Breakfast Bars (gluten free)

I made these when I was doing the detox diet and they were a great thing to grab in the morning for breakfast or really anytime you want a high protein healthy snack.

Breakfast Bars
1 cup blanched almond flour
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • ½ cup pumpkin seeds
  • ½ cup sunflower seeds
  • ¼ cup blanched slivered almonds
  • ¼ cup raisinsIn a food processor combine almond flour and salt.  Pulse in coconut oil, honey, water and vanilla. Pulse in coconut, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, almond slivers and raisins.  Press dough into an 8 x 8 inch baking dish, wetting your hands with water to pat dough down. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes.  Make sure that you cool them completely before cutting otherwise it will make them crumbly. 

The next time I make these I plan on using other fruits like dried cranberries in place of raisins and maybe some other kind of nut or seed.  We will see!
