This easy and inventive oatmeal crust recipe created by me. This is one you would love to look forward to. Oatmeal can pass for breakfast or dinner, it came to be when I was thinking in my head what other healthier way to make the pie crust without much calories. Then it occurred to me to try ground rolled oats with my former crust recipe and see how it will work out and it sure did. Trust me you are going to love it. It more delicate than regular crust; also more filling than the regular crust but it tastes the same if not better.
2 &1/2 cups of rolled oat (I think quaker oats will work too, you only need 2 cups, the other half is for dusting the work place when you roll out the dough).
1 stick of cold butter
1/4 tsp of salt
1 tbs of sugar
1/2 cup of cold water
First grind the oats to powder form (you can do this a day in advance).
Cut the cold butter into cubes and put into food processor bowl.
In the food processor, add the ground oats, sugar, salt.
Press the pulse of the food processor to get the mixture to look like crumbs.
Then slowly add the cold water while the food processor is on (note that you may not need up to 1/2 a cup of water).
Sprinkle some of the remaining ground oats on your working space.
Bring out the dough from the machine and divide into balls.
Put in the fridge to chill for another 10 – 15 minutes.
Bring them out; roll it; put the fillings on one side and close it with the other side.
Pinch it together with your hands and then with a fork.
Brush with egg.
Poke the top with fork to let out steam.
Bake in 400 degrees F oven for 15 minutes or until it’s brown.
