Method

  1. Line a baking dish with parchment paper and preheat your oven to 350F.

2. Place your almonds and cashews on a cookie sheet and toast in the oven for 6-8 minutes, being careful not to burn them. Set aside to cool.

3. Once your nuts are cooled, roughly chop half of the toasted nuts. Place all of your nuts into a large mixing bowl with blueberries and hemp seeds.

4. In a saucepan over a low heat, combine almond butter and maple syrup, stirring frequently. Once they are thoroughly combined, remove from the heat and add in your vanilla extract and a pinch of salt. Stir to combine.

7. Place your baking dish into the fridge and allow to set overnight before cutting into bars.

7. Once they have fully set overnight, remove from the dish and cut into bars.
