1 batch of cranberry chia seed jam
Crust and Topping:
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup oats

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Add all ingredients except the almond milk to a large bowl and mix to form a crumbly dough. 
  3. Slowly add the almond milk 1 tbsp at a time until the dough starts to stick together. I used 3 tbsp in total.
