Healthy pie crust

This recipe for a pie crust is a wonderful replacement for a traditional butter and grahm cracker recipe.
I also bake it and crumble it over top of a fruit compote. Warmed and drizzled with honey or agave is AMAZING! Dollop of non fat greek yogurt and you have dessert.

Makes 8 servings

1cup oatmeal
3/4cup all-purpose flour
1/4tsp salt
1/4cup vegetable oil
2tablespoons ice water
  1. Mix oatmeal, flour, salt in a bowl
  2. Slowly drizzle in oil, mixing with fork. Continue lightly mixing with fork and cutting through mixture until all dry ingredients are moistened and mixture resembles fine crumbs.
  3. Add few drops of water at a time, until mixture begins to form a ball.
  4. Pat into a 9" pie plate (or roll between 2 sheets of wax paper)Remove top sheet and turn pastry and into a pie plate then remove second piece of wax paper. Form a rim and flute edges.
  5. Prick pastry with fork in several places. Bake at 200C for 10 mins until light golden brown.
