Ingredients:  
3 oz. almonds
3 oz. walnuts
2 oz. sesame seeds
2 oz. pumpkin seeds
1⁄6 oz. flaxseed
2 oz. unsweetened shredded coconut
2 oz. dark chocolate with a minimum of 70% cocoa solids
6 tablespoons coconut oil
4 tablespoons tahini (sesame paste)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 pinch sea salt
2 eggs
3 oz. dark chocolate with a minimum of 70% cocoa solids, for garnish (optional)

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat the oven to 350F (175C).
Mix all the ingredients in a blender or food processor until they are coarsely chopped.
Spoon the mixture into a 7x11 baking dish, preferably lined with parchment paper.
Bake for 1520 minutes, or until the cake has turned golden brown.
Let cool a little and remove from the baking dish. Divide into 20 or 24 pieces with a sharp knife.
Melt the chocolate in a water bath using a double boiler or in the micro-wave oven.
Dip each bar in the chocolate, but just about half an inch or on just one side. Let cool completely.
Keep in the refrigerator or freezer.

Tip!
Just use your favorite nuts and seeds, or what you have on hand. A healthy nut and seed mix could consist of equal parts of almonds/hazel nuts/macadamia nuts, pecan nuts/walnuts, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds and flax seeds.
The tahini (sesame paste) can be substituted with almond or nut butter. But remember that for example peanut butter has a lot more carbohydrates than sesame paste. Let your imagination run wild!
