  • 1/2 cup raw unsalted pecans pieces

  • 1/2 cup raw unsalted pumpkin seeds 

  • 1/2 cup raw unsalted sunflower seeds 

  • 1/4 cup hemp hearts 

  • 2 tbsp chia seeds

  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon 

  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract 

  • 1/4 tsp sea salt

1. Preheat oven to 250°F. In a food processor, pulse pecans, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, hemp and chia until broken down into very small pieces. Reserve mixture in processor.

2. To a small saucepan on low, add almond butter, coconut oil and honey; stir to melt and combine into a smooth mixture. Remove from heat and add cinnamon and vanilla.

3. Pour warm almond butter mixture over chopped nuts and seeds; pulse to combine.
