Preparation Time: 10 minutes
- 1/2 cup cashews
- 1 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds (reserve 1/2 cup)
- 1 cup almonds
- 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
- 1 cup raisins
- 1/2 cup shredded coconut
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon ginger
- 1/2 cup honey or maple syrup
- 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
Preheat oven to 350 degrees ºF.
Process cashews, 1 cup pumpkin seeds, and almonds in a food processor until they resemble very fine crumbs. To this mixture, add the remainder of the pumpkin seeds, raisins, coconut, salt, cinnamon, ginger, sweetener of choice and coconut oil to your food processor. Pulse just until combined. Press into 9×13 pan lined with parchment paper.
Bake 18-20 minutes until golden brown. Wait until bars are completely cooled before cutting if you want them to stay together.
Note: Nuts can be raw or even better would be soaked and dehydrated.
