Have you tried any other whole grain flours? Non-gluten, maybe?

I haven't, i'm sorry. I have only done a bit of gluten-free baking, and none in the realm of pastry. I hope someone here will be able to offer some helpful advice. As a starting point, here's a gluten-free crust from Kate McDermott via The Gluten Free Girl and the Chef:

One alternative is to eliminate the crust, just make the custard, maybe with a sprinkle of expresso crystals on top. If you want a good crust, look through GF tart recipes on food52 -- There are many gifted GF bakers on this site.
