For the jam:
For the base:
For the crumb:
Place the strawberries, lemon juice, zest and maple syrup in a saucepan over medium-high heat and bring to a simmer. Cook for 10-15 minutes, until the strawberries are soft. Mash gently with the back of a wooden spoon and take off heat. Stir in the chia seeds and leave aside to cool.
Preheat the oven to 350F/180C. In a food processor, combine the almond flour, coconut oil and salt and process until the texture resembles breadcrumbs. With the motor running, pour in the water and process until the mixture comes together into a dough.
Line a 9x9 inch baking tin with parchment paper and spread the mixture on top, pressing down firmly and evenly. Place in the oven and cook for 10-12 minutes, until the base is a golden color. Let cool.
Make the crumb by combining the walnuts, coconut, maple syrup, coconut oil and salt in a food processor and blitzing until you get a fine mixture.
When the base has cooled, spread the jam mixture on top and cover with the crumb. Place in the oven and cook for 12-15 minutes, until it is golden on top. Let cool completely before cutting.
