  • Cook's Notes:

    Use fresh or frozen blueberries (thawed) as desired. Adjust amount based on your preferences and the type of blueberries used. Wild blueberries have more concentrated flavor and color than domestic, so you’d need less. You may also substitute or mix and match with Saskatoon serviceberries, black currants, bilberries, huckleberries, blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, or any other berries instead.

    The stevia can be partially or wholly substituted with about 1 cup powdered erythritol or another sweetener.

    Instead of flax seeds, you can use the same amount of ground chia seeds, up to 2 tablespoons Ener-G(R) Egg Replacer(TM), or whatever you like to use in place of 4 eggs.
