Hey there, fellow food enthusiasts! Today, I’m excited to share a delightful recipe that has quickly become a favorite in my household: Keto Blueberry Pie. This recipe is a game-changer for anyone following a ketogenic lifestyle or simply looking to reduce their sugar intake without sacrificing flavor.

I first stumbled upon this gem during a family reunion at my aunt’s countryside home. Surrounded by loved ones and the lush, rolling hills of her backyard, I was introduced to the concept of keto desserts by my health-conscious cousin. She whipped up this incredible blueberry pie that was so delicious, I could hardly believe it was low-carb. Inspired by her creation, I decided to experiment and create my own version. The result? A mouthwatering pie that’s perfectly sweet and wonderfully satisfying, with a flaky crust that holds up beautifully against the juicy blueberry filling.

What I love most about this recipe is its versatility. You can tweak it to suit your taste or dietary needs. For instance, swapping blueberries with mixed berries or adding a touch of vanilla extract to the filling can add a new dimension of flavor. If you’re a fan of nuts, try incorporating a handful of chopped pecans or walnuts into the crust for an added crunch. This pie not only satisfies your sweet tooth but also brings a sense of comfort and nostalgia, much like the classic pies we all grew up loving.

So, whether you’re hosting a summer picnic, celebrating a special occasion, or simply craving a slice of homemade goodness, this Keto Blueberry Pie is sure to impress. Let’s dive into the recipe!

Making Keto Blueberry Pie

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup sweetener of your choice (I used allulose), granulated
  • 1/2 cup of coconut flour
  • 3 1/2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1 tablespoon of chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 large egg, whisked
  • 3/4 cup cold, salted butter
  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Directions

  1. In a bowl, mix the almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, and xanthan gum. Cut the cold butter into small pieces.
  2. Use a food processor or high-speed blender to blend the dry ingredients with the butter until you get a fine, crumbly texture.
  3. Shape the dough into two smooth balls, wrap them in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least two hours.
  4. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a 9-inch pie dish and set aside.
  5. In a small saucepan, combine the blueberries, sweetener, lemon juice, and chia seeds. Heat on low until it begins to simmer, then stir gently for 4-5 minutes before removing from heat.
  6. Roll out each dough ball between two sheets of parchment paper, making one piece larger than the other. Place the larger piece into the pie dish with the sides overhanging.
  7. Pour the blueberry mixture into the pie crust and spread it evenly. Cover with the second layer of dough, crimping the edges. Brush with the whisked egg.
  8. Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until the top is golden brown. Let the pie cool for a few minutes before serving.
