Real Moms Love to Eat…..Wild Blueberry Apple Pie That Is!

Real Moms Love to Eat —- Don’t we? Seriously, I’m a dessert connoisseur yet at the same time I’m attempting to work off this baby weight from a 3 year old and a 2 year old that I have running around the kitchen! Can’t a momma catch a break…..like seriously? Can’t the weight just go straight to my bra? Or better yet, can’t the calories help my hair grow nice and long? I’ll take that! Anyways, enough of my personal ranting, I’m in the mood now to tell you about a fabulous book and share a super yummy recipe too!

Homemade Wild Blueberry Apple Pie

Wild Blueberry Apple Pie
Serves 8

Ingredients:
For the crust

– 1 cup raw walnuts
– 1 tsp. finely ground chia seeds
– 1 cup pitted dates
– 2 tsp. water

For the pie filling
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup pitted dates

2 tsp. finely ground chia seeds
1 cup frozen wild blueberries, slightly thawed
4 medium apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
1 Tb. cinnamon

Directions:
To make the crust, combine the raw almonds and the first batch of chia seed
powder into a food processor. Pulse until finely ground. Add the dates and
water and process until the mixture gathers into a ball. Press the mixture
to form a thin crust in a very lightly oiled 8-inch pie plate. Prebake the
crust for 5 minutes at 250 degrees.

To make the filling, combine the water, pitted dates, chopped apple, and
second batch of chia seed powder in a blender. Blend until smooth. In a
large mixing bowl, combine the date mixture with the blueberries, sliced
apples, cinnamon, and raisins. Mix well. Spoon the filling into the pie
crust and bake at 200 degrees for 1 1/2 hours. Chill before slicing and
serving. top with ice cream and you’re good to-go!
