Coconut Almond Energy Bars

You'll need:
2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1⁄2 cup whole raw almonds
1⁄2 cup whole raw cashews or peanuts
1⁄2 cup sesame seeds
1⁄2 cup raw sunflower seeds
1⁄2 cup chopped dates or raisins
1 1⁄2 cups tahini (sesame seed paste) or natural peanut butter
1 cup honey (you’ll need an entire 16-ounce bottle)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
How to make it:
1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
2. Generously coat a 10" x 15" baking sheet with cooking spray.
3. In a large bowl, combine the oats, coconut, almonds, cashews or peanuts, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, and dates or raisins.
4. Combine the tahini or peanut butter and honey in a microwaveable bowl and heat on high for 1 minute.
5. Add the vanilla extract and mix well. Add to the oat mixture. Stir until well combined.
6. Pour the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet and, with wet hands, pat into a rectangle about 1" high (your rectangle will be about 10" x 12").
7. Bake for 15 minutes, or until the edges of the bars turn golden brown. Do not overbake. The bars will still feel tacky in the center but will firm up as they cool.
