blueberry pie bites

This most recent Mother’s Day, I was tasked with bringing desserts. I broke out some of the old favorites, like these lemon blueberry cupcakes, but I really wanted to try something new that anyone could enjoy. With some family members who are gluten free, have various intolerances, etc, I knew I wanted to create something allergy friendly but still delicious. These blueberry pie bites are just the ticket. They’re sweet, fruity, crunchy, and perfectly bite sized. They’re also vegan, gluten free, and weight watchers friendly at just 2 points each (or 2 for 5). The star of this recipe is the homemade blueberry jam, which is so simple, has just 3 ingredients, and would be good on just about anything.

Making Blueberry Pie Bites

These bites are super simple, with just 7 total ingredients. First, you’ll make your crust, which requires:

  • Almond flour as the main base
  • Rice flour (or coconut flour) to help add texture
  • Coconut oil, melted
  • Maple syrup

Just mix them all together until you have a crumbly dough. Spray your mini muffin pan well with cooking spray and put 1/2 tbsp in each well. Press into a small crust shape (you want the bottom covered and for it to come about halfway up the sides) and bake at 350F for 8 minutes. Remove and let cool and get working on your blueberry filling.

To make the blueberry filling, you just need 3 ingredients. The end result is a sweet, tart, thick, luscious jam (that seriously, you could put on anything). The jam is made with:

  • Blueberries, fresh or frozen, which have been rinsed and dried
  • Sugar
  • Lemon juice, which will help thicken the jam by lowering its pH and helping it set

Simply combine the blueberries and sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat until the mixture comes to a boil (stir consistently). Once boiled, add lemon juice and reduce to a simmer and let the mixture simmer, stirring frequently, until thick – about 20-25 minutes. As it cools it will set more.

To assemble, just scoop some jam into each little crust. Dust with some powdered sugar or top with dollops of whipped cream and enjoy!
