Healthy (and Easy) Blueberry Pie Recipe

It's National Blueberry Pie Day!

Every year April 28th marks Blueberry Pie Day, recognizing one of America's favorite desserts. Blueberries are one of the healthiest fruit on the market and using them as filling in a delicious pie is a no brainer, really. Here is a healthy and easy pie recipe to honour this day.

Ingredients
For the crust:

2 cups blanched almond flour (oat flour will probably work too, but it will not be grain free)
2 T coconut oil
1 flax egg (1tbsp of flaxseed meal + 2.5tbsp of water)
¼ tsp sea salt

For the filling:

5 cups fresh blueberries
⅓ cup maple syrup
⅓ cup water
Juice from ½ a lemon
1 tsp cinnamon
2 T chia seeds
1 T arrowroot
¼ tsp sea salt

Preheat oven to 350.

In a food processor, mix the flour and salt. Add in the coconut oil and flax egg and pulse until a dough starts to form.
Press the dough into a glass pie dish and bake for about 9-10 minutes.
In a medium saucepan, combine the blueberries, maple syrup, water, lemon juice, cinnamon, and salt. Bring to a boil and then turn down and simmer for about 3-5 minutes.
Once the mixture is done simmering, add in the chia seeds and arrowroot and mix well. Let the mixture sit for about 5 minutes.
Pour the blueberry mixture into the pie crust and bake for 15-20 minutes.

Enjoy!
