INGREDIENTS:

 

-3/4 cup raw almonds
-1 cup raw unsalted cashews
-1/4 cup pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
-1/4 cup sunflower seeds
-1/2 cup shredded/flaked organic coconut
-1/4 cup organic/raw honey
-1/4 cup extra virgin organic coconut oil
-1 flat teaspoon ground cinnamon
-1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
-1/2 teaspoon Himalayan sea salt

 

Method:
Pre-heat oven to 160 degrees fan forced and line a baking try with grease proof paper
Put almonds and cashews in Ninja blender/thermomix or similar, and pulse about 4 times or until you get a chunky consistency- you want to retain the texture and only break the nuts up a bit
Pour into a heat proof bowl
Add pepitas, sunflower seeds and coconut to the bowl and mix well
Meanwhile put coconut oil, honey, sea salt, cinnamon and vanilla extract into a small saucepan and melt together for a few minutes on a low heat
Add the melted ingredients to the dry and combine well
Pour mixture onto prepared tray and spread it out to cover the whole tray so it is nice and thin
Put in the oven for around 25mins or until golden brown.
 You will need to stir the mixture around on the tray about half way through cooking so it doesn’t overcook on the edges.
Leave to completely cool, then break up into chunks & store in an airtight container
See, it’s easy peasy!!
Enjoy!
