Ah, the smell of a cobbler or pie as it’s almost finished baking in the oven is so enticing. Pies are especially great for the summertime, where berries and summer squash can have the limelight inside a yummy crust. Usually, cobblers and pies are created with milk and butter, but that doesn’t have to be the case. Check out these 10 cobblers and pies to bake for your summer potluck:
1. Vegan Chocolate Banana Cream Pie
This basic banana cream pie features fresh ripe bananas, almond milk, and vanilla pudding. Then, you choose a dark chocolate or coconut whipped cream, or a combination of both.
2. Blueberry Pie With a Heart-Healthy Crust
The ingredients for the filling of this pie are similar to a classic blueberry pie. However, the crust is made with whole wheat pastry flour, sunflower oil, and soy milk – no butter or dairy milk required.
3. Raw Strawberry Chocolate Coconut Pie
This pie has many tasty layers and flavors going on, and it’s hard to believe there’s actually no baking required for this one. Start with a macadamia crust, then make a chocolate layer. Next, add strawberries and a coconut cream topping.
4. The World’s Healthiest Zucchini Skillet Cobbler
Zucchini may be the star here, but this healthy zucchini skillet dish is a sweet cobbler, not a savory one. Since the zucchini is cooked in (xylitol) caramel, it takes on a surprisingly sweet and delicious taste. This cobbler is complete with a delicious topping of almond meal, coconut, and vanilla. Your guests will definitely be surprised at the sweetness in this dish.
5. Vegan Apple-Of-My-Eye Pie With Gluten-Free Crust
This delectable apple pie has a nutty, buttery flavor and delicate texture. The filling is made with lemon juice, pure maple syrup, cinnamon, nutmeg, and apples, of course! The best part about this pie is the crust, which is gluten-free because it is made with almond meal.
6. Coconut Lime Cream Pie
This refreshing, yet rich pie is perfect for summer. It features a sweetened pistachio crust filled with coconut lime custard and topped with coconut milk cream.
7. Seasonal Strawberry Rhubarb Pie
There’s something about the combination of strawberry and rhubarb that is spectacular — the two are made for each other! Bake this pie and you’ll agree.
8. Vegan Cherry Pie With Hemp Seeds and Walnut
The ingredients in this pie are scarce, yet come together so well for this cherry pie. To make it, all you need is walnuts, hemp seeds, coconut oil, a liquid sweetener, and fresh, organic pitted cherries.
9. Chocolate-Coated Key Lime-Coconut Creme Pie
This pie is a good choice to make for people who are both lovers of chocolate and key-lime pie. You get the best of both worlds in this refreshing dessert.
10. Vegan Shepherd’s Pie
Don’t forget about savory pies! Though sweet pies containing fruit are stars for summer, mix things up with your pie spread and make this Vegan Shepherd’s Pie. Meat-eaters will love its hearty texture.
