  • 1 1/2 cups ground or finely chopped almonds Add to list
  • 1 1/2 cups ground or finely chopped walnuts Add to list
  • 1/2 cup ground or finely chopped cashews Add to list
  • 1/4 cup sesame or pumpkin seeds Add to list
  • 1 1/2 cups dried fruit such as raisins, cranberries, blueberries, chopped apricots, dates or dried coconut Add to list
  • 3/4 cup sweetener such as honey, agave nectar, maple syrup or molasses Add to list
  • 1/2 cup dried kelp, crumbled into small pieces Add to list
  • Spices such as cinnamon, cardamom or nutmeg (optional) Add to list


Preheat oven to 325° F. Oil a 7- by 11-inch baking dish.

Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl. The mixture will be somewhat sticky. Using wet fingers, press it down into the prepared pan.

Bake for 15 to 45 minutes depending on how crunchy and roasted you would like it. Cool and then cut into individual pieces.


Another option is to roll the mixture into balls with wet hands and enjoy them raw.
