Oh blueberry season, how we love you so! And these paleo blueberry custard pie bars are the perfect nut free, dairy free, and naturally sweetened treat for spring and summer. Just a few simple ingredients required to make these healthy dessert bars everyone is sure to love.
It’s happening guys, it’s seriously happening. The second best time of year for fruit (first being watermelon season of course).
BLUEBERRY SEASON. Which means all things blue and juicy and baked and snackable. It also means I’m not paying $8 a pint for blueberries with my little ones act like they will die at the grocery store without them. You’re welcome for the entertainment fellow grocery shoppers.
I love throwing blueberries down as much as my kids do, but I might love them even more when folded so delicately into baked goods. What is it with baked blueberries that makes them so magical and even juicier and basically more addictive than in their raw state? I don’t know – I don’t have answers to these philosophical life questions, but I do have a batch of these paleo blueberry custard pie bars in my fridge and it’s making my entire week better. That is, if they make it through the week….
It’s no secret that I don’t necessarily love creating paleo dessert recipes. Usually I fail multiple times before getting it just right. Except with these…BOOM, perfect the first time. You know what that means? Basically fool-proof. And basically pie in a bar. Which is basically (no, most-certainly) nirvana.
A perfectly crumbly crust (that stays together) under sweet custard filling with a bunch of juicy blueberries folded in = food porn.
These paleo blueberry custard pie bars and the perfect morning treat or light and cool afternoon snack. Dinner dessert? Sure, that too. I sorta just want them every hour of the day.
The base is comprised of coconut and tapioca flour (NUT FREE) pressed into the bottom of a pan and baked until just slightly golden. The custard is comprised of eggs, raw honey, tapioca flour, and of course, blueberries, then poured over the crust and baked to perfection. And these paleo blueberry custard pie bars aren’t overly sweet, making them perfect for healthy kiddo dessert. But don’t worry, if you love your desserts sweet, you can always add a little more honey to your liking.
You bet your blueberry britches these gluten free/grain free, nut free treats will be rotation all summer long. I can’t wait to dazzle and impress at all our neighborhood get togethers. #showoff
