Ingredients
 

  • 50 g of Almonds
  • 50 g of Raw Cashew nuts
  • 40 g of Sunflower seeds
  • 30 g of pumpkin seeds
  • 30 g 1/4 cup desiccated coconut
  • 100 g 1/2 cup dried fruit (we used figs and unsulphured apricots) – cut into small pieces, with figs remove the hard tops first, could easily use currants or raisins instead
  • 20 g of Goji Berries
  • 4 tbsp coconut oil melted
  • 40 g 1/4 cup 100% all natural almond butter (or sunflower to make nut free)
  • 60 ml 1/4 cup maple syrup (or brown rice syrup)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp fine grain rock or sea salt

Instructions
 

  • Place almonds, cashew nuts and sunflower seeds in the food processor and blitz until finely chopped.
  • Remove blended almonds, cashews and sunflower seeds and put in a large bowl
  • Chop the dried fruit into small pieces, with the figs remove the hard tops first, you could easily use currants or raisins here instead.
  • Add in the dried fruit, desiccated coconut and the pumpkin seeds, and mixed well
  • Combine the maple (or brown rice syrup) in a jug or bowl and combine with melted coconut oil and almond (or sunflower seed) butter along with vanilla extract.
  • Pour wet ingredients on top of the dry ingredients and stir well to combine. Place mixture in a 6- 8 inch square tray lined with baking parchment (depending on desired thickness..I used a 6 inch square loose bottom tin).
  • Place in the fridge to set for four hours before slicing. Store in a sealed tight container in the fridge for up to one week or freeze for up to one month.
