Despite its name, this pie is high-fat! If you find yourself avoiding too much protein for some reason, and don’t mind a few extra carbs in total, I recommend you go for this low-protein high-fiber pie.
The idea for the pie arose during my little experiment with protein fasting, which originates from Dave Asprey‘s Bulletproof diet and biohacking. While I didn’t like the experiment itself too much, I am happy to have invented the dessert that suits avoiding too much protein so well.
When I started designing the recipe, I thought this would turn out as a crumbly, boring … something. But, as I went, I realised that if I combined the ingredients in just the right way, they can make an awesome pie. So happy about the result, I’m putting the recipe up, which wasn’t really my initial intention.
What significantly helps holding the whole thing together, are the xanthan gum and psyllium husks. Another thing I wouldn’t skip is the IMO syrup. Full of fiber, this liquid sweetener hardens when it heats and cools down, so it does help holding the pie together. I wouldn’t recommend skipping these. But if you do, do not be ashamed to let me know how the pie turned out. Even if crumbly, it should still taste delicious. All that coconut, you know, combines with the sour-sweet taste of berries so well!
