Recipe by Rose's Granddaughter
This is so much healthier than the traditional short-cake and much richer. It is my favorite way to sneak the health benefits of nuts into my family's diet. I also pack this into lunches for a protein-filled snack. I have to credit Geema for inspiring me to create this.
- 3⁄4 cup almond meal (can buy already ground)
- 1⁄4 cup pecans
- 1⁄4 cup walnuts
- 1⁄2 cup crushed oatmeal cookie
- 1⁄2 cup sugar (try Splenda for lower sugar)
- 4 eggs
