Very quick, very easy and very hearty. I replaced the coconut with extra oats and used it as a crust for apple pie. Very good, everyone loved it.

A lot of people don't know that coconut is not recommended for those with high cholesterol, so may not be healthy for all.

Not bad at all. More difficult to mold than our typical pie crust - I added about 4 tbsp of water total to help with that. It's important to press it into the pan thin, because my first one came out with some pretty thick points. Obviously not as good as your traditional shortening&butter crust, but sacrificed taste is worth the health advantage. Will definitely make again.

This is excellent. Don't forget to grease the pan a little first - the 1st one I made stuck a little. I made a bumbleberry pie and used a crumb topping. Came out amazingly! This is the only crust recipe I will use from now on. Would work as a bottom for squares too.

This pie crust was so incredibly delicious. Very easy to make. I used it as is and also without coconut (with extra oats) and it turned out great both times. Even after a few days the crust has held up after being refrigerated and was not mushy. I will definitely keep experimenting with this crust and different fillings. Thanks!

This is a great recipe for those of us on the whole grain kick. I used whole wheat for the flour and needed to double the water, and I left out the coconut,then I rolled it out and used it as the top for a pot pie. It was Scrumptious! The whole family loved it. Can't wait to try it on something else.

I loved it! I left out the coconut and added extra oats. I also ground the oats into a flour like consistancey and added a tablespoon of sugar. I will make this again.
