Berry Chia Pie

1 cup pitted dates
1 cup slivered almonds or pecans
3 T flaxseed meal
6 cups mixed fresh berries, divided
1/2 c chia seeds
1/2 c unsweetened juice (can use white grape or blackberry or ??)
2 T honey
2 t vanilla extract

Cut dates in half and place in a food processor. Pulse until chopped into small pieces. Add pecans or almonds and flaxseed meal and process until mixture is finely ground and begins to clump together. You may have to stop and scrape down the sides of the bowl. Put the mixture into a 9" pie pan and press down to evenly cover the bottom and sides of the pie pan. Set aside.

Wipe out the food processor and add half of the berries, all of the chia seeds, the juice, honey and vanilla. Process until fairly smooth. Transfer to a bowl and stir in remaining berries. Pour into the pie plate. Cover and refrigerate until chilled and chia seeds have thickened the filling, at least 4 hours.
