Crustless blueberry pie

Another wonder of summer: berries! Now that it is berry season, it is time to make all kinds of berry treats (yummy!). And here is the first berry treat of the season. The good part about this pie is that it is simple, delicious, low in carbs(!), and did I say, delicious? I adapted the recipe from this one here, and as you can see you can substitute your berry of choice. I also opted to swap sugar for maple, to give it a more subtle sweetness. 

What you need?
1 pint or 12oz blueberries
2 eggs
1/3 cup milk
1/2 cup yogurt container (greek, vanilla or plain)
1/2 cup maple syrup or 1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp almond extract
What to do?
Pre-heat oven to 350F degrees. Lightly grease a pie plate.
In a small bowl, combine dry ingredients together (flour, baking powder, salt, sugar-if using it). In a large bowl, mix wet ingredients (egg, milk, yogurt, vanilla, almond, and maple, if using it), until it is a smooth mixture. Add dry ingredients to wet mixture and combine lightly until smooth, but be careful not over beat. Add the berries to the mixture, and pour in pie plate. Make sure that berries are evenly distributed on the baking dish. Bake for 35-40 minutes, until top is lightly golden and/or knife inserted in the center comes out clean. 
This is a super simple crustless(!) recipe that will be sure to satisfy you! Enjoy!
