Servings 16 pie bars

Ingredients

Crust Layer:

  • 2 cup blanched almond flour
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1/3 cup raw honey
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil melted/cooled
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon

Fruit filling:

  • 1 1/2 cup raspberries or any berry
  • 1 tbsp raw honey
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp coconut flour

Crumb topping:

  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
  • 1/4 cup chopped dates
  • 1/4 cup remaining crust layer crumbled

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350° and line a 9 inch square pan with parchment paper.

  2. In a mixing bowl, combine almond flour, coconut flour, vanilla, cinnamon, honey and coconut oil. Stir together until it is well combined.

  3. Press the dough (set aside 1/4 of dough to be used for the topping) into the bottom of the pan and bake for 10 minutes.

  4. Now, make the filling. In a sauce pan combine the raspberries, honey, coconut flour and coconut oil. Cook over medium heat, pressing the raspberries to break down. Cook for 2-3 minutes, until the mixture is thick and no fully formed raspberries remain. It should look like a jam. Transfer the mixture into a small bowl and refrigerate until needed.
  5. Once the crust is cooked let cool for 10 minutes. While that is cooling add chopped walnuts and chopped dates to the remaining 1/4 cup of dough.
  6. Spread the raspberry sauce on the crust then sprinkle the dough mixture evenly on top. Press down gently to make sure it stays in place. Bake for 15 minutes.
  7. Let pie bars cool, cut into squares, and store in the fridge for up to one week!
