This gorgeous Gluten-free Apple & Blueberry Pie makes a fantastic healthy dessert or tasty afternoon treat with a cup of tea. Eating apples regularly is a great way to keep a healthy heart, as they are rich in pectin, a type of fibre beneficial for lowering cholesterol levels. Apples and blueberries are full of immune-boosting vitamin C, and potent antioxidants that help fight free radicals that increase premature ageing and the risk of many chronic diseases.
