Chocolate and Berry Pies

To make the pastry:

In a bowl put:

75 grams of melted butter

1 egg

2 tsps of brown sugar

1 tsp vanilla essence

Stir well.


2/3 cup of almond flour/ground almonds

1/3 cup of ground walnuts

1/2 cup gf flour

2 tsps baking powder

1 tbsp cocoa powder

Mix well.

Press the dough into silicone muffin trays (or similar), so the dough lines the sides with a centre for the filling.

Spoon the filling (chia jam) into the dough.

Roll small pieces of dough into balls, then flatten with your hand. Place them on the top of the pies.

Bake in the oven on 180 degrees, for 15 minutes or until cooked.

To make the Chia Jam:

Boil berries of your choice and add 3 tbsp of chia seeds.. Allow ten minutes to set. Texture should be thick, if too runny, add more chia seeds and allow to set for a further ten minutes.
