1 ½ Cup Pecans, Chopped

2 Cup Unsweetened coconut flakes, tightly packed

Directions:

1.  Heat your oven to 375F degrees and line an 8x13 inch pan with

parchment paper.


2.  Place the nuts and coconut flakes on 3 separate small baking

sheets. Bake until golden brown and toasted. The coconut will only

take 2-4 minutes, the almonds about 3-5 minutes and the chopped pecans

about 7-10 minutes. Let cool completely. Reduce the oven temperature

to 350F.


3.  In a large bowl, whisk together the egg , cocoa powder, and erythritol.


4.  In a separate small, microwave-safe bowl, melt the almond

butter, vanilla extract, sugar free syrup, and coconut oil until

smooth, about 30 seconds. Whisk into the egg mixture until well

combined.


5.  Add in all the nuts, hemp hearts, coconut, cinnamon, and salt

and stir until well combined. Finally, stir in the chocolate chips.


6.  Press very firmlyinto the prepared pan.  Bake until the top just

feels set, about 17 minutes at 350F degrees. Let cool COMPLETELY to

room temperature in the pan.


7.  Cut into 15 even sized bars. **To make your own combine ¼ Cup sugar free chocolate chips with 2

Tbsp butter and 2 Tbsp coconut oil and melt until smooth (microwave 30

sec at a time then stir and repeat until smooth).
