Healthy Raspberry Shortbread Slice

Christmas is literally around the corner! 
Time to get into the spirit and create some impeccable treats for friends and family. 
This healthy shortbread with a raspberry jam is a major hit in my house!
1 cup almond meal
3/4 cup buckwheat flour
2 ½ tbsp. coconut oil, melted
1 egg 
1 tsp cinnamon 
3 ½ tbsp pure maple syrup or coconut nectar

Raspberry filling: 
2 cups frozen raspberries 
½ tbsp. chia 
½ a lemon, juiced
2 tbsp pure maple syrup or coconut nectar

Preheat an oven to 150 degrees, fan-forced and line a small rectangular dish with baking paper. 
Place all the shortbread ingredients in a small bowl and mix until a dough forms. If too dry, add a tbsp water. If too wet, add a small amount of almond meal. 
Press a bit less than half of the dough in the dish. Bake for approximately 12 minutes or until very lightly golden. 
Meanwhile, place the raspberry filling ingredients in a small saucepan over low to medium heat. Stir until the liquid and all the ingredients are warmed through. 
Mash thoroughly with the back of a fork. 
Roll out the remaining shortbread dough and use a cookie cutter to cut into stars.
Pour the raspberry filling over the base and then on top, arrange the shortbread stars. 
Place back in the oven for 10 minutes.
