These nutty clusters have become a staple in our house. And luckily they are pretty easy to make. You will need a food processor, but I find that sometimes the nuts dont get chopped as nicely before they just end up as flour so I usually chop them up a little bit first and only chop in the processor briefly.
Without further ado here is the recipe
1 cup raw almond
1/2 cup raw walnut halves
1/2 raw cashews
1/4-1/3 cup coconut flour
1/2 dried cranberries or raisins or any dried fruit you like
1/2 cup raw pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup raw sunflower seeds
1/2 cup coconut flakes
2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup of maple syrup
1/4 coconut oil (i like the virgin oil best)
Preheat the over to 275 F.
Take 1/2 a cup of the almonds and grind in the food processor until it becomes a powder. Place in a medium sized bowl.
Then if you need to chop the other 1/2 cup of almonds, cashews and walnuts by hand first do so and then pulse for a few seconds in the food processor. Keep them in larger pieces (some of this will end up powder and that’s ok) and add to your bowl.
Add the dried fruit, seeds and coconut flakes to the bowl and stir. Then add the cinnamon, maple syrup, vanilla and the melted coconut oil and mix until completely blended.
Transfer to a parchment lined baking sheet and spread out with a spatula to about 1 inch thick. Bake for about 15 mins and then turn the pan around and bake for another 18-20 minutes until you notice the edges starting to brown slightly.
Allow to cool completely before breaking into pieces and transferring to glass storage containers. It will keep in the fridge or you can even freeze it.
Serve over yogurt or on smoothie bowls with some yummy seasonal fruit.
I hope you enjoy!
