These patriotic mixed berry pies made with almond flour crust is the ultimate summertime treat. Cinnamon lends this buttery pie a touch of warmth that would go perfectly with a dollop of whipped cream or keto ice cream.

Tips & Tricks

Skip the cinnamon and add a teaspoon of finely grated fresh ginger to the berry mixture to add warmth and barely-there spiciness to these mini pies. Make sure to find the best berries possible: sweet, ripe, and fresh. However, frozen berries can also do the trick. The stars and stripes topping gives these pies their patriotic look but also helps steam escape and berry juice to thicken. But to prevent a soggy pie, you can also add a teaspoon or two of glucomannan powder to the berry mixture.

I made this for my parents on Fourth of July and they couldn’t stop eating it even before the pie was baked! I added lemon zest and juice to the berries and ran them through the food processor to make it a berry purée. It is an amazing recipe!
