1. For the Crust: Heat oven to 350°F. Combine almond meal, oat flour, light brown sugar, and salt in a food processor; pulse to combine. Add butter and pulse to form pea-sized crumbles. Press into a greased 9-inch pie plate. Bake until lightly browned, 12 to 15 minutes; set aside.

3. For the Coconut Whipped Cream: Chill a medium mixing bowl and a whisk or electric beaters. Beat coconut cream 30 seconds until smooth. Add confectioners' sugar, tapioca starch, if using, and vanilla and continue to beat 1 minute more until thickened. Cover and chill until ready to use.
