About 4 years ago, I was diagnosed with an auto-immune disease called Ulcerative Colitis. When I was first diagnosed I was handed a large amount of pills and told that I needed to take those everyday for the rest of my life, three times a day.
I was told when that stopped working, I needed to move on to heavier medications that are known as biologics. The idea of taking those terrified me as the side effects were pretty scary including illnesses like cancer and even death.
As soon as I got home from my doctors appointment with my initial diagnosis I began researching natural remedies and came across the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, also known as SCD.
Long story short (It may be too late for that) I began following SCD and eating only foods that were part of the Specific Carbohydrate Diet. You can find more SCD Recipes throughout the site as I have shared many in the past and since I enjoy making recipes this way because let’s face it, it is the only truly healthy way to eat, I have decided to start sharing more recipes for the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, click here to see the book by Elaine Gottschall that started this healing journey for so many illnesses.
Recently my husband had a craving for a Banana Pie so I whipped up this SCD Pie Crust and decided to share it with you. Stay tuned for the banana pie recipe as I will be posting that one soon but for now you can use this SCD Pie Crust recipe for lots of different pies and you will not believe how easy it is to make!
The first step is to gather all of your ingredients, I am pretty excited for this picture because it showcases one of my favorite items, these measuring spoons. There is something about the ceramic that really makes them fun to cook with in my opinion.
Add all of your dry ingredients together in a bowl. Mix the ingredients together and set it aside.
I really enjoy this SCD Pie Crust Recipe as it allows me to use some of my favorite mixing bowls that I picked up at a local hardware store on clearance. I just love the fun colors and shapes, some people get excited about technology, I get excited about housewares.
This page on Amazon makes me drool, seriously I could fill up twenty kitchens with my favorite items.
It can be hard to find ingredients that are SCD safe as you need to be sure there is no additives in your products because even if something says it is just cinnamon, it may contain anti-caking agents and other foods that are referred to as illegals when following the Specific Carbohydrate Diet.
Add all of the wet ingredients to a bowl, preferably a fancy one like these gorgeous bowls, and set aside.
Mix both wet and dry ingredients together until well combined. You will start to notice the color and texture changing.
Add that mixture to a pie pan, and if you are as lucky as me you will have also scored a pretty cool one from a local second hand store on the cheap, I’m just saying, the only thing that makes me as happy as housewares is a good deal.
Press the mixture into the pie pan by pressing into the corners and bottom as well as the sides of the pie pan.
Bake in a preheated oven on the tops rack at 350 degrees for about 18 minutes.
Add pie filling and refrigerate for fruit pies. If you are creating an SCD Pot Pie for the whole family or a dessert pie that needs to be baked, cut the pie crust baking time in half then add ingredients before returning your SCD Pie Crust to the oven.
