Gluten-free Karelian pies get a delicious dark taste and a wonderful colour with Virtasalmen Viljatuote's dark teff flour. Try it and fall in love with it too.



  • Mix the salt and psyllium into the water.
  • Let the psyllium swell for a moment.
  • Mix the flour together.
  • Stir in the flour mix in small batches, stirring all the time.
  • Stir the dough until it comes away from the sides of the bowl.
  • On a baking tray, roll the dough into a bar and divide into about 15 equal sized pieces.
  • Roll out one piece of dough at a time into a pie crust, fill and crimp.
  • Bake the gluten-free Karelian pies at 250 degrees for about 15 minutes and brush with butter after baking.


  1. Thanks for the advice! I made my first ever gluten-free karelian pies with this recipe, and it turned out great! My husband said they almost tasted like real rye pies. I used teff flour for 75% of the flour.

    1. Hi Mari,
      Thanks for your comment! Great to hear that the pies turned out so well on the first try 🙂 Thank you!
