3 cups strawberries, sliced, reserving about 1/2 cup for garnish
1 cup rhubarb, diced into 1-inch pieces (fresh or frozen)
1/2 cup vegan sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 Tbl corn starch
pinch of sea salt
1/2 cup Erewhon Buckwheat Hemp Flakes
1/2 cup almond flour
1/2 cup all purpose gluten-free flour
1 Tbl hemp seeds
1 tsp cinnamon
1/3 cup vegan sugar
1/3 cup coconut oil
1/4 tsp sea salt
2 Tbl sliced almonds
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In an 8″x8″ pan, toss together filling ingredients, then set aside. In a food processor, pulse buckwheat hemp flakes, almond flour, gluten-free flour, and hemp seeds several times until flakes are slightly crushed. Add cinnamon, sugar, coconut oil, and sea salt and pulse until they begin to clump together. Sprinkle topping loosely over the filling mixture, leaving spaces around the edges of the pan, then sprinkle with sliced almonds. Cover with foil and place on cookie sheet to catch any drips. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until fruit filling is bubbly, then remove cover and bake an additional 10-15 minutes to crisp the top. Remove and let cool before serving.
