would like to use it for a gluten free crust in a caramel tart.
Super easy and delicious! I made it with the mint pie and can't wait to try it with other fillings.
Can you use this as the crust of an ice cream pie.
I love the name of your website and cannot wait to try your different gluten free recipes!
