Filling

5 cups Berries, frozen
3/4 cup Agave nectar

 
Cook the berries and agave nectar on medium for an hour or two or until the berries and agave have thickened and reduced by close to half. Then let it sit on the stove for at least 30 mins to cool off.


Crust
3 cups blanched almond flour ( I buy mine at www.honeyvillefarms.com- I buy my organic coconut flour there tooJ

1/4 tsp baking soda and salt
4 T coconut oil
2 T Agave Nectar
 

Bake crust at 350 for 8 minutes

then fill crust with filling and bake at 300 for 10 minutes

 
Nutty Cranberry Delights with variations







 

(2 T.) Organic Blue Agave Nectar, (1/4 cup)Whole Foods Unsweetened Shredded Coconut, (2-4 T.) Dried Cranberries or Dried Cherries, (1/2 cup) Raw Cashews, (1/4 cup) Walnuts, 4 Medjool Dates (pitted).
 

Combine above ingredients in food processor…This may take a few minutes…
 

Make them Chocolate by adding Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips to the mix.

Or try any combo of nuts – I made them with Macadamia nuts instead of Cashews once – they were so rich!
 

Mold them into cookies – they don’t rise or flatten so whatever shape you make before placing them in the oven, you’ll end up with in the end:)
Another option is to use a rolling pin to flatten the dough and then use a pizza cutter to cut out squares - this will result in a thinner and crispier cookie:)
 

Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes or to your desired Toastiness.

 

Happy BakingJ

Pecan Bar



 
Cranberry Pecan Bar
Combine Natural Peanut Butter and Honey in a food processor.
Add a gluten free oats and pecans.
After thoroughly combined, spread batter onto wax paper and cover the top of the batter with cranberries, gently press in.
Refrigerated for a minimum of 15 minutes.
Then flip the bars over onto another piece of wax paper and cover the other side with Pecans, pressing in gently.

Cover both sides with wax paper and place the bars back in the fridge for at least an hour before cutting into squares or bars.

Enjoy and feel free to change the ingredients and make your own variationJ

Substitution ideas:
Agave Nectar or Pure Maple Syrup instead of Honey
Almond or Sunflower Seed Butter instead of Peanut Butter.
Dried Cherries or dried unsweetened coconut flakes instead of or in addition to the dried cranberries

Have FunJ
