Health Rating

Ingredients


1 cup Buckwheat
1 cup Pistachio nuts
1 cup Coconut flakes, unsweetened
1 cup Sliced almonds
1/2 cup Chia seeds, ground
1/2 cup Cacao nibs, raw
1/2 cup hulled Hemp seeds, shelled
1/2 tsp Salt (add if using unsalted pistachios)
1 cup Almond butter (plus 1 tbsp, divided)
1 cup Honey (or maple syrup)
1/2 cup Coconut sugar
2 cup Dark chocolate chips
1 tbsp Almond butter

Instructions


  1. Rub a 9x13 inch baking dish with coconut or olive oil.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the buckwheat, pistachios, coconut flakes, sliced almonds, chia seeds, cacao nibs, and hemp seeds. Add a pinch of salt if using raw pistachios.
  3. In a large pot, add the almond butter, honey, and coconut sugar. Set the pot over medium heat, stirring often until melted and smooth. Once the mixture starts to bubble, let it cook for 1 minute and then immediately remove from the heat.
  4. Working quickly, add the seed/nut mix to the almond butter mixture and stir until combined. Press into the prepared baking dish.
  5. Melt the chocolate chips with 1 heaping tablespoon almond butter in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds until melted and smooth or melt over low heat on the stove.
  6. Pour the melted chocolate/almond butter over the bars and spread in an even layer. Sprinkle the top with cacao nibs if desired.
  7. Cover and place in the fridge for 1-2 hours or until firm. Cut into bars, serve, and enjoy!
