Tasty Tuesday: Vegan, Gluten-Free, Apple-Berry “Pie”

This is “pie” is a great alternative to make for those that cannot have gluten and/or dairy. It’s so delicious that I promise you won’t even miss the butter or flour! It definitely satisfies a sweet tooth, but without the heaviness found in many pies. It’s a light, yet fulfilling dessert choice…plus it’s super easy to make! Additionally it’s healthy enough that you won’t feel guilty when you have a piece for breakfast the following morning. :)

Ingredients:

1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats

1/2 cup chopped walnut

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1 tsp ground cinnamon

2 tablespoons ground flaxseed

pinch of salt

1/2 cup maple syrup

1 cup almond milk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted

2 ripe bananas, peeled and sliced

1 apple, peeled and diced

1 cup berries of choice (raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, or blackberries. Even cranberries will work, but I would suggest mixing 1/2 a cup of cranberries with an additional 1/2 cup diced apple to balance out the tartness of the cranberry).

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 375. Lightly grease pie pan with coconut oil.

2. Mix dry ingredients in a bowl. Set aside.

3. Combine wet ingredients in a bowl. Set aside.

4. Arrange banana slices along bottom of pie pan in a single layer.

5.  Top bananas with other fruit mixture.

6. Sprinkle the oat mixture evenly over fruit.

7. Pour wet ingredients over the top.

8. Sprinkle with additional cinnamon if desired.

9. Bake for approximately 45 minutes. Allow to cool about 15 minutes before serving.

I have made a few variations using different mixtures of berries. My hubby likes apple-cranberry best and my kids seem to like apple-blackberry the best. Experiment to see what flavor combination your family likes best. :) ENJOY!
