Triple Berry Pie Recipe
3/4 cup almond meal, packed
1/2 cup quinoa flakes
3 tablespoons buttery spread or butter
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 1/2 cups pitted black cherries (fresh or frozen)
1 1/2 cups blueberries (fresh or frozen)
1 cup cranberries (fresh or frozen)
1 tablespoon bourbon (optional)
3 tablespoons agave
1/2 tablespoon cornstarch (or arrowroot)
1) Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
2) Generously prepare 4 (4-inch) tart pans or a pie pan with buttery spread.
3) Combine all of the crust ingredients in a mixing bowl.
4) Press the crust mixture into the prepared tart pans. It is sticky, but with a bit of patience it will make a great crust. You can pop it in the freezer for a few minutes if it gets too sticky.
5) Bake the crust for 10-12 minutes until golden. (It also puffs up a bit.)
6) Combine the berries, bourbon, and agave in a sauce pan and simmer on medium heat until the berries start to break down.
7) Create a slurry with the cornstarch and 1 tablespoon of water. Add to the berries and bring the mixture to a boil briefly. Remove from the heat and allow the mixture to cool a bit.
8) Transfer the berry mixture into the prepared pie crusts. Enjoy warm, room temperature, or cooled.
I am sharing this recipe on Allergy-Free Wednesday,
That pie looks awesome, and I’m glad your daughter is starting to feel better.
Thank you Amber! She had a mystery vomiting illness as a 3 yr old and lost 3 lbs that time. She was SO skinny. This is day 9 of the fever but it is lower so I think we are almost done. My husband is naturally lean and I am carefully diet and exercise “induced” lean- not overweight but more filled out as a child and I gain weight at the drop of a *pie*. So… this kind of thinness is new to me!
PS. My husband is begging me to make the pie again!
I’ve been there! When my son was 2 some crazy virus or whatever it was invaded his body and he was sick for a month with diarrhea and vomiting. It was so scary. Of course I thought he had Crohn’s like me, but that came back negative. We had him tested for everything…all negative. I remember how much weight he lost. It’s just so scary to see your little one suffering. You feel so…helpless. Just as quickly as whatever he had took hold, it was gone. And then it was all about plumping him up. We are a skinny family – long and lean so I know what you mean by not having much meat on the bones to being with! I’m so glad your daughter is feeling better. You’re a great mommy and she is in the best care with you at home!
And your pie looks fabulous. Look at how easy and fuss-free. I can’t wait to try your crust. So smart!
Take care of yourself too momma.
