Low fat pie crust

The National Institute of Health offers the following low oil, low fat pie crust on their website. We haven't tried it yet, but it sounds like it would work well with pumpkin pie as well as some others…

1 cup quick oats
¼ c whole wheat flour
¼ cup ground almonds
2 TBSP brown sugar
¼ tsp salt
3 TBSP vegetable oil
1 TBSP water

Preheat your oven to 425º

Mix the oats, flour, ground almonds, sugar and salt together in a mixing bowl.

In a measuring cup or small bowl, blend the oil and water together with a small whisk or fork. This may take several minutes.

Add the oil & water mixture to the dry ingredients until it will hold together (you may need to add a sprinkle more of water).

Spray a pie pan with cooking spray and press the crust into it.

Bake it at 425 for 8-10 minutes until it is lightly golden brown.

Makes one bottom crust for a 9 inch pie.
