Lots of love Directions – Place almonds, pecans, walnuts and coconut flakes onto a sheet of aluminum foil and place it over a cookie pan. Set your oven to Broil at 525 degrees or so and roast your ingredients for 5-10 minutes or until coconut flakes are slightly browned maybe blackened. – While that is happening, in a bowl throw in your almond butter and coconut oil and nuke in the microwave for about 1:30 – 2 minutes or until completely liquefied. – Once you have roasted the nuts and coconut flakes, toss them into a food processor until they are finely chopped. Make sure you smell the mix, the smell is pretty much God’s gift to Earth. – In a large bowl mix all of your ingredients and make sure to add vanilla, honey and dried berries of your choice. – ***If you prefer more of a granola consistency you may add the almond meal. If not it’s all good too. – Mix everything with a large spoon. Mix likes there’s no tomorrow. – Grab a pan and spread your mix evenly and stick it in your freezer until frozen. – Once frozen you can cut it into granola shape bars with a large knife or pizza cutter. – Enjoy!
