Ingredients

Instructions

  • In your food processor combine the cashews, sunflower seeds, coconut and mint leaves.
  • Process the ingredients until they are your desired texture (I still like to have some larger chunks).
  • Transfer the ingredients to a large bowl.
  • Add the coconut oil and honey and stir well to combine.
  • Transfer the ingredients to a 9" x 9" pan.
  • Press the ingredients down with a spoon to form a flat, even layer.
  • Place the pan in the freezer for at least 2 hours.
  • Remove the pan from the freezer and cut the bars into desired sized pieces.
  • Serve and enjoy!

Notes

  1. These bars are quite crumbly which is why I recommend storing them in the freezer.
  2. I don't recommend using butter instead of coconut oil for these bars. 
  3. Nutritional values are an estimate and will vary depending on the exact ingredients used.
