Sorry Marie Antoinette….you may have wanted everyone to eat cake, but I’m over here pushing pie!
And not just any pie…delicious mini pies that are healthy and fit a vegan meal plan! Say whhhaaaaaaaattt??!!!
Since today was a refeed day (for those not doing the same program as me, this is a specific day where the carbs I eat change a little and I can have some white flour/sugar options that fall into the meal plan). When I knew this day was coming, I started to research what treats I wanted to have. I knew for sure I wanted to make chickpea brownies (they are delicious….I’ll have to share that recipe) and a few other recipes, but I kept coming back to one that sounded really tasty: no bake blueberry pies. Sure, I love pie! Let’s add that to today’s meal plan!
The end result: AMAAAAZZZZZZZZZZZIINNNNGGGGGGGG!
Let me share with you this easy recipe so you can make these delicious (and healthy) pies!
NO BAKE BLUEBERRY PIES
-2 2/3 cups gluten free graham crackers (I use Smoreables)
-1 Tbl pure maple syrup
-1/4 cup + 2 tbsp coconut oil
-3 1/2 cups blueberries
-1/2 cup coconut sugar
-3 Tbl cornstarch+3 Tbl water
-1 cup water
-2 Tbl lemon juice
-1 dash sea salt
Pulse graham crackers in a food processor (or blender if you have one that is higher powered) until ground finely. Add syrup and coconut oil to mixture and pulse to combine.
Line a muffin tin with 12 muffin liners. Place 2 Tbl into each cup, then press with fingers to mold into a mini pie shell. Place in freezer to set.
In a saucepot, add 2 cups blueberries, coconut sugar, water, and salt. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer, cooking until the blueberries burst (about 7 minutes). Mix cornstarch plus tablespoons of water into a mixture, then mix into the blueberries until mixture thickens. Turn heat off, then stir in blueberries and lemon juice. Chill mixture in refrigerator until it reaches room temperature (about an hour). After chilled, fill each muffin cup with 1/4 cup of blueberry mixture, then refrigerate for 2 hours to allow pies to set. Enjoy!
Those on a Fix inspired meal plan, one pie counts as 1/2 purple, 1 tsp, and 1 1/2 yellow.
