Flouless Pecan Gluten Free Pie Crust Recipe

A super easy, yet extremely flavorful gluten free pie crust recipe that everyone can enjoy.


  • 1-2/3 cups (6 ounces) ground pecans
  • 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger (for pumpkin desserts only)
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves (for pumpkin desserts only)
  • 1 large egg white


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. In the bowl of your food processor, pulse to grind nuts to a fine crumb. Do not over-process or it will turn into pecan paste. Add brown sugar, cinnamon, and allspice, and ginger and cloves, if using. Pulse until combined.
  3. Add egg white and pulse until large dough balls form.
  4. Transfer mixture to an ungreased pie dish. Press and distribute dough on the bottom and up the sides.
  5. Bake 10 - 15 minutes. Using a fork, stab the bottom of the crust several times to allow steam to escape any bubbles under the crust. If using a no-bake filling, set aside to cool on a wire rack, about 45 minutes. If baking your filling, follow the instructions in your recipe.


When omitting ginger and cloves from this recipe, substitute them for additional cinnamon, if desired.

  1. How well would this freeze once it is baked? I’m planning to use this crust with some vegan cashew cheesecakes and all the recipes say to set them up in the freezer.

      You can use half recipe of the No-Bake Gluten Free Cheese Cake and and chill.
