Can anyone help me with this recipie http://www.karenhurd.com/pages/recipes/rp-beanflourpiedough.html  I just can't think of what to substitute for the oat bran! If nobody will do it I will have to settle for pumpkin bean shortbread cookies *sniff, sniff* instead of pie  :-/

Maybe almond meal?

Or, try pressing your cookie dough into a pie pan and see if it works. :D

MMMmmmmmmm it's all about the CRUST  :P but that's true; if its not a grain or bean, most likely the answer is a seed or nut.

I usually grind up walnuts and or pecans with a small amount of compliant sweetener, just enough to make it stick together, and spices and press into a greased pan.  The crust will stick due to the melting of the sweetener so make sure to grease the pan.  Maybe adding an egg will work too, yet I haven't tried it that way.  Prebake for about 20 min just like any other crust.  A  good alternative to the egg is soaked flax seeds, they hold the mixture together well too.

I make a lot of crustless pies these days.

I just grind up pecans and press into a pie plate that I've greased with ghee.  I don't precook it.  I've used it for pumpkin pie many many times and my sons actually like it better than regular crust.  Depending on the pecans sometimes I add a little turbinado sugar.

Thanks. I just have to tweak it for a Warrior.  No agave, (don't like it) no coconut milk, no grapeseed oil

I use the crust only as I can't do coconut milk either. That's the great thing with having some cooking experience under our belts, we can tweak recipes!  :)

Thank you very much for that Dianne; I must try the chia seed "mousse" inside of it after the pumpkin! All my filling will need now is nut or buffalo milk.  :P Oh this sounds so decadent....

Those cookies will be quick! :)
