Recipe Notes

As you can see, the Just Cashew Meal isn't exactly finely ground and therefore the crust is a bit crumbly. I personally really like the texture, however if you want a more refined crust, you can substitute any grain-free flour (coconut, almond, etc) for 1/4 to 1/2 of the ground cashews.
