Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Spread all nuts on a baking pan.
  2. Toast all nuts in pan for about 10 minutes at 300F. Allow them to get only a little bit of brown and take out of the oven.
  3. Allow to cool to handle, but not completely cold. In the meantime, make the chocolate layer:
  4. Melt 2 tbsp coconut butter, 2 tsp ghee, 2 tsp cocoa powder, 1/2 tsp vanilla and 1/2 tsp erythritol together in a sauce pan at low heat. This doesn't take long or much heat at all.
  5. Mix thoroughly. Pour on 8x8" greased, non-stick pan in one layer to cover bottom of pan.
  6. Now that nuts are no longer hot to touch, chop them up. Cut up all nuts into at least 1/2 pieces, some like almonds and cashews into 1/4 pieces.
  7. In a bowl, mix in chopped nuts, ground flaxseed, ground chia seeds, shredded coconut and cinnamon.
  8. In a sauce pan (can be the same sauce pan used for chocolate layer), melt remaining ghee and coconut butter. (1 tbsp coconut butter and 2 tsp ghee).
  9. Mix in remaining 2 tsp erythritol and 1 tsp vanilla into melted butter mixture.
  10. Stir in butter mixture to nut mixture. Mix until uniform.
  11. Stir in egg white and allow to coat all mixture. If you only have small eggs, use 2 egg whites.
  12. Once thoroughly mixed, spoon into 8x8" pan on top of chocolate layer. Press into pan so that the nut layer is even and touches all sides of pan. Chocolate layer will mush into nuts, it's ok.
  13. Bake for 10 minutes at 325F.
  14. Remove from oven and allow to cool so that it can be handled, about 20 minutes.
  15. Cut into 16 bars (4x4 rows) and separate nuts from side of pan.
  16. Now allow to cool to room temperature.
  17. Once at room temp, set in refrigerator for about 1 hour to cool completely. Remove each bar. Store in tupperware or plastic bag, but recommended to store in refrigerator!
