Nutty Bars
Photo and recipe courtesy of Leaves of Life


  • 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 2 cups nuts of your choice (I use raw nuts so oils are intact)
  •  2/3 cup sunflower butter or nut butter
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  •  3 tbsp. honey (I used 1-1/2 tbsp and some stevia to taste)
  •  1 tbsp. vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp. ground flax seeds (or chia)
  • 10 ounce dark chocolate, melted (I tried using 88% Endangered Species and added stevia to my batch (not the batch shown), but it hardened and cracked when I tried to slice–maybe should not have let it harden before slicing–or added coconut butter?)


  1.  Pulse nuts in food processor until like coarse sand
  2. Add all other ingredients except chocolate and blend thoroughly
  3. Pour onto wax paper or foil lined pan and smooth to the corners
  4. Refrigerate 1-2 hours until set
  5. Pour melted chocolate on top and chill 5-10 minutes
  6.  Lift from pan and cut into bars
  7. Refrigerate until ready to enjoy (keeps their shape)
