Preparation Time: 45 minutes
- 2 cups finely chopped nuts (raw almonds, pecans, walnuts)
- 2 cups finely shredded unsweetened coconut
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons almond flour or coconut flour
- 1/2 cup melted coconut oil
- 1/2 cup honey or maple syrup
- 1/4 cup almond butter
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350° and line a 8×8 pan with parchment paper or use a silicone muffin pan. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine nuts, coconut, cinnamon, salt, chocolate chips, and almond or coconut flour.
In a small bowl mix together coconut oil, honey/maple syrup, and almond butter.
Pour coconut oil mixture on the dry ingredients and mix until fully incorporated. Add the egg and stir again.
Pour mixture into the prepared pan and press down to make very firm, as evenly as possible. This is an important step to get them to hold together.
Bake for 30 minutes, the edges will be slightly brown.
Once removed from the oven, press down again using a spatula.
Store covered at room temperature.
