Ingredients

1 1/2 cups raw cashews 

1/2 cup raw almonds 

1 cup raw unsweetened coconut flakes 

1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon sesame seeds 

4 tbsps. hemp seeds 

1/4 cup cooked quinoa 

1/4 cup tahini 

1 tsp. kosher salt 

1/4 tsp. nutmeg 

1/2 cup agave nectar 

1 tbsp. BareOrganics Coconut Oil 

1 tsp. vanilla extract 

1/2 cup BareOrganics Goji Berries

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Coat an 8x8 inch baking pan with cooking spray and then line with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Toast the cashews, almonds, coconut flakes, 1/4 cup sesame seeds, and 3 tablespoons hemp seeds on a baking sheet, stirring occasionally, until golden brown, about 8–12 minutes. Let cool slightly.
  3. Add the toasted nuts and seeds, plus the quinoa, tahini, nutmeg, and salt to a food processor or high powdered blender. Process until finely chopped.
  4. Bring the agave nectar and the coconut oil to a boil in a small saucepan. Cook, stirring, for about 1 minute. Remove and stir in the vanilla. Pour over the cashew/seed mixture and stir to coat. Stir in the goji berries.
  5. Press the mixture firmly into the prepared 8x8 pan with the back of a greased measuring cup or wet hands. Top the bars with the remaining 1 tablespoon each sesame and hemp seeds. Press the seeds gently to adhere.
  6. Transfer to the oven and bake until golden brown, 25–30 minutes. Let cool, then cut into the bars.
  7. Store in an airtight container at room temp or in the fridge.
