Ingredients

  • 1 cup almonds
  • 1/3 cup brazil nuts
  • 1/4 cup roasted and salted peanuts
  • 1/3 cup puffed rice cereal
  • 2 teaspoons ground flaxseed
  • 1/4 cup dried mango cut into small pieces
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened coconut
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons brown rice syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • pinch of salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a large bowl and spatula with baking spray. Line and 8 x 8 inch baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. Spread the almonds and brazil nuts in a single layer in the baking pan. Bake until toasted and fragrant, about 10 minutes.
  3. Coarsely chop all of the nuts and place them in the prepared bowl. Add the cereal, flaxseed, mango, and coconut. Stir until combined.
  4. In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, heat the honey and brown-rice syrup until it reaches 260 degrees on a candy thermometer. Add vanilla and stir. Pour the mixture over the nut mixture and stir to combine.
  5. Pour the mixture into the prepared baking pan, and using the spatula, press the mixture into the pan so that it is even. Let pan sit at room temperature for 30 minutes. Cut into bars, wrap individually in plastic wrap and store in a sealed container for up to two weeks.
