Blueberry Pie Bake

gluten free

Blueberries are the BEST in the summer so this is the perfect time to try out this recipe. Even though this was originally supposed to be something slightly different, it became this beautiful blueberry pie bake and it's wayyy too good not to share! I love how something delicious and unexpected came out of what I thought was fail after fail.

A delicate, soft crust, blueberry filling bursting with flavor, and a sweet, oat topping!!.....YUM

This dish tastes wonderful cold or warm so it can be enjoyed anywhere from picnics to parties to movie night at home with family.

When cold, its more like a blueberry pie bar and when warmed, it's like a slice of pie!!

As with most of my recipes, many of the ingredients are substitutable so if you don't have alternative flours and/or sugars...no worries! I understand that people have different preferences, resources, and budgets so feel free to use what you have and it should still turn out great! I haven't tested other options yet but I know that almond flour can usually be substituted with white flour 1:1 and coconut sugar can be replaced with white sugar. Butter can probably be substituted with a different fat such as coconut oil and the chia seeds can be omitted. Experiment away!

Tiff Tips

  1. The dough is sticky so a little flour on your hands will help

  2. Keep pressing the crust until it reaches the edges. It may not seem like you have enough but it will spread

  3. A smaller pan (such as an 8x8) can definitely be used. Because it will be thicker, it will most likely require a little more cook time
