Gluten-Free Peach Pie

Gluten-free Peach pie with teff crust

Remarkably delicious, this pie is fun and easy to make. For a light-colored piecrust use ivory teff flour; for a chocolate-brown piecrust use brown teff flour. Both are equally scrumptious and both are available at natural foods stores to make great gluten-free pie crust and other baked goods.

Serves: 6 to 8

Crust:

  • 2 cups teff flour
  • 1/2 cup melted extra-virgin coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Filling:

  • 5 ripe peaches, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon maple sugar or date sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly oil a 9-inch pie pan.

To make the crust, combine the teff flour, oil, syrup, vanilla, and salt in a medium-size bowl and stir until well combined. Reserve 1/2 cup of the mixture to use as a crumb topping.

Transfer the dough to the prepared pie pan and use your fingers to press it out in an even layer over the bottom and sides of the pan. Poke a few holes in the dough with a fork. Bake for about 10 minutes, or until it loses its shine.

Peaches

Put the peaches in the baked piecrust. Sprinkle the maple sugar and cinnamon over the peaches.

Crumble the reserved dough over the peaches. Bake for about 10 minutes, until the crumbs turn a slightly darker brown, and the peaches are tender to your liking. Let the pie cool for at least 30 minutes before serving.

Note: Look for teff flour in your natural foods store. Leslie gives a slew of resources for obtaining gluten-free grains online in the book’s appendix.
