Blackberry Chia Crumble Bars

Labels: { , , , } | © 2019 | | © 2019 |

The base and topping are made with butter, spelt flour, almond, baking powder, a little coconut sugar, zero-calorie sweetener and lemon zest. The cookie dough is then enriched with an egg and perfectly firm to support the thick layer of berries, that are coated in coconut sugar, freshly squeezed lemon juice and chia seeds. You can easily make this all year round with seasonal fruit. The chia seeds helps to thicken the mixture and add another layer of nutrition. You can use 2 tablespoons of cornstarch instead.
