Last Update: September 28, 2022

Summer is the season of grilling, swimming, s’mores—and fresh berries! When the farmers markets abound with juicy blueberries, blackberries, and strawberries, whip up this gluten-free and Paleo-friendly pie. The maple crumble topping and almond flour crust recreate that classic All-American flavor, but if you’re feeling adventurous, sprinkle a few fresh thyme leaves and a pinch of cardamom into the filling for a surprising twist.
