INGREDIENTS
  • ½ cup almonds (raw or soaked and dehydrated)

  • ½ cup walnuts (raw or soaked and dehydrated)

  • cup pepitas (raw or soaked and dehydrated)

  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup

  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil

  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds

  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt

  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon or allspice

  • 1 heaping tablespoon goji berries

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 300F.

Step 2

Combine nuts and seeds in a small bowl.

Step 3

In a small saucepan, add the maple syrup and coconut oil. Whisk the maple syrup and oil over medium-low heat for about 30 seconds until coconut oil is melted; remove from heat.

Step 4

Mix in the salt, spices, and chia seeds; stir until fully combined.

Step 5

Pour the nuts and seed mixture into the saucepan; using a rubber spatula to scrape up all the syrup and oil, combine the mixture until fully coated and evenly distributed.

Step 6

Line a baking pan with parchment or Silpat; pour the mixture out on the pan and distribute in one even layer (you will not need the entire width of the pan).

Step 7

Roast in the oven for 10 minutes. Stir, and roast another 7 to 8 minutes.

Step 8

Remove from the oven; stir in the goji berries while the mixture is still warm. Let cool on the pan. Once hardened, break up any large chunks and store in a glass container for up to 5 days.
