  • Total Time: 30 minutes


  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • ½ cup raw cashews
  • ½ cup raw walnuts
  • ½ cup raw pumpkin seeds

  1. Preheat the oven to 300 °F and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  2. Add the almonds, cashews, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, ½ cup of semi-sweet baking chips, ½ cup of coconut, vanilla and sea salt to a food processor. Pulse 8-10 times until the nuts and seeds are broken down but still have some big chunks. Place in a large bowl and set aside.
