This Paleo blueberry pie crisp is sweetened with local maple syrup made with delicious pecans, almond flour, and coconut flour. It is gluten-free, grain-free and dairy-free. And you can choose to make it without the bottom pie crust, making it with just the filling and crumb topping (which will also make this recipe vegan!)
Together, John and I created this Paleo Blueberry Pie Crisp for a family Christmas gathering! John made the pie crust, I made the nut topping and we filled it with the best organic blueberries that we picked from down the street over the summer and froze!
Over the summer, John and I decided to stock up on fruit to hopefully get us through winter. About a mile down the road from us is an organic blueberry you-pick. So we took a stroll down the hill, and we were the only ones there!
Blueberries are superfoods! High in antioxidants, which have been shown to protect our bodies against aging, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, memory loss, and cancer.
Perfect for baking pies, making smoothies, ice cream, and just everyday eating!
John and I walked out of there with 90 lbs of blueberries! And walked a mile back home! I washed them, put them on baking trays, put them in the freezer for about 30 minutes, and then transferred to bags and froze them for later use!

Hi, I’m Ally. The creator of Ally’s Paleo Eats. The person who never thought she would know how to actually cook until it came down to having to actually learn.. Especially with being in a relationship with someone who LOVES food, and someone who has an autoimmune disease. I started searching for different recipes on Pinterest. Cooking definitely did not come naturally to me… I threw out a lot of recipes, not because they probably weren’t good, but because I was too hard on myself. I actually hated to cook. Absolutely hated it. But, every night I’d come home, dread cooking dinner, just to do it all over again the following night. I then started to get more into meal-prepping, and cooking in bulk on Sundays and then freezing food.
After realizing what a difference this diet had on me, not only physically but mentally, the positive outcomes it had on my boyfriend (now husband), understanding what foods I can and can’t eat, and getting over the money factors of buying higher quality ingredients, I really started to enjoy learning new recipes and becoming more knowledgable about ingredient substitutions.
Why We Follow Paleo
John has Ulcerative Colitis which is an inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) that causes long-lasting inflammation and ulcers (sores) in his digestive tract. Ulcerative colitis affects the innermost lining of your large intestine and rectum. He has suffered from this for most of his life.
So, in 2016 John and I finished building our house and began living on our own. Finally, we decided, this is a fresh start for us, for our health. and for our relationship. We started looking into diets that would accompany both of us. From Vegan to Vegetarian to Dairy-Free and then to a High Meat Diet (Before Keto was a big trend!). Some of the diets, we probably didn’t stick too long enough to reap the benefits- but they didn’t all suit John and I! Many countless hours of internet research, listening to well-known doctors and podcasts, they all had different input. After listening and reading about many holistic doctors, we started to look more into the Paleo diet.
