Fresh Lemon Berry Pie

One of the things I LOVE about summer is the huge selection of berries that are in season. This is a perfect recipe for the fresh berries you just picked up at your local market. I made these in individual pie pans, but if you don't have many on hand, just use a large pie dish. Either will work just fine, and you will still enjoy the final result. I modified this recipe from here. I like the added lemon, it gives it that fresh, zesty taste. Don't like lemon- that's OK just leave it out. 

Fresh Lemon Berry Pie
2 cups fresh berries (I made one with just blueberries and one with 1/2 blueberries 1/2 raspberries- see pictures below)
4 eggs
3/4 cup canned coconut milk
3 T organic maple syrup
2 T melted butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 T coconut flour
Juice of one lemon
Zest of one lemon
Pinch of Salt

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. 

Grease baking dishes and add the berries to the bottom. Set aside. 

In mixing bowl, add wet ingredients and stir. Add flour, salt and zest of lemon. Stir until completely mixed. 

Pour this mixture over berries. 

Bake for 30 min. The top of the pie will be browned and the center will not jiggle when gently shaken. 

Remove from oven. Let it sit for about 5 min before eating. We added a bit of this ice cream to the top- so good!  Enjoy!
