Homemade Nut Bars



(Select any type of nuts you’d like, but this recipe includes raw organic cashews, almonds, pecans and pistachios.)
*1 cup cashew nuts
*1 cup almonds
*1 cup pecans
*1 cup pistachios
*1 cup hemp seeds for added protein  (you can add any mixture of small seed you’d like ex: sesame seeds or hemp)
*1/2 cup organic/raw honey
*1/3 cup maple syrup
*1/4 tsp salt
*1 tsp vanilla
1. Preheat oven to 375, spread nuts out on a cookie sheet that is dusted lightly with oil of preference. Bake for 5-7 minutes then transfer in to a medium to large bowl with any seeds.
2. Now here’s the tricky part and might shy you away from trying this recipe, but it’s worth it! Using a baking thermometer (or one that reaches 260 degrees) is important. This process is what dictates the firmness of your bars an keeps them held together. Bring the liquids to a boil on medium heat and be sure it reaches 260 degrees.
3. Once the two steps above have been completed you’ll pour your liquid mixture into the bowl with the nuts and seeds stirring until everything is coated nice and evenly.
4. After mixture is complete spread back out on your cookie sheet (you can oil it a little again) and flatten it out with your spatula. Lightly coat the spatula with coconut oil  to keep the mixture from sticking.
5. Allow to cool to room temperature for about 20 minutes then enjoy!
