Crust Directions:
Preheat oven to 350. Line an 8×8 baking pan with parchment paper so you can easily lift the bars out once they’ve cooled.
Take butter and agave mixing together with an electric mixer until a creamy texture appears. Add flour mixing until well distributed.
Take dough in baking pan and press with your hands until it evenly covers the bottom of the dish. Bake for 20 minutes until slightly golden brown.
Directions for filling:
Take blueberries in food processor and blend. Add agave,flax meal mixed with water, lime juice + zest, and flour to the bowl stirring to combine. Pour the mixture into crust (may appear loose, mixture will thicken) and bake for 25 – 30 minutes. Let cool then place in the refrigerator for 4 hours cooling completely.
Note:
You can garnish with fresh blueberries, blackberries, or strawberries, and a lime slice. You can also use any berries you have on hand mixing and matching the combination to appeal to your favorites.  These bars are sweet and tart.  If you prefer a sweeter bar simply add more agave or drizzle more agave on top of the cooled bars before serving.
