Maca Energy Bars

1 cup almonds
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup flax meal
1/2 cup pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
2 T chia seeds
2 T maca powder
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/3 cup almond butter
1/2 tsp sea salt

In a food processor, grind the almonds into a course consistency.  Add them to a bowl with the sunflower seeds, maca powder, flax meal, pepitas, chia seeds and salt.  In a saucepan, combine the maple syrup, almond butter and coconut oil.  Mix until all are well combined.  Add it to the bowl with the dried ingredients.  Tear a sheet of parchment slightly bigger than an 8X8 pan. Line an 8X8 pan with the paper.  Spread in the mixture and pack down tight .  Place in the fridge to set.  About 1 hour.  I got 8 bars out of my batch.  Store them in the fridge or even freeze them for longer storage.  Enjoy!
