  1. This sounded really great until it said “dehydrate for 24 hours”. There must be an easier way or different ingredients to get a similar result!!!!! Dehydrating takes a dehydrator or willingness to put into an oven for a long time — too much effort for so little results. I’ve created wonderful crusts with almonds and dates in a food processor for example.

    • An oven on at low temp is easy without a dehydrator. If you have to leave you turn it off and when you return turn it back on and go about your business. Use a timer to alert you when it’s done. During the summer you can use the sun to dehydrate the crust as well, (tomatoes and fruits and more too in the sun.)

  2. With the coconut oil in there, you shouldn’t have to dehydrate. If you want a crispy crust is where dehydrating is required. Otherwise just add a little less coconut oil and maybe some coconut crystals instead of the agave to sweeten it up. If you’re freezing it the crust will harden and stay together without dehydrating.

  3. In the Filling Ingredients, it says “1 ½ organic raw almonds, soaked overnight in water” is that cups, lbs? Thanks!
