  • 1 cup almond meal
  • ½ cup pecans

  • cup honey
  • 1 tbs almond milk
  • ¼ cup pecans for topping
  • For The Berries
  • 2 cups berries frozen
  • 2 tbs honey
  • ¼ cup chia seeds

  • Cook a few more minutes until the berries are mashed and turn the heat to low. Cook a couple more minutes stirring frequently. Turn off and remove from heat. Let sit.
  • You want the berry mixture to be starting to get sticky but no burned, jam-like but a bit runnier.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8x4 dish and portion ¾ of the crust mixture into the bottom. Press down until flat.
