Blueberry season is in full swing here in Quebec. I stocked up on many boxes of blueberries from 2 different local farmers. I have a bag of wild berries sitting in my freezer and a large container of local organic ones in the fridge. Little E is devouring them like candy- which is something I probably should not be complaining about.

I have been impatiently waiting for this time of the year. I have so many different recipes juggling around in my head that I would love to try and create. I haven’t had a blueberry pie in a real long time, and decided to make a healthier, but delicious version of the conventional pie.

It is so simple to make, and takes no time at all to prepare.

What are some of your favorite pies? Have you tried to make a healthier version?
Raw BlueBerry Pie

INGREDIENTS

Crust

  • 1 1/2 cups of pistachios
  • 1 1/2 cups of walnuts
  • 14-16 dates, pitted

*I think the next time I make this crust I will use almonds instead of walnuts or just almonds all together. I found the crust has a walnut after taste I am not a fan of. Perhaps adding more dates might remedy that.

Filling

  • 1 cup of blueberries
  • 2 Tbsp of honey or maple syrup
  • 2 Tbsp of coconut oil, melted
  • 1 cup of cashews, soaked over night
  • 1 tsp if vanilla extract

Blueberry Sauce

  • 1/2 cup of blueberries, 1 cup of blueberries reserved
  • 2 Tbsp if honey or maple syrup
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract

METHOD

Crust

  • Process the 3 cups of nuts in a food processor until it becomes a fine crumble.
  • Add the dates and vanilla extract until it all blends together and becomes slightly sticky.
  • Firmly press the crust in a pie plate, and put in the freezer to firm up.

Filling

  • Process all the ingredients in a food processor until it becomes smooth and creamy.
  • Pour the filling into the pie crust and return it to the freezer until it is firm to the touch.

Blueberry Sauce

  • Process the 1/2 cup of blueberries, honey and vanilla extract in a food processor.
  • Once smooth, pour the sauce over the 1 cup of blueberries in a bowl.
  • Mix together.
  • Once the pie is firm, pour the blueberry sauce over the pie.
  • Place the pie in the fridge or freezer. If you opt for the freezer, let the pie thaw for a few moments before serving.

    Just made this for dessert tonight and everyone loved it. I used all raw nuts vs. salted/roasted, and I used a light honey (Acacia honey). The presentations is one of the best parts with the 3 distinct layers. This pie is really easy to cut when it’s been in the refrigerator. Thanks so much for the recipe. We’ll definitely make it again!

    • Good Girl Gone Green August 26, 2012 at 1:22 pm #

      I am so happy you liked it! I love raw nuts in my pie crusts, tastes so yummy! Thanks for sharing! :)

    This looks amazing! I am pinning this so I can make this for my oldest son.

  35. Tracey @ Dont Mess with Mama August 28, 2012 at 4:54 pm #

    Stephanie, I’m pinning this. Looks AMAZING! My hubby just found out he’s allergic to soy, gluten, egg – and has to be on a low-carb diet to help with his rheumatoid arthritis. This recipe will be perfect for him.

  36. Jeanine September 3, 2012 at 2:17 pm #

    I made this today, and it came out great! I used almonds for the crust instead of pistachios and walnuts, since organic pistachios are only available online where I live, and they’re expensive!

    This pie is satisfying and reminds me a bit of baklava. Thank you for this recipe! I’m adding it to my gluten-free, paleo collection.

    • Good Girl Gone Green September 12, 2012 at 11:07 am #

      Oh, I am glad you like it. Next time I am going to use almonds as well for the crust.

  37. TheHolisticHealthCoach September 12, 2012 at 1:59 pm #

    This pie looks heavenly! I look forward to making it! Thank you for sharing! :-)
