Blackberry Hand Pies // With Summertime often 'on the go', these hand pies are the perfect portable snack that's both tasty and healthy! Made with only high quality ingredients these are perfect for the whole family! | Tried and TastyYou all know my LOVE of Oregon (specifically Portland). La-la-la-la-LOVE Oregon. When I was given the opportunity to develop a recipe using Oregon Blackberries I couldn’t have been any more ecstatic! Do you want to know what the best thing about berries are? You can indulge in the sweet, natural taste of raspberries and blackberries without any guilt! It’s been said that: “Oregon berries are so filled with antioxidants that they’re like a tiny army in the battle for your health.” Doesn’t that sound something you’d like fighting for you? I know I certainly do! Did you know that more than 90% of the berries grown in Oregon are flash frozen within hours of being picked at the peak of ripeness, locking in maximum nutrition, taste and color?  We are in that peak right NOW and what better way to utilize the delicious fruits than in this fab new recipe?

As much as it doesn’t feel like it, we STILL have some summer left! I have to keep telling myself this. I always get so sad when August rolls around because it feels like the close of summer comes all too quickly. With that said, there is still plenty of fun to be had in the coming weeks. In fact, I’ve got a busy month myself. My sister is getting married NEXT WEEK. Eek. Hard to believe it. Lots of craziness of making sure everything is in order and next week will be even more hectic. When you’re on the go it’s easy to grab whatever you can get your hands on out the door. These hand pies are a healthy and delicious option! Made with top quality ingredients you can feel good feeding the whole family these sweet little babies!

Crust
  1. 2 1/2 c. almond meal/flour
