Apple, Pear & Blueberry Pie - The healthy fruit pie recipe for toddlers
There’s something magical about cracking open the crust of a pie. And it’s as satisfying for tiny humans as it is for us grown-ups.
Today we’re sharing a healthy fruit pie recipe for toddlers that’s so yummy, cute and wholesome that we’ve added it to our favourite recipe rotation. And it pops up at least once a month at WMBT HQ!
We love turning the recipe into super cute individual pies by portioning them in our Snackies before popping them in the oven. Not only does this create perfect toddler-friendly sizes, it also turns each creation into bear, bunny or cat-shaped delights. And which toddler can resist that?
Another easy, yet effective staple that comes out to play is our Australiana Stampies set. It sets you up with a collection of Aussie animal friends ready to add the personal touches to each pie crust before they slot into the oven.
Whether you’re toddler loves koalas, digs kangaroos or adores wombats, there’s an animal stamp to invite your munchkin’s favourite over for afternoon tea.
Now grab your ingredients, get baking and then trust your dishwasher to take care of the Snackie and Stampies set for you. Because you’ve done enough of the hard work already! #donefortheday
Makes 4 Snackie Pies | Prep 30 minutes
- 500 g stewed apple, equates to approximately 5 apples, peeled and cut into chunks
- 500 g stewed pear equates to approximately 5 pears, peeled and cut into chunks
- 125 g (1 punnet) blueberries
- 2 tbsp honey
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- 300 g (2 cups) white spelt flour
- 50 g (¼ cup) rice flour
- 150 g butter
- 60 ml (¼ cup) maple syrup
- 1 egg, whisked
In a large bowl, add the stewed fruit, honey, and cinnamon. Mix until well combined before sharing out evenly between the Snackies.
Preheat oven to 160 C. Sieve both types of flour into a bowl and combine.
Rub the butter into the flour until it resembles fine crumbs.
Add maple syrup and egg and mix well until a firm dough forms.
Roll out on parchment paper until about 3 mm thick. Place another sheet of parchment paper on top to cover then transfer dough to the fridge, ensuring it is on a completely flat surface, to chill for 15 minutes.
Use the Snackie lid to cut out the pie crusts then use Stampies to print your favourite animals onto each one.
Place a pie crust on top of each filled Snackie and bake for 30 minutes or until golden.
Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly before serving. Enjoy with fresh cream, natural yogurt, or custard.
