  • ½ cup raw pumpkin seeds
  • 1 cup raw walnuts, roughly chopped
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil, melted (or sub avocado oil)
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp sea salt


  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the coconut chips, almonds, pumpkin seeds, walnuts, cinnamon and sea salt. In a separate smaller bowl, mix together the mashed banana, melted coconut oil and vanilla extract. Pour over dry mixture and stir to coat.
