  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients.
  4. Add the coconut oil until it is spread throughout the flour mix. Add the vinegar, honey and chia/psyllium mix. Slowly add the ice water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until a nice dough forms.
  5. Roll out between two pieces of parchment paper until 1/4″ thick and transfer dough to your pie pan OR take the dough from the bowl, place into the pie pan and press down with your fingers until a pie crust is formed.
  6. Bake for 5 minutes (if using muffin tins) or 10 minutes (if using pie pan). Transfer to the freeze and chill for 20 minutes before adding your filling.
