Difficulty Medium Prep Time 10 minutes Cook Time 30 minutes + chill time Ingredients Serves: 16 pieces 2 tsp (10 mL) coconut oil, melted 1 cup (250 mL) slivered almonds 1 cup (250 mL) sliced almonds 1 cup (250 mL) pumpkin seeds 3 tbsp (45 mL) sesame seeds 3 sheets of roasted sushi nori, crushed into small pieces, reserve some for garnish 6 tbsp (90 mL) brown rice syrup 3 tbsp (45 mL) honey 3 tbsp (45 mL) tamari Preparation Preheat oven to 320 degrees Fahrenheit. Prepare nonstick baking mat on baking traying, ready for use. Coat a large mixing bowl with the melted coconut oil, along with a spoon you plan to use for mixing. Lightly toast almonds and seeds and combine fully in bowl with the crushed nori. In a small saucepan combine brown rice syrup, honey, and tamari with a whisk. Heat, bring to a controlled gentle boil and cook for 5-6 minutes, or until the base has thickened, whisking often. Pour the thickened syrup over the almond mixture and combine thoroughly, ensuring that all the nuts and seeds have been coated and combined well. Pour the mixture immediately on top of a non-stick baking mat and tray, press firmly down, evenly, approximately 12” by 9” for the length and width. Sprinkle remaining garnishing nori on top. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until golden. Remove from oven and cool until easy to manage with hands. Cut into pieces and allow to cool fully. Enjoy immediately, or store in airtight container and enjoy later as a snack.
