Ingredients:

Ingredients::

  • 1 cup Old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 cup almond meal (almond flour or ground almonds)
  • 2 Tbs almond butter
  • 1 Tbs ground flaxseed
  • 4 large Medjool dates (pits removed)
  • 1/4 cup water

Special Equipment:

 

Preparation Method:

If necessary, remove the pits from the dates and dice into small (1/4 inch pieces). Place the dates in a small bowl and cover with 1/4 cup hot water. Let the dates soak for at least 10 minutes to soften.

Place the oats, almond meal, almond butter, and flaxseed into a food processor and pulse several times to break down the oats. Add the dates and soaking liquid and process on high for 30 seconds to a minute, scraping down the sides as necessary. The mixture should come together and form a ball in your food processor.

Evenly spread the mixture into a pie pan or tart pan. If the mixture is sticking to your hands, dip your fingers in water to make it easier to spread. If you are creating a pie that does not require baking, you can pre-bake (blind bake) the crust in a 350° F oven for 15 minutes.
