Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    1 cup old-fashioned oats

    1 cup unsweetened flaked coconut

    1/2 cup of your favourite nuts, coarsely chopped (I used almonds and cashews!)

    1/2 cup ground flaxseed

    1/4 cup sesame seeds

    3 tablespoons of wheat germ

    1 tablespoons whole wheat pastry flour (if you cannot have gluten, substitute with rice flour!)

    1/4 teaspoon salt

    1 teaspoon vanilla extract

    1/3 cup packed coconut oil

    1/2 cup honey

    optional: 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips

Tips

Line your container with parchment paper so the squares come out easier.

You can also freeze these. They last about 3-4 days in the fridge, but can last months in the freezer. I also like to eat them frozen! Try not to leave them outside the fridge for too long as they will become brittle and crumble.


Directions

In a large bowl, combine oats, coconut, flour, flaxseed, wheat germ, nuts, sesame seeds, salt and chocolate chip, mixing very thoroughly until combined. In a small bowl, combine honey and coconut oil, microwaving on high powder for 10 seconds at a time, stirring after each increment, until coconut oil is melted. Stir vanilla extract into coconut oil mixture, then pour the entire mix over the dry ingredients.

Using a large wooden spoon, stir until all of the ingredients are wet, using your hands and bring it together like a dough. Press the dough into the pan, pressing with the back of the spoon to smooth the top. Place in the refrigerate for 90 minutes, then remove and cut into squares.
