Ingredients:

  • 1½ C Almonds

  • ¼ TSP Cinnamon
  • 4 TBSP Maple syrup
  • 1 TBSP Coconut oil, melted
  • 2-3 Drops liquid monk fruit (optional)

Directions:

  1. In a food processor, process almonds until fine and crumbly. Add coconut flakes and continue to process until everything is well combined, but not oily. Then add sea salt, ginger, cinnamon maple syrup and coconut oil and pulse until everything is thoroughly combined and holds together when pressed between fingers. The goal with this mixture is a cookie-dough like texture. Taste, and add a few drops of liquid monk fruit if looking to boost sweetness.
  2. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper, and press mixture in the bottom. It should be about 1 inch thick. Leave enough parchment on the sides to use to pull out the bar.
