  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 16 Bars 1x
  • Diet: Vegetarian


Units Scale
  • 1 cup Raw Cashews
  • 1/2 cup Raw Almonds
  • 1/2 cup Unsalted Peanuts
  • 1/2 cup Dried Cherries
  • 2 tbsp Ground Flaxseed
  • 1/8 tsp Sea Salt
  • 3 tbsp Honey
  • 2 tbsp Maple Syrup
  • 1/2 cup Semi Sweet or Dark Chocolate Chips
  • 1 tsp Coconut Oil


  1. Preheat oven to 325° F. Line an 8×8 inch baking pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add the nuts, cherries and flaxseed and stir together with a spatula.
  3. Set a small sauce pan over medium-low heat and add the honey and maple syrup. Cook until the liquid just starts to simmer. Remove from heat.
  4. Pour the liquid mixture over the nuts and stir with a spatula to combine. Then pour the mixture into your prepared pan. Working quickly, press the mixture evenly into the pan. (It helps to place another piece of parchment paper over top to press evenly and avoid getting your hands sticky!)
  5. Place into the oven and bake for 15 minutes.
  6. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 15 minutes on a wire rack. Then place into the refridgerator to fully cool for 15 minutes.
  7. Just before the 15 minutes are up, make the chocolate for the bottom and deocrative topping.
  8. In a medium sized microwave safe bowl, add the dark chocolate chips and coconut oil. Microwave on 25 second intervals, stirring in between each, until the chocolate is just melted.
  9. Remove the bars from the refrigerator and place parchment onto a cutting board. Using a sharp knife, slice the bars into 16 equal portions.
  10. Set a silpat out on a large sheet tray.
  11. Using an spatula or spoon, spread a thin layer of chocolate onto the bottom of each bar. Place onto the silpat. Continue with remaining bars.
  12. Using the remaining chocolate, drizzle chocolate over top of the bars for a decorative finish.
  13. Place the bars back into the refrigerator for the chocolate to fully harden. Bars will keep in an airtight container for 5-7 days. Enjoy!
