1/4 cup oat flour
1/4 cup almond flour
1/2 cup shortening or lard

Mix together whey protein powder, oat flour, and almond flour. Cut in
shortening or lard into flour mixture using pastry blender, It will
resemble little peas when done. Add water, 1 Tablespoon at a time until
dough can hold together. Refrigerate till chilled for easier handling.
This dough can be rolled out by putting between two pieces of waxed
paper. Spray PAM on a pie plate (glass/Pyrex works best) before putting
crust in. If you take the pie crust over the rim, be sure to put
aluminum foil or pastry rim-guards
around edges to prevent it browning too much before pie filling is done.
