I’m not usually one to say, “I feel like making a pie today!” Pies can be a lot of work, especially that pesky crust. I know you can buy premade pie crusts, but I prefer not to since they contain a lot of unhealthy additives. But making your own pie crust is no easy feat either. With the abundance of fruit at this time of year, I just knew I had to attempt a pie.
I’m a fan of crumble pies. You know, the ones with the “crumble” topping? I suppose it’s cheating a little when you don’t have to make the top of the pie crust…but I’m all about cheating when it comes to baking. I had a recipe for a whole grain pie crust, and I also had a ton of blueberries just waiting to be eaten. So put these two things together, and you get Whole Grain Blueberry Pie!
Okay, so maybe the pie crust isn’t the prettiest thing to look at, but this pie still tasted delicious! I call it the “rustic” look.
I loved the crumble topping the best. But let’s not forget about those sweet, juicy blueberries underneath that scrumptious topping.
You won’t need to feel guilty eating this pie.
- Blueberries contain some of the most powerful antioxidants
- The whole grain crust adds some much needed fiber
- This dessert doesn’t contain any butter, shortening, or lard
The kids loved this pie with some low-fat vanilla ice cream on top. I loved it warmed up and served naked, meaning, no ice cream or whipped cream! Feel free to substitute whatever fruit you like. The whole grain pie crust could be used for any recipe, sweet or savory.
