Sometimes the name of a dish just assures that it is going to be good…
Gluten Free Pear Pie
Pies are everywhere. And when you are gluten free, especially for a child, it so disappointing when you can’t eat pie. So today we remedy this! It is similar to my Rose Fruit Dessert but requires a little chopping and mixing.
Gluten Free does not mean that a food is good for you, it just guarantees that you will not get any gluten. However, the substitutes are usually very processed foods filled with chemicals and other additives. We are definitely NOT perfect; and we slide sometimes. However, we minimize the gluten free products by making many real food easy recipes at home. Here’s a great one:
7 Pears, you could use apples
1/4 C Soaked & Crispy Nuts
1 Tbsp Cinnamon
1/2 C Organic Unsulphured Dates or Raisins
1 Tbsp of Fat (we enjoy raw, softened butter or coconut oil)
Cut the tops off the apples or pears. Use a knife or grapefruit spoon (like this) and dig out the center.
Chop up the meat you have removed from the fruit and put it in a mixing bowl. Add chopped nuts, cinnamon, oats, fat, and dates. Mix gently to work in all ingredients evenly.
Use the same grapefruit spoon to gently place the mixed ingredients into each fruit. Fill each fruit generously.
Place in a glass or stainless steel baking dish with a bit of butter or coconut oil and Bake for 30-45 minutes at 375ºF.
Eat all remaining ingredients with a glass of local, organic raw milk.
Remove from the oven and let cool for a few minutes.
Serve warm and enjoy this most delicious gluten free Pear Pie (or apple pie).
