“Kindness” Bars

Fruit-And-Nut-Energy-Bar
1/3 c pure honey
2 Tbsp coconut flour
1 Tbsp almond butter (or any all natural nut butter)
1 1/3 c coarsely chopped nuts
½ c chopped dried fruit
1 c unsweetened coconut flakes

Preheat oven to 300ºF

Line 8×8 or 9×9 baking dish with parchment paper, leaving ends hanging
over two sides.
In a large mixing bowl, combine honey, coconut flour, and nut butter. Stir until well mixed.
Add nuts and dried fruit to mixture. Stir well.
Add coconut flakes to mixture. Stir well.
Place mixture in baking dish. Press firmly so that ingredients hold together.
Bake 20 minutes.
Cool to room temperature. Then place in refrigerator.
Cut into bars. Wrap individually, if desired. Store in refrigerator.

Notes:

Can use any combination of fruit and nuts: almonds, cashews, pistachios, flax seeds, pumpkin seeds, golden raisins, papaya, cherries. Try to use unsalted, raw nuts and
as unsweetened dried fruit (most fruits do have added sugar).
Chop nuts and fruits, then measure. This should be a “rough chop”—not tiny pieces.
Maple syrup or agave are not great substitutions for the honey. The bars do not bind as well!
Bars will bind and stick together much better after refrigeration.

Yield: 8 bars
