Recipe

2 cups almond meal (ground almonds)

1/2 cup mixed dried berries (e.g. blackberry, blueberry, raspberry)

1 egg

1/2 cup dried, unsweetened, coconut

1/2 cup mixed seeds (sesame, sunflower, pumpkin)

1/4 cup honey, unrefined sugar or granulated stevia

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp vanilla essence

2 tbsp oil (such as coconut, sunflower, rapeseed or melted butter)

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 180 °C

Mix all the above ingredients together in a bowl.

Tear off 2 pieces of baking paper, the size of a small baking tray. Place mixture in the centre of one sheet and cover with the other. Then using a rolling-pin, roll out mixture to about an inch thick.

Carefully peel off the paper and, using 1 of the pieces of greaseproof, place the rolled out mixture onto a baking tray, then pop into the oven for 10 minutes.

Using a pizza cutter or sharp knife, slice into the desired size, remove from parchment and allow to cool on a rack.
