1 cup large flake rolled oats
½ cup almonds

Filling

4 cups berries, fresh or frozen
¼ cup agar flakes (high in calcium – in seaweed section at stores)
2 cups juice (I usually add a little water to the frozen blueberries/strawberries and then use that liquid)
1/3 cup arrowroot
¼ cup maple syrup – I’ve used half this and it’s still super yum.

Mix the arrowroot and maple syrup in a small bowl and set aside. Heat the liquid and add agar and stir. When the agar dissolves fully, add arrowroot and maple syrup mix.  Stir until slightly thick and then add the blueberries and mix well.
