healthier blueberry pie

The forth of July is this weekend so obviously I had to make a dessert for the occasion. Nothing screams forth of July like a flaky and sweet blueberry pie. This healthier blueberry pie is the perfect simple and delicious dessert for the occasion. I made it last weekend and I will be making it again this weekend for my family’s forth of July party. You just need to throw a few simple ingredients together and voila, you have a perfect pie!

For this recipe, I used my own homemade pie crust. However, if you want to go the simple way, you can pick up two pie crusts from the store and save yourself the extra time and hassle. I am in love with this recipe and I cant wait to eat it again on the forth. I am so excited to hear how you guys like it, make sure to comment below and let me know!

substitutions

Keep in mind that substituting ingredients may affect the flavor, texture, and bake time. With that said, here are my suggestions:

  • all purpose flour- replace with 1:1 gluten free flour
  • butter- replace with ghee or vegan butter
  • coconut sugar- replace with granulated sugar
