- 2 cups almonds – chopped
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 4 cups unsweetened dried coconut
- ½ cup honey or maple syrup
- 2 eggs
- Optional: handful of raisins or dried cranberries
Soak almonds with the salt in water overnight.
Preheat oven to 250 degrees F.
Once the almonds have finished soaking drain and bake on a cookie sheet for 2 ½ hours or until crispy. (I will soak and bake several pounds at a time and then keep in freezer until ready to use.) Once almonds have finished baking, heat oven to 350 F.
Mix remaining ingredients together along with the almonds and pat into a (8×11 or so) glass baking dish tightly.
Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Cool completely before chilling. Cut into squares and wrap individually or store in an air tight container. Enjoy!!
