Check Out the Recipe Below…
Shortbread Crust layer:
- 2 cups almond flour or almond meal
- 1 tablespoon coconut flour
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup
- ¼ teaspoon sea salt
- 2 cups frozen raspberries
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 2 tbsp raw honey* or maple syrup
- pinch of lemon zest
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1 cup walnuts or almonds
- 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
- 2 tbsp coconut sugar
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
Begin by making your filling, this has a jam consistency. In a medium saucepan, combine raspberries, honey, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Heat to a medium to medium-high heat, until mixture begins to bubble. Let bubble for 1-2 minutes, then lower heat to a simmer. While simmering, be sure to mash the berries with a wooden spoon. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, remove from heat. Add in chia seeds. Let cool for 5-10 minutes before transferring to a glass jar or dish, and place in the fridge to cool completely. This will take about 1 hour, but you can also make the filling and let sit overnight.
Now make the crust: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8×8 square pan with parchment paper and lightly grease. Combine all of the shortbread crust ingredients into a food processor and pulse until mixture is crumbly. Take mixture and carefully distribute over the parchment paper, pressing down firmly and evenly. Place inside the oven and bake for 13 minutes, or until lightly golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool for 20 minutes. Leave the oven hot.
While crust is cooling, make the crumb mixture. Combine all ingredients into your food processor and pulse for about 10 seconds, or until mixture is crumbly.
Once crust is cooled, spread the jam filling over the crust. Complete by topping with the crumb mixture. Now bake for 18-20 minutes, or until top is golden brown.
Remove from oven and cool completely. Once cooled, slice into squares.
