My recipes for flax seed spinach flat bread/wraps taste great instead of crackers or grain-based wraps. Yummy also for kids to bring to school with lunch or to accompany salads or soups. You may find yourself experimenting with taste of making flat breads from ground mixtures of chia seeds, flax seeds, and sesame seeds and pie crusts from ground almonds, walnuts, cashews, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, topped with grated or shredded coconut. Check out the recipe at the site, "Flaxseed Wraps Recipe - Food.com - 463437."
You'd be surprised how many pie crusts or flat breads you can make from ground up seeds and nuts instead of grain-based flours and lard or butter. Also, you may wish to check out my other Examiner.com article on flax seed wraps, "Gluten-free flaxseed and spinach wrap."
Building up layers of a pie shell
For example, when you build layers of a pie shell, instead of rolling out crusts made from flour and lard, oil, or butter, just use a dry grinder or coffee grinder and grind up fresh almonds, cashews, walnuts, sunflower seeds, pistachio nuts, chia seeds, and flax seeds, about a handful of each, except for the flax seeds. Just use 3 tablespoons of flax seeds, ground into meal (or use flax seed meal available in most Sacramento health food stores). See, "Easy Low Carb Flaxseed Wrap - YouTube."
You put a layer of mixed nuts and seeds on the bottom your pie, and then top the nuts and seeds (ground to a meal texture) with a layer of shredded or flaked coconut. Then pour your pie filling on top of that before you bake your pumpkin or sweet potato pie. You can use this as a no-bake filling as well.
For a more moist crust, add 3 eggs and 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder to the flax seed mixture and bake a wet crust into a flat bread
Bake the egg-crust about 20 minutes or until it's firm to the touch and slightly crispy like a cracker or chewy flat bread. Check out the site, "Wheat Belly Flaxseed Wrap Recipe by EILISH99 | SparkRecipes,"
Then top the crust with fresh sliced strawberries and sliced bananas and pitted cherries or blueberries. You can serve that type of pie as a flatbread crust. Or use a dry crust just made of nuts, seeds, and no eggs or moisture. Pour the wet filling on top.
You can bake until your wet topping is firm. Or use without eggs as a no-bake crust using only ground nuts topped with shredded or flakes of coconut and topped with fresh, sliced berries that don't need baking, such as sliced strawberries. If you need sweetening, use fruit juice such as pomegranate, apple, or cherry juice. Basically you can try all types of combinations of nuts and seeds as a pie crust without using grain. Another option is a coconut flour pie crust.
