1/2 cup pumpkin seeds, chopped
1/2 cup raw walnuts, chopped
1/2 cup dried cranberries (optional)
1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips
1 cup gluten-free oats
1/4 -1/2 cup shredded, unsweetened coconut
1 1/2 cups nut butter (almond butter or smooth or chunky peanut butter is good too)
2 Tbsps. coconut nectar
1 cup almond milk

Directions:

Combine almonds, pumpkin seeds, walnuts, cranberries, shredded coconut, chocolate chips and oats in a bowl. Mix well.

Over medium heat, combine nut butter, almond milk and coconut nectar, stirring occasionally until the mixture thickens and simmers.

Pour the wet mixture over the dry mixture and stir well to combine.

Either roll the mixture into bite-sized balls or pour and press into a parchment-lined 9×13 brownie pan. Store in the refrigerator or freezer. Once chilled, cut into squares if using the pan.
