Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 315 degrees F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Additionally, line an 8x8 pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Place almonds, cashews, oats, pepitas, quinoa and flaxseeds (if not already toasted) on the pre-lined baking sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes ot until everything is nice and toasty.
  • As everything is toasting, whisk together the brown rice syrup, maple syrup and sea salt in a small bowl. Whisk until all ingredients are fully combined.
  • When the nuts and oats are finished toasting, remove sheet from the oven and carefully transfer all ingredients to a large bowl. Add the dried blueberries, cranberries, cherries and toasted coconut.
  • Pour the brown rice and maple syrup mixture over the nuts and seeds and mix until fully incorporated (it will be sticky).
  • Pour the mixture into your prepared 8x8 pan and press down firmly. I used the flat bottom of my measuring cup. Continue to press down until it is nice and packed down tight.
  • Place in the fridge for an hour or the freezer for at least 30 minutes to help firm up the bars and keep them together (I recommend the freezer).
  • Slice into 12 bars and serve.
