Whole Wheat Crust with #MapTruvia

I recently came across a really great and healthy recipe over at Cheeky Kitchen, but I made a few modifications to her original recipe! This is a wonderful whole wheat crust that you can use for a lot of things! So far I have used it as a pie crust and Strawberry pop tarts!

This is doubled so if you would only like to make just one pie crust you will need to cut this in half.

2 cups Whole Wheat Flour
1 cup  White Flour
2 Tbs. Brown Rice Protein Powder
1 tsp. Truvia
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup cold butter
10 Tbs. Almond Milk

In a large bowl, stir together flours, protein powder, Truvia, & salt. Slice butter into pieces and add to dry mixture. Mix together with fork until blended the best you can get. Do not touch the dough with your hands, the butter needs to be as cold as possible. Pour in milk adding one tablespoon at a time. Fork the mixture together until the dough holds well. Quickly form into a ball and refrigerate until ready to use.

You also don't have to add in the protein powder. I just used it to make the pop tarts for a great morning snack for my girls.
