Mother’s Day Pie

Mixed Berry Gluten and Sugar Free Pie!

For Mother’s Day I made this mixed berry (blueberry, raspberry and blackberry) pie with a gluten free crust (almond flour, buckwheat flour and coconut flour) and no sugar.  I used xylitol a natural sugar substitute and gelatin to thicken so it wouldn’t be too runny, which usually happens to my pies no matter what thickener I try.  So I thought why not try gelatin.  🙂

Below is the pie just before I put it in the oven.  I baked it at 425 degrees F, for about 30 minutes.  I checked on it often.

If you made a desert for Mother’s Day please share!  I would love to read what food traditions or just foods you decided to try for a special day like Mother’s Day. 🙂

  3. PS Try agar agar… it is a natural thickener similar to corn starch,,, I cannot wait to try the recipe.. However, being a vegetarian for over 35 years, I do not eat gelatin… Chia is also a good thickener, but it give a texture similar to tapioca.
