Here’s what you need to make them:

  • Almond flour
  • Coconut flour
  • Baking Soda
  • Eggs
  • Honey
  • Vanilla extract
  • Unsweetened applesauce
  • Lemons
  • Fresh blueberries

Swapping with Frozen Blueberries

It’s so nice during blueberry season to include them fresh in this muffin, but in the dead of winter, frozen blueberries can work too! To avoid turning the muffin batter blue fold the blueberries in while they’re still frozen. They might need an extra minute or two to cook in the oven, but otherwise the recipe will work the same.

Almond flour is a delicious and nutrient dense alternative to any other flour. It is low in carbs and high in fat which makes it a great healthy flour that you can feel great about eating.

How to Measure Almond Flour

If you have an electronic kitchen scale at home, it’s best to use it here to measure almond flour. Almond flour can be tricky to measure as it can be easily compacted, even straight from the bag. The same goes for coconut flour too since it’s such an absorbent flour. Even a small measuring error with coconut flour can impact a recipe. So we’ve included the weight in grams here. Any electronic kitchen scale can switch between grams and ounces. Since grams are more precise we’re use that. If you don’t have a scale: whisk almond flour until it’s lightened up and lightly scoop the almond flour or coconut flour into the cup measurement and level it off.

Tips for baking this Gluten Free Blueberry Pie:

  1. Make the crust 1-2 days ahead of time. Check out this gluten-free almond flour crust recipe and this gluten and nut free oat flour recipe to figure out which one you’ll want to use!
  2. Roll the crust out ahead of time. Place the bottom crust in a tin and cover with plastic and chill until ready to use. Place the top crust on a parchment lined baking sheet, and cover with plastic wrap and chill until ready to use. This ensures it doesn’t dry out. You can do this a day ahead or a few hours ahead of time. It also makes it easier to work with the crust since it’s already cold. If you are choosing to make the stars and stripes design, or weave a lattice, do so on a piece of parchment paper.
  3. You can make the blueberry pie filling ahead of time, up to 2 days.
  4. Make the whole pie a day ahead of time! You can leave it at room temperature, covered, for 24 hours. Simply place in the oven at 350 for about 10-15 minutes to warm up, if desired.

stars and stripes for blueberry pie decoration

How to Decorate for the 4th of July

To make this into a stars and stripes pie you’ll need a star shaped cookie cutter or stamp and either a pizza wheel or a knife to make the stripes. Make sure your pastry is chilled when you are are working with it. If at any point the dough is too soft, place it in the refrigerator to chill for about 10-15 minutes.

  1. Roll out dough.
  2. Using a pizza wheel cut 6 strips of dough. Place them on the pie evenly, using scissors to cut them to the correct size in order to make the stripes of the flag. Don’t forget to leave a space in the upper left corner.
  3. Stamp out 8-12 stars, depending on the size of your cookie cutter and place them in the upper left corner.

Other Ways to Decorate it

You could also top this pie with:

  • a plain double crust with a few holes cut into it for steam to escape
  • a lattice; use bigger strips of pastry for this gluten free crust. See this post for more information on making a lattice.
  • a crumble topping! Use this recipe for making a crumble topping.

Gluten-Free Blueberry Pie

Prep Time 00:10 Cook Time 00:50 Total Time 1:00 Serves 8-10

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Make pie crust. Choose between our gluten-free almond flour crust or gluten-free oat flour crust.
  2. In a large pot, add 4 cups blueberries, tapioca, maple syrup, coconut sugar, lemon zest, cinnamon and salt. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently until the blueberries are cooked and thickened up, about 5-8 minutes. Set aside to cool briefly. Add in the remaining cup of frozen blueberries to help the pie cool down faster.
  3. Pre-heat oven to 375ºF.
  4. Between two sheets of parchment, roll out 1 batch of dough to fit the size of a 9 inch pie tin and place in the pie tin.
  5. Roll out remaining dough disk to 10" circle, either to stamp our design to make the stars and strips pie or top the pie with a double crust, making sure to poke some slits into the crust to let steam escape.
  6. Pour the slightly cooled blueberry pie filling into the pie and either place American flag design or top with 2nd crust and seal it.
  7. If you'd like to egg wash the pie, whisk together egg and a splash of water and brush on to the crust. If desired top with raw sugar.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for 40 minutes in the lower-middle oven rack, or until the crust is is light golden all over. If the edges are cooking too quickly cover them with foil.
  9. Let the pie cool completely before serving.

Blueberry Pancake Fat Bomb

These Blueberry Pancake Fat Bombs are so easy to make and the perfect quick snack to have either on-the-go or as a pick-me-up between meals. They are no bake, taste just like blueberry pancakes and are gluten free and keto-friendly.

How do you make a fat bomb?Blueberry Pancake Fat Bomb

If you don’t have time to wake up early and cooking yourself up a pile of fresh pancakes, make these Blueberry Pancake Fat Bombs instead the night before! We love these high-fat, low (or no) sugar snacks that can keep hunger at bay in between meals or substitute in to keep your energy high. These no-bake Blueberry Pancake Fat Bombs are not only super easy to make, but they really taste like Blueberry Pancakes!

The key to the blueberry pancake taste is using freeze dried blueberries and a hint of maple syrup. If you are on a keto diet there are a some options out there for sugar-free maple syrup substitutes like the one from the brand Lakanto which is a blend of monk fruit and erthyritol.

Are fat bombs good for you?

What are fat bombs?

Similar to energy balls, fat bombs are small treats or snacks that pack a punch of energy, but instead of being made with ingredients like dates, dried fruit and nuts fat bombs prioritize ingredients like coconut oil, cacoa butter and other high-fat, low-carb ingredients. They’re also called keto bombs or fat fudge. You don’t have to be on a keto diet however to benefit from eating fat bombs as you only need a small amount to strike down any sudden hunger pangs that will help you making good decisions about your food choices until your next meal!

Are fat bombs healthy?

Everybody is going to have their own personal level of fat that they want to include in their diet. We love that these are heart-healthy fats and fats that fuel your brain like coconut oil.  When eaten in moderation fat bombs can help you make better food choices instead of grabbing whatever you can find in a state of hunger, or as a better alternative for a refined-carb high-sugar dessert. These will fill you up when you eat only one because it is a dense amount of fat (or energy).

    Easy Blueberry Jam with Chia Seeds

    This 4-Ingredient Easy Blueberry Jam is thickened with chia seeds, lightly sweetened, and seriously delicious! It’s kid-approved and Paleo friendly.

    Blueberry jam with chia seeds in a jarEasy Blueberry Jam Recipe

    This month we’re celebrating Summer fun, and what better than to celebrate with a healthy kid-friendly chia seed jam that can be topped or spread on everything! Ice cream, crepes, oatmeal, muffins, yogurt, pancakes, waffles, toast, or even have a spoonful plain! Blueberries are a superfood that I simply cannot get enough of. When they are back in season I stock up weekly and when they’re just about to go out of season, I freeze a bunch for smoothies and muffins!

    Say goodbye to store-bought jam loaded with preservatives and sugars. This jam is free of refined sugars and such a fabulous healthy alternative to traditional jam. You are going to be amazed at just how quickly it comes together and how thick it gets! I give the credit to the chia seeds, a super healthy seed used as the thickener!

    Ingredients Needed For Blueberry Chia Jam:

    • 2 cups fresh blueberries
    • 2 tablespoons  honey
    • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
    • 2 tablespoons chia seeds

    blueberry chia jam

    Are Chia Seeds Healthy?

    Yes! Chia seeds are a Paleo-friendly and nutrient-dense. They’re easy to digest and can even aid in digestion by helping this move along! They are also contain omega-3’s which means they’re not only good for your body but also good for your brain!

    Can you make jam without pectin?

    Absolutely! The chia seeds thicken this jam wonderfully by absorbing a lot of the liquid of the strawberries without having to cook the mixture for hours. As the directions state, we recommend cooking it a bit to get the correct desired consistency, and then after cooking the chia seeds will continue to absorb liquid to thicken up the jam.
