Summer Pie...

This is the view from our roof, we like sitting up there soaking in the Summer.  One thing that makes it even better is pie!  It has been a while since Kainoa shared a recipe, here is one for the roof tops!
This pie is so easy even a 5 year old can do it!  It is so simple most all moms have the ingredients ready to roll and if not IT IS OKAY because the pie has been made a million times, in a million ways, with whatever you have in the kitchen...

Summer Pie is basically, oats, fruit, flour, something sweet, something creamy.  That is it.  I'll tell you what we used but KNOW you can use whatever you have on hand and it will turn out.

  • 3 cups of berries (no berries, that is okay, use apples, pears, peaches, ect.)
  • 1 1/2 cups oats
  • 1 cup coconut flour (use ANY flour your diet eats)
  • Agave to taste (use honey, stevia, brown sugar, white sugar, whatever you like)
  • 1 cup coconut oil (again, up to you, butter works too!)
  • Optional to the crust:  Mash in a banana, nuts, coconut shreds, cinnamon (we did).
To make it:  Mix everything but the fruit in a bowl.  Mix it well and taste it often.  Pour in sweet stuff till you like it even better.  It will vary by person.  A banana holds it together well, dates will sweeten it up, coconut shreds give it a texture, and I like nuts...there is no wrong way.

Use half the crust in the bottom of a pie pan, no need to grease it.  Add your berries (or papaya, apples, any fruit, 3 cups worth) to the pie.  It will be fully loaded.  Now you can add more agave or sweet stuff here too. 

Add the remaining parts of the crust on top of the fruit.   Bake at 350 for about 30-35 minutes.  We bet you like it.  It is so easy and every week of Summer you can mix up the fruit combination or what you add into the crust. 
Happy Summer!

Oh My! I thought I had already replied to this post!!
That's a great pie which I'm sure it tastes yummi and witha tropical twist.

here we do one with bread dipped in the berries juices and sugar then we line a bowl with them and pour all the warmed fruit (blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, etc) and let it set in the fridfe. It's called a summer pudding.
