2 cups raw almonds or 1 cup almonds
1 cup cashews or any nut mixture you prefer
1⁄2 cup ground chia or flax seeds (1⁄4 cup whole seed chia or flax equals 1⁄2 cup ground)
1⁄2 cup shredded unsweetened, unsulfured coconut and extra to press on top
1⁄2 cup unsalted almond butter
1⁄4 cup quinoa flakes, optional
1⁄2 teaspoon sea salt
1⁄4 teaspoon cinnamon
1⁄2 cup virgin coconut oil
1 tablespoon organic vanilla flavor or vanilla extract
25 drops liquid stevia or powdered stevia to taste or 1/8 cup xylitol or more to taste



Place almonds, chia or flax, shredded coconut, almond butter, quinoa flakes, salt and cinnamon in a food processor. Pulse briefly, about 7 seconds, you want to keep it chunky. In a small sauce pan, melt coconut oil over very low heat, if it needs to be melted. Remove coconut oil from stove and add vanilla and stevia &/or xylitol into oil and stir well until dissolved and well combined. Add coconut oil mixture to food processor and pulse until ingredients form a coarse paste. Use 2 pieces of parchment paper to crisscross the bottom of an 8 x 8 glass-baking dish. Press nut mixture evenly into dish. Press extra shredded coconut onto the top of the bars if desired, optional. Or on the stovetop in a small saucepan melt an unsweetened chocolate bar and sweeten with stevia and vanilla to taste for a Kaufmann 2 option.
