Gluten and Sugar Free Blueberry Pie

Blueberry pie is and always has been one of my favorite pies. Since I don’t eat gluten or refined sugar I had to come up with a new recipe. This Gluten Free Sugar Free Blueberry Pie is actually a healthier alternative to the traditional pie. The crust is made with almond flour and a few tablespoons of coconut oil. Almond flour is low in carbohydrates and high in fiber and protein. For other health benefits of almond flour check out this post by Dr. Josh Axe. Also, instead of refined sugar, the blueberries are sweetened with Stevia. Of course you can use any sweetener of choice! So if you are looking for a healthier option for your Easter menu, this pie fits the bill! Enjoy!

For the crust
  1. 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  2. 4 Tablespoons coconut oil or butter
  3. 3 Tablespoons Splenda
For the filling
  1. 4 cups blueberries
  2. dash of salt
  3. 1 cup water
  4. 1 teaspoon liquid stevia (or 1 cup other sweetener)
  5. 1 1/2 Tablespoons cornstarch
For the crust
  1. Preheat oven to 350. While oven is heating put oil or butter in 8" or 9" pie pan and put in oven to melt.
  2. Remove pie pan from oven once oil has melted. Add almond flour and Splenda to the oil. Mix well then press mixture up sides and onto bottom of pan.
  3. Bake for 12 minutes.
For the filling
  1. While crust is cooking, put 1 cup of berries, water and stevia in a pan. Bring to a boil and cook 2-3 minutes. Mash some of the berries in the pan while they are cooking.
  2. Whisk in cornstarch until completely dissolved. Cook for several minutes or until slightly thickened.
  3. Add in the rest of the berries and stir until well coated.
  4. Pour into cooked pie crust then chill for several hours in the refrigerator.

  1. Me too! I am always on the search for low sugar desserts — and ones that are not empty calories. This blueberry pie looks perfect — thanks for sharing this!
  2. I’ve never baked anything with stevia, but now I’m curious. This would be great for dad! He’s diabetic, and he often complains about not being able to have dessert because everything is so high in sugar.
  3. Ha, I was just searching for a sugar free dessert and took a break to respond to comments on my blog. One of them was yours with a link to this recipe! Perfect timing!!! 🙂 This looks so yummy!
  4. One of my kids absoulutely adores blueberry pie but I admittedly have a hard time using the store-bought pie filling in a can in all its sticky, gloppy glory. This looks like a great alternative. I’ll have to try it! Thanks for sharing My Busy Beehives #beeparty this week!
