1/2 cup pumpkin seeds Natural Life
1/2 cup sunflower seeds Natural Life
1 cup large flaked coconut (unsweetened)
1/4 cup sesame seeds Natural Life
1/4 cup chia seeds Natural Life
1/4 cup hemp seeds Natural Life
a pinch of salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup honey (warmed for easier mixing- heat jar in a hot water bath)
-Preheat oven to 160°C
-Mix the seeds Natural Life, the coconut flakes and salt together in a medium bowl. Stir in vanilla and warm honey, until uniformly combined.
-Place a piece of parchment in a 20cm x 20cm pan (all the way up the sides too). Spray lightly with oil.
-Pour seed mix into lightly greased, parchment-lined pan and using a wet metal spatula, spread it out, into corners and edges and press down firmly until you have a compacted, smooth surface at a uniform depth.
-Place in the oven for 40-50 minutes. Check at 40 minutes. For a chewy consistency, take out at 40-45 minutes, for a crispier crunchy consistency, let it cook the full 50 -55 minutes. Keep in mind, all ovens are different, so heat may vary. The secret is….You want to take them out when they are perfectly golden before they get too dark (burned). So, keep a close eye on them after 40 minutes. If you take them out too early (before they are golden) they may be too chewy and sticky. Pay attention to the color.
-Remove from oven, and cool completely. You could place in the fridge to cool faster. When it’s completely cooled, take the parchment out of the pan, turn it over and remove parchment. Flip back over and cut into bars. Store at room temp!
