Many of us who enjoy the delicious benefits of Fuel For Thought® know that coconut oil is proven to raise ketones in the body, providing fuel for the brain. We also like to find recipes that utilize the goodness of coconut oil.
Coconut Oil Pie Crust
3 ounces (about 1/2 cup) refined solid (not liquid) coconut oil
1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon of fine sea salt
8 tablespoons of ice water
Place flour and salt in the bowl of a food processor and pulse briefly to combine, or combine by hand in a large bowl.
Add coconut oil and pulse until mixture resembles coarse meal, making sure there are no large pieces of coconut oil remaining. Or, cut coconut oil in by hand with two table knives or grate coconut oil into the flour mixture using a box grater.
Add ice water a couple of tablespoons at a time, and continue to pulse, or mix by hand with a fork, just until dough begins to come together.
Turn dough out onto a cutting board or a smooth surface and form into a flattened disc. Wrap with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least an hour or overnight. Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface when ready to use.
