Elderberry Vanilla Pear Pies (Vegan, Low Carb & Gluten Free)

Who else loves berries no matter the season? Hard to resist any type of berry and in this recipe that will give you an extra boost of antioxidant.


For this recipe I’m using elderberry, a berry that is known for its high content in antioxidants that will also pump up yournimmune  system. Delicious and nutrient dense vegan pies!




About these Elderberry Vanilla Pear Pies :

How can we say no to a good pie recipe? This is such a great combination of flavors; pears + vanilla + elderberry in a creamy and vegan pie!


In this recipe we are using simple ingredients and nutrient dense. From the coconut yogurt for the thickness, to the pears and elderberry that will add some fiber and antioxidants... just easy and delicious recipe that you cannot miss out.


The Base, Almond Butter Goodness:

Silky and creamy almond butter base! The base is pretty simple; almond butter and some oat milk that makes it even creamier.


Soft, creamy and melts in your mouth and just the best of both worlds. For snack or dessert these bars are just a great idea and good to keep in your freezer, no need to bake or cook... so this recipe is basically fail proof.






Made with simple ingredients and minimal steps that makes these bars even better and convenient, only the best way to start the day; gluten free, low carb and dreamy tasting snack, breakfast or treat.


And because we all love a good easy and convenient snack I kept it super easy, made with the simplest ingredients that are also good for you!



Key Ingredients:

Okay, so as I mentioned earlier I'm using elderberry that will also be giving this recipe that deep beautiful purple color and that touch of antioxidants. Plus some pears to add that touch of the season… and along with the vanilla: KEY!







Overall, these are the ingredients needed for these Elderberry Vanilla Pear Pies:

  • Almond Butter

  • Elderberry Crystals

  • Unsweetened Oat Milk

  • Granulated Monk Fruit

  • Pear

  • Madagascar Vanilla Extract

  • Coconut Yogurt


A very complete recipe here! They key is always choosing better ingredients; in this occasion we are adding that sweetness with granulated monk fruit as a replacement of regular sugar that has a lower impact in blood sugar.


The coconut yogurt, pear and elderberry creates a perfect fall and satisfying recipe, for snack or desert! You just have to make these easy vegan pies.


Super nutrient dense and extremely easy to make! Only mix, pour and freeze. It doesn't get easier and as delicious! A great way to step up the immune system game!


Nutritional Benefits of this Recipe:

Well, we are all about that immune health here, since we are using elderberry that has a high content of vitamin C and fiber. Each cup has 10.2 grams of fiber and in this case I’m using the concentrate (crystals from Flora).


Plus pears are also also another source of fiber, vitamin C, K and copper. Along with the almond butter of course, more unsaturated fats for the win!
