1/2cupquick oatsuse gluten-free oats, if necessary
1/2cupsorghum flourmay use whole wheat flour or a mixture of unbleached and whole wheat
Preheat oven to 375 F. Lightly oil a 9-inch glass pie pan. (Recipe hasn't been tested in other baking pans or without oiling the pan; omit oil at your own risk.)
Put the oats into a food processor or blender and process until finely ground. Add the remaining dry ingredients and blend well. Transfer to a bowl and add the apple sauce. Stir well until completely combined.
Put the mixture into the pie pan, and starting at the center, flatten and press it with moistened fingers until it evenly covers the bottom and extends up the sides of the pan as far as possible.
Put it in the oven and cook for 8-10 minutes, until it it is crisp but not overdone. Set aside to cool before filling.
