  1. Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Combine the graham cracker crumbs, flax seed meal, and ground almonds in a bowl; stir in the melted butter. Add a few drops of water, if necessary, for the crumb mixture to stick together. Press half of the crumb mixture into the bottom and sides of a 9-inch pie pan; the crust should only be about 1/8-inch thick. Set the other half of the crumb mixture aside.
  3. Combine the sour cream, yogurt, ground oats, sugar, honey, vanilla, and salt in a blender. Blend until combined. Transfer the blueberries to the pie pan and pour in the filling.
  4. To make the topping, stir 2 tablespoons of honey, or to taste, into the reserved crumb mixture. It should form a very thick paste. Drop teaspoonfuls of the topping on the surface of the pie.
  5. Bake the pie in the preheated oven on the middle rack for 30 to 45 minutes, or until the center is set and a knife inserted near the center of the pie comes out clean. Turn off the oven and let the pie rest in the warm oven for 10 minutes.
  6. Remove the pie from the oven and let cool on a wire rack. Chill in the refrigerator until the pie is cool and set.

Step 3: The egg is also supposed to go in the blender with the other ingredients.


I went and pick fresh blueberry from my local blueberry farm, so I needed a recipe and boy I'm glad I picked this one. I had a hard time finding a blueberry pie recipe with flax. I am not a fan of graham crack crust, but the blend of the almond and flax gave it a nutty sophisticated flavor that is so easy to make! I am not a pie crust making person. I always mess up and have to start over since I do not make pies often, but this one is so simple a elementary school kid could make it! The 4 cups of blueberries is the most I've ever seen in a blueberry pie recipe, but man you really know you're eating blueberry pie when you bite into this one. I added more butter to the crust recipe (1/2 cup total) which made it easier to apply to the 9inch pie dish as well as making it more buttery. I made extra crumble for the top because I don't know about everyone else, but I never seem to have enough pie crust. I cooked this pie for 30 minutes, the top seemed to start browning too much, when cooled it had the consistency of pudding, is this what it's supposed to be like? Or should it be firmer like a cheese cake? Anyway try it! You won't be disappointed!


I made this recipe as-is, which is rare for me! Only change was two use fruit-flavoured yogurt cups to make up for the amount of plain non-fat yogurt. The pie wasn't the least bit sweet, blueberries at their purest! I do think after discussing it with my tasters that the filling could be improved by adding some lemon or other citrus zest to give it that kick needed to make this five-star. I love the nutty taste of the crust and crumble- I had enough to completely cover the top of the pie so I did, and evenly spread it out. Would make this again in a heartbeat!
